At Stamford Family Chiropractic Center, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic and wellness care to our patients. We are excited to offer several services under one roof to foster radiant health and a balanced healthy body.
Chiropractic and Cranial Correction - Caring for your body's structure
Gentle chiropractic adjustments work with your body to re-balance the spine and nervous system.
When joints in and around the cranium, spine and pelvis become restricted or mal-positioned (subluxated), the degenerative process is initiated and neurological function may be affected.
One can prevent or limit degeneration and arthritic changes if they maintain good joint health. Joint imbalances and restrictions come from many sources, often by way of falls, impact sports, poor posture, excessive tension, computer jobs, poor mattress and carrying babies or toddlers one-sided and even the birth process itself.
Whether infant, young or senior, your spine and body joints are important to get checked and balanced on a regular basis to ensure proper development and long term function.
Pediatric Chiropractic and Craniosacral Balancing
Labor, delivery and toddler-hood can all present challenges that may affect your child's growing and developing frame and nervous system. We recommend a full cranial assessment on on any child with history of a difficult birth, use of forceps, any visible skull flattening, shape abnormality or hematoma.
Studies show that not correcting non-synostotic Plagiocephaly (non-fused skull shape abnormalities) has been linked to developmental issues http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/105/2/e26.full.pdf+html
Warning signs for infant imbalances include: Baby always keeps head turned to one side, irritability, digestive issues, difficulty latching, painful breastfeeding, failure to thrive, skull abnormalities& visibly large tongue.
Craniosacral balancing techniques are used to gently restore balance to the infant/pediatric skull and body.
All children may be at risk for spinal imbalances from falling, sports injuries, poor posture and heavy book bags. It's never too early to get your baby, child or teen checked!
The best time to deal with an issue is before it becomes one.
