Spinal health is paramount.
Who needs chiropractic adjustments?
In short, everyone. Here's why:
Preconception/ Prenatal/ Postpartum Services
Whether you are trying to conceive, pregnant or postpartum, there are many benefits to be enjoyed from regular chiropractic checks and adjustments.
Infertility: While modern medicine has many options available to help with conception, they are often extremely costly and fairly invasive. Alternative approaches are affordable and noninvasive first steps that should be exhausted before moving into hormonal therapies or surgical options. If you consider that chiropractic adjustments can improve the function of the nervous system, this can benefit the function of the reproductive system, hormone production, and ultimately lead to normalization of the menstrual cycle and ovulation. All without adding or taking anything!
Pregnancy: Pregnancy should be a pleasant experience. With our busy schedules and active lifestyles, sometimes it's hard to give yourself the downtime you need to feel great during pregnancy. Hip pain, low back pain and achy joints will often accompany pregnancy. While common, it's not proper to call these symptoms normal. Gentle adjustments to the pregnancy patient not only help with keeping your ever changing structure in good alignment, but also help give your baby the best environment to grow in! Webster Technique can help keep the pelvis aligned and mobile, which can help keep baby aligned within the uterus!
Postpartum: After baby arrives, your body will start to rapidly change. Joints will tighten up, your muscles will behave differently in an effort to adjust to your new postural alignment. This can be an uncomfortable process, especially if you're one of the few whose relaxin hormone persists for a long time after baby is born. Nursing a newborn and lack of good sleep can be really hard on your body, creating tension and misalignment of the structures of the body. Allowing yourself some self care will help you feel better, sleep better and ultimately enjoy your time with baby more.
These precious, squishy little beings have been growing and working hard for many months in preparation for their arrival....they're born practically perfect.
Newborns and infants may not seem like the likely candidates for chiropractic care, but they experience several traumas within the first few months of their lives that can leave them subluxated. The birth process is beautiful, but abnormal positioning in the womb and the traumas of birth can have an impact on your little ones. Mechanical forces of compression and traction during the birth process cause injury in approximately 7 of 1000 live births. This does not account for an unknown number of babies that experience subclinical trauma, which can lead to symptoms and difficulty later on in life.
Some of the most common infant conditions seen in a pediatric practice are reflux, ear infections and constipation. While these conditions are nothing to ignore, it's worth first considering the safest options available for your baby to help them recover and grow when they're function is sub-optimal. Current research shows that chiropractic care for infants is safe and effective in helping the body naturally resolve these conditions, as well as many others! Structural integrity and a healthy, functioning nervous system are necessary for babies of all ages. Chiropractic care started early can help shape your child's future health and wellness.
As a chiropractor with advanced training in pediatrics, Dr. Bunge will do a thorough exam and analysis of your newborn. If there is any indication of subluxation (dysfunction of a joint complex accompanied by impairment of the nervous system), it will be addressed through a gentle, specific chiropractic adjustment. Dr. Bunge will also help you track your child's developmental milestones, growth, and address any concerns or questions you may have about your child's diet, activity or behavior.
Your baby deserves an optimum start in life, and a clear and fully functioning nervous system is one of the most important ways you can allow them that. Family Tree Chiropractic is here for you!
Kids are growing and changing everyday...sometimes their body and brain don't stay in sync.
More and more parents are seeking chiropractic care for their children than ever before. Parents are looking for ways to ensure their children are set up early in their life instilled with healthy habits and the best possible foundation for future wellness. Regular chiropractic care, in conjunction with responsible life choices, can put them on the right path.
When a family understands the "how" and "why" of chiropractic care, they also realize that the small size of their child (and perhaps the absence of pain or chronic illness) does not mean they arent' at risk for experiencing neurological or biomechanical dysfunction related to subluxations (compromised motion segments within the spine). Dr. Bunge has elected to obtain advanced training in pediatric chiropractic care, so that families can rest assured that their children are getting the most effective, gentle and specific chiropractic care available.
10 common reasons parents take their children to see a chiropractor:
To encourage good neural plasticity (brain and nerve development).
To support their child’s overall health and wellbeing.
To help strengthen their child’s immunity and potentially reduce the incidence of colds, ear-aches and general illness.
To assist with colic and Irritable Baby Syndrome.
To help with asthma, breathing difficulties and allergies.
To encourage good spinal posture.
To help improve their child’s ability to concentrate.
To assist with behavioural disorders.
To help alleviate digestive problems.
To assist with bed-wetting and sleep issues.
Family Wellness Services
The most precious gift we can ask for is a happy, healthy family.
No matter what stage of life you are in, or what your level of wellness is, chiropractic care is one of the best ways to ensure that you are maintaining your optimum structural integrity and functional capacity by staying subluxation free.
Subluxations are a joint or motion segment dysfunction that can have a negative impact on your neurological and/or biomechanical integrity. Toxins, trauma and thoughts are the three main culprits leading to subluxation, and subluxation can put a lot of neurological and physiological stress on the body's ability to function effectively.
Overtaxing ourselves on a regular basis, not taking care of our physical condition and mishandling the stresses of daily life can wreak havoc on our mind and body-the best we can do is make sure that our system is always up for the challenge of handling these stressors so that we don't set ourselves up for mental unrest, unrelenting pain or chronic illness.
We only have this one life to live, and keeping ourselves well helps improve not only our own quality of life, but the life of our families as a whole. Family Tree Chiropractic encourages taking advantage of our family care plans from day one!
