During Pregnancy

There are so many changes that occur during pregnancy that can compromise how Mom feels and could impact growth and development in utero.

These include:

  • Modified posture through the shoulders offsets the center of gravity and could cause loss of cervical (neck) curve leading to neck pain tension and headaches.

  • Increased breast size in preparation for lactation adds additional strain to the mid and upper joints. This decreases stability of the joints and can aggravate any existing issues and amplify pelvic imbalances.

  • A growing belly exerts a forward and downward pull on the low back.

  • A modified gait becomes more wide creating a variation in skeletal joints and in muscle mobility. This could aggravate the pelvic joints, sciatic nerves and the supporting uterine ligaments.

Considering all of these pregnancy changes chiropractic adjustments can promote a healthier pregnancy, easier delivery and a safe transition for baby into this world. Dr. Carlton is trained and experienced in evaluating and adjusting throughout the entirety of a patient’s pregnancy. It is always so exciting for Dr. Carlton to adjust moms during pregnancy and then meet and adjust the precious new-born.


For Infants

“It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken adults. It is never too early. A small adjustment now can make a world of difference in a child’s life.”

Ensure your growing child’s nervous system is free from interference and stress! Yes— infants and children have spinal subluxations too! Removing subluxations will enhance nerve pathway development, optimize their potential for health and increase their body’s ability to adapt to various forms of stress. This allows greater health outcomes naturally. Have Dr. Carlton check and adjust your child today for healthier tomorrows.

Before the end of a child's second year of life, their neural development is at its highest.

The plasticity of a child's nervous system remains highly influenceable until age 16 whereby early experiences have enormous impact on lifelong health, behavior and learning.

Ensuring a nervous system is free from interference during early years enhances

development and optimizes health and the body’s ability to adapt to stress.

Dr. Carlton is trained and experienced in detecting areas of the child’s spine that could be interfering with their health and well being.
