Happy, healthy, children. It is a pleasure taking care of babies and children at the practice as we love to encourage your little ones to get the very best start in life.
Chiropractic Pregnancy Care has been shown to significantly reduce birthing time in 24% of first-time mums and 39% of experienced mums, Chiropractic is important before, during and after pregnancy.
Chiropractor’s help your body function optimally. The average weight gain in mums-to-be is around 25 to 30 pounds. Ensuring you are functioning optimally means you are in the best shape possible throughout your pregnancy to help you to adapt to all the physical changes that occur. As your baby grows, your spine and pelvis can become imbalanced which means your body may face new health challenges.
The good news is there is an answer! Regular, gentle adjustments while pregnant open up your nervous system to restore your body’s natural balance and are a great way to relieve the added stress on your spine while maintaining your pelvic balance.
Best of all, these adjustments mean your nerve system now has the ability to communicate clearly with your body; all the tissues, muscles and organs that are connecting you and your baby. By encouraging your body to perform at its very best, your baby has a greater chance of developing to their fullest potential.
Absolutely fantastic, they are so friendly, their knowledge on chiropractic and health is never-ending. Their specialist neurological assessments alongside their brilliant understanding for babies, children and pregnant women is excellent. The whole place is wonderful and my family and I love going.Victoria
Chiropractic and Birth
Chiropractic care during pregnancy not only reduces tension in the spine and nerve system but also maintains a state of balance in the pelvis.
Imagine having a natural, peaceful and safe birth that leaves you connected to your own body and your child. This is the kind of birth experience every pregnant mother wants and Chiropractic care can make your ideal birth experience a reality.
Giving birth to your child without the intervention of forceps, caesarean, drugs or vacuum extraction not only means a more rewarding birth experience but also means a healthier nerve system for mother and baby.
Chiropractic care during pregnancy not only reduces stress on your nerve system but also maintains a state of balance in the pelvis so you are ready for an easier and natural birth.
At Dynamic Family Chiropractic, Kelly and Liam are certified in the Webster Technique. The Webster Technique is a Chiropractic technique to optimise nerve system function by optimising pelvic position. This reduces rotation of the uterus and offers greater potential for prime baby positioning that can lead to a safer, drug-free birth.
I’ve been seeing Kelly and Liam for care throughout my pregnancy as its vitally important to me that my body is working as well as it should do to ensure optimal health for my baby. I have loved every appointment, and appreciate all their invaluable experience, insight and advice which has helped make this pregnancy completely stress free, and comfortable – a real joy! I would thoroughly recommend DFC to any woman even thinking about having children at some point in their lives!Mel
Chiropractic Care for Babies and Children
Nothing gives us greater pleasure than caring for babies and children at the practice as we love to encourage your little ones to get the very best start in life.
Like pregnant mums, babies and children need gentle adjustments and Drs Liam and Kelly are trained to put your child at ease, making their care a fun and happy experience for them and you.
Just like you, your child may face health challenges, particularly as they grow and develop. In babies for example although birth is a natural process it can be traumatic. Any stress during birth can create stress on your child’s nerve system. Sometimes this can show itself as symptoms but not always. This is why we recommend getting all babies checked as soon after birth as you can.
This is where Chiropractic care can help. After we have thoroughly checked your baby’s spine, through very gentle adjustments that are different to the adjustments we make in adults, we can work with your baby’s natural ability to heal themselves. The earlier you bring your baby to us, the earlier we see improvement, leading to a healthier, happier baby.
Of course, it’s not just babies who can benefit from Chiropractic care. Increasingly we are seeing more and more parents turn to us for a natural, drug-free option when children develop health challenges.
Nothing is more important to us than the health and wellbeing of your child which is why we use a modified technique that’s healthy and safe for children of all ages. After a thorough assessment of your child’s health, we can make very small adjustments that will restore your child’s body to a natural state of balance.
Chiropractic can help your child function, grow and be at their best fulfilling their potential.
We started coming whilst I was pregnant with our son (he was transverse in the last weeks of pregnancy). We were so impressed and we now love coming as a family together to get adjusted here weekly. Dynamic Family Chiropractic has an inviting, relaxed atmosphere and staff who are knowledgeable, friendly and caring. The level of care is above and beyond expectations and we really enjoy the informative workshops every fortnight.Crystal
