As a chiropractor who cares about utilizing the most advanced chiropractic techniques, Dr. Rhae has years of training, expertise and experience in helping patients get pain relief for back pain, neck pain, headaches, and sports related injuries. Chiropractic care under a trained professional can even be used to prevent injuries and help you achieve total health or wellness.
Adjustments have many benefits including reducing muscle spasms, enhancing immune system function, increasing nutrient flow around the brain and spinal cord, and reduced stiffness and pain.
Many patients come in to receive chiropractic care for increased health and wellness.
They are not currently experiencing pain but come in for regular adjustments to promote proper nervous system function. When there are subluxations or restrictions in the spine, the nerves exiting the spine at that level are affected and their function is altered. When an adjustment is performed, the nerves at that level are then able to function appropriately allowing the organ controlled by those nerves to function at their best.
Gentle chiropractic care with Webster Technique during pregnancy is safe and important as your body goes through many changes while the baby grows. Dr. Rhae became certified in Webster Technique in 2015 and chiropractors holding certification in Webster Technique are trained to work specifically with pelvic alignment in pregnancy, allowing you & your baby to be more comfortable. Sciatica, mid or low back pain, groin pain, and pubic symphysis pain are all problems that chiropractic care can help lessen or alleviate during pregnancy. Maintaining proper pelvic alignment through Webster technique also helps to keep proper nervous system function for when the body is ready to go in to labor and also helps to widen the pelvic inlet where baby needs to pass during delivery.
Dr. Rhae's goal for the new mother is to help her through the process of postpartum healing. Many mothers experience pain in the lower back, hips and pubic bone area following labor and delivery. Specific chiropractic adjustments may help to decrease those symptoms. Some woman may also experience diastasis recti or a split in the rectus abdominus muscle. Dr. Rhae is trained in specific rehabilitative exercises through her BirthFIT certification to help the diastasis recti heal and enhance the mother's overall core strength.
Neck pain, upper back pain and headaches are also common symptoms which can stem from postures associated with the many tasks of motherhood including breastfeeding, holding a child, carrying a car seat, etc. Chiropractic adjustments can be great in helping to alleviate these symptoms.
Pediatric Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic care is very LOW FORCE and gentle for the pediatric patient in order to correct spinal misalignment and restore proper nervous system function at an early age before it possibly becomes a life long, chronic problem.
Infant Stage: Care for the pediatric patient is so important. From the time that they are in the womb and through the delivery process, the infant's spine is introduced to a wide variety of powerful forces and stressors that can affect how their spine is aligned and how their nervous system is functioning. When there is an affect on the nervous system, changing how it functions, symptoms can arise. Common symptoms seen can be colic, abnormal sleeping patterns, irregular bowel movements or straining with bowel movements, acid reflux, or difficulty latching.
Toddler Stage: During the toddler phase, with learning to become upright and walk, a child's spine can be impacted by another variety of stressors including suffering bumps and falls along the way. All which impact the spine and nervous system.
From beyond the Toddler years: Many children are exposed to experiences that can negatively impact their spine. These can include sports injuries, carrying heavy backpacks, and slouching over phones, computers, and video games. All of these can lead to symptoms if not addressed and possibly chronic problems later in life.
