The female body is nothing less than incredible. The ability that women have to change and adapt to create life amazes us everyday. However, with great change often comes discomfort. In managing this we utilize the Webster Technique. Webster is a specific chiropractic sacral analysis and adjustment protocol. The goal is to reduce the effects of sacral subluxation/SI joint dysfunction, and improve function in the pelvis during pregnancy and birth. The Webster Technique has been found to reduce back and pelvic pain during pregnancy, facilitate shorter labor times, and reduce the occurrence of cesarean. Postpartum care is also paramount considering the need to recover and function well enough to ensure your little one thrives! Each patient is treated individually, dependent on their story and personal goals.
Squeezing through the vaginal canal is no small feat, so much stress is placed on the baby's delicate spine and nervous system in order to be born, this stress often causes spinal misalignments. If the misalignments remain, the changes that follow can play a crucial role in the child's development. Whole milestones can be missed, for example; inability to breastfeed, have full range of motion, crawl and even digest properly. The physicians at Life Adjusted aim to facilitate proper, functional, development. At each newborn visit the child is thoroughly assessed. The misalignments are the first thing to go, ensuring proper nervous system communication. Cranial asymmetry, presence of tongue and/or lip ties and any other issues are also accounted for. Although infant adjusting may sound peculiar, the pressure used is extremely gentle, as gentle as the pressure used when selecting a ripe tomato!
What a better time for your nervous system to thrive then when you are constantly exploring, growing, and learning. With all the falls, bumps, and bruises endured everyday kiddos are perfect candidates for adjustments because adjustments directly affect the nervous system. If the nervous system is not fully functioning, symptoms such as asthma, bed wetting, allergies, behavioral issues, ear infections, and learning disabilities may arise. A well adjusted and developing toddler leads to a flourishing child and an accelerating adult.
