As a chiropractor, I understand the body’s ability to adapt and thrive in its environment. It wasn’t until the birth of my first daughter did I get a front row seat to witness this awesome power. Having planned a water birth with a midwife and doula present, we prepared for her arrival with excitement. As labor progressed ever so slowly over the course of 32 hours, I saw how powerful and amazing the process of labor and delivery is. While there were some complications throughout the process, I saw how my wife’s body adapted and how she had this amazing power from somewhere deep inside to delivery our beautiful, healthy girl. The power that is inside all of us allows us to thrive. Chiropractic removes any interference to that power, resulting in a more vibrant, healthy life. Being a part of that process took my understanding to a whole new level and I can’t wait to share that with you.
Having practiced in Charlotte for over 12 years, I have been given the opportunity to work with so many moms and dads, kids, and families to make a difference in their lives and allow them to have that healthier, more vibrant life that I have seen in my family. We all get adjusted regularly, including minutes after both of my daughter’s births, to maintain a healthy body.
I graduated from National College of Chiropractic, now National University of Health Sciences, in 2002. After graduation, I was awarded Fellow status from the Acupuncture Society of America and am certified in Webster Technique through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA). I hold memberships in the North Carolina Chiropractic Association (NCCA), of which I am the Senior Vice President, the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) and the ICPA.
Why should I have chiropractic care during pregnancy?
Chiropractic care during pregnancy can provide benefits for women who are pregnant. During pregnancy, there are several physiological and endocrinological changes that occur in preparation for creating the environment for the developing baby.
Benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy include:
· Maintaining a healthier pregnancy
· Allowing optimal positioning of baby to reduce chance of breech presentation
· Controlling symptoms of nausea
· Reducing the time of labor and delivery
· Relieving back, neck or joint pain
· Preventing a potential cesarean delivery
Why should I have my newborn and infant checked by a chiropractor?
Birth, whether vaginal or by cesarean delivery, is one of the most traumatic events in our lives. The force and stress placed on the spine can affect a baby’s health for a lifetime. Starting a baby’s life off with a properly functioning spine and nervous system allows them to grow and develop without abnormal stress. Chiropractic care for newborns and infants is safe, extremely gentile and highly effective. Dr. Jaffe has been adjusting both of his daughters since they were minutes old.
Benefits of chiropractic care for newborns and infants include:
· Improved sleep and digestion
· Reduction of colic
· Better breastfeeding
· Correction of torticollis
· Strengthened immune system
· Greatly improved ability to thrive and grow
· Help with teething, ear infections and constipation
Chiropractic has been helping kids for generations. Dr. Jaffe has been trusted to help hundreds of families as a Charlotte Chiropractor. We would be honored to care for your children as well.

Bio: I'll never forget that adjustment. At first I was going to cancel my appointment because I felt great; thankfully I decided to keep it. Leaving the office the sun was shining brighter, my music sounded clearer, I was happier... all of this when I didn't think I could feel any better. It was at that moment that I realized there was so much more to chiropractic than pain, or other conditions/symptoms, and it was also at that moment that I knew I wanted to become a chiropractor myself.
Serving infants, children, and adults by offering unlimited chiropractic care with monthly memberships. Individual and family plans available. It's chiropractic made for you.

As a teenager, I suffered from a devastating football injury, losing my ability to walk. After I went to an upper cervical doctor, within 2 visits not only was I feeling better than I had felt after 3 months of intensive physical therapy, I made a vow to myself that I would preach this message to the world so families and children would not suffer as I had. My goal is to be proactive and serve pregnant moms and children eliminating that painful process that I had to endure.
Description of services:
At the Upper Cervical Spine Center, our approach is very unique compared to other chiropractors. We are experts at correcting the top two bones in the neck (the atlas/axis). Our research indicates that the only area in the spine that is susceptible to injury is in the upper neck. These 2 bones are the most freely moveable joints in the spine. When we have a subluxation (misalignment) resulting in pressure at the brainstem, the entire spinal column, including the hips, has to compensate in relation to what is occurring at the upper part of the neck. It doesn't matter what compensations are occurring at the lower part of the spine if the neck is misaligned; if not properly corrected, the gravitational field of the neck will always pull the back/hips out of alignment. Our specialty is corrective care; every visit may not require an adjustment. In fact, we have a computer that tells us when a correction is needed but more importantly, when one is not.

Children & Chiropractic
The birth process, even under normal conditions, is frequently the first cause of spinal stress. As the head of the child appears, the physician often grabs the baby’s head and twists it around in a figure-eight motion, lifting it up to receive the lower shoulder and then down to receive the upper shoulder. This creates significant stress on the spine of the newborn. Dr. Godfrey Gutmann, a German physician, conducted a study of over 1,000 newborns shortly after birth. He discovered that over 80% of the infants had suffered trauma to their cervical spine, which resulted in spinal misalignments.
Birth is just the beginning of growth for children. Babies are constantly moving, falling down and bumping into things as they explore their new world. The typical child will fall an average of twenty five times each day while learning to walk.
Children fall while learning to walk, fall at the playground and off bicycles, bump their heads, and get into numerous injuries in sports. These spinal stresses build up in the body over their lifetime. Chiropractic care is needed in children to restore the alignment of the spine allowing for proper nerve function and optimum growth during the development of your child.
Pregnancy and Chiropractic
Chiropractic care should be an important part of your prenatal and postnatal care. Dr. Golden has training and experience in caring for mothers whether it's before or after delivery. She understands that pre-existing spinal misalignments can lead too neuromuscular and bio mechanical imbalances which stress the body and cause women to have discomfort and difficulty performing normal, daily activities. Dr. Golden performs thorough examinations and gentle, specific adjustments to help get your body functioning as it was designed.
