Chiropractic care throughout pregnancy, birth, and childhood can help instill principles for a healthy, wellness-oriented lifestyle early in life.
It is never too soon to begin chiropractic care. Micro traumas to the spine can occur as early as in utero or during the birth process, but chiropractors are trained to work with the body’s ability to adapt and function the way it is designed to. Chiropractic care in pregnancy is vital to the normal physiological function of both the mother and baby in pregnancy and birth.
The principles of Chiropractic should be known and utilized in the growth of the infant and continue as a safeguard throughout life.
