Pediatric and Prenatal Chiropractic at Schmidt Family Chiropractic

As chiropractors, we work with the nervous system and the structure of the body. Since birth and pregnancy can be a huge source of stress and trauma, we emphasize the importance of pediatric and prenatal chiropractic care.

The Benefits of Pediatric Care

Want to know what chiropractic can do for your child? There are plenty of benefits that are often associated with care, such as

  • Asthma/allergies
  • Bed-wetting
  • Behavioral issues
  • Birth trauma
  • Breastfeeding difficulties
  • Colic
  • Digestive issues/constipation
  • Ear infections
  • Failure to thrive
  • Headaches/migraines
  • Hyperactivity
  • Immune challenges
  • Reaching milestones/proper development
  • Sleeping troubles
  • Sports injuries
  • Torticollis

In a child’s first year of life, their nervous system is developing at a rapid pace. So is their spine. It’s important that a chiropractor check them during this time of life, ensuring the right building blocks for health are in place. With care, your child will be better set up to deal with everyday stressors for the rest of their life.

Parents are often nervous that a child is adjusted in the same manner as an adult. Know that we are trained to use an extremely light pressure for babies and children. It’s similar to what you’d use to test the ripeness of an avocado or tomato.

The paperwork for a pediatric visit can be found on our website and completed ahead of time. We can even do part of the child’s consultation over the phone with a parent, then have you come in to do scans and the examination on the child.

Please be sure to bring a blanket, toy or stuffed animal that your child loves. We can pretend to adjust a doll to get them comfortable. Plus, we have toy adjusting tools that look just like the ones our chiropractors use, which children love to play with.

Preparing the Body for Pregnancy

If you are trying to get pregnant, it may be a good idea to work chiropractic into your normal lifestyle routines. Whether or not you have fertility issues, chiropractic ensures you’re at your healthiest before you embark on this new stage of life.

Healthy parents create healthy kids!

Whole Person Care

When you’re pregnant, we want your care to focus on the whole person, making sure you have a proper structure. When you do, you’ll remain comfortable and ensure your body is ready for each new stage of pregnancy with an optimally functioning nervous system. You’ll receive stretches, exercises and nutritional advice that are beneficial alongside your chiropractic care.

Pregnancy is a marathon, but birthing is no easy feat, either. We provide postpartum care to make sure that you heal optimally after you’ve had your baby.
