Receiving chiropractic care during pregnancy is safe and gentle. It also helps to alleviate certain symptoms of pain and discomfort involved with pregnancy which allows you to have a smoother and more comfortable pregnancy up to delivery. Receiving regular chiropractic adjustments during pregnancy can help ease back and neck pain, nausea, and general discomfort. As the baby grows your uterus and abdomen will expand to hold the growing baby. This puts pressure on your lower vertebrae, misaligns your pelvis, and can even cause sciatica to develop. By getting your spine adjusted, it keeps your body in proper alignment helping to reduce these pregnancy symptoms. Regular chiropractic care can also help you to relax, which will give you the best chance for a smooth and easy delivery. Less stress on the mother equals less stress on your growing baby.
Chiropractic adjustments are completely safe all the way through to the end of pregnancy. There are other benefits to receiving spinal adjustments such as less discomfort, fewer breech births, and a less complicated delivery. Many women wait to receive adjustments late into their pregnancy to help in the movement of the baby’s head down into position for vaginal childbirth. Chiropractic is a safe and very effective in turning breech babies. Dr. Matt has successfully turned breech babies over the past 18 years of practice.
Most of the problems adults get treated for begin in childhood. The first trauma often occurs at birth, especially if a child is born by c-section or with the use of forceps or suction. Diapers can be bulky and place pressure on the hip joints. Learning to walk and falling down and then later on children tend to fall through play such as tumbling off a bike or from the monkey bars on a playground. Even roughhousing with friends can start habits of trauma to develop. If your child is having any of the following: frequent ear infections, colds, trouble breathing, sinus infections, allergies, difficulty concentrating, bed wetting, or what is known as “growing pains”, they should come in for a checkup. Not because chiropractic is a treatment for these conditions, but because these symptoms can be the result of interference with the nerves that control certain glands and organs.
