Many health issues in newborns can be addressed with chiropractic treatment. Chronic infections, breathing problems, colic, allergies, ear infections, sleep disturbances, and nursing difficulties are often the result of nervous system strain that can be present from birth.
Dr. Cardinal encourages chiropractic checkups for infants following birth and continuing through the physical stages of childhood development. Misalignments in the spine (subluxations) left untreated through periods of growth can lead to health issues in adulthood, and negatively affect one’s ability to function at their best.
By correcting subluxation and fixing posture problems Dr. Cardinal helps ensure full functioning of the nervous system, which controls every aspect of the human body. A strong nervous system helps children resist infection and increases their overall wellness.
Dr. Cardinal uses specific, gentle techniques for children’s little bodies. Our patients not only report increased health benefits, they also say they enjoy their adjustments and look forward to future visits!
Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy
Chiropractic care during pregnancy is essential for maintaining optimal health, for both the mother and the baby. Dr. Cardinal helps pregnant women release spinal stress and maintain good posture, so women feel more comfortable physically throughout their pregnancy, and are assured their reproductive system is receiving full nerve function through the spinal column. Freed from subluxation all the body’s systems function at a higher level, helping to prevent illness while elevating overall health, which is critical to helping women handle the challenges of pregnancy and delivery.
As with children, the techniques Dr. Cardinal uses with pregnant women are gentle. Chiropractic care not only feels good – it’s drug-free! For over a century, chiropractors have helped pregnant women maintain their pregnancy, control morning sickness, and more easily deliver healthy, full-term babies.
