Chiropractic for mums, babies and children
Pregnancy is 9 months of change! Your body must grow and adapt to each stage, and, whether it be first trimester hormone craziness or third trimester stretch your spine and nerve system play a vital role in all functions during your time as a gorgeous mum2be. Your spine needs to be flexible yet stable as baby grows while your nerve system controls and coordinates both the hormonal and structural changes.
Let us help you have the most comfortable, healthy pregnancy possible!
Newborns and kids
While most new parents expect to have limited sleep and that their little ones will cry occasionally, some newborns, especially those who have had stressful births will cry excessively or not sleep at all. Chiropractic provides a gentle way to help these little ones settle and relax. Feeding issues, colic and … are other indicators of stress within the nerve system and all have shown that they respond beautifully to chiropractic care.
Childhood is a time of huge growth and development! The first 3 years are especially important and gaining each milestone of rolling, crawling and then walking and talking is worth celebrating. Having a spine and nerve system free of any interference assists our children to smoothly transition between each developmental phase. Once they are up and moving around there is evidence that a child will fall over 2500 times before they are 5 years old, most of the time a hug will soothe the tears but the impact of those falls may impact their spine and nerve system – regular checkups at the chiropractor helps make sure they don’t carry these falls into adulthood and that their nerve systems are free of any interference.
Chiropractic can help with learning too! The joints of the spine send information to your brain as they move; this is a vital component of movement- learning pathways. So, a healthy spine literally helps your brain learn. This is not new science, since the 1970’s the link between the movement part of the brain and the learning part has been an important in both education and neuroscience research as they have discovered the brain uses motor patterns as the framework for learning.
From newborns to teenage students and beyond a healthy spine and a nerve system free of any interference can help everyone function at their best!
