Birth can be a traumatic time for both mother and child, and so at Fraser House Chiropractic Clinic we offer free baby checks following all births. This is an opportunity for parents to ask how chiropractic can help and for the chiropractors to do a short examination. During the examination the baby’s postural and muscular tension is assessed as well as the individual and global movement of the body, spine and neck. We also place a strong emphasis on supportive parental education for example giving advice on feeding postures and techniques.
For more information or to book a free baby check or a free assessment for your child then please contact our receptionists who will be more than happy to help.
Musculoskeletal Problems due to Pregnancy
During pregnancy, a woman’s body undergoes the most radical changes that will occur during her adult life. Joint problems can be particularly difficult to cope with since using most painkillers is not advisable during pregnancy. The first priority is always the safety of the mother and baby, and all chiropractic techniques used are safe for both the pregnant woman and the baby.
Chiropractic treatment may be beneficial for pregnancy related problems such as:
- lower and upper back pain
- cervicogenic headaches
- knee pain
- neck/shoulder aches and stiffness
