Chiropractic: A Family Affair

Chiropractic Central -A Family AffairJane Godfrey has been a Chiropractic Central regular for close to 7 years and for the Godfrey family, it has become a family affair.

This hasn’t always been the case though, as Jane had never been to a chiropractor before this and was a bit of a sceptic and didn’t recognise the benefit of it. “It was only after a completing an impromptu spinal check at my gym, and being referred to Dr Sarah that I can see the whole health benefits of chiropractic,” said Jane.

Jane previously had a lot of allergy related illness and found that general illness like head colds lingered far too long, but since seeing Dr Sarah, Jane has been able to get over illnesses much quicker. Jane also received adjustments whilst pregnant with her daughters. “Receiving adjustments continually throughout both my pregnancies and up until the week before birth meant that I was strong and comfortable throughout, without any musculoskeletal issues.” Jane’s husband is a builder and benefits from chiropractic for repetitive strain injuries and improved overall health.

Jane has also seen a lot of benefits for her two daughters aged 4 ½ and 2. Both her daughters have been to chiropractic once a month since their birth. As a PE teacher, Jane recognised the need for maintaining spinal health, ensuring the girls’ gait developed as they grew, and based on her experience, building a strong immune system. “My girls have a strong immune system and they very rarely get sick from time at day care. Any parent with children knows that so many bugs are brought home from day care and pre-school.”

Prevention is better than cure is an apt way of describing Jane’s reason for making regular trips to Chiropractic Central a family affair. “It’s important for people to realise that you don’t have to have anything wrong with you to see a chiropractor,” said Jane. “It’s great to have strong spinal health and an improved immune system.  Chiropractic can improve specifics, but my family has found it also helps maintain our general health.”

Chiropractic Central’s upcoming Mums and Bubs Seminar on Saturday, 18 July will be a great opportunity for mums to discover the benefits of chiropractic and a number of other holistic health approaches for themselves and their young families.

Mums and Bubs Seminar

Getting Knocked Up, Blocked Up or already Flocked Up with kids?

Join us at our Mums & Bubs seminar on July 18th!

Chiropractic Central Lane Cove - Mums and Bubs Seminar 2015 1aAs a doctor of chiropractic, it is part of my mission to educate families about natural solutions to optimise their health.  In line with that, Chiropractic Central has an amazing complimentary event coming up that brings together 6 dynamic women to present information about strategies to naturally support women getting ready for pregnancy, who are currently pregnant, and who have had children and want to support healthy development.

Below, I share my personal story that is inspiring Chiropractic Central’s upcoming Mums & Bubs Seminar on July 18th.

So for the first part of my life you could say I gave my mum a bit of a hard time (she would maybe disagree that it was longer than just the first part J). It started when my mum’s birthing plan didn’t go to plan.  I ended up having to be delivered by forceps and I came out with a very misshapen head, bruising and was not a very happy girl.  My mum was able to breast feed me for about 2 months but it became very challenging when I was having major digestive reflux and colic issues, so she decided to stop and put me on medication from the GP.  From there, when I was about 9, I started having major digestive issues and even though they couldn’t find a diagnosis for me I was again put on drugs for my symptoms.  My mum, being so concerned about me, had a friend recommend that she take me to see a wellness chiropractor to look at a natural and holistic approach and that’s when my life changed and I started getting healthy. 

Unfortunately my mum didn’t know anything about how sometimes a pelvic misalignment (which luckily can usually be helped naturally) can lead to uterine constraint which can cause a more difficult delivery and more interventions like forceps.   This type of delivery can put stress on a little baby spine which could possibly have been the cause of issues with my digestive system. Not being able to be breast fed for very long didn’t give my immune system a great chance at developing as optimally as possible which, in turn, can lead to future health issues.

Please don’t misunderstand me, I definitely don’t blame my mum – I love her so much and think she did everything she could and made the choices she thought best, out of love, with the information she knew.  This is not about judgement but about empowerment.  And this is my point and why I am so passionate about what I do.  I am all about getting as much information as possible and asking the right questions so I can make the best informed choice about my health and the health of my family, not just the easy choice or the one that everyone is making.

You’re very welcome to join us on Saturday the 18th of July for our “Getting Knocked Up, Blocked Up or already Flocked Up with kids” session.

There will be some great speakers, a lovely morning tea, a goodie bag full of specials from local businesses, and a few lucky door prizes.
