Family & Pregnancy

At Stafford Chiropractic Clinic we welcome expectant mothers, babies and children. We are well equipped with toys and changing facilities in addition to having easy access and extra-large changing rooms to accommodate prams and buggies.

 

Pregnancy

During the course of your pregnancy your body will undergo new stresses and changes. Chiropractic care is a safe and gentle way to alleviate pains associated with your pregnancy.

Chiropractic care during and after pregnancy can help balance the movement and alignment of the spine and pelvis, helping to alleviate pain and make mum more comfortable. By maintaining a balanced pelvis this may also allow baby the most room to move and settle into the best position ready for birth. Many women report a more comfortable pregnancy and birth following chiropractic care.

Expectant mums can have chiropractic care at all stages of pregnancy. We are well equipped to treat you comfortably even if you are in the latter stages of pregnancy.

Expectant mums have found relief from the following conditions from chiropractic care:

  • Neck and back pain
  • Pelvic pain
  • Leg pain and pins and needles
  • Pubic symphysis dysfunction
  • Webster technique to relieve any inter-uterine constraint.

Following the birth of your baby your body may go through a “fourth trimester”. Your body is still undergoing many changes following birth which can lead to increase stress on the spine and pelvis– particularly looking after your new arrival. Chiropractic care can be just as important during this time to help your body recover and gradually transition to its pre-pregnancy state.

Paediatrics

We love having families in the clinic and provide safe and effective paediatric chiropractic treatment for children of all ages, from days old to teens.

Our Chiropractors are specialised and experienced at treating babies and have completed post graduate training courses in this field.

During childbirth extensive pressure is often placed on a baby’s spine; this is more prominent during a difficult delivery including forceps, ventouse and caesarean. Chiropractic uses very gentle spinal and cranio-sacral techniques to improve the function of the spine, nervous and cranial system. The pressure used during treatment is extremely light – it is gentle, relaxing and babies often love having treatment!

Many mums report positive changes in their babies following Chiropractic treatment. As babies spines are so supple we often find they respond to care much faster than adults.

A healthy spine is vital to a child’s development. Having their spine checked as they grow may alleviate problems later in life and keep them standing tall. Our goal is to help you achieve pure health.
