Pediatric & Maternity Chiropractic
WHY DO KIDS NEED CHIROPRACTIC
Toddlers and kids are constantly falling and slipping where a misalignment can present itself. The child may not present any symptoms right away because our body has a great way of adapting to its environment. If a misalignment continues symptoms will eventually pop up and are more noticeable in adulthood, but by that time it has been going on so long it is much harder to fix and other problems can arise. The trauma of birth (especially c-sections and forceps) can also present a misalignment, which if gone unchecked can make you think…’they were just born this way’

WHAT CAN PEDIATRIC CHIROPRACTIC HELP WITH?
Research shows that acupuncture can influence obesity hormones. Treatments decrease ghrelin (hunger-signaling hormone) and increase leptin (metabolism hormone).
DEPRESSION & ANXIETY
Acupuncture showed comparable results to counseling, helping to improve symptoms of depression and anxiety within 3 months. Acupuncture triggers the release of endorphins.

Our Brain Room is where kids thrive! By combining the power of sensory processing techniques used to stimulate and strengthen the brain with specific forms of very gentle chiropractic as needed, we can achieve results that others simply cannot. We use the latest research and have the best knowledge of functional neurology in St. George. Children are made to thrive, and our integrated, multidisciplinary clinic is the best place to get these kids off drugs and back on track with life.
On the childs first visit to the office, your doctor will take the time to assess the childs case, measure their posture, run three different computerized scans on their nervous system (less scans if an infant) and take x-rays showing the misalignment in the neck (kids 5 and below usually don’t need X-rays) and how it aeffects the rest of the body. The first correction is usually given on this first visit.)
Care plans for pediatrics vary depending on the severity of the case. Usually kids adjust easier than adults because they have not had a misalignment for as long. Some cases might involve more visits, blood work and genetic testing which will increase the price..
As my wife’s OB/GYN said when he found out that she was being adjusted by a chiropractor during her pregnancy, “Oh good, chiropractic babies are the easiest to deliver.” Pregnant women can be comfortable and birth doesn’t have to be a traumatic experience. There are only two maternity/pediatric chiropractors in St. George and we have the one that is trained through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association.
WHY DO MOMS NEED MATERNITY CHIROPRACTIC?
When a woman’s body begins to change during pregnancy, pre-existing spinal misalignments have a tendency to get worse. The center of gravity begins to change and the ligaments begin to be altered. A good alignment is crucial during this time of change. A properly aligned spine can make for a much easier delivery for both mom and baby. Complications during delivery and the use of forceps or c-sections is much less common when the mom is aligned
A balanced spine = A balanced birth
