"Eliminating spinal misalignments, which are the source of nerve interference, enhances the function of the nervous system and provides greater health potential for both mother and child."
Meet Alaska's Only DICCP Certified Chiropractor
Doctor Jessica Dachowski, DC, DICCP - Diplomate In Clinical Chiropractic Pediatrics
Chiropractic intervention is an essential component in prenatal care. A pregnant woman's body is changing rapidly from one day to the next, distorting her posture out of alignment. Over time, these minor spinal misalignments exert excessive - and sometimes dangerous - pressure on the delicate nerves flowing out of her spinal cord and into her vital organs, leading to a condition known as nerve interference. Nerve interference can lead to a wide range of health conditions, including organ dysfunction, pain, discomfort, and fatigue.
Eliminating spinal misalignments and the source of nerve interference therefore, enhances the function of the nervous system, and provides greater health potential for both mom and baby.
Pelvic misalignments reduce the amount of room necessary for the developing baby to be comfortable in, and may prohibit the baby's ability to maneuver into the natural birthing position, which leads to increased stress of labor and delivery on mother and child.
As a Webster Technique certified chiropractor - and the only Certified Pediatric Diplomate in the state - Dr. Jessica Dachowski uses specific and calculated adjustments to correct not only pelvic imbalances, but also reduce nerve interference in the mother's neck and back. The Webster Technique - along with protocols used in advanced diplomate training - has shown a very high success rate in allowing babies in the breech position, to go into a head down / vertex position - facilitating a safer, complication-free delivery for both mom and baby.
Many women imagine that the birthing process is a traumatic experience for the baby and mother, given all the pushing and pulling that is involved - but it doesn't have to be if the appropriate preparations are made in advance. Yet, more people do a better job of preparing their child's room prior to being born, than preparing the mother's body for the baby to have a healthy and happy birth.
As babies grow into toddlers, they start to lift their heads up, sit, crawl, and walk. Unfortunately for every attempt at standing, a toddler can fall three to five times as much - each time exerting compression and stress to their young and impressionable spines, and blocking or diminishing nerve flow from reaching certain parts of their bodies.
Research has demonstrated that diminished nerve flow (or nerve interference) due to spinal misalignments, can precipitate a wide range of health problems into the child’s teenage years, including chronic ear infections, trouble walking, rashes, allergies, autism, bed-wetting, learning disorders / ADHD, headaches, scoliosis, acid reflux, and asthma.
