Prenatal & Pediatric Services
Chiropractic care is great for all ages and types of people, including pregnant women. There is a gentle and effective style of adjustments called the Webster Technique that is designed specifically for pregnancy.
The goal of the Webster Technique is to balance the tension in the joints, muscles and ligaments of the pelvis. This is done mainly by correcting misalignments of the Sacrum. As the body grows with pregnancy, weight distribution changes which can lead to different stresses than the body is used to. Often times this can lead to a difficult labor and delivery.
Difficulties in labor and delivery can be caused by a variety of reasons. Some of these include malpositioning of baby in utero, inadequate pelvic muscle functioning, and contraction of uterine space. By adjusting the sacrum and checking the ligaments of the pelvis and uterus, the body can be in a more relaxed and ready state for the birth process.
Here at Superior Family Chiropractic we love to help moms at all stages of pregnancy from preconception, through the postpartum phase. Many moms that receive Chiropractic care with their current pregnancy, report drastic improvements in their labor and delivery experience. One of the things our patients love best about getting adjusted during pregnancy is that they can comfortably lay face down with the help of our special prenatal pillows and table setup!
Just as you visit the dentist regularly to maintain oral health, it is important to have your child’s spine checked and maintained as they are growing! Our focus is ensuring that the nervous system has every opportunity to work efficiently and effectively. Our office has one of the only pediatric certified chiropractors in the entire UP.
Nerve irritations (or vertebral subluxations) occur as a part of your child’s normal daily life and disrupt the nervous system. They may result from physical, chemical and emotional stressors to our health. Examples of these include the birth process, bad posture, sleeping position, knocks and falls, poor food choices, dehydration, exposure to chemicals and toxins, as well as stress and anxiety.
Most children do not have the pain and muscle tension that adults do, and show different symptoms. Some signs a child may benefit from an adjustment include latching issues or colic, frequent ear infections, balance or coordination issues, bedwetting, constipation, or headaches.
Through a very gentle and specific hands-on approach, adjustments work to restore balance to the child’s body. Using a variety of low-force adjusting techniques, normal motion is maintained in the joints throughout the spine. This removes any nerve irritation or interference that may be occurring as the child is growing.
Chiropractic care is safe and effective for children of all ages. It is never too early or too late to get started with care for your child! All Chiropractors are trained to check and care for kids, however some have specialized with additional training. The designations CACCP, and Webster Certified indicate additional certifications received through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) Our office has one of the only pediatric certified Chiropractors in the entire UP.
