Chiropractors are experts in reducing nervous system interference by keeping the spine properly aligned, and allowing clear messages to travel to and from the brain and throughout the body.
Chiropractic care helps to allow clear messages to travel to and from your reproductive system to enhance your fertility and resolve infertility challenges as well as greatly improve the chances of successful medical procedures such as IVF.
Pregnancy & Birth
Chiropractic care during pregnancy ensures that communication between your brain and body is clear from any obstruction, tension or distortion which allows for ease during your pregnancy as well as during your birth.
Some of the benefits of care during your pregnancy include:
- Controlling symptoms of nausea
- Relieving back, pelvic, pubic bone, neck or joint pain (84% of women found beneficial)
- Easier labour experience and shorter labour times (up to 40%)
- Reduction in the need for analgesics (50% reduction)
- Providing an environment conducive to a head down, ideal position for the baby
If your baby is breech (head up), there is a chiropractic adjustment called The Webster’s Technique that can establish balance in your pelvis and reduce the stress in your uterus and supporting ligaments. This balanced state has been clinically shown to allow babies who were breech to turn into a head down position. This Webster Technique has been shown to be 82% effective.
Infants and Children
In infants, the nervous system controls growth and development which is the optimal time to take care of it. When adjusting your newborn, your chiropractor will only use pressure equal to that which you would be comfortable using while pressing on your eye. The child is adjusted by hand and/or an adjustive device while either lying on a pillow or on you! It is simple, safe and effective – and is often done while sleeping – it is that gentle!
Some children’s conditions that improve through chiropractic care include:
- Ear infections
- Bed wetting
