Care for pre and post-natal women is very specific and specialised; during pregnancy and after birth, the joints, ligaments, muscles and nerves work very differently. I have completed extensive post-graduate training in order to help women with pregnancy and birth-related complaints and challenges. I am a full member of the International Chiropractic Paediatric Association, which recognises the high level of training and expertise required to treat paediatric patients, as well as pre- and post-natal women.
Many women come to see me without actually having pain or a particular problem; they just want to make sure that their bodies are working as well as possible during pregnancy, and in preparation for the birth of their baby. There is extensive research which has
proved that Chiropractic care during pregnancy helps to reduce labour time, reduce the need for intervention, and reduces stress and trauma to both mother and child.
Other women have problems ranging from pelvic and low back pain, to pubic symphysis pain/dysfunction (PSD), and sciatica. I am able to perform the Webster Technique for breech babies.
My treatment for pregnant women is extremely gentle, yet highly effective. The comfort and safety of both mother and baby is my utmost concern during the treatment. I treated my own wife during both her pregnancies, every week!
Chiropractic For Kids
Many babies are brought to me for help with conditions such as colic, sucking and feeding problems, excessive crying and failure to settle. Frequently, babies that are labeled as difficult or unsettled, have a spinal or cranial bone (skull bone) misalignment which, with Chiropractic care, improves the situation dramatically.
The treatment of babies using specialised chiropractic techniques is extremely gentle and perfectly safe. The effects are often astounding! I treated both of my children within the first few hours of them being born.
Older children are brought to me with problems ranging from recurrent ear infections (otitis media), postural misalignments, dyspraxia, and coordination issues.
