What is Chiropractic wellness?
First knowing what health means is important to understanding how chiropractic wellness care can help you and your family. Many think of health as “feeling good” or “not being in pain”, however, in Chiropractic care we think of Health as someone functioning at their full potential. When your body is functioning at 100%, your body has the ability to adapt to stressors that occur in your environment on an every day basis.
When your body is not functioning to its fullest potential you feel unwell and this is where we see patients with things like: asthma/allergies/ear infections, etc. While there are some physical stressors/traumas that are out of your control like a sudden car accident, your body’s ability to function and adapt to your environment is something that you do have complete control over: you have the choice to be healthy or unhealthy.
Chiropractors understand this, and it’s why the focus is on the whole body, rather than just your aches and pains (physical symptoms). When we focus on the whole body functioning to its fullest potential, these “aches and pains” tend to get better as a secondary effect. The body has an innate ability to heal itself and sometimes just needs a little push in the right direction to reach its optimum potential. At First Step Chiropractic and Wellness we help guide you and your family into healthy lifestyles that will help keep you feeling well and achieve health.
Can I be adjusted while pregnant?
Of Course! Not only does Chiropractic care allow for mom to feel her best throughout her pregnancy but by Chiropractic care helps to keep the nervous system working to its fullest, relieving stress, improving pelvic alignment and decreasing any tightness or discomfort in the pelvic muscles/ligaments. This all can help to prepare a mother for her best and most comfortable labor.
Dr. Melissa is certified in Webster Technique, a specialized Chiropractic Technique, that is designed for specifically adjusting pregnant mothers.
