How Prenatal Chiropractic Care Helps Newborns and Babies
You don’t need a prenatal or pediatric chiropractor if you have a newborn baby that has no eating issues, discomforts (gas, bloating, grunting), and sleeps well. Just consider yourself very lucky. For many others, however, the first month of a baby’s life can be some of the most challenging and exhausting days and nights.
We believe that pediatric chiropractic care can help alleviate many newborn issues such as colic, breastfeeding issues, excessive spit up, acid reflux, irritability, and more. Dr. Waszak evaluates each baby and uses her “gentle touch” method to make spinal adjustments using only the tips of her fingers. This is considered both safe to the child and is often a good first step to address these issues
How a Pediatric Chiropractor Can Help Your Kids
For Toddlers, exploring the world is a fun, new milestone that takes practice. Along the way, falling down is inevitable and causes spinal stress. Ever heard of growing pains? For some young children, they may feel aches in their joints and bones at night. A pediatric chiropractor has the experience to alleviate some of their pain as they grow with safe gentle adjustments suitable for kids.
In older kids, injuries and bad habits can have a lasting impact on a child’s health and growth. Pediatric chiropractic care can positively affect things including ear infections, constipation, bed wetting, text neck, pain from heavy backpacks, scoliosis, and growing pains. As mentioned throughout our site, we know that chiropractic treatment is beneficial for all stages of life including young and older children.
- How can chiropractic care add comfort during pregnancy? As a woman’s weight increases, her center of gravity shifts outward and her postural compensations respond accordingly. This adds stress to the body and chiropractic adjustments along the way helps eliminate the causes of stress . It also aids in optimal fetal positioning which makes for a safer, easier birth.
- Is chiropractic care safe during pregnancy? Yes! There are no known risks. Chiropractic is a natural, effective way to relieve symptoms when many forms of intervention (such as medications) aren’t advised.
- When should a mother see a chiropractor? There’s never a time too early or late to start seeing a chiropractor. In fact, many of our patients seek care even before they conceive, whether for maintaining good health or aid fertility. What a great way to prepare your body for labor and birth!
- How are exams and treatments performed? After taking a thorough case history, we examine the patient to spot for imbalances and locating misaligned vertebrae causing nerve stress. Dr. Waszak will then deliver a specific, gentle spinal adjustment to correct the misalignment and each treatment plan is customized for each patient.
