Prenatal And Pediatric Chiropractic Care
Pre-natal chiropractic care
Dr. Carolyn has received special training in Webster technique and has worked with many pregnant patients over her past 6+ years in practice. The Webster Technique is a chiropractic adjustment suited particularly well for pregnant moms in preparation for a balanced birth. Pregnant moms have a great advantage working with chiropractic and the Webster Technique. Beginning early provides the greatest benefit, however it’s never too late to achieve positive results!
The Webster Technique alleviates structural strains so the mother and baby can achieve optimal positioning prior to birth. Among the many factors that go into a healthy pregnancy and birth, the Webster Technique covers two essentials: 1) Improved uterine spacing, ligament function, and pelvic balance. 2) A healthy nervous system to mediate normal physiology.
A common success story with chiropractic care is the experience of an easier, safer birth. With pelvic alignment and ideal fetal positioning, birth can happen as it was designed to—free of interference. This is the safest way to give birth for the baby. A common belief is that chiropractors can turn a baby from their breech position. However, this notion betrays an essential component of how chiropractic works. Chiropractors do not “turn breech babies.” They open up the space and align the body so the baby can find the position that’s most ideal for his or her birth. This is often head down, occiput anterior, but not always.
Infant and pediatric chiropractic care
Being born is tough work for both mothers and babies with a lot of pressures and forces being exerted onto mommy and baby during their journey into the world. Birth in its many different forms can be quite traumatic. While each birth is unique, there is always a chance that the baby suffers some sort of strain due to a variety of reasons. Even the most natural births can result in trauma that goes undetected.
Chiropractors who care for infants use very specific, gentle adjustments, and Dr. Carolyn has taken advanced classes on specific techniques for infants. Adjusting of infants and young children employs no popping, cracking or crunching. Instead, pressure is applied to a specific vertebra with about the same amount of force used to check a tomato’s ripeness. Although all infants can be checked right after birth, here are just three clear indicators that your child may need to be assessed: 1. their head tilts to one side, even after you straighten it; 2. they seem to have difficulty turning their neck to one side; 3. they have difficulty settling down or sleeping soundly.
With chiropractic, we not only assure the ideal conditions for birth, we make sure the child is set up for the best possible start to a healthy development.
