Chiropractic Care for Pregnancy
We use a variety of gentle techniques to help women enjoy an active, healthy pregnancy.
Your nervous system – the brain and spinal cord – controls everything within your body: every cell, organ, muscle and tissue. The spine houses the spinal cord, protecting its nerves as they bring information from all over the body.
Any interference within this system, such as the vertebra not moving correctly, can mean the system does not work efficiently, which can in turn cause pain or restriction within the body, or could simply mean that the body is unable to heal itself as well as it should. That’s why we always say that Chiropractors don’t work on your spine because it’s a spine but because it is the house for this very important system which is responsible for allowing your body to heal itself.
A chiropractor’s job is to assess how well your nerve system is working. At Radcliffe Chiropractic, we have a series of simple tests which demonstrate how well your nervous system is working, particularly how well the body and brain are communicating. Chiropractic focuses on the spine and restores nerve system communication. We do this by removing interference within the nervous system through specific spinal adjustments.
Rather than focusing on pain, we look at how adjustments and lifestyle changes can help you gain control over your health and well-being to increase your overall quality of life. We also measure other factors such as heart rate, oxygen, blood pressure, stress levels and sleep to give us a wider picture of your health and help us determine how best to help you.
Our tests can determine and analyse function, enabling us to help your body perform at optimum levels of wellness. We also use x-rays of your spine where indicated to allow us to form a more accurate diagnosis and adjustment schedule.
