Pediatric and Prenatal Chiropractic
Kids and Chiropractic
The first stress placed on a child’s spinal column is during the birthing process. Equally surprising is the fact that 26% of children surveyed at school reported a history of back pain. A child’s spine is frequently subjected to repeated forces in the process of learning to walk as well as a multitude of childhood mishaps, sports related injuries, and postural strains. Many adults that come to a chiropractor’s office show evidence of childhood in-juries to their spine that are a contributing factor for their pain today. This is why it is important to have your child’s spine checked regularly for any signs of spinal imbalances or misalignments.
Fortunately, chiropractic has had many positive results in treating some very common childhood maladies. In fact, a recent study showed that children under chiropractic care suffered from fewer ear infections than those whose parents sought medical care alone.
Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy
Chiropractic care also keeps you healthy during pregnancy and has been shown to aid in easing nausea, lowering time of labor and delivery, as well as relieving back, neck and other joint pain. We use an adjustable table that will allow us to safely adjust you at any stage of your pregnancy without additional pressure on your abdomen.
