Pregnancy and Pediatric Chiropractic Care

Caring For Your Family Like Our Family

Family wellness is extremely critical to Dr. Brad. Starting kids off healthy from their first breath, and even before birth, sets them up for better lives as adults.

He hopes to remove interference so they can heal properly and not suffer permanent, lifelong changes to their health. As a child, Dr. Brad suffered from chronic ear infections that left him with permanent hearing loss. Through chiropractic, he hopes he can help children avoid long-term injury.

Pregnancy Care

Dr. Brad encourages women to receive chiropractic care during their pregnancies. Chiropractic can help ease symptoms of pregnancy while creating optimal conditions for an easier labor and birth. Adjustments during pregnancy can decrease labor time by as much as 25 percent for first-time mothers and up to 40 percent for mothers of multiple children.

As the body changes during pregnancy, so do an expectant mother’s needs. Dr. Brad will make your adjustments as easy and comfortable as possible. Spinal tables with pelvic drops help create additional room for growing abdomens. Special pillows and other tools help release muscle tension and make mom more comfortable.

During training for his ICPA fellowship, Dr. Brad studied the Webster Technique, which helps turn breech babies into proper head-down position for delivery. Other conditions helped by chiropractic include headaches and migraines related to changes in blood flow, carpal tunnel syndrome, rib pain and sciatica or numbness and tingling in the legs.

Pediatric Care

Chiropractic care soon after birth helps relieve problems related to the stress of the birthing process. Mothers can bring their newborns to the office for evaluation soon after birth, or Dr. Brad can visit to perform a check and an adjustment while you are still in the hospital.

In very young children, especially in the case of difficult deliveries, the head may not hold its proper position. Chiropractic can help alleviate this problem, and help a number of other conditions in young children.

Some of the most common conditions Dr. Brad sees in children include:

  • ADHD
  • Allergies
  • Asthma
  • Autism
  • Bed-wetting
  • Colic
  • Ear infections
  • Inability to lie flat on the back
  • Indigestion
  • Scoliosis

Intervention during pregnancy and early childhood can help ease labor and delivery and put kids on the path to a lifetime of good health. Get in touch with our office to learn more about how chiropractic can help!
