At Ledges Chiropractic Center we pride ourselves on the level of education and care that we provide for our patients and their families. Chiropractic is a natural drug-free surgical-free profession that focuses on the relationship between the spinal bones and the nerve system. If the nerve system is functioning well then all of the systems of the body will function optimally.However when nerve flow is disrupted or distorted because of misalignment in the spine the body is unable to communicate with itself properly which is when impairment or dysfunction occurs.A spinal bone out of alignment is known as subluxation which creates pressure on nerves and distorts the information to and from the brain.
Many parents appreciate the importance of regular check ups for their children’s teeth hearing and vision but draw a blank when it comes to a spinal check up. A spinal check up could be one of the most important check ups your children will ever have. A child’s spine is no different than ours; the spine protects billions of nerve fibers that send messages and energy to every part of their bodies. However a child’s spine is much more fragile than an adult spine. The bones muscles and ligaments are not fully developed making the spine very unstable and more easily damaged or misaligned.Have your children checked today. The sooner subluxations are detected and corrected the sooner your children can begin taking advantage of their full potential. It is safe painless and best of all- There are no side effects. Dr. Childs and Dr. Marshall have completed 200 hours of study from the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association and Dr. Childs has successfully achieved his certification in pediatrics.
Pregnancy and Chiropractic – Adjusting women through pregnancy results in a healthier pregnancy. A healthier pregnancy will make for an easier labor and delivery and a better transition for the baby into this life. Most of the expectant moms we meet want to have a natural and safe birth avoiding procedures like Epidurals Pitocin and caesarean sections. When baby is not in the proper position for birth it is all but guaranteed to result in a caesarean section. Dr. Childs and Dr. Marshall are both Webster Certified. The Webster Technique is designed to relax the mothers pelvis muscles and ligaments providing the best environment for normal baby positioning. This technique reduces interference to the nerve system and balances maternal pelvic muscles and ligaments reducing torsion in the uterus that allows for optimal fetal positioning.
