Chiropractic for Pregnancy and Babies

Qualified paediatric chiropractors provide care to over 30,000 paediatric patients each week in Australia and 98% of patients found that their child’s condition improved after treatment.

Chiropractors are thoroughly trained in a range of techniques and how to adapt them to modify patient care based on age, presentation and development.

This allows for an active role to be played in the development, motor skills and wellbeing of paediatric patients.

Dr Aidan is a qualified paediatric chiropractor with many years’ experience in assisting unsettled, poor feeding babies and children with:

  • musculoskeletal pain
  • headaches
  • hip issues
  • neonatal reflexes
  • scoliosis
  • healthy spinal function.


Why should you seek out a chiropractor for your children?

Children are not just small adults and should not be treated as such. Dr Aidan utilises a range of very gentle mobilisations and adjustments with appropriate levels of pressure for the child on the basis of age, body type and development. During the adjustment process, each step will be openly discussed with the parent to ensure understanding of the need, efficacy and safety of chiropractic care for our children.

A child’s position during pregnancy and labour can affect the ease of birth as well as their spinal development as they grow beyond birth.  If the infant is in a suboptimal foetal position, or experiences a difficult birth, spinal dysfunctions may develop as a result. A poorly mobile or functioning spine may affect your child’s development.

Chiropractic care can be beneficial as your child ages and experiences stresses such as playground bumps and falls, heavy backpacks, youth sports, long term sitting and poor posture.


Why should you see a chiropractor while pregnant?

During pregnancy the body goes through many changes which puts more strain on your muscles, ligaments, joints and spine and as a result many women experience back pain. This can be very uncomfortable and stressful for some women and if left untreated may cause long term musculoskeletal issues.

Working with health professionals such as chiropractors during your pregnancy can help to improve posture and pain free mobility. By utilising a range of safe and appropriate techniques, your chiropractor can assist you to improve mobility, relieve chronic pain and stiffness and possibly reduce back pain and discomfort during labour.
