Chiropractic care is becoming an important part of birth preparation for many pregnant women. It is important to look at the mother’s and baby’s biomechanics throughout pregnancy.
During this period, her centre of gravity shifts causing postural compensations. Also, instability in her joints, including her spine and pelvis, is created as a result of the ligament laxity necessary for birthing.
The mother’s pelvis has various ligaments attached that support the uterus, and as the baby grows, their role becomes increasingly important. A misaligned pelvis may make it difficult for the baby to get into the best possible position for delivery.
Chiropractic for Children & Teenagers
The Human body undergoes many physical changes during childhood & adolescence.
Birth is the first trauma we experience in life and as Chiropractors we want to assess and remove any barriers that may affect a child’s milestones.
Chiropractors are privileged to help with;
- Enhancing their health & development
- Growing structure
- Injuries caused by sports or even just their falls, bumps and bruises.
- And more…
During adolescence, the body may develop many postural, traumatic and structural changes that carry on to adulthood.
At Body Care Health & Chiropractic we understand that each adolescent’s growth is unique and focus on early detection of these changes.
“Over 55’s chiropractic users were less likely to have been hospitalised, less likely to have used a nursing home, more likely to report better health status, more likely to exercise vigorously, and more likely to be mobile in the community. In addition, they were less likely to use prescription drugs.”
Restoring better spinal function can help improve mobility, vitality, endurance and appetite. Many patients report improvements with arthritic symptoms and other chronic symptoms often associated with the aging process.
The techniques used at Body Care Health & Chiropractic are gentle and modified for maximum comfort and results.
Our Chiropractors have experience working with Veteran Affairs and our clinic is very accessible, having no stairs for easy access.
