Having 3 children of her own, Dr. Potts has first hand experience of the benefits of chiropractic care throughout all of her pregnancies. She attributes her 3 drug-free, home births to her regular chiropractic care.

Potential Benefits of Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy Include:

  • Maintaining a healthy pregnancy
  • Reducing the time of labour and delivery
  • Relieving back, neck and joint pain
  • Controlling symptoms of nausea
  • Preventing a possible cesarian section
  • Relieving Constipation
  • Safer Deliveries

The International Chiropractic Pediatric Association recommends women receive chiropractic care throughout pregnancy to establish pelvic balance and optimize the room a baby has for development throughout pregnancy. Optimal baby positioning at the time of birth eliminates the potential for dystocia (difficult labour) and, therefore, results in easier and safer deliveries for both mother and baby.

Dr. Potts is Webster Certified practitioners.

Chiropractic Care for Babies and Children

Most children encounter many physical stresses during the birth process and their growing years. Even the most natural of deliveries can cause misalignments in the baby’s spine and nervous system. Minor falls or sports injuries can also negatively impact a child’s developing spine and nervous system.

The cause of many newborn health complaints such as colic, reflux, breastfeeding difficulties, sleep disturbance, allergic reactions and chronic infections can often be traced to nervous system irritation caused by spinal misalignments. As children develop issues such as difficulties with crawling and walking, bedwetting, difficulty focusing, difficulty sleeping, asthma, hormone imbalances, etc can all indicate nerve system interference.
