Pregnancy & Pediatric Chiropractor • Dr. Robin Linster
Serving Arundel, York County, Kennebunk, Kennebunkport, Lyman, Biddeford & Alfred, Maine

Chiropractic care promotes a more comfortable pregnancy:

With the body changing drastically, the spinal column itself moves to accommodate a child and the extra weight. The pelvis undergoes many changes to compensate for the growing baby as well. Risk of misalignments and interference of the nervous system can increase as pregnancy continues. The pelvis supports the growing uterus with specific ligaments. If the bones of the pelvis are out of alignment, this will cause asymmetrical ligament support of the uterus. This results in a more difficult passage for the baby during delivery.

These structural changes can affect the nerves and the spinal cord, disrupting the normal communication of information between the brain and the body. Dr. Robin Linster can adjust the spine and extremities utilizing a variety of techniques including the Activator technique to help the body feel relaxed and subside pain or soreness.

Benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy:

  • Decreased lower back pain
  • Reduce or eliminate headaches
  • Reduction of nerve pain
  • Decreases joint pain

Chiropractic care to promote healthier infants, children and teenagers

When children come into this world, their bodies will be subjected to various kinds of stress. Even at birth, infants can be susceptible to spinal misalignment due to fetal positions in utero, a slow birth or a c-section. A brief pediatric check-up is not designed to detect possible “hidden damage” that a chiropractic exam would discover.

Early detection is the key to preventing potential pain or discomfort in the future. As a child develops, things can happen along the way. Poor posture, falls, injuries during athletic activities, can all affect how the body properly develops if there are misalignments in the spine.

When nerve interference exists because of vertebral subluxations, Chiropractic has been able to help with many conditions:

  • Infantile Colic
  • Allergies/Sinus Issues/Asthma
  • Constipation/Digestive Issues
  • Headaches / Migraines
  • Chronic Ear Infections
  • Scoliosis Detection and Treatment
  • TMJ Syndrome

Naturally ensure that a child is happy and healthy with chiropractic

The first thing we will do is to conduct a thorough history of your child’s health and any complaints. This is followed by a complete physical examination of the child’s spine.

When Dr. Linster performs spinal adjustments for infants and young children, it will involve a gentle fingertip pressure or the tip of the Activator instrument to correct spinal misalignments (subluxations). This will gently restore mobility to spinal joints. A child’s spine generally responds faster compared to an adult’s spine. The actual number of adjustments will vary depending on many factors, such as the length of time the problem has been present. Parents can feel confident about the safety of chiropractic for their child since it is non-invasive and medication free.

We called in around 9 am on Saturday and Dr. Linster answered the phone and had my wife and I in for initial consultations and adjustments within the hour.

When we arrived, the doctor was at the reception desk with paperwork ready for us. The paperwork was very easy to fill out and very in depth. If you are arriving for a scheduled appointment, I’d recommend allowing for about 20 minutes for paperwork.

I went back first and talked with Dr. Linster very in depth to clarify things on my paperwork and expand on other things. She had me do some posture and movement demonstrations that were very easy/low impact, but insightful for her. Most chiropractors I have been to have done extensive x-rays, and I was relieved that I didn’t need to have any done at Active Balance. After Dr. Linster got me on the table, she did an amazing amount of hip stretches and light adjustments to relieve some of the hip pain I suffer from due to a trauma. She then moved on to my back and neck, then ended with some of the same posture and movement demos to ensure some progress was made. We agreed on a treatment plan and she took my wife in.

My wife absolutely loved her time with Dr. Linster and was so amazed at how she had addressed many “clumsy” injuries my wife had that she forgot to write on paper.

As we left, she recommended that we take a two hour nap, so as I sign off on this review, I’ll be slipping into a post-adjustment mini-coma. We’re looking forward to our visits on Monday to continue the excellent initial care we received.

Thank you Dr. Linster for answering your phone and taking us in on a weekend with no notice. Your calm and considerate nature were very refreshing and welcomed.
