Pediatrics & Pregnancy
Throughout pregnancy your baby needs a proper supply line from mom and it is critical that there are no impairments during the critical development process in utero. Maternity chiropractic care is a natural, safe and effective way to enrich the growth of your baby while providing comfort to mom from the aches and pains of pregnancy. Dr. Rody is Webster certified and utilizes techniques that can help promote your baby's positioning in a non-invasive way. Schedule your maternity consultation to help your baby's development and ease your pregnancy discomforts.
The birthing process can be extremely traumatic to your infant. From pulling on the baby's neck to the use of forceps and other medical tools, your baby has already had his or her first spinal misalignment. If left untreated this can create symptoms that lead to sickness. This is why it's critical to have your infant checked soon after birth to remove spinal impingements that can impair your baby's health.
Children suffer from ear infections more today than ever and many traditional treatments have been ineffective for those with reoccurring ear infections. Kids are more susceptible to ear infections because their Eustachian tube are more horizontal than adults. This causes fluid to pool and drain less which leads to infection. Antibiotics are the traditional route of treatment but has been shown not as effective especially when the ear infection is viral and not bacterial. A natural and effective treatment for pediatric ear infections is aligning the upper neck bones. When there is a misalignment this can place pressure on the tubes draining the ears. Chiropractors work with the spine and by gentle and safe adjustments remove the interference to promote healing.
I’ve been going to Dr. Rody since about week 14 of my pregnancy and she has helped me tremendously. I have always had pretty awful migraines and without the help of the medication I usually relied on I was seeking other alternatives. I am so glad I found Dr. Rody. I haven’t had a single migraine since I have been in her care. She has also helped me with just the general back and neck aches of pregnancy! I highly recommend her to anyone who is thinking of chiropractic care.
