Pregnancy & Pediatrics

Pregnancy and familyBecause we know that pregnancy is an exciting time, joyful yet often stressful, we at Dr. Jacques Charles Aesthetic’s Health & Wellness Institute, understand the importance of maintaining the body in optimum health and the commitment necessary to bring your baby into this world with the best Chiropractic care. Dr. Charles has taken special interest in helping women who are either trying to conceive, or already pregnant and suffering pain caused by vertebral subluxation. Chiropractic care as a conservative and alternative treatment is safe, effective, gentle, and can help to maintain a healthy pregnancy. Chiropractic care is drug-less and a pregnant woman does not have to worry about any negative effects to the expectant mother or the fetus. Chiropractic care can help with low back pain, sciatica, neck pain and more.

Chiropractic care can help tremendously in keeping the spine in proper alignment which in turn will keep the mother and baby in optimum health. Not only is Chiropractic care beneficial during pregnancy, it is also beneficial postpartum since a woman’s body changes after pregnancy. Besides the potential discomforts, there is a realignment of a woman’s natural body curvature to accommodate your balance and weight. In addition to this realignment, there are changes to your body posture which will lead to Lordosis (lordotic curvatures of the vertebral column, also known as secondary curvatures) that can cause a negative effect on the way you walk. To help alleviate various discomfort, and especially pain caused by back strain from weight gain, consider Chiropractic care as an option to promote well being and health.

Dr. Charles has an interest in helping both newborns and children who can also benefit from Chiropractic care. As part of their development and growth process, children will inevitably have accidents while learning how to crawl, walk, and during playtime. Dr. Charles loves caring for infants and children because he understand the importance of optimal health for a child’s developing immune system. Chiropractic care and support is highly recommended for the optimal health and well-being of children as it improves and optimizes a child’s developing immune system enabling them to function more efficiently as their body matures.

Dr. Charles has taken extensive additional training in the treatment of pregnant women and children. This extensive training is beyond what is offered in a Chiropractic college. Dr. Charles is Webster technique certified as well as a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA).
