Pregnancy Chiropractic Care
Once pregnant, making sure everything is lined up properly can improve the way your body accommodates the extra forces on your body and reduces the pain you may experience.
Infant Chiropractic Care
Babies may need adjustments because birth can be just a hard for baby as it can be for Mom. Chiropractic is perfect for making sure any spinal misalignments that occur are gently corrected so that your baby can grow with everything communicating as optimally as possible.
Children & Family Chiropractic Care
A child encounters many physical stresses during their growing years. The resulting problems in children’s spines can occur at almost any point in their development and growth.
General Health & Wellness
A chiropractic adjustment does not take long. Dr. Smith will evaluate your spine and determine when and where the bones in your spine require an adjustment. Each visit will include meeting with Dr. Dmith to review your current level of functioning.
At Life Care Family Wellness & Chiropractic we have the pleasure of also being able to offer massage therapy, feeding therapy, and lactation support through our team of wellness providers.

WE LOVE DR. KRISTEN!! 3 of my 6 kids and myself see her. She is the sweetest most caring person. She always remembers little details about things you share with her and that shows she really pays attention when you're talking. One of my twins was getting sick all the time so I finally took him to see her. She not only adjusted him but suggested some supplements I could give him to boost his immune system. He's doing great now. Plus, I have never felt better myself and notice I don't get migraines as often as I used since seeing her.

Dr. Kristin Smith is a phenomenal chiropractor. She is so personable & certainly makes you feel like part of the family. She is always quick to fit you in for an adjustment any time you need it. She’s very responsive & will answer any question you have in a timely manner. We have had such an amazing experience with Life Care Family Wellness, from visiting throughout my pregnancy, to postpartum, to my husband and our baby being adjusted.

I have been going to Dr. Kristin Smith for years! She has helped me with my lower back pain, migraines and so much more! I can not recommend her enough. She treated me before my pregnancy, during my pregnancy and after.Before I was pregnant I would visit Dr. Smith at her Slidell office for routine maintenance. I would basically visit every time my neck was stiff or my back would go out. I never thought about needing chiropractic care when I was pregnant until I started experiencing ligament pain. These pains would get so bad, it was hard to walk. After belly bands and other things would not work I called Dr. Smith begging for relief! Within one or two visits I was back on my feet.Not only has she helped me, she has also helped my daughter. Playing the formula game with an infant was not fun. Her sleep was off, her belly full of gas and this momma was done! One day I was getting adjusted and she said, let me take a look. Let’s just say, from that moment on we made sure to get in atleast once a month. Dr. Kristin Smith is truly a wealth of knowledge that cares about her patients. Everyone I have sent there usually calls me and says something they’ve learned from her. I can’t recommend her enough. She truly is Slidell, La best chiropractor!

My son is 6 and has always had a problem wetting the bed at night. I had talked about getting him several times with Kristin. Well we finally did and this is his second night of no bed wetting. I cannot tell y’all how excited he is. Kristin said his sacral really needed adjustment. She’s the best guys.

I'm not sure if it's the doctor (in this case Kristen) or maybe it's just because she's a chiropractor. I'm not sure but you know you've found the right doctor when it feels (pardon the pun) like you're visiting family. Well, not the in-laws. Maybe friends would be a better description.From the first visit that my wife and I had, to even the kids it's been great. The front office secretary is amazing. The customer service is top notch. She remembers names, kids, places you've vacationed too, goals etc. This is who you need as the first face people see when coming into a doctors office.I haven't had any experiences with the other doctors, but they do at least acknowledge you when they enter the waiting room. Which by the way is never really long. Longest wait was maybe 15 min. And that's only because my whole family (5 of us) was going in to get adjusted.Doc Kristen makes you feel at home, never really seems rushed, she's always looking for feedback as to your condition what works what doesn't. She never forces the crack unlike 2 other chiropractors I've seen....there's no "wing dinger"! (YouTube that Apparently you can make a mess doing that)She's amazing it's just plain and simple. She seems to truly care about her patients. We've been seeing her for a couple of years now. She'll straighten you out!

Best chiropractor and doctor I have ever been to. So extremely helpful and good at what she does. Really listens to her patients and spends her time getting to know you and what you need help with. Works on my entire family and we all adore her. Very lucky to have her as a doctor.

If I could give Dr. Smith and her staff a 10 star rating, I would.I first visited Dr. Smith due to pregnancy pains.She took the time out to get to know me and ask questions about where my pains were located, how severe they were, what triggered them, and how long I had been having them for.She is super knowledgeable and gives in-depth details about why certain pains may be occurring and is never bothered by all of my questions.After my second adjustment, I felt a huge difference and continued seeing her for weekly appointments.Needless to say, I was able to give birth to my baby naturally with no pain medication and I give all credit to Dr. Smith for aligning my body and making labor and delivery smooth sailing!!I recommend anyone, pregnant or not to see her as she will make your body feel more mobile and symmetrical.My newborn is now a new patient of hers and I look forward to all the benefits chiropractic care will provide for my baby.Thanks again Dr. Smith and staff!! You are always the highlight of my week!!!

The absolute best! I have not known any other chiropractor who cares for her patient as much as she does. If I have questions regarding my special needs son's health issues, I know I can always send her a message and she takes the time to answer and would even ask her colleagues if she is not sure about it. We live an hour away and will brave through New Orleans traffic just to see her.

As a chiropractor myself, my body takes a beating while I take care of others. Dr. Smith keeps my back and neck in check! Thanks, Doc!

You'd be hard pressed to find a more caring, holistic person with such skill! Dr. Smith is amazing! She is well educated on different chiropractic styles and can easily customize to your needs. Due to 2 slipped discs in my neck I could barely turn my head to see around me. My arms constantly went numbed due to one disc pressing on a nerve. After a few visits with Dr. Smith, I could almost look behind me and the frequent numbing of my arms stopped. The best part is I could bring my three kids to the visits. In fact she also works with my 8 year old son, who's hips caused his feet to point inward, which had him often tripping over his own feet. He is doing so much better under her care. A good chiropractor is hard to find, a great one impossible. She is the impossible. I can't recommend her enough.
