Pregnancy and Pediatric Chiropractic
at Freedom Chiropractic

Pregnant woman getting adjustmentWhen you’re expecting, you might think that discomfort is inevitable. You have hormones flooding your body to prepare you for labor, making your ligaments and muscles lax. The result? Low back pain, sciatica, mid-back pain and headaches. These are just a few of the many problems that can be addressed through our care.

When you’re expecting, the better aligned your spine and pelvis are, the greater chance your body has at allowing your baby to develop optimally and have a successful labor and delivery.

The Care You Need During Pregnancy

Your care will be tailored to your needs. For example, if you’re an existing patient and become pregnant, we may not change your care schedule. If you’re new to us, you may need to see us 2-3 times a week to start. After your baby is born, we encourage you to continue care due to the demands of breastfeeding and having little sleep.

We won’t take X-rays on you, but we have a MyoVision scanner that can show us areas of interference in your spine. When it comes to your adjustments, we have a table that will accommodate your belly and allow you to lie face down. Moms love it since they haven’t been able to for so long!

The Benefits of Pediatric Chiropractic

A lot of people wonder, “Why would I bring my child to a chiropractor?” From the moment they’re born, making their way out of a tiny birthing canal or being extracted via C-section, there is a likelihood of trauma to the spine. Even a natural delivery means twisting and pulling. Though necessary to get your baby out, it results in damage.

Since a baby can’t tell you when something is wrong, they may show symptoms that don’t reflect what you’d expect from someone in pain. That’s why we recommend an evaluation from early on in life. Our adjustments for babies and children involve the gentlest touch and aren’t forceful in any way.

Ensuring Proper Spinal Alignment

When the spinal column is in alignment, there is less interference with your body’s ability to heal and function. If we begin aligning the spine at a young age instead of waiting for a problem, your child has the best opportunity to experience abundant health.

Most of our pediatric patients are what we call “Well Babies.” This means they don’t have problems but still see us periodically to maintain their health. As your baby grows into a child, trauma occurs daily. It’s a good idea to have them reevaluated at least every month or two, ensuring their spine stays in good shape.

Some of the most common pediatric issues we see include

  • Asthma
  • Allergies

  • Digestive issues
  • Colic
