- Chiropractic and Breastfeeding!
To breastfeed, babies need to coordinate the use of their skull bones, along with voluntary and involuntary muscles controlled by cranial nerves. All these steps are necessary for them to learn to suck, swallow and breathe to get the milk. Common issues in babies having challenges breastfeeding include spinal misalignments and tension along the upper neck, jaw, and skull. By correcting these, newborns can turn their neck better, making it easier and more comfortable to latch on both sides. How babies are delivered impacts breastfeeding. Babies born by C-section do not have the molding and compression of the birth canal, so their bodies tend to have more muscle tension and suffer from the effects of anesthesia. Complications might also arise with babies who are born too fast, too slow (two or more hours pushing) or by excessive force. Chiropractic care can restore alignment and release soft tissue tension in the jaw and skull for deeper, stronger suction. Positive changes can be seen just after a few visits when symptoms are identified early on. When the baby latches correctly, milk is released more easily, reducing the risk of mastitis or blockages. The correct latch also gives your body the signal it needs to produce more milk and maintain a good supply. If necessary, you can use acupuncture to increase milk supply or manage symptoms of mastitis. Breastfeeding gives your baby the best start in life, and whatever milestone you reach, you must celebrate it. If you are experiencing challenges breastfeeding contact these local resources: - La Leche League of the Omaha Area - MilkWorks O - Nurture Omaha, LLC - The Lactation Ladies We are here to support moms and ensure they feel and function at their best!
- Kids Sports and Chiropractic
If you have an active kid at home, you probably have witnessed a variety of sports injuries. Young athletes can suffer issues from repetitive use and the overwhelming demands they put on their developing bodies. A mild ache can change the way your child moves, forcing them to over-compensate with other muscles. Chiropractors can identify the signs of a traumatic injury and support your child in a successful recovery. Regular care improves balance, flexibility, and range of motion. Adjustments release endorphins and regulate proprioception. They can also enhance athletic reaction time by boosting nervous system function. Our goal is to identify the root cause of your child’s condition and lower the recurrence of injuries by restoring the natural processes needed for healing. We are here to support kids and ensure they feel and function at their best!

- Stress and immune function
Stress-related back pain is one of the most common symptoms we encounter at our office because many people carry stress on their shoulders, neck, or back. High stress levels affect your immune response, leaving you more vulnerable to infection and disease. Your central nervous system communicates with the rest of your body through the nerves. When your spine is misaligned, it causes interference in that path of communication. Your immune system may suffer from this interference, weakening your body’s mechanisms for fighting off illness. Chiropractic care can strengthen your body’s natural ability to heal and recover. It corrects spinal misalignments improving nerve function and boosting your immune system. We can combine it with acupuncture for optimal results. We are here to support you during the fall season, and ensure you feel and function at your best!

- Omaha Chiropractic for moms
Some days might look like this. Trying to balance work, family, and home. For all those busy mammas out there, we are here to help you take care of yourself and your loved ones. Chiropractic can provide a sense of wellbeing and have a positive impact during the different stages of motherhood. You can experience benefits like: - Reduced back pain: by restoring proper alignment, we can decrease muscle strain and improve flexibility, resulting in less back and neck pain. - Experience less headaches and migraines: by applying pressure to the joints in the neck, face, or skull we can release the compression affecting facial and cranial nerves. - Improved balance: changes in posture can cause balance issues. They lead to degeneration of the spinal discs and unhealthy curvatures. Chiropractic restores mobility and prevents deviations from getting worse. When you can move freely and engage the muscles supporting your spine, it reduces your risk for balance problems. - Improved breastfeeding: adjustments can help induce milk production by restoring nerve and hormone function. They can also relieve the pain and tension moms experience on their upper back from nursing their babies. - Less menstrual symptoms: misalignments in the lower spine and pelvis can impair nerve signaling to reproductive organs. The pelvis supports and protects the lower abdominal organs, including the uterus. When it’s tilted, it puts additional strain on the back and abdomen. Chiropractic can correct this issue, reducing pain and cramping without the use of medication. - Faster postpartum recovery: chiropractic restores the body’s biomechanics impacted by delivery and pregnancy. Realigning and balancing the pelvis ensures a faster healing process. Being a mom is a wonderful ride, we are here to support you and ensure you feel and function at your best!
