Wall may be a small town, but it boasts six chiropractors registered with the IPCA within ten miles of the center. Looking for a prenatal chiropractor in Wall? If you need a pediatric chiropractor, Wall township has several. The International Pediatric Chiropractic Association website will tell you where they are.

You may not be aware of chiropractic care for unborn and newborn children. Traditionally, chiropractors have dealt with bad backs and painful hips and knees. Misalignments in joints and the spine can cause all sorts of illnesses. Legend has it that Daniel Palmer, the 19th century founder of chiropractic, cured someone of deafness by massage alone!

That was about 130 years ago, and things have moved on since then. Today's chiropractors deal in a whole range of other areas. There has been a massive expansion in the services they offer to pregnant women and new mothers for example.

Prenatal pediatric treatments

Pregnancy puts a huge strain on a woman's body. The weight of a baby being carried for several months and the softening of ligaments in preparation for the birth can lead to intense pain. Over 50% of pregnant women suffer from this. Chiropractors can adjust posture and realign the spine and hips to ease the loads.

More significantly realignment of the spine can help to create more space for the baby to grow and move into a head-down position for birth. This means fewer medical interventions on delivery day and less stress for Mom and baby. A prenatal chiropractor in Wall means that you do not have to travel far to get the expert help you need.

Larry Webster pioneered these prenatal chiropractic methods in the late twentieth Century. Ask your chiropractor about Webster's Pregnancy Techniques - these ensure a balanced pelvis to support the uterus. This results in fewer problems before and after delivery. A calmer baby and a more relaxed Mother make for easier feeding and better sleeping.

Pediatric treatments

Small children have soft bones and ligaments - it is the ideal time to make sure that everything is where it should be. Unfortunately, kids also have a habit of breaking things - often themselves!

In recent years, there has been some evidence that chiropractors may be able to help stop colic in children. They can certainly ease the symptoms of this difficult condition. There have also been trials showing some success with Attention Deficit/Hyperactive Disorder. Spinal manipulation has been shown to reduce the effects of ADHD in a small number of cases. It is certainly worth investigating and, if you need a pediatric chiropractor Wall Township is well served.

Are there any dangers associated with prenatal and pediatric chiropractic care?

You should always get the recommendation of a medical doctor before going to a chiropractor. This is particularly true where unborn and young children are concerned. Always look for a specialist chiropractor in these areas, and one who is registered with the IPCA.

In the past, there have been scares about chiropractic care and pregnancy. These days, practitioners are much more aware of the warning signs of preeclampsia for example. They always work more closely with traditional medical staff to ensure the health of Mother and child.
