Chiropractic Care

I use to think that chiropractic care was for when you had an injury. I remember my dad seeing a chiropractor after he threw out his back. During my pregnancy with Emily I had some really bad round ligament pains. My midwife suggested I go see a chiropractor. Boy am I glad I did!! Not only did I get help with the round ligament pains but the rest of my pregnancy was a lot more comfortable than my pregnancies with Sean and Maddy. I'm still amazed at how comfortable I was all the way up until I went into labor. ...all thanks to getting adjusted often.

The kids go with me to my appointments often because of hubby's work schedule. I love how family friendly the office is. Maddy started getting adjusted in hopes to solve her constipation issues. We did a dairy elimination diet at the same time. At the time we thought the diet change was what worked. Since then, we've had dairy slip ups and began noticing that those slip ups didn't make a difference. She now gets small amounts of dairy without a problem. I believe chiropractic care is what helped. She went weekly for awhile and is now going monthly. Emily had her first adjustment at 5 days old. She's also going monthly now. Sean went for his first adjustment last week. He has a little bit going on so he will go back in a week.

Thank you for sharing your story with other families. Many Blessings, Dr. Lou and Dr. Tiffany

  2. My kids love the Chiropractor. We take them for regular adjustments and to deal with every thing from constipation to ear infections. I don't know what I would do with out it!

  3. Just thought I would let you know that I awarded you with the Versatile Blogger Award over on my site.

    Have a great day!

  4. If your child experiences recurrent ear infections, it is important that you talk to your chiropractor. Doctors of chiropractic are licensed and trained to diagnose and treat patients of all ages and will use a gentler type of treatment for children. By helping to restore the normal function of the tissues of the neck, otitis media can usually be significantly reduced or completely eliminated in most children, without the use of antibiotics and surgery.

  5. I didn't know kids could be given chiropractic care as young as 5 months old. I just thought that their bones would still be too brittle by then, and too much pressure and tension from the procedure might do some damage, but chiropractors really do wonders for our body. Who would've thought that a little pressure here and there can solve a constipation problem, right?

  6. @Gwen - I'm pretty sure the chiropractor knows the right pressure for Maddy's fragile body. It's actually nice that she was introduced to a chiropractor as early as possible. Chiropractors will be very helpful in maintaining the hormonal balance and continuous growth at her body. Don't worry about Maddy. I'm sure their chiro is very careful. :)

  7. Chiropractic care covers not just injuries, but even pregnancy issues as well. It's also helpful in improving blood circulation and preventing sterility. You just have to make sure that you have a trustworthy and reliable chiropractor at your side to assist with your needs.
