At FFC, we understand that the health of a pregnant woman is vitally important because the care that we provide not only benefits the mother but also benefits the baby. At this crucial time in life, a properly functioning nervous system is critical to the development of the baby and the well-being of the mother. This early proactive care extends beyond simply treating one's pain.
By insuring that the pelvis and the spine are in proper alignment and motion (bio-mechanics), chiropractic care helps to ensure that the baby is developing with plenty of room to grow within the womb. When maintaining this proper alignment and motion throughout the mother's pregnancy, this can improve the ability of the expecting mother to have a safe and natural birth process. This is extremely vital to both the health of the mother and baby.
Modern birth today has portrayed as a process that is often traumatic. It has been looked at as a ''medical condition'' rather than an incredibly safe and natural process of life. A woman's body is designed with perfection for the birth process and difficulties may arise only if the mother isn't functioning at 100%.
The birth process is often the first cause of subluxations, especially if there has been many interventions with this natural process. Chiropractors are the only doctors trained to detect, monitor, manage, and replace these subluxations. By doing so, the course is set for a healthy newborn.
As children continue to grow, there spines undergo many forms of trauma as they are learning to crawl, walk, and play. It is been said that child undergoes roughly 1,500 falls before the age of 5. Often times these falls may again result in subluxations which when detected early enough may be taken care of by the doctor of chiropractic.
