This is our third blog in this ongoing series on chiropractic care before, during and after pregnancy. During this blog, we’re going to talk more about the birth experience and the post-partum stages that a new mom may expect, as well as chiropractic care for your newborn.
This is the second of our ongoing blog series on chiropractic care for pregnant moms. In the previous blog, we talked about how chiropractic care can impact women who are trying to conceive. Whether you are conceiving naturally or through fertility treatments, chiropractic care can support and aid this process by encouraging good spinal and central nervous system health, as well as reproductive well-being.
Ladies, are you thinking of having a baby? Are you making plans for your next pregnancy, or considering having your first child? Did you know that chiropractic care can be an important element of your prenatal and postnatal health plans? We’ll help you get your spine and central nervous system in tip-top shape first, before you conceive.
At some point in your life you’ll probably be involved in a traffic accident. Despite our best intentions, we cannot control our environment or other drivers around us. Car accidents result in thousands of injuries in this country every year. Many people injured in auto accidents might spend weeks or months in chiropractic care, dealing with those injuries.
This month, we’re going to delve into the most common injuries that we see. We’re beginning with Sports-related injuries.
Sports are excellent ways for people of all ages to maintain good health and weight, and to keep active. Sports are also great practices for our children to learn conflict resolution and develop the eye-hand coordination that is so instrumental to our coordination.
We’re sure you’ve heard the term ‘slipped disc’ before and if you suffer from back problems, you might be wondering if this term applies to you.
All this month, we’re blogging about specific spinal disorders like Sciatica and Sacroiliac (SI) Joint Dysfunction. Now, we’re tackling the topic of slipped discs, one of the most common complaints among those who suffer with back trouble.
This is the second in our three-part series on specific spinal ailments. In our last series, you learned about Sciatica. In this installment, let’s talk about Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction.
Sacroiliac (say-kro-ill-ee-ak) sounds like a mouthful! Your sacroiliac joint is also referred to as your ‘SI’ by chiropractors and it’s the joint that connects your hips to the sacrum, or the triangular bone between your tailbone and lumbar spine. Your sacroiliac joint absorbs shock between your hips and your upper body. The SI joint itself doesn’t move very much, although small movements help to absorb shock as well as ease of movement with forward and backward bending. It is surrounded by several ligaments, which supports the joint.
