Pregnant Women and Kids
A special case is that of pregnant women. Patients may wonder if
chiropractic care can be administered when a woman is pregnant. The improved functioning of the body is
advantageous for anyone. Because chiropractic care is individualized, the proper adjustments and amount of pressure
are evaluated on a patient to patient basis and are therefore adjusted to any special needs of a patient, including
pregnancy. Pregnant women who receive chiropractic treatments often report that the delivery goes more smoothly.
There are even studies that indicate that chiropractic care can reduce the need for pain medications during the
labor process and may even reduce the total time of the labor.
This discussion has focused mainly on adult and how they
experience and can benefit from chiropractic care, but do the same truths apply to children? Children are typically
smaller and are still going through periods of rapid growth and development so can they benefit from chiropractic
intervention? Indeed, the answer is once again an emphatic yes. Any individual who can benefit from proper
alignment of the spine can benefit from some degree of chiropractic care.
Children may be subject to the same precipitating factors than can
bring adults in for treatment. They may experience the same injuries or other causes of spinal misalignment and can
likewise benefit from chiropractic adjustments.
Because the amount of force applied is already adjusted on a
patient by patient basis, children are treated in the manner that is most suitable to them. The art of chiropractic
care is individualized and transfers well to children. The application of pressure may be lessened, but the
underlying principles are the same.
You may think of other specialt cases where you may think that the
potential for chiropractic care may be questionable. You may wonder if everyone can truly benefit from chiropractic
intervention. Again, the individualized nature of chiropractic treatment makes it all possible. By adjusting every
treatment to the patient, chiropractic care remains as safe and as effective as possible. Anyone can benefit from
correct spinal alignment so anyone who needs help in that area can benefit from chiropractic care.
