Pediatrics and Pregnancy Care

At Clear Health Chiropractic we make it one of our most important missions to serve children and expecting mothers in our area.

The nervous system controls and coordinates every other system in the entire body and when the body experiences stress to the nervous system, our body doesn't function the way it should.  In children this is more evident than the general population because of the sensitivity of the growing body.  Through science, it has been proven that the birthing process is one of the most traumatic experiences to a child, perhaps in their entire life!  When the mother pushes and the doctor pulls, misalignments in the neck are incredibly common and when misalignments occur in the spine, putting stress on the nervous system, their tiny body can't function the way it should.  These misalignments which affect the nervous system are also referred to as subluxations or "pinched nerves."

INFANTS AND CHILDREN

Children come to our office suffering from allergies, colic, ear infections, ADHD, chronic colds as well as numerous other issues.  Some people choose to accept these issues as 'normal' yet these issues aren't 'normal' at all and all too often can be linked to nervous system distress.  Whether these issues stem from the birthing process or the everyday falls and tumbles that come with being a child, it is incredibly important to make sure that your child is checked for any subluxations.

Under neurologically based chiropractic corrective care we are able to restore function to the body the way it was originally intended. When stress to the nervous system is removed, research has shown that improvements can be seen in most aspects of health. When the nervous system is functioning the way it should, this results in all other systems functioning at a higher level, including the immune system, digestive system, respiratory system and cardiovascular system, among others.

 

 

EXPECTING MOTHERS

Expecting mothers should know chiropractic not only helps with the aches and pains of pregnancy but a more relaxed body often results in a decrease in labor time by up to 40%, which has been proven through some of the most recent research.  By removing stress and interference to the body, the pregnancy and birthing processes have the potential to be much easier on mom and baby.  Dr. Erik has studied in some of the most advanced techniques regarding pregnancy and children and uses an extremely gentle approach to make sure the structure and function of the body is where it should be.

proper alignment of the pelvis is essential for the normal position of the baby and an easier delivery. Any misalignment of the pelvis can create torsion in the uterus, leading to in-utero constraint, which prevents the baby from moving freely. If the baby can’t get into the ideal position, labor is more difficult and less likely to result in a natural delivery. The Webster technique is a specialized chiropractic technique used to prevent in-utero constraint and assist the baby in finding the ideal position for birth.

Today parent's are more aware than ever before of the nasty combinations of drugs being administered to children.  Some reports suggest that up to 25% of children in the US are on prescription medication today.  This rate is staggering and has led to parents searching for a better alternative.  Drugs are simply a way to mask the symptoms of the underlying problem that is occurring in the body.  At Clear Health Chiropractic we look for the root cause of any current health conditions and correct them at the source.  If the body is allowed to function free of nervous system interference, you and your child will be healthier because of it.  Everyone deserves to function at their maximum potential and through principled chiropractic care we are able to provide that to you in a safe, effective and gentle manner.
