The goal of Chiropractic Care is to alleviate symptoms, restore proper biomechanics of the spine, and strengthen and coordinate the supporting muscles of the spine by correcting vertebral subluxations and ultimately relieving stress on the nervous system. Chiropractic care works wonders for a wide variety of aliments including, but not limited to, low back pain, headaches, shoulder pain, and sciatica.

Chiropractic care is extremely important before, during, and after pregnancy. Due to preexisting conditions, rapid growth of your baby, and a continuously changing posture, many women experience pain and discomfort during pregnancy. Chiropractic care is a safe and effective way to relieve and even prevent common discomforts experienced during pregnancy without the use of dangerous drugs. Not only is chiropractic care good for the mother, it also provides the baby with additional comfort by allowing extra room in the pelvic bowl and reducing stress, torsion, and constraint of the uterus. A constrained uterus limits the space of the growing and developing baby and will affect his or her optimal development. Cramped conditions may also prevent the baby from being able to turn head down in preparation for delivery and can cause the newborn to have conditions such as torticollis. Dr Alorna will work specifically with your pelvis and spine throughout pregnancy to restore a state of balance which allows for an easier and safer pregnancy and delivery.
More and more parents are seeking chiropractic care for the benefits it provides their children. Spinal problems seen in adults often begin as early as birth since even natural birthing methods can cause great stress on the infant’s spine and developing nervous system. These irritations to the nervous system by spinal and cranial misalignments are often the cause of many newborn health complaints. Regular chiropractic checkups and care for children help avoid many health complaints as an adult. Just like dentistry, proper spinal hygiene is the key to better health and well being.
Along with chiropractic care the doctors might use forms of physiotherapy in the early stages of your injury. These include therapeutic ultrasound, electric muscle stimulation, and traction. These modalities aid in the healing process by reducing swelling, breaking up painful calcium deposits, and providing quality pain relief.
