** NEW PREGNANCY & PAEDIATRIC DROP IN CLINIC **
We fully believe that every child has the right to a stress free birth – the best start to life! Chiropractic care offers non invasive & drug free benefits for expecting mother before, during & after the many changes of pregnancy.
PREGNANCY & CHIROPRACTIC CARE
Pregnancy is a special and unique time in your life and you and your unborn baby deserve the very best health care. Pregnancy also brings a range of physical changes to your body. As your baby grows, your spine and pelvis can become imbalanced which means your body may face new challenges which can affect development and birth. Ensuring that your body is aligned and functioning at its very best, gives you the best chance to adapt to those changes so that you can have a healthy and enjoyable pregnancy.
Can Chiropractic Care help?
Yes! Regular, gentle chiropractic adjustments while pregnant help restore your body’s natural alignment and communication systems (the nervous system) and are a great way to relieve the added stress on your spine while maintaining your pelvic balance.
Whats even better is that these adjustments mean your nervous system now has the ability to communicate clearly with all parts of your body; all the cells, tissues, muscles and organs that are connecting you and your growing baby. By encouraging your body to perform at its very best, your baby has a greater chance of developing optimally.
We have specialist training in prenatal care and offer a range of techniques (including the Webster Technique) to help you have a more comfortable pregnancy. We can also advise and guidance to give mum more confidence & certainty for a healthy pregnancy & delivery.
The Webster Technique
The Webster Technique is a Chiropractic Technique to optimise nerve system function by optimising pelvic position and alignment. This reduces rotation of the uterus and offers greater chance for optimal baby positioning that can lead to a safer, healthier, drug-free birth.

BABIES, KIDS & CHIROPRACTIC CARE
While a child’s spine and body is incredibly flexible, just like adults, their spine undergoes many stresses which can affect the normal function and communication within the body. These stresses may start from the birth. Although it is a normal process, it can be traumatic and stressful to the newborns’ spine and create stress on their nervous system. Sometimes this presents itself as symptoms however, this isn’t always the case and therefore the effects can go undetected for sometime. We recommend getting all babies checked as soon after birth as possible.
Then, as children learn to sit up, crawl and walk they will experience unavoidable jolts, trips and falls, causing more stress to the body. Adding in the modern stress of heavy school bags, the use of games consoles, phones, tablets are contributing more than ever before to poor posture, back pain in children and other health challenges.
After a thorough assessment of your child’s spine, we are trained to perform very specialised and gentle spinal, cranial and visceral adjustments (which are different to those done on adults), removing stress from a child’s spine and body to allow them to heal naturally and develop to their full potential. We strive to make this a fun and enjoyable experience for your child so that they can receive the care that they need. We will explain the treatment process and plan before any adjustments are performed.
Chiropractic can help your child function, develop and be at their best!
