Chiro for Kids and Pregnancy in Schaumburg
The benefits of chiropractic care in Schaumburg extend further than you may think! It's not only great for adults but children and infants, as well. Have you considered chiropractic for your kids? At Access Chiropractic Center we firmly believe in protecting a child’s body by making sure they have the best possible functioning nervous system.
Starting from the time a child is conceived, their bodies are growing and being put under stress. While the child is growing, they are usually curled up in a ball, and then they are pushed and/or pulled during birth. I just ask that you just take a second and think about how you would feel if today you underwent that kind of experience. All of this stress and trauma affects our spine which can lead to issues with the nervous system. This is a problem because the nervous system is what controls everything our body does such as blinking, breathing, heartbeat, the ability to fight illness, walk, talk, think, speak, etc. It is well known that children bounce back quickly, but that is related to how they feel; physically and structurally that is not always the case. Unfortunately, children do not always verbalize exactly what they feel when they are sore, uncomfortable, or in pain, but just like with adults, if the underlying cause is left alone for too long it will grow into a bigger problem. Chiropractic care for children can be very beneficial.

Chiropractic care can be helpful for your child's development. After development and birth, the physical stress and trauma continue when children grow into toddlers. They are faced with the developmental challenge of crawling and walking. While children are learning to overcome these challenges, there is a significant about of straining, twisting, and falling. While growth continues and the child starts to be at the age where they play with pets, friends, family, etc. they can again endure more physical stress and trauma.
Generally, children in the preschool-middle school age play hard and try to play without limits. As toddlers grow into kids, they often start to develop bad posture, start playing contact sports, wearing heavier backpacks (most likely the wrong way), and deal with the stress of more daily responsibilities. As these kids start to become teenagers and high school graduates, they often become part of the workforce. Usually, they are jobs that require a lot of moving around and physical labor such as servers, factory workers, etc.
At Access Chiropractic Center, we make a point to make sure that all the falls, stress, trauma, and physical demands that your children endure do not stop them from being kids.

Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy
Have you considered chiropractic care for pregnancy in Schaumburg? It's common for women to complain of a lot of lower back pain while pregnant. The physical stress of pregnancy can lead to a great deal of discomfort.
During pregnancy, a women’s body is undergoing a number of different changes to accommodate the growing baby. Due to the weight that is gained, a mother’s center gravity changes. It shifts to the front of her pelvis and this is not a natural position. It can result in added stress and discomfort in the lower back and various joints in the pelvis. Throughout the pregnancy, as the baby grows, the mother gains more weight and the back becomes more stressed, This causes the lordotic curvature in her low back to increase. If there has been a history of lower back problems, there is a good chance that the pregnancy will aggravate the condition. This may lead to difficultly performing daily routines and create difficulties in labor.
According to the American Pregnancy Association, 50-70% of pregnant women experience lower back pain at some point. The back pain generally peaks around the third trimester because this is when the baby gains the most weight. There are many more problems that the stress on the lower back can create such as leg cramps, abdominal cramping, constipation, and much more.
