  • What is a family chiropractor?

    What is a family chiropractor? A family chiropractor should know how to adjust everyone in your tribe from your newborn, to the busy and pregnant momma, to the toddler that is learning to walk, to the heavy-backpack-wearing student, to the hard-working dad, the teens with poor posture, and the active elementary kiddos. There are so many chiropractors in the Omaha area that it can be hard to know which one to choose for yourself and your family.

  • How to See Your Chiropractor Less Often :) aka Holding Your Adjustment Longer

    There are many ways that we unknowingly put more physical strain on our body and make it work harder. It might be the way we sit, stand, or work. It could be how we lift our kids or pets. It could even be how we sleep. There are ways we can be careful about what we are doing so that our bodies don’t need to see a chiropractor as often and can hold an adjustment longer. One of the most significant ways we spend our time is sitting. When sitting in a chair or in a vehicle, we should support the natural forward curvature of the lumbar spine. This can be as simple as placing a small pillow or rolled up towel or blanket in the small of your back. You should still be able to relax back in your chair without losing your good posture. When working at a computer, the screen should be at eye level, the keyboard should be in a position that allows the shoulders to be relaxed in a neutral position, and your feet should be able to be flat on the floor or on a small step stool. If spending time on a phone or tablet, try to prop a pillow or blanket under your arms so your neck is not bent forward to view the screen. When sleeping, on your back is the most neutral position for the spine. If sleeping on your side is more comfortable, a long pillow should be placed in between the knees that reaches down to the ankles. When standing, there is a space between your knees. This space should be supported during rest as to not stress the hips, pelvis, and lower back. Stomach sleeping is the least ideal sleeping position. If this is the only way you can sleep, a very flat pillow or no pillow at all should be utilized. There is not one perfect position that your body should be in all day. When tasked with being in the same place for a long period of time, try to take frequent breaks to stand up and move around or sit down for a moment to relax. Remember that supported neutral (or as close to it) as possible is typically best for your body. As with any advice you receive, make sure your body responds well to what is being suggested. If you have any discomfort or pain, stop immediately and consult your primary care physician. These habits are going to be much more effective if you are well aligned.

  • 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!
