Prenatal and Pediatric Care

More and more parents are seeking advice on nutrition and pediatric chiropractic care for their children, even as early as during pregnancy. Our doctors are certified in the Webster Technique and are experts in Charlotte pediatric and prenatal nutrition.

How Prenatal Nutrition and Pediatric Care Can Help

Health issues can begin as early as birth as the birthing process can cause stress to an infant’s spine and developing nervous system. A slight misalignment of the vertebrae, or subluxation, can cause breathing issues, colic, nursing difficulties, sleep disturbances and even allergic reactions.

Pediatric chiropractic care can help children overcome subtle traumas from falls, bumps and odd sleeping positions.  Our prenatal nutrition and pediatric adjustment recommendations are modified to fit your child’s size, weight and health conditions including ear infections, allergies, lack of concentration, and headaches.

Techniques

Gonstead Technique

Based on the philosophy that the spine is the foundation of the body, the Gonstead technique focuses on recognizing when the upper and lower portions of the spine are out of alignment. These misalignments are then corrected using a variety of chiropractic methods.

Diversified Technique

In this technique, biochemical failures are addressed in order to fix any areas of the spine that are found to be out of alignment. Injuries incurred while playing sports and in other methods are addressed using manual palpations and types of hands-on techniques.

Activator Technique

This is one of the most common methods of addressing back, neck and other types of pain. A spring-loaded mechanical device called an Activator Adjusting Instrument is held in the hand to deliver impulses that are both quick and low in force to particular points on the body.

Thompson Technique

Using a Thompson Drop Table that utilizes specialized drop segments and pneumatic drivers, our staff is able to easily adjust your spine.

Sacro Occipital Technic (SOT) Method

This method goes beyond simply correcting the alignment of the spine and uses manipulation to improve the body's function.

Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression is designed to alleviate negative pressure within the spine to allow bulging or herniated discs to reposition themselves naturally.

Arthrostim

We use this technologically advanced tool to deliver pulses to your spine so that it can be properly adjusted. Since it can deliver these pulses 12 times each second while targeting a specific area, it is highly effective.

Upper Cervical Care

The top two bones in the neck are called the upper cervical spine. By paying special attention to this area, we can improve communications from the brain to the rest of the body.

Soft Touch Treatment

Focusing on pressure points along the spine, soft touch treatment seeks to relax the muscles to allow your spine to adjust naturally.

Whole Body Vibration

This method is used to stimulate the fibers of your muscles. Using short bursts, whole body vibration (WBV) sends the brain reflexive signals and causes your muscles to contract, increasing their strength and mobility.

Blood and Urine Testing

We often recommend blood and urine testing to help guide us in the correct care and treatment plan for your needs.

Customized Nutrition Counseling & Plans

This method goes beyond simply correcting the alignment of the spine and uses manipulation to improve the body's function.

True Body Detoxification

In an effort to support our patients, we offer true body detoxification. It's designed to safely and effectively remove toxins from your body.

Hormone-based Exercise Coach

Our staff tailors their recommendations to your own particular needs based on your hormones and other factors.
