Chiropractic during pregnancy

The body changes significantly during pregnancy and this can include the softening of ligaments, weight increase and postural changes, all of which are normal but can often lead to an increase in pressure on joints, including the spine and pelvis.

 

At Orchard Chiropractor & Health Centre, our Chiropractors are trained to work with pregnant women and will use safe, gentle techniques that are suitable for your condition during pregnancy.

Chiropractic care offers a safe and gentle way of relieving discomfort and minimising back pain during your pregnancy.

If you are already receiving care from one of our Chiropractor and find out you are pregnant, please let your Chiropractor on your next visit. Our Chiropractors will need to adapt their treatment plan for you so in order to deliver safe and effective care.

Chiropractic treatment for child

Chiropractic for babies and children

Chiropractic care for babies and children is suitable for children at all stages of development. Our Chiropractors are trained in assessing and treating babies and infants and are happy to answer any questions you may have.

 

The techniques used on babies and infants are delicate, careful and tailored to your child and their individual needs. The treatment used for babies and infants is modified to use a slight pressure with a sustained release called touch and hold technique. Manipulative techniques are not used for babies and infants. 

New appointments will be 1 hour and your Chiropractor will go through a detailed medical history that will include questions about the pregnancy and delivery.
