PREGNANCY & INFANTS
We take pride in being able to help all of the different populations in our community. The latest research shows that between 50 and 75 percent of women experience lower back pain throughout their pregnancy. Only about 20% seek out care. As we progress through pregnancy, our body undergoes many changes. A change in load distribution can negatively affect the joints in the lumbar spine and pelvis, contributing to lower back pain. This typically begins in the 5th-7th month of pregnancy and can linger for up to 6 months after delivery with no treatment.
A lot of time, parents don't think that chiropractic can be beneficial for infants and children. Treatment for an infant or child is different compared to treatment for adults. For infants, the physician will use light pressure and gentle techniques. Children typically start with tool assisted treatment depending on their age and size and will gradually work up to more hands on adjustments as they grow.

TREATMENTS FOR PREGNANCY & INFANT PATIENTS
We have an individuated approach for all of our patients at each age bracket. Treatment can range from gentle manual adjusting, tool assisted adjusting with the Activator, and rehabilitation. Pregnancy patients treatment styles typically changes throughout each trimester to ensure the safety of both the mom and baby. Pregnancy patients can also develop an increase in swelling during pregnancy that can cause pinching of nerves in areas like the wrists. This can cause carpal tunnel like symptoms.
