7 Reasons Why Pregnant Women Choose Structural Chiropractic

Navigating through pregnancy, especially as a first time mom, can seem like a daunting process. 

After all...you do have a baby growing inside you!

In the 1970s, the average age women had their first child was around 24. Today, that has jumped to 28 years old. 

There are a lot of reasons for this shift, and one likely explanation is for moms-to-be to learn more about the journey of pregnancy beforehand to allow for the best possible experience. Plus, with ever-rising prices, gaining financial stability also takes longer than it did 50 years ago!

With that being said, more mothers than ever are seeking natural solutions to the discomforts of pregnancy and all the other radical physiological changes that happen during the process.  

Here are 7 major reasons pregnant women seek structural chiropractic:

Fit the Patient to the Procedure? Or Fit the Procedure to the Patient?

Doctor: “Sally, do you think your spine is the same as the next person I’m going to take care of?”

Patient: “Well, no, not at all doctor.”

Doctor: “Do you think we should try to fit you to one table that someone else responds well to, or should we fit the right table to your body to make the best correction?”

Patient: “Well I would prefer you use the right table for my spine!”

I had this conversation with a patient recently and I couldn’t have agreed with her more! Too often in health care, people are confronted with being looked at as a “square peg” with the doctor trying to fit them in a “round hole.”  

Are you looking for a different approach to your spine?  Are you looking for a different approach for your health?  Are you looking to turn off your symptoms?  Are you wanting to know the cause?  Are you seeking maximize your health potential and experience your highest quality of life?  These are all questions you must ask yourself at some point in your health journey.

The Number One Barrier Preventing You From Reaching Health Restoration

“Take two ibuprofen every 4-6 hours and apply heat and that should take care of it.” Does this sound familiar at all? Yeah, I thought so.

If you’re like most Americans, you’ve likely been told something along these lines as you went in to see your general physician at some point in your life.  Usually followed by you saying to yourself, “thank goodness my doctor knows what to do to fix this,” and, “thankfully it isn’t anything worse.”  
This thought is exactly what is keeping you from reaching your true health potential.  We have been indoctrinated in the idea that health comes from outside the body, and that it is the doctor’s job to restore your health.  This is where doctors, all doctors, have failed their patients.  The number one thing preventing you from restoring your health is not taking responsibility for your own health in the first place.

To be a real doctor, of any health discipline, is to teach you how to be responsible for your own welfare within their own discipline.  When you become actively engaged in health promoting habits and doing things at home on a daily basis, you will be liberated from the suffocation of relying on a doctor to “give you” your health back.

At Intero Chiropractic, we recognize that your body is intelligent and is always striving for health.  We cannot possibly improve on the perfection that is the wisdom that created your body from just two cells.  That wisdom is, however, limited by the materials it has to work with (your structure), as your body is constantly being bombarded by chemical, physical and emotional stressors.  Our goal is to provide a practical solution where we can reach your health goals together which consists of you doing certain things on a daily basis so that you can be the true champion or your health.

One major factor associated with ALL-CAUSE mortality and what to do to assess it

I want you to picture in your mind, just for a second, the physical framework of someone you’ve seen recently that is anxious or even depressed

Almost everyone agrees that this person they are picturing is typically hunched very far forward and their posture has shifted significantly from what would be considered normal.

It has been found through research that abnormal posture is associated with poor physical function, impaired pulmonary function, pain and disability and increased mortality.Watch the short video above, to learn how the doctors at Intero Chiropractic take each patient’s care to the next level but visually evaluating your structure each time you come into the office and things you can be looking for in your friends and loved ones to help them be more proactive in their health.

10 Benefits of Having Chiropractic Treatments

Chiropractors have been practicing for more than a century, and in that time, millions of people have enjoyed the numerous benefits of chiropractic treatments. In this article, Intero Chiropractic will explore the many benefits that you can get with the proper treatment at our chiropractor. Let’s get started.

Lower Back Pain Relief
Lower back pain is extremely common in Americans. It’s been estimated that around 80% of Americans will deal with at least one episode of lower back pain in their life time – and around 10% of Americans suffer from some type of chronic back pain.By realigning the spine and joints, chiropractors can provide pain relief for the lower back, and ensure you can live your life normally.

Headache Relief
Misalignments in the spine can actually cause severe headaches. Spinal manipulation of the joints in the neck can help correct this issue. By realigning the spinal cord and spinal column, our Pleasanton chiropractor can help you eliminate headaches.

Relief From Arthritis And Joint Pain
Chiropractors treat the misalignment of joints. If your joints are misaligned, you may experience severe joint pain, so seeking treatment from a chiropractor provides a solution to this. Even patients with arthritis can benefit from re-aligned joints, which lessen symptoms like inflammation and stiffness.

Surgery Prevention

Often, traditional treatments of issues like back pain involve invasive surgeries, undertaken directly on the delicate and vulnerable spinal column. Chiropractic treatments are non-invasive, and can still offer pain relief – allowing you to avoid going “under the knife”.

Improved Digestion And Regularity

Your spine affects your stomach. When your joints are misaligned, acid production increases – resulting in digestion issues, and other symptoms like gastric reflux or gas. Re-aligning the spinal column relieves this stress, and improves digestion.

Better Posture

Poor posture is a major cause of issues like neck and back pain. When you have bad posture, your joints are more likely to come out of alignment. But once your joints are misaligned, it can be difficult, or even impossible, to maintain proper posture without pain.

Chiropractic treatments can break this vicious cycle. Once you have your spine corrected by a chiropractor, it’s much easier to maintain a better posture – and this reduces your need for future alignments! That’s a win-win.

More Restful Sleep

More than 38% of Americans self-report having a difficult time going to sleep, due to issues like stress, bodily pain, and a variety of other factors. Chiropractic care can help with these common sleep issues by relieving pain and stress – allowing for a deeper, more restful night of sleep.

Easier Breathing

A misalignment in the spine can actually affect the lungs, and push them slightly out of position. It can also cause inflammation in the lungs, potentially leading to conditions like asthma. Chiropractic care can solve these problems, making it easier to breathe.

Stress Relief

Stress is, unfortunately, very common among adult Americans. But chiropractic care from Intero Chiropractic can help you manage your stress in a healthy way. Muscle tension is extremely common in overstressed individuals. This leads to further pain and stress. But with the right chiropractor, you can correct your joints – and mitigate your stress levels.

Drug-Free Pain Management

Often, prescription drugs like oxycodone are used to treat back pain. But these drugs have significant side effects. They can be dangerous, and are extremely addictive. Chiropractic services allow you to mitigate your joint pain without turning to these dangerous substances.
