Chiropractors Can Ease Pregnancy Pains
Infant Colic, Acid Reflux and Many Common
Childhood Illnesses Without Drugs or Surgery

Did you know that chiropractic care is natural and effective pain relief for moms-to-be, babies and children?

Chiropractic treatment offers an alternative to medication or invasive treatments for common childhood issues like colic, ear infections, acid reflux and bed wetting. Children are able to sleep better and fuss less.

Chiropractic care provides relief for many pregnant moms with lower back pain too by easing the pressure in the joints and spine.

Delivery with chiropractic care before birth can greatly ease child birth and make things much easier for both baby and mother. What’s more chiropractors have special techniques which can often  help breached babies to turn for a natural birth.

Chiropractor for Pregnancy Back Pain

The Canadian Chiropractic Association (CCA) reports that more than half of all women in pregnancy will report suffering back pain at some stage during their pregnancy.

Chiropractic Care in pre and postpartum pregnancy aims to:

  • Relieve pain occurring in the back, neck and joints
  • Improve posture and balance
  • Correct pelvic misalignments
  • Reduce labour and delivery time
  • Reduce birth complications
  • Ease symptoms such as nausea

Research shows that pregnant women who received chiropractic care spent less time in labor (from 24 to 39%), required less pain medication and were able to lactate more effectively.

At Coquitlam Family Chiropractic, Dr. Ali Amiri uses gentle spinal adjustments, soft tissue manipulation and specific exercises to improve the function of joints.  Less force is required for chiropractic treatments because the muscles and ligaments can be more relaxed from an increase in hormones during pregnancy.

Selective adjustment positions are also used to enable both comfort and safety for the baby and mother.

Chiropractic Care for Reducing Colic and Acid Reflux in Babies

Colic is when babies that are otherwise healthy experience excessive crying and acid reflux is when constant spit-up and projectile vomiting occurs so much that it can be a health hazard for the infant due to chocking or harsh stomach acids affecting the throat lining.

Babies with ongoing crying, distress and acid reflux symptoms can be seen by a chiropractor to assess any structural abnormalities that are contributing to the conditions.

During the birth process, misalignments of an infant’s spine can occur if the baby’s head has been pulled or rotated, especially when forceps or vacuum is used. The misalignments put extra stress on the infant’s nervous system which can result in a weakened immune system and function.

The chiropractor works to take tension off of the nerves with light fingertip pressure, such as the touch on an eyelid, to provide minute corrections that can promote a healthy spine and strong immune system function.

As a child grows, the chiropractor assists their nervous system to adapt to the many challenges faced, particularly up to 2 years of age when an infant can fall (on average of 700 times and the nervous system doubles in size.)

Babies who begin receiving chiropractic treatment early on in life enjoy better posture and overall health as they grow.

Chiropractor for Children

Chiropractic care can ease pain and discomfort, boost immune system function and improve control of nerve function for children just as it can for adult patients. In fact, The International Chiropractic Association (ICA) reports that 25% of bed-wetting children treated with chiropractic care experienced a reduced the number of incidents by half.

Chiropractic care works to reduce the stress on a child’s nervous system. When the interference is removed and the overall nerve function is improved, the child’s body can then perform at an optimal level of healing itself.

Some symptoms in children that may indicate there is a disruption in the nervous system

  • reoccurring sore throats or colds
  • ear infections
  • low apgar test scores
  • colic
  • tonsillitis
  • bed-wetting
  • infections
  • pains
  • asthma
  • irregular sleeping patterns
  • trouble breastfeeding
  • imbalance in body posture
  • injuries
