Pregnancy

Chiropractic care is a safe, gentle and drug free form of treatment for pregnancy related conditions.

According to the American Pregnancy Association “there are no known contraindications to chiropractic care throughout pregnancy”. [3]

Potential benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy:

  • Maintaining a healthier pregnancy
  • Controlling symptoms of nausea
  • Reducing the time of labour and delivery
  • Relieving back, neck or joint pain

Statistical evidence

  • 75%-84% of women who receive chiropractic care during pregnancy report relief of back pain
  • Substantial relief from back pain is experienced with an average of 1.8 chiropractic treatments
  • Women who seek chiropractic care during pregnancy report a 24% shorter labour and delivery time than those who don’t seek care

Infancy

A study of 1,250 babies […] found that 95% of the group were not only misaligned but also had cervical strain. [The researcher] also noted that the infants responded with immediate muscular relaxation and had a greater ability to sleep after specific spinal adjustments [5]

Eight additional reasons parents take their children to see a chiropractor:

  1. To encourage good neural plasticity (brain and nerve development)
  2. To support “first-class” nerve communication throughout the body to promote health and well being
  3. To help strengthen a child’s immunity
  4. To help improve breast feeding issues and colic
  5. To reduce the impact of modern living on child health
  6. To support digestive strength
  7. To diminish nerve interference which may impact on a child’s capacity to learn and concentrate
  8. To promote body balance (poor posture/asthma/allergies and bed wetting)
