Vaughan Chiropractor Presents The Wellness Pregnancy Workshop

pregnant mom with child The Wellness Pregnancy WorkshopToday, pregnancy is seen more like a health condition than a beautiful normal process of nature.  Caesarean rates are high and intervention with medicine, hospital monitoring equipment and surgery has now become a norm. Many first time moms-to-be go through their pregnancy with fears of the unknown and without a solid birth plan.

However, the process of pregnancy is a natural human experience to be cherished. The goal should be an easier, safer and healthier birth for both mom and baby. And the closer to nature the birthing process is, the better it is for both mom and baby.

The objective of this workshop is to lead expectant moms and moms-to-be to make natural holistic health care choices so they can experience a Wellness Pregnancy for themselves. 

At this workshop, you will learn: 

  • Key dietary recommendations that provides optimal nutritional support for mom and for the growing baby.
  • Simple exercise routines to help maintain fitness during pregnancy.
  • How to choose your pregnancy health care team and who should be on your health care team.
  • How pregnancy chiropractic care and Webster Technique can help maintain spinal and pelvic balance to promote an easier birth.
  • And much much more.

The Top 10 Reasons For Your Child To Have A Chiropractic Check-Up

Saturday, February 11th, 2012

Mom and Child 150x150 The Top 10 Reasons For Your Child To Have A Chiropractic Check UpMaple (Vaughan), Ontario - It is common for people to seek treatment from chiropractors for low back pain, neck pain, headaches or even injuries from work and car accidents.  These are conditions that are mostly seen in adults.   Since a child will not typically complain of low back pain, neck pain or headaches, the parents may never see a reason to get their child checked by a chiropractor for a well exam or a spinal / posture check-up.   However, regardless of any pain or symptom, a child may have spinal misalignments or posture displacements that could be putting strain on their nervous system.  Since the nervous system controls and co-ordinates every function of the body, it’s imperative that the nervous system remains as stress-free as possible for optimal health, optimal growth and optimal body function.

Consider this … spinal misalignments can occur at any time throughout the child’s growth, development and life.

Here are the 10 top reasons for your child to have a chiropractic check-up:

family 7 300x199 Back To Health Chiropractic Centre Is Your Family Wellness CentreOver the last 6 years at Back To Health Chiropractic Centre, we have had the extreme pleasure of serving over a thousand patients and their families.  Our vision is to see:


“Children, youths and families realizing their full potential,
Living with the full expression of  health and love,
Enjoying a long-lasting, healthy, happy and active quality of life.”

Our focus at Back To Health Chiropractic Centre is health and wellness for the whole family.  With childhood diseases on the rise these days (eg. asthma, allergies, obesity, diabetes, learning disorders, behavioural disorders) it’s not enough that mom or dad are the only ones on the path to health and wellness.  The time for children health and wellness is now.

Many parents today are more educated and more informed about health, wellness and prevention.  Many parents of our Centre are already making wiser health choices for their children, whether it’s about the types of foods their child eats or the amount of physical activity their child gets.  Make chiropractic care one of those health choices for your child.  Ask Dr. Walter how children can benefit from chiropractic care. If your children haven’t been checked recently for spinal misalignments, let us know and we will do spinal check up for them. They deserve it! Likewise, you can look for a family wellness chiropractor in your community that cares for children.

During this past year, Dr. Walter has completed an extensive chiropractic pediatric training with the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPAwww.icpa4kids.org). Dr. Walter is providing chiropractic care for children of all ages including infants and newborns. A component of family wellness care is chiropractic pregnancy care – chiropractic care before and during pregnancy for the mom-to-be. Chiropractic adjustments for pregnant women are gentle, safe and always performed with comfort.

If you know anyhow who is pregnant or is planning to be pregnant, let them know that chiropractic is an option for optimal health and wellness and recommend a chiropractic check-up.  We also have lots of resources and information we can pass on to them.

As always, we acknowledge you for your commitment to being the healthiest you can be and thank for sharing chiropractic stories and referring your family and friends to our Centre.
