What About Pregnant Moms and Children?
Neurostructural shifts are very common in pregnant moms. As we all know, pregnancy results in huge changes in your body, especially in hormones that cause shifts in your body to allow room for the baby to grow. Not only is neurostructural care great for keeping Mom comfortable and as pain-free as possible during pregnancy,
Dr. Martin is certified in the Webster Technique, which is a specific adjustment designed for pregnancy. It is focused on correcting the biomechanics of the sacrum, pelvis, and soft tissues surrounding the low back and hips to allow for a more comfortable, healthy pregnancy.
The birth process is very traumatic for newborns. Whether born 100% naturally or by c-section, the infant undergoes an extraordinary amount of mechanical stress during delivery, including twisting and pulling on their delicate spine. This stress can cause misalignments and shifts in the baby’s spine, which may cause dysfunction in the infant's developing nervous system. Once we determine whether nervous system dysfunction is present and design a plan of correction, we allow the nervous system to function optimally and the body is better able to heal and thrive.
Dr. Martin is trained in gentle, specific adjustments designed for pregnancy, newborns, infants, and children. Since the first years of life are so crucial to development, doesn't it make sense to check the foundation of the body (the spine) for any Neurostructural shifts to ensure proper and optimal development?
