As your body changes during pregnancy, it's natural to experience new aches and pains. Unfortunately, many of the traditional treatments for pain relief, such as medication, are off-limits for pregnant women.
Chiropractic care is a safe and effective alternative that can help to relieve pain and improve overall wellness during pregnancy. At Denner Chiropractic & Performance we can help to reduce pain, improve mobility, and promote a healthy pregnancy.

The pelvic floor is a group of muscles that support the organs in the pelvis, including the bladder, uterus, and rectum.
Pelvic floor dysfunction commonly occurs when these muscles are carrying tightness and tension.

Pelvic floor dysfunction can cause a range of uncomfortable symptoms, from pain and incontinence to general dysfunction. One of the most common causes of this condition is the overactivation of the muscles of the pelvic floor. When these muscles lack stability, they can become over-recruited and over-contracted, which can lead to increased pain and dysfunction.
To better understand the impact of overactivation, imagine contracting your bicep muscle and holding this contraction throughout the entire day.
It's no surprise that pain and dysfunction would soon follow. In the same way, the problem with the pelvic floor isn't necessarily a lack of strength, but rather an inability to relax and stabilize in the correct way.
By focusing on improving stability and relaxation in the pelvic floor muscles, individuals with pelvic floor dysfunction can experience a significant reduction in their symptoms.

As people age, they often experience problems with their musculoskeletal system. This can lead to pain, stiffness, and reduced mobility. While there is no way to prevent all age-related musculoskeletal problems, there are measures that can be taken to reduce the risk of developing them.
Geriatric musculoskeletal care focuses on preserving and improving the function of joints, muscles, and bones. Treatment plans are tailored to the individual, taking into account their unique needs and goals.
Common treatments include physical therapy, strength training, and pain management. By receiving regular care, older adults can stay active and independent for longer.
