Pregnancy & Pediatrics
A woman undergoes many changes during pregnancy including weight gain and changes in posture, due to hormones which relax the ligaments. These changes in the skeletal system can lead to low back pain, sciatica, hip pain, and can even affect the position of the uterus. Chiropractic offers a safe, gentle approach to correcting the spine and pelvis, which can improve quality of life and birth outcomes. Chiropractic care during pregnancy can help the mother and baby to experience a less painful and drug-free birth.
During the post-natal period chiropractic care can help new moms recover and adapt to newfound challenges. Additionally, many parents choose to get baby checked to determine if chiropractic can help with normal development following the birth process.
Children can benefit from chiropractic care as their normal body structures develop to help prevent spinal stresses. Injuries and falls, repetitive sport motions, carrying heavy backpacks and sitting all day in a classroom can affect their growing spine and nervous system. Treatment for children is gentle and effective to make sure their nervous system can properly coordinate development and healing.
