Pregnancy is often one of the happiest times in a woman’s life, but it can also be a stressful and difficult time. Chiropractic is an ideal means of naturally and safely alleviating the pain and discomfort of many pregnancy symptoms and complications while providing opportunity for you and your baby to grow and function properly.

Chiropractic during Pregnancy

During pregnancy, consistent chiropractic care can improve your coordination, flexibility, strength and balance. This can all ease the physical burden of carrying the baby, and make for a more pleasant pregnancy experience. Keeping your spine properly aligned will also maintain optimal nervous system function, which can help to alleviate the aches, pains, and discomforts associated with pregnancy.

Mothers who maintain a chiropractic regimen during pregnancy often find that their experience in labor is less difficult, their contractions reliably timed and the delivery easier and shorter than those who do not undergo chiropractic care.

Then, following the birth, chiropractic adjustments can help to correct distortion of the pelvis and restore energy and healthy body function in the long term.

Chiropractic for Newborn Children 

We don’t often think about how traumatic it is to be born, but babies experience any number of physical complications during the birthing process. Many of these traumas arise from spinal misalignment, including difficulty with breastfeeding, asthma, colic, and digestive problems. If not corrected early, some of these symptoms can continue to affect the newborn as it develops.

Pediatric chiropractic care can improve your child’s functions, helping to improve mobility, digestion and even increase immune system responsiveness. This is done through gentle correction of spinal misalignments which increase nerve system function and communication, and can reduce the risk for illness and infant health disorders.
