Do you know that chiropractic care can make a difference in the health of your unborn baby? The mere touch of a hand or instrument to your spine can relieve pain and stress, which will affect both you and your child. Additionally, chiropractic care is essential to the growth and development of a child.
Pediatric and Pregnancy Chiropractic Care is one of the expertise of Spinal Care of Nevada. Dr. Devin Luzod clarifies some concerns and arguments regarding the safety and effectiveness of chiropractic care during pregnancy and among children.
The Safety of Pediatric Chiropractic Care
Children are more susceptible to trauma because they explore new things and get into accidents often. They always seem so happy, never bothering with care in the world.
They like the freedom of being able to explore without fear or worry about what could happen. But it's also not uncommon for a child's curiosity to lead them into an accident where injury becomes inevitable - which can be quite traumatic if severe enough.
According to a study, only 0.53% of patients experience mild adverse events following chiropractic PMT for children between the ages 4-14 years old in published literature.
The modern chiropractic treatment of children is safe. However, it should be noted that one out of every 100 to 200 patients may experience mild side effects. These are usually transient and last less than a day without needing further care beyond the initial treatments from the chiropractors.
Spinal Care of Nevada emphasizes Pediatric Chiropractic Care. Dr. Devin is experienced in the newest forms of treatment for children and has been awarded a fellowship by International Chiropractic Pediatrics Association. He finished a 120-hour course focusing on pediatric chiropractic.
Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy
During pregnancy, your ligaments and joints are loosened by hormones that help pave the way for the baby to exit. But these hormones also cause you to be much more clumsy than usual with a larger stomach and less stable balance.
Dr. Devin studies the care of pregnant mothers and emphasizes how women can experience pain in their lower back and legs, even if they have had no trouble with past pregnancies. In particular, as a mother nears her third trimester she releases Relaxin. It is a hormone that allows ligaments to expand and surrounding structures to shift. The shift may exacerbate any existing pains or instability due to low-back strain that was not present during previous pregnancies.
Chiropractic treatment during pregnancy is a safe and effective way to treat common aches that pregnant patients experience.
