Many people do not realize that choosing Chiropractic for expectant mothers and children of all ages (newborn to adolescents) is both safe and recommended for a variety of conditions.
Prenatal Chiropractic Care is important throughout all stages of pregnancy. Chiropractic adjustments help promote optimal function of the nervous system--this will aid in conception and fetal development. There is a growing number of research studies to support use of Chiropractic Care to aid in managing common pregnancy related issues, like back pain, headaches, muscle aches, morning sickness, etc. This supports a healthier, easier birthing and labor process.
Pediatric Chiropractic Care is rapidly becoming more widespread and accepted. Children and adolescents deal with a variety of stressors in today's world--Physical (birth trauma, falls/accidents, athletic demands), Chemical (pollutants, food additives), Emotional (fear/anxiety, peer pressure). Chiropractic Care helps their tender, yet resilient, bodies and nervous systems respond to those stressors. A large body of research supports Pediatric Chiropractic Care for children dealing with conditions like Colic, Asthma, Ear Infections, Bed Wetting, ADHD, Headaches, Dysmmenorhea, and many more. Starting Chiropractic Care with young people helps nurture the idea of wellness care and personal responsibility for health and well-being in the child/adolescents mind.

We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each our patient is a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient´s return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? Dr. Crystal Green can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
