Pregnancy & Pediatrics

During pregnancy there are many hormonal changes and chemical reactions occurring both in the mother and the developing baby, as well as bio-mechanical shifts in the spine. These changes are all coordinated through the nervous system. Now more than ever it is important to have a nervous system that responds immediately and accurately to changing requirements in all parts of your body.
Chiropractic care is a safe, gentle way to facilitate a healthy pregnancy and labor.
A body that is balanced and aligned allows the baby a more direct path through the birth canal and can minimize complications. Dr. Patel utilizes Webster’s Technique which helps with aligning the pelvis and sacrum, thus relieving intra-uterine constraint.
Labor can create an incredible amount of stress on the infant and mother.
It is important for both mom and baby to get checked for nerve interference immediately after birth. Chiropractic adjustments help with facilitating proper recovery, healing, and growth. A baby goes through many changes in the early years and thus it is important to get your child’s spine checked regularly in order to promote a healthy, developing spine and nervous system.
Chiropractic care for pregnant mom’s and children offers your family a solid foundation for wellness
Throughout pregnancy, birth, and childhood, the chiropractic lifestyle is a safe and effective choice that provides benefits for your greater health and well-being.
