A Natural Solution to Pregnancy and Pediatric
Our Approach to Pregnancy and Pediatric Chiropractic Care
At Rooted Living Wellness, we recognize that every pregnancy and every child has different needs. As your baby grows, your body must adapt to its precious passenger. We believe chiropractic care gives you the chance to develop with your child by allowing the body to perform freely.
We believe that every person is the architect of their own health. The power is in you. That’s why we focus on caring for the body as a whole. By relaxing you and balancing your body, we’ll prepare you for a safe birth while making the prenatal experience as enjoyable as possible. Birth is a magical experience; let’s make it problem-free!
What are the Benefits of Pregnancy Chiropractic Care?
A pregnancy chiropractor can provide a variety of benefits for prenatal mothers, including:
Pregnancy Chiropractors work to create balance in the body. By focusing on the mother’s spine, they ensure the nervous system is functioning optimally. This is critical in securing the baby in the best possible environment and so the mother can avoid pains and complications.
Preparation for Birth and Pelvic Stability
Pregnancy chiropractors use a unique technique known as the Webster Technique. It was specifically designed to realign the pelvis and reduce stress in pregnant women. During pregnancy, the pelvis loosens and shifts. If the pelvis is misaligned, ligaments can get twisted. This can limit the space available for the baby and cause complications during birth.
Pregnancy Chiropractic care focuses on balancing and aligning the pelvis to better align the system to process and deal with everyday life challenges while pregnant.
A pregnancy chiropractor will help you and your muscles cope during the rapid changes that evolve during pregnancy. Pregnancy chiropractors often work on the back and other core muscles to ensure you’re body is strong to hold up to the day-to-day strain of developing a baby.
Pains are a natural part of being pregnant. The muscles are constantly working hard to support the weight of the developing baby. Back pain, neck pain and joint pain can be relieved through safe chiropractic adjustments and massage therapy.
When you’re pregnant, being able to relax is a huge blessing and helps with your sleeping habits and mental health. Our pregnancy massage therapy treatment does wonders for relaxing the body and mind. Through a variety of different techniques, our pregnancy massage therapists will work on your soft tissues to relieve stress and ensure your muscles are in their best condition. We also provide meditation support as part of our brain balance programs.
As the body changes drastically during pregnancy, your movement may become restricted and problematic. Through chiropractic pregnancy care and corrective exercises, we can help you loosen your body for better mobility.
Reduce Headaches and Nausea
Headaches and nausea are common symptoms experienced during pregnancy. Chiropractic care helps find and tackle the root cause of your headaches.
Chiropractic Care from Conception
Many women experience fertility issues before becoming pregnant. One of the causes can be an out of harmony body. Pregnancy chiropractic care aligns the body so hormones flow optimally and so the body is primed for conception. We can also help with nutrition, stress levels and unhealthy habits.
Is Pregnancy Chiropractic Care Safe?
Understandably, you may have concerns about anyone moving your body during pregnancy. To date, there is no evidence against gentle, safe prenatal chiropractic care. Unlike medications, injections or surgery there are no harmful chemicals that will interfere with you or your baby. Instead, pregnancy chiropractors will only use gentle touches to use the body’s powers of healing.
When Should I Visit a Pregnancy Chiropractor?
1st Trimester – Conception to 12 Weeks
Pregnancy chiropractic care during this stage can keep the brain and body in tune, ensuring the magical creation of life starts perfectly.
2nd Trimester – 12 Weeks to 28 Weeks
This is when drastic changes in the body and posture begin. It’s the ideal time to visit a pregnancy chiropractor to make sure your spine and pelvis are aligned so your baby develops in the optimal position.
3rd Trimester – 28 Weeks to 40 Weeks
The brain and body are under massive strain around this time due to weight gain and postural changes. Pregnancy chiropractors will help to avoid breaching and assure your pelvic and spinal structures are coping. This is also a perfect time for massage therapy to relax your mind and body.
Delivery and Post Delivery
Thanks to pregnancy chiropractic care, you should have an uncomplicated and wonderful labor. After the birth, we can help to resolve any issues caused during pregnancy and prepare you for life as a new mother.

Does My Baby Need a Pediatric Chiropractor?
Birth applies a lot of pressure on a baby’s spine and skull. This can lead to spinal misalignment and high skull tension. Pediatric chiropractors work to restore the balance in babies, removing any interference to the nervous system – so they grow correctly without any problems.
We advise regular pediatric chiropractic check-ups for babies to ensure the nervous system development is healthy. Warning signs include falls and bumps or your child “bum-shuffling” rather than crawling. This can be a sign that your child has an imbalance in their little nervous system that we can gently correct so they grow without complications.
Benefits of Pediatric Chiropractic Care for Babies:
- Treat Colic
- Prevent Asthma
- Prevent Ear Infections
- Prevent Digestive Issues
- Help with Latching Difficulties
- Sleeping Issues
- A happier and more peaceful baby, so a happier and more peaceful parent
Pediatric Chiropractor for Teens and Children
As pediatric chiropractors in the 21st century, we know the posture of children has changed dramatically. With so many cell phones, tablets and TVs being used, they’re constantly applying forward head pressure. This can place great strain on the upper back and neck, leading to postural and spinal complications. If your child or teenager is suffering headaches, neck pains or any other complaints then they should visit a pediatric chiropractor for a check-up. Thus they can prevent any complications as they grow into adulthood.
Our pediatric chiropractic treatments are gentle and soothing. Rather than manipulation of the joints, we focus on mobilizing them with far less force than we do with adults. However, just like adults, this can help with all kinds of issues including:
Nearly 30% of children experience sleeping disorders. With the help of a pediatric chiropractor, sleep issues can be helped through relaxing massage therapy and gentle spinal adjustments.
Sports Injuries and Recovery
Any parents with an athletic child will know about injuries. Sadly, they can cause complications that continue into adult life if left untreated. We’ll help your child recover correctly and prevent any ongoing complications.
Headaches and Migraines
Medication is the usual answer most parents give to child headaches. But in reality, 95% of headaches are caused by muscle tension in the back or neck. Pediatric chiropractors can locate and treat the root cause of the headaches to prevent headaches from reoccurring.
Two out of every five children in the U.S. suffer from growing pains. These pains are natural but can disrupt sleep and day-to-day living. We can remove the pressure from the spine to prevent these pains and allow your child to live comfortably.
Pediatric Chiropractors Also Help With:
- Back Pain
- Neck Pain
- Extremity Conditions
- ADD / ADHD
- Allergies or Sinus Issues
- Bed Wetting
- Digestive Issues
- Ear Infections
- Flat Head Syndrome
- Sensory Processing Disorder
- And More
