Chiropractic Care and New Mothers

Some of the most common problems associated with pregnancy include backaches, leg pains, and swelling of lower limbs. The hormones of pregnancy that serve to soften ligaments and soft tissue to ease the birth process may also decrease stability of the spine and pelvic joints. As the baby develops and the weight of the baby adds an additional burden to the spine, spinal stability is even harder to maintain.

Spinal misalignments, called subluxations, may become the result. Pregnant women may benefit from chiropractic care throughout the course of pregnancy. Regular care may prevent the subluxations that create nerve pressure on legs, hips, muscles, and organs of the body. Proper nervous system health during pregnancy is crucial not only for the mother but also for the optimum development of the baby. In addition, regular chiropractic care may contribute to a normal, trouble free delivery! Include chiropractic therapy in your health care routine during pregnancy.

 

Acupuncture and Infertility

Acupuncture can be used to treat any type of fertility disorder including spasmed tubes. Spasmed tubes are often de-spasmed with acupuncture, though blocked tubes will not respond to acupuncture. Acupuncture is often combined with herbal remedies to treat elevated follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), repeated pregnancy loss, unexplained (idiopathic) infertility, luteal phase defect, hyperprolactinemia (when not caused by a prolactinoma), and polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) with anovulatory cycles. This also applies to the male factor including men affected with sperm-DNA-fragmentation.

Acupuncture, frequently combined with herbal medicine has been used for centuries to treat infertility. The patients can benefit from acupuncture and herbs because of the potential effect of improved ovarian and follicular function. Additionally, acupuncture can increase blood flow to the endometrium, helping to facilitate a thick, rich lining. Acupuncture is similar to physical therapy in that it is a process-oriented method of medical intervention. It is better to do more than less. Patients are commonly treated for three to four months before progressing to insemination, in vitro, or donor transfer. This pacing of treatment seems to have a therapeutic effect.

Clinical observations from the Berkeley Center for Reproductive Wellness suggest that the most effective fertility treatments involve a combination of acupuncture, herbal medicine, and traditional medicine. However, conception occasionally occurs when acupuncture and herbal medicines are used without traditional medical interventions.

 

Do children really need Chiropractic care?

Infants can’t tell you where they hurt, and children often find it difficult to describe their discomfort. From the trauma of childbirth to the bumps and falls of childhood, kids need spinal checkups. An easily correctable spinal problem early in life can develop into a serious condition later in life.

The spine houses the spinal nerves, and misalignments (subluxations) of the spine can create nerve interference that may affect the function of the tissues, muscles, bones, glands, and organs of the human body. Many children with ear infections, childhood asthma, colic, headache, decreased immunity, bed-wetting, and hyperactivity have experienced dramatic improvements while under chiropractic care. Most children enjoy and benefit from chiropractic care. Have your infants and children checked regularly by Dr. Choi.
