Prenatal & Pediatric Care

PRENATAL CARE

Chiropractic care is becoming increasingly popular with expectant mothers who want to prepare themselves for safer and easier births – and for good reason.  Numerous studies have shown that regular adjustments help mothers-to-be maintain a healthy pregnancy by balancing the pelvis, allowing the baby to grow without constraint and ensuring the baby gets into the proper position for birth.

There are no known contraindications to chiropractic care for expectant mothers.  In fact, regular adjustments can help in a myriad of ways by:

  • Controlling symptoms of nausea
  • Relieving back, neck or joint pain
  • Relieving headaches
  • Improving Posture Sciatica and/or hip pain
  • Improving overall mobility
  • Maintaining uterine ligament flexibility & balance
  • Enhancing the function of the mother’s nervous system
  • Maintaining a healthier pregnancy
  • Increasing comfort throughout the third trimester
  • Reducing the time of labor and delivery
  • Preventing a potential cesarean section

Diet and nutrition play an important role in any pregnancy.  While chiropractic care is important, our doctors also work with expectant mothers nutritionally by customizing a plan of nutritional supplementation to ensure the growing baby receives all necessary nutrients.

PEDIATRIC CARE

Many of the health problems seen in adults actually begin as early as birth.

The birthing process can cause spinal misalignment, cranial misalignment and nerve irritation, that can result in a wide variety of newborn complaints including colic, breathing problems nursing difficulties, sleep disturbances, allergic reactions and chronic infections.

As a child grows, accidental slips and falls are common.  When the older child begins to participate in sports and other physically demanding activities, the likelihood of accidental trauma increases.  A simple fall off a bike or tackle on the sports field can result in an undetected injury that, if left uncorrected, can cause serious problems in the long term.
