Chiropractic care is the natural, drug free choice of millions of expecting mothers around the globe. Over the years research has shown that women who receive Chiropractic care throughout their entire pregnancy report faster and more comfortable deliveries.
Throughout the duration of pregnancy many women experience increasing lower back pain. Causes include the
shifting of weight-bearing structures, hormonal changes and laxity of connective ligaments. Chiropractic care can aid in relieving the pain by helping to normalize the body’s nervous system.
Our office is equipped with state of the art adjusting tables specially designed for the pregnant female. Many pregnant patients find the ability to lie face down during their third trimester very relaxing.
Many spinal problems seen in adults occur during the birthing process. At birth a newborn’s spine endures a tremendous amount of stress and trauma. During delivery a child’s head may be rotated up to 180 degrees and pulled on with upwards of 75-100 pounds of pressure. Just as in an adult body misalignments of a newborn’s spinal bones can cause decreased nerve function throughout the body. Such conditions can lead to colic, poor appetite, breathing difficulties, ear infections and allergic reactions. . If left untreated any misalignments of the spine that occur during the birth can progress into much more serious conditions later on in life.
Chiropractic adjusting techniques are modified to fit a child's size, weight, and unique spinal problems. By properly applying gentle pressure to the misalignned segment a Chiropractor can restore proper spinal structure and function. Such vertebral corrections promote proper spinal hygiene which is extremely important for proper growth during a child's rapid stages of development.
Recent Studies for Ear Infections and Allergies:
Ear infections (otitis media) may be caused by improper drainage of the deep neck lymphatics. This is what causes fluid to build up behind the ear drum which in turn causes the it to bulge and inflame. The most common treatment parents choose for their children is antibiotic therapy, usually amoxicillin. However, amoxicillin treatment was shown to be ineffective for the treatment of persistent asymptomatic middle-ear effusions (fluid) in infants and children in the December '91 issue of the Journal Of The American Medical Association. In fact, after administration of amoxicillin, occurrence of fluid in the ear was two to six times greater.
When the drainage of the lymphatics are blocked fluid builds up in the inner ear and becomes a breeding ground for viruses and bacteria. The major factors for this improper drainage are increased muscle tone or spasms. Since there are no drugs that kill viruses and the antibiotics used on bacteria seem ineffective, a more natural approach is a Chiropractic adjustment. A Chiropractic adjustment applied to the neck can relax tense musculature responsible for blocking the drainage of fluids from the ears and neck allowing the infection to heal. This also decreases or eliminates the recurrence of future ear infections.
The human body has its own powerful allies to defend against foreign substances that invade it. The body’s lymph system, white corpuscles, waste-eliminating skin glands and urinary system can protect us against common allergens. Through Chiropractic research we now know that these defense mechanisms are all directly controlled by the human nervous system. Doctors of Chiropractic specialize in non-surgical drug free treatment of the structural imbalances within the body. The Colonia Chiropractic Center places special emphasis on the spine and it’s effects on the nervous system.
If you suffer from any kind of allergy, chances are that Chiropractic care can help you lead a normal, comfortable life by removing interference with normal nerve transmission. Nerve transmission interference is mainly caused by compression of a soft nerve by a bone or muscle somewhere in the body. A Chiropractor locates the underlying fundamental source of the problem and corrects it without the use of dangerous drugs or surgery. By restoring proper nerve flow the body’s defense mechanisms will have a better chance of fighting off allergenic stimuli.
