Chiropractic for pregnancy
Over 50% of pregnant women complain of lower back pain during their pregnancy, and just as many experience headaches, migraines, rib pain and difficulty getting comfortable in bed. This pain is mostly caused by the body trying to balance weight between an overworked spine and the body's support system around the spine. These stressors can lead to more uncomfortable pregnancies, while chiropractic can help this!
Research has shown that women who received chiropractic care during their third trimester of pregnancy were able to carry and deliver with far more comfort. The need for painkillers was also reduced by half in several patients in the same study. As one of the top chiropractic practices in Cedar Falls and Waterloo, we are trained in chiropractic for pregnant women and how to provide comfort and reduce stress during a special time in a woman's life!

Most people don't know that infants and children can benefit from chiropractic care just as adults do. Infants, in particular, are susceptible to spinal problems caused by the birthing process. If joints in the spine aren't moving how they should be due to trauma, this can result in increased stress and discomfort for the infant. Chiropractic care for infants and children can correct these potential problems through careful and effective adjustments that remedy the poor movement in the spine.
Children benefit from chiropractic care because many problems they experience as adults can stem from their childhood. Children often have poor posture (something that is extremely common today) and suffer lots of small traumas that can add up. Posture problems can result from too many hours in front of a computer or television, playing rough with friends or carrying heavy backpacks all day long at school.
It is best to deal with any potential injury, postural problem or musculoskeletal condition as soon as possible with a Cedar Valley Chiropractic doctor in Cedar Falls to keep your child as healthy as possible and prevent life-long issues from starting through regular chiropractic care.
