CHIROPRACTIC CARE DURING PREGNANCY
While pregnant, many changes occur within the body in order to prepare for the developing baby. These physiological and endocrinological changes can result in reduced joint motion/joint dysfunction. Chiropractic care will help establish the correct balance and alignment needed for the body to work more effectively. It will also help with pelvic changes.
A misaligned pelvis can reduce the room available for the developing baby and also make it difficult for the baby to get into position for delivery.

Gait Analyses are also ideal for runners who want to continue logging those miles but are being plagued by persistent nagging pain or injuries.

CHIROPRACTIC CARE FOR KIDS
The International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) study on the Safety and Effectiveness of Chiropractic Care for Children show that chiropractic care is safe for children. Reports indicate improvements in sleeping, behavior and attitude, and immune system function.
Children’s spines can encounter physical stresses at any point in their development and growth including time in utero. Spinal and cranial misalignments can cause nervous system irritation leading to problems such as colic, reflux, breastfeeding difficulties, sleep disturbances, allergic reactions, and chronic infections.
There are many developmental milestones that are important times to have a child checked by a chiropractor especially when learning to hold up the head, sitting upright, crawling, and walking. Regular chiropractic checkups are essential as the child endures physical stresses to the growing spine and nervous system.
SIGNS INDICATING SPINAL PROBLEMS IN CHILDREN:
- Disrupted sleep patterns
- Breastfeeding difficulties
- Reduced head or neck movement
- Uneven shoulders
COMMON CHILDHOOD PROBLEMS LINKED WITH SPINAL DYSFUNCTION:
- Recurrent ear infections
- Persistent sore throats and colds
- Bedwetting and/or constipation
- Growing pains
SAFETY FOR CHILDREN
Chiropractors have been adjusting children’s spines for more than 100 years and have an excellent safety record. A study conducted by the ICPA showed only a few children out of more than 10,000 visits experienced minor discomfort and fussiness.
LEVEL OF DISCOMFORT
Chiropractic care for children is painless, except if the child has experienced an injury.
This area may be sensitive but will heal more effectively after the adjustment.
NUMBER OF VISITS
In most cases, a child’s spine will respond faster than adults requiring fewer adjustments.
The number of adjustments will vary depending on many factors.
