Chiropractic and Breastfeeding

Chiropractic and Breastfeeding

We are seeing lots of pregnant mamas at Rushmore Family Chiropractic! We love treating entire families and offering chiropractic and wellness solutions to the very young, the very old and everyone in between.

Both Dr. Ashley Kauffman and Dr. Becky Beilstein have infants who are nursing (they gave birth to Owen and Aria last October – on the same day, in fact!). Many of our nursing patients have expressed worries about breastfeeding their newborns. We know what that’s like and are happy to offer solutions.

Teens and Posture:

All of this time on our phones and tablets is leading many, particularly in America, into a more sedentary lifestyle. Not only are we sitting more, we’re often in a hunched position which can cause strain to the neck and spine. You may even notice changes in your neck alignment, muscle strain around the neck and other spinal differences. Not to mention, changes in your vision caused by excessive screen time.

We thought it was a good time to share a little bit more about the team at Rushmore Family Chiropractic so you could get to know us each better!

Watersports

Watersports

Summertime means lots of outdoor time for folks around the Black Hills. We spend many long winter months in cold and snow so when summer arrives, we want to spend as much time as possible in the sun. There’s nothing better on a hot day than splashing in the cool waters of Lake Pactola or Angostura, or skipping along by Rapid Creek. People who live in the Black Hills are also known for being very active, particularly during our sunny season and that includes our love for watersports. Everybody’s looking for a way to cool down during the hottest days of summer and luckily, we have plenty of lakes, streams and waterways to beat the heat.

Allergy Season

Allergy Season

If you live in Rapid City, you can’t help but notice the cottonwood this spring and summer. It’s been a particularly active season for cottonwood and other environment allergens. In fact, it’s literally in the air all around us, flying around like warm weather snow! Many of our patients and their families suffer with seasonal allergies and, for those affected by cottonwood, it has felt particularly brutal this season.

Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction

One of the more common complaints we see in women ages 30 and up, are hip issues. The hip is connected to the spine, and often a problem will manifest higher in the spine but be the result of issues that begin at the hip. SI Joint Dysfunction is a common problem for women who are at or past, child-bearing age.
