What's New in May

Written By Merivale Chiropractic and Massage Clinic on May 3, 2018

Children's Month

May the Force be with you!

Chiropractic care has been helping families for years, and family care can start from the very beginning. Babies may benefit when their pregnant mothers receive chiropractic care. During this perod of weight gain and hormonal changes, many mothers seek chiropractic care, and they often report easier births.

Newborns, infants and children can benefit, too. The birth process may be the cause of our first subluxation! Even today's "natural" childbirth methods can affect an infant's spine. Preliminary studies suggest that colic, unusual crying, poor appetite, ear infections or erratic sleeping habits can be signs of spinal distress. (Rest assured: Newborns' adjustments are gentle. As a rule, no more pressure than you'd use to test the ripeness of a tomato is involved.)

Then learning to walk, ride a bike or play sports can produce so-called growing pains. Ignored, these problems may worsen until they can become more difficult to correct as an adult. Maintaining your child's spinal health with regular adjustments ensures that trauma-induced subluxations are corrected early, maximizing their alignment.  

Here at Merivale Chiropractic, our mission is to share the chiropractic story with every man, woman, and child we meet and to check them for vertebral subluxation complex and adjust them when necessary, preferably from birth. Interested in getting a full chiropractic assessment for you and your family? Call (613) 226-8142 today to find out how you can book your child for a full initial exam at only $47. That's a savings of $103! This offer is only available until the end of May, so act fast and call our office to book your appointment today.

Fem Prenatal

Mother's Day is just around the corner. To celebrate all the moms out there, our product of the month is Fem Prenatal. From the manufacturer:

Fem Prenatal® is a high quality multivitamin and mineral supplement in convenient, once-daily packets designed to provide important maternal nutrition and support healthy fetal growth and development. It is well accepted that the nutritional status of the mother plays an important role throughout pregnancy. Since pregnancy may impose an increased demand for certain nutrients, most doctors recommend the added insurance of a multivitamin and mineral supplement. Fem Prenatal is specifically formulated to provide a spectrum of essential nutrients in forms that may be gentler to the system.

This product is safe for all women of childbearing age. So whether you're an expecting mother, planning on starting a family, or perhaps just staying proactive, Fem Prenatal may be the right choice for you.

Metagenics provides pharmaceutical-grade supplements exclusively to health care providers. Call our office at (613) 226-8142 to place your order today.
