Benefits of Pregnancy Chiropractic

Our prenatal care is gentle and safe and helps to improve pregnancy in many ways. Here are some additional well-known benefits:

  • Better sleep
  • Decreased swelling in the feet
  • Elimination of back pain and sciatica
  • Increased energy
  • Less digestive issues
  • Reductions in reflux and morning sickness

What is the Webster Technique?

Dr. Adam Dinkel is also certified in the Webster Technique. From the ICPA Website, here is more information about the Webster Technique:

“Chiropractic care in pregnancy is vital to the normal physiological function of both the mother and baby throughout pregnancy and birth. More women and birth providers are discovering the many benefits associated with chiropractic care in pregnancy and recognize this area of expertise through Webster Certification.

The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic sacral analysis and diversified adjustment. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of sacral subluxation/SI joint dysfunction. In doing so, neuro-biomechanical function in the pelvis is facilitated.

Sacral subluxation may contribute to difficult labor for the mother (i.e., dystocia), caused by inadequate uterine function, pelvic contraction, and baby mal-presentation. Correction of sacral subluxation may have a positive effect on all of these causes of dystocia.” Click Here for more information on the Webster Technique.

Benefits of Pediatric Chiropractic

Pediatric chiropractic is one of the greatest gifts that a parent can bestow upon a child. We treat kids from the time they’re out of the womb until the later teenage years. Children under chiropractic care thrive, including those with special needs, such as Down syndrome, as well as spina bifida and autism spectrum disorders.

The adjustment style we use on children is gentle and comfortable. X-rays are generally not necessary. The pressure used during treatment is light. For babies, the force would be similar to the pressure used to check the ripeness of a tomato. Here are some of the conditions that respond well to chiropractic care:

  • Allergies
  • Asthma
  • Bed-wetting
  • Colic
  • Constipation
  • Feeding issues
  • Growing pains
  • Sleep issues
  • Sports injuries

Our entire family absolutely loves Dr. Dinkel!!!!! Our 18 month old has had issues with his bowels since birth – until we went to Dr. Dinkel. Now, he is regular and a lot happier. My 6 and 4 year old never want to miss their adjustments and I have been sleeping a lot better since seeing Dr. Dinkel twice a week. We love Dinkel Chiropractic!!!!!!”

An Inspiring Chiropractic Story

One of our patients brought in her 10-month old daughter, who had been diagnosed with Down syndrome. This baby had rarely had a bowel movement on her own. Her mom had to give her a suppository each week just to make sure that she could have a weekly elimination.

Pediatric Chiropractor Dr. Dinkel evaluated the child and began a series of gentle adjustments. After one week, this little girl had her first bowel movement. Her digestive function has been restored, and she no longer must rely on her mom’s help.
