Pregnancy Chiropractor in Massapequa, NY: Dr. Konstantinos Tsakalos of Chiropractic Works offers chiropractic care for expecting mothers. When your body goes through the various stages and trials of pregnancy and labor, your spine is subjected to extreme amounts of stress. After all, it has to constantly adjust itself to bear the growing weight of another person over a short time frame of just nine months. The center of gravity shifts forward and substantial weight gain adds stress to the spine of the expecting mother. This stress frequently causes lower back pain, headaches and migraines, nausea, insomnia, and other symptoms that can wreak havoc on your quality of life.

Over 50% of pregnant women complain of lower back pain during pregnancy, caused primarily by the weight that must be balanced by an overworked spine and support system. Furthermore, how smooth and uncomplicated your delivery is has a lot to do with the state of your body. A body that is stressed, misaligned and worn out can result in complications during delivery – resulting in anything from a painful delivery to problems with positioning the baby correctly.

A study performed by the American Medical Association Board of Trustees concluded that women who received chiropractic care during their third trimester of pregnancy were able to carry and deliver with far more comfort. Plus, the need for painkillers was also reduced by half in several patients in another well-known study.

Chiropractic for Healthy Infants, Toddlers and Teenagers

Pediatric Chiropractor in Massapequa, NY:  Most people do not realize that infants and children are just as much in need of chiropractic care as adults. Infants, in particular, are susceptible to a wide range of possible ailments related to slow or traumatic birth and c-sections. Misalignment’s or subluxations put pressure on the delicate spinal nerves and interfere with the body’s ability to coordinate and control all phases of growth and development. Chiropractic for infants and children can help correct these potential problems through careful yet effective adjustments to remedy misalignment’s as they are identified.

Children particularly need pediatric chiropractic care as they age because a lot of the problems we experience as adults actually come from our childhood – either because we fell (think about how many times a day a baby falls when they are learning to walk, sometimes 10-20 times per day), broke something or simply had poor posture (which is extremely common today).

Posture problems particularly result from spending many hours in front of a computer or television, playing rough or carrying backpacks all day long at school. It is best to deal with any potential injury, misalignment, postural problem or other ailment and condition as soon as possible when it is identified. After all, the nervous system controls and coordinates every stage of growth and development; you should want to keep your child’s nervous system as healthy as possible through regular treatment.

In 2018 I suffered from a concussion that brought on terrible migraines and neck pain. I went to see my regular doctor hoping for some relief but all I got was a prescription for some seriously strong pills that I really didn’t want to take. I tried everything from physical therapy to seeing two different chiropractors but nothing seemed to work until I stumbled upon Dr. Kosta. After just two months of treatment with him all those post concussion symptoms vanished!! Now I’m a regular for maintenance visits and I can’t recommend Dr. Kosta enough, especially if you are struggling with concussion related issues like I once was. He’s been a game changer for me!
