PREGNANCY AND CHILDREN
Pregnancy and children
Chiropractors are trained to work with people of all ages including babies, children and pregnant women. When treating children we use very gentle techniques appropriate for the infant or child’s spine. We are happy to offer a free check-up for infants and pre-school children annually.
Chiropractic treatment offers safe gentle relief from the possible discomfort of pregnancy. As a woman’s body changes during pregnancy her posture changes too. There is a softening of the sacro-iliac ligaments in the pelvis and her weight increases. These changes can lead to additional pressure on joints in various parts of the body, including the spine or pelvis.
