As a mom herself, Dr. Heather Champion knows all parents just want what is best for their children. And when those children cry or are in pain, our hearts just break as we look for ways to comfort them. Like adults, children are susceptible to musculoskeletal issues and thus respond well to movement-based conservative treatments. Chiropractic is not a cure for infection or disease. The focus of chiropractic care is to make sure kiddos have free, comfortable movement.
- Ear Infections
- Sport Injuries
- Back Pain
- Neck Pain
- Acid Reflux
Dr. Heather recommends working directly with your pediatrician to establish a preventative routine. Conservative therapies such as chiropractic work alongside traditional medicine to treat symptoms and shorten durations.
Dr. Heather Champion will begin with a discussion of any concerns you have about your child and talk about events that may have led to this point. We want to understand your goals. After a detailed exam, Dr. Heather will discuss any findings and go over a plan for treatment. For children, treatments are always very gentle. Generally, fingertip pressure will be applied to the joint or muscle in order to release tension. The amount of pressure used is similar to the amount of pressure you can apply to your eyeball without pain. Another technique that Dr. Heather may use is the activator. This is a small instrument that can apply a quick, low force impulse to a targeted area.
Dr. Heather is very patient with children and understands that not every child is eager to try new things. At Champion Wellness, we want you and your child to have a pleasant experience in a fun, relaxed environment.
Hey mama, your body is capable of amazing things! You deserve to feel your best during pregnancy and Champion Wellness can help!
Thanks to an array of hormones, our bodies go through some pretty amazing physical changes in pregnancy. Some of these changes, unfortunately, have an impact on posture and comfort. As the baby becomes heavier, our center of gravity shifts and posture adjusts accordingly. There are also changes to the pelvis as the body begins to prepare for labor. Listen to your body. If you are feeling pain or tightness in your low back, hips, or pelvis call us today to schedule an evaluation!
With the use of chiropractic adjustments in conjunction with targeted muscle release techniques, Dr. Heather has been able to provide many pregnant women with relief from aches and pains during pregnancy. Another key element to care which Champion Wellness provides, is home care stretches and exercises to compliment your treatment plan.
At Champion Wellness, Dr. Heather utilizes a specialized chiropractic table that can accommodate a growing belly.
We would love to be part of your health journey during pregnancy and you do not need a referral to see a chiropractor! However, it is recommended that you still talk with your ob/gyn or midwife before seeking chiropractic treatment, especially if you’re at risk of any complications.
