Why Chiropractic Care for Children and Pregnant Women


Many of the spinal problems we see in adults today started at birth. The reason this can happen is because the natural birthing method causes stress on an infant’s spine and developing nerves. This leads to many newborn health complaints such as Colic, sleeping disturbances, allergic reactions, and breathing problems that all can be traced to nerve system stress. Now more than ever parents are seeking chiropractic care for their children and themselves.

When a child is born, significant spinal trauma can happen at birth. This is why many parents have their newborns checked out right away by a Doctor of Chiropractic. As a child grows and develops, spinal alignment is important for learning activities such as, holding head up, crawling, sitting and walking.

As a child ages and begins to be more active in play and is in sport activities such as riding a bike, or on a baseball team it is important to know that spinal misalignment may happen. During this critical time of rapid growth and development, if an injury is neglected it could lead to serious health problems later on. Spinal adjustments help assist the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Small injuries throughout childhood will affect future development of the spine which can cause impaired nervous system function.

The most common reason parents seek chiropractic care for their child is because of some type of injury that took place. In most cases, these misalignment might not have immediate pain or symptoms. It is important to have regular spinal checkups early on to control any possible spinal injury that may lead to adverse health outcomes.  Catching a spinal injury early in life can fix the issues people face on later on in life. This is why it is critical to have proper spinal hygiene for optimal health.

Now, for women who are pregnant it important to u0517cac500bf980dbf4ff3894632181dunderstand the benefits of receiving chiropractic treatment before giving birth to help in the delivery process. When a woman is pregnant her systems and organs are now providing for two, so proper functioning is critical for a healthy pregnancy and birth. Chiropractic care throughout pregnancy deals with enhancing nervous system function.  A pregnant women’s spine and pelvis go through many fast changes trying to adapt to a growing baby.

During the delivery process not only is the mother’s body under a lot of stress, the baby’s body is going through a lot too. It is recommended by Dr. Larry Webster to use The Webster Technique, which helps correct sacral subluxation. This technique is used on many pregnant women to balance the muscles and ligaments in the women’s pelvis, and reduce tension in the uterus. This in turn can help release tensions that may affect baby positioning. It is said that this adjustment on pregnant women can help prepare mother and child for easier and safer delivery.
