Pregnancy, Extremity Adjustment and Children's Chiropractic in Bellefontaine, OH

You know the health benefits of chiropractic care firsthand. But what about your children? Have you ever considered bringing them in for a chiropractic checkup? Let your kids experience those same health benefits with children's chiropractic treatment at Elkins Chiropractic.

Spinal Stress in Kids

Surprisingly, the first stress placed on a child's spinal column is during the birthing process. Equally surprising is the fact that 26% of children surveyed at school reported a history of back pain. A child's spine is frequently subjected to repeated forces in the process of learning to walk as well as a multitude of childhood mishaps, sports-related injuries and postural strains. Many adults who come to a chiropractor's office, show evidence of childhood injuries to their spine that are contributing to their pain today. This is why it is crucially important to have your child's spine checked, especially if you suspect there may be a problem.

Common Childhood Maladies

Fortunately, chiropractic care has had many positive results in treating some very common childhood maladies. Problems like colic, headaches, ear infections, scoliosis, asthma, and even some cases of behavioral problems like bed-wetting have been successfully treated with chiropractic care. In fact, a recent study showed that children under chiropractic care suffered from fewer ear infections than those whose parents sought medical care alone.

Are Chiropractic Adjustments Safe for Children?

Absolutely! Because a child's skeletal system is still developing, there is a great deal of elasticity within the joints. Light pressure is usually all that is needed to adjust a child's spine. So the next time you come to our office, bring your children. The few minutes you invest in your child's spinal checkup may save them needless suffering now and in the future.

Today's woman constantly juggles an incredible number of responsibilities: jobs, children, friendships, marriages, errands, appointments—the list is endless! You have got to be healthy just to keep up. While women have special health concerns during every phase of their lives, pregnancy is certainly one of the most important and complex phases. Although the changes women experience from pregnancy are natural, a little extra help is sometimes needed to cope with the dramatic changes in their bodies.

Pregnancy Changes

Your Musculoskeletal System

In addition to the noticeable changes pregnancy causes in a woman's body, pregnancy can cause subtle changes in the musculoskeletal system, changes your chiropractor is able to detect and correct. Because the baby lies forward in the woman's body during pregnancy, her center of gravity shifts and the spine alters itself to accommodate this change. As a result, many expectant mothers may experience low back and pelvic pain. These stresses and strains can be relieved with regular chiropractic care. Many chiropractic patients report their deliveries were faster and more comfortable than deliveries prior to chiropractic care. It's especially important during pregnancy that nerve impulses flow from the brain to all parts of the body. A slightly out-of-place vertebra can create nerve irritation that snarls the body's communication system. Using gentle spinal adjustments, the chiropractic doctor can relieve this nerve irritation, allowing the body's energy to flow freely again and eliminate periodic pain through nature's own healing power. Our doctor will use special, modified techniques during your pregnancy to make your spinal adjustments easy and comfortable.

The Perfect Pregnancy

Isn't it time you tried chiropractic care for you and to get ready for your future family? It's easier to be fit, healthy and experience a trouble-free pregnancy when your body freely sends the right messages. Chiropractic care focuses on the overall effects of spinal misalignment on the nerves that carry health-giving energy to every cell of the body. Chiropractic care helps women get well and stay well -- before, during and after their pregnancies. Call our office now at to schedule an appointment and get a clear assessment of how to have your best pregnancy.
