Pregnancy and Pediatric Chiropractic

Mothers-to-be rave about chiropractic. Why? During pregnancy there are hormone changes. The shift in weight distribution can produce low back pain, headaches and aching feet.

Chiropractic offers all-natural relief—without drugs.

Chiropractic care creates an optimum environment for your baby. Receiving care gives him or her a great start—before and after birth.

Pre-Conception – Chiropractic care promotes a more regular menstrual cycle and optimal uterine function. It prepares the body to be strong, supple and balanced. Pregnancy – Regular chiropractic care during pregnancy helps maintain balance, alignment and flexibility. Many report less morning sickness. Labor and Birth – Mothers who get adjusted seem to require less high-tech intervention. Most report shorter, less traumatic births. Post-Delivery – Even natural births can stress a baby’s spine. Schedule a chiropractic checkup for your newborn as soon as possible. Both of Dr. Anderson’s boys were adjusted moments after birth.

Colic – Chiropractic care has been shown to be helpful for many infants suffering from colic. After all, if you have a raging headache, the only thing you can do is cry.

Constipation – Chiropractic isn’t a treatment for constipation. But when normal nerve supply to the digestive track and bowels are restored, proper function usually returns.

Torticollis – Newborns and infants often have a tendency to hold their head to one side. Others may prefer breast-feeding from only one side because of spinal issues.

Poor sleep – When spinal misalignments are reduced, more normal sleep patterns usually emerge.

Developmental milestones – As your baby supports her head, crawls, sits up and walks, count on a tumble or two. A chiropractic check up can be helpful.

Growing pains – These nonspecific aches and pains often result from overloaded, unbalanced backpacks. Or the forward head carriage caused by constant use of digital devices.

Children rarely have the long-standing spinal issues that adults have. So we use a light touch to make our adjustments safe, comfortable and effective. It often takes no more pressure than what you’d use to test the ripeness of a tomato.

We’ll never forget the mom who brought in her 3-month old infant. The child was suffering constipation, fussy and not sleeping. This young mother was at her wits end.

After one adjustment her child had a major bowel movement and immediately slept peacefully through the night. Life-changing for the entire family.

And while not a treatment for constipation, with restored nerve communications between brain and body, just about anything is possible.
