Paediatric and Pregnancy Chiropractic

Creating Healthy Families Begins With Children

As the nervous system is the master controller of the body, it’s important for children to get a head start in life by maximising its development. Sometimes the techniques used in the birth process itself, such as suction devices, forceps or caesarean delivery, produce unintentional damage.

Many adult problems can be traced back to some of these birth issues, as well as the everyday aspects of just being a kid: falling, jumping, collisions, contusions, concussions and broken bones. We firmly believe that it’s easier to raise healthy children than it is to fix broken adults.

Chiropractic During Pregnancy

Chiropractic care has many benefits for you and your baby if you choose to visit your chiropractor during pregnancy. Here, we use a specific technique with pregnant women called the Webster Technique®.

Prenatal Chiropractic for an Optimal Pregnancy

Research has demonstrated that the correct positioning of the baby in-utero affects the birth outcome. Optimal positioning also decreases the potential for undue stress on the baby’s developing spine. Specific chiropractic care helps the pelvic floor to relax, as well as the tendons, ligaments and muscles surrounding the womb. This reduction of tension helps to ensure an easier exit for the baby through the birth canal.

The Webster Technique®

Prenatal ChiropracticRequest Appointment

This safe and gentle adjustment method involves precise chiropractic analysis of the pelvis, with special attention to the sacral joints. It’s all about creating an optimal environment for the baby, with a lessening of negative conditions for the mum. The Webster Technique® has been acknowledged to:

  • Limit the aches and pains commonly associated with pregnancy and with more severe complaints such as SPD.
  • Improve structural balance in the spine and pelvis in order to give the baby the optimum space to develop.
  • Decrease the possibility of subluxations developing in the baby in utero.
  • Reduce the likelihood of breech or transverse positioning of the baby.
  • Allow for a straight-forward, normal and positive birth outcome.

We want our mums-to-be to experience the birth plan they were hoping to have. Dr Glenn Fredericksen (Chiropractor) is certified in this highly researched technique, and provides comfortable and effective care for the pregnant women in our practice.

Chiropractic Post-birth, For You, Your Baby and Children

Pediatric chiropractic careYou: Your body goes through many physical changes during birth and chiropractic helps your body to heal quickly and will support you as you adapt to the demands of parenthood.

Your baby: Gently removing subluxations caused by the forces of birth can help your baby to be calmer, feed well, sleep well and develop well.

Your child: As your baby grows and develops into a toddler and older child, chiropractic can help them to function optimally by removing subluxations caused by the numerous tumbles and bumps they take as they achieve new milestones.

Parents Choose Chiropractic For Their Children

Parents bring their children to us for such a variety of reasons, but they all have a common goal: they want their children to flourish and develop into healthy adults.

Parents are inspired by the safe and natural approach to health that chiropractic offers and understand the logical principle that it is far easier looking after good health rather than trying to fix poor-health.

We love babies of every age and size. Chiropractic and children go hand in hand and help our kids to grow up without challenges to their developing nervous systems. We are ready to help! Contact us today for a convenient appointment.
