What is the goal of chiropractic care during pregnancy?
The goal of chiropractic care during pregnancy is to provide safe and effective relief of a variety of symptoms and to improve overall function during the pre and postnatal period. Some symptoms that may be alleviated with the help of your chiropractor are; nerve pressure and muscular strain, reduced localized muscle pain and extremity pain. Chiropractic care can also help your body to function better in general to reduce swelling, morning sickness, and hormonal swings. It can possibly help to make labor more quick and easy.
What is one of the main ways chiropractic care can help during pregnancy?
During pregnancy the growing fetus puts a great deal of strain on the mother’s spine, buttocks and legs. A common complaint during pregnancy is sciatic nerve pain. Chiropractic care can help to alleviate sciatica.
Read Dr. Calaway’s recent blog article about Pregnancy Chiropractic Care in Dallas, Tx for more information.
When can you start chiropractic care during pregnancy?
The earlier the better. Chiropractic care can assist in helping the body to run more smoothly during all stages of your pregnancy.
What makes your chiropractic practice different?
I look at my patients as whole people. My goal is to develop a program in the office and at home. I call it a whole body approach. In the office we use chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture and massage therapy. But treatment doesn’t end there. We send our patients home with a comprehensive plan. Exercises designed to maintain health. And diet recommendations to improve overall wellness. I don’t simply adjust you and send you on your way. I make sure to work on underlying issues so that you maintain your health over time.
What about pediatric chiropractic care?
We treat all ages of children at my practice starting with infants. Some things it can help with are colic, allergies, ADD, sports injury and cold and flu symptoms.
