Services & Specialties
Chiropractic care has consistently proven to be an effective treatment for low back pain. Studies show that it is safer and more cost-effective than pain medications or surgery. Other conditions that may improve with chiropractic care include headaches, neck and upper back pain, hip pain, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, shoulder pain, earaches, vertigo, knee pain, elbow pain, and ankle and foot dysfunction. Though traditionally associated with caring for the back and neck, chiropractors are trained to evaluate and treat any and all joints in the body.
The birth process, even when non-traumatic or not involving interventions, places stress on the baby’s neck (cervical spine) and cranial bones. Several studies have shown that about 90% of babies suffer from the effects of birth trauma to the cervical spine and cranium. These stresses create abnormal motion or misalignments in the spine which cause problems with the nervous system. If the nervous system is not functioning optimally, the baby’s spinal growth and neurological development can be impacted.
Here are some signs that your baby may be dealing with spinal stress or neural dysfunction:
-Colic or Irritability or Fussiness
-Dislike of tummy time
-Torticollis or tilting head to one side
-Difficulty Breastfeeding or Latching
-Tongue or lip ties
-Delayed Developmental Milestones (holding up head, rolling over, sitting upright, crawling)
-Abnormal head shape
Dr. Timmie is trained and certified in the Webster prenatal Technique to analyze the alignment and movement of your pelvis and sacrum and make specific corrections to restore normal motion to these joints.
Difficult labor is caused by inadequate uterine function, pelvic imbalances, and baby malpresentation. Sacral adjustments may affect the function of the uterus, improve pelvic balance and reduce tension to pelvic muscles and ligaments allowing baby to assume the best possible position.
