Chiropractic Care for the Newton Family

Many people are surprised to discover that at Allasso Chiropractic Inc., we provide regular chiropractic care for the whole family. In fact, some of our youngest practice members are just days old. Our families recognize that in order to be healthy, they need to have a fully functioning nervous system because it controls every function in their body. Not only is it safe for children and pregnant women to receive chiropractic care, it is highly beneficial.

Chiropractic During Pregnancy

Chiropractic care is essential to every pregnancy. By removing interference to the mother’s nervous system, which coordinates all of the systems and functions in her body, it promotes a healthy pregnancy and supports the development of the baby.

Pregnancy can be very trying on a mother’s body. The hormones and extra weight gain can cause added stress to the mother’s nervous system, resulting in backache, neck pain and hip discomfort. Chiropractic adjustments remove that stress and help provide structural balance and stability for the mother, which helps to make pregnancy a much more comfortable experience. Chiropractic adjustments also help realign the pelvis, and studies show that women receiving chiropractic care through their pregnancy tend to have shorter labor times, less likelihood of back labor, and their need for pain medication and medical intervention was reduced.

Additionally, adjusting the mother’s pelvis helps to create more room in the uterus for the baby to develop and allows the baby to move into the best position for birth. And if your baby is breeched, Dr. Rob is certified in the Webster technique, a safe and gentle correction which removes constraint in the uterus and allows the baby to turn its head down into an optimal birthing position.

Chiropractic For Your Newborn and Children

Every time children come to our office, Dr Rob checks them, and if he detects any interference in their nervous system, he gives them a gentle and specific adjustment. This adjustment removes the interference, and allows for optimal health and function of the entire body. This interference may be caused by multiple factors in babies and children including:

  • The birth process, especially in difficult births that require forceps, vacuum or
  • Seemingly innocent occurrences such as repetitive bouncing on the knee and as babies learn to sit, crawl and walk.
  • Regular childhood activities like riding a bike, carrying a heavy backpack, playing sports, using a laptop/ cell phone.

The resulting irritation to the nerve system won’t necessarily manifest itself as pain in a baby or a child, but may lead to various health concerns like colic, sleep disturbances, allergic reactions, hyperactivity and ear infections. And since many of the factors listed above are experienced in everyday childhood, having their nervous systems checked on a regular basis ensures optimal health and neurological development in babies and children.

How Can Doctor Rob Help?

Dr. Rob will take a case history and perform a careful and thorough examination on your child’s spine to look for nerve interference, and if found, he will correct it with gentle adjustments. Dr. Rob assures as much time as needed to answer all of your questions, so you are comfortable and confident in our ability to allow your children to express their health potential.

Today we find more parents bringing their children to Dr. Rob for day-to-day health concerns such as colds, ear infections, fevers, colic, asthma, tonsillitis, allergies, bed-wetting, stomach-aches, learning disabilities, and attention problems.
