Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy and Early Childhood

Chiropractor KennesawChiropractic care in pregnancy is an important prenatal consideration. Chiropractic care can help maintain a healthy pregnancy by helping to control symptoms of nausea and inflammation; relieving back, neck and joint pain caused by the changes to the mother’s body; reduce the time of labor and delivery; balance the pelvis and uterine sack, which allows for optimal room for the baby to move, develop and thrive and possibly even prevent a possible cesarean delivery.

Chiropractic care for children starts during the mother’s pregnancy, but doesn’t have to end there – an increasing number of children are receiving chiropractic care. According to the American Chiropractic Association, chiropractic is the most common form of doctor-directed complementary or alternative medicine used by children. Some of the most common results reported from chiropractic care for children include – improved sleep, better attitude and behaviors, as well as increased immunity which results in fewer colds and flus.

Many chiropractors and parents also report improvements from colic, cranky babies, torticollis, hearing impairments, ADD/ADHD, clogged tear ducts, ear infections, asthma, allergies and headaches, sensory-neural dysfunction, respiratory disorders and bedwetting.

As children become older and advance to school age, those who get adjusted are often the healthiest at their school. Once participation in regular childhood activities begins, like riding a bike or skating, and traumas associated with these activities begin, small yet significant spinal misalignments may occur. If neglected, the injuries during this period of rapid growth may lead to more serious problems later in life.
