Pregnancy and Pediatric Chiropractic Care in Charlotte
Regular chiropractic checkups with your Charlotte chiropractor, along with other healthy habits, create the best opportunity for a healthy, happy mother and baby.
Dr. GALLAGHER has taken many post-graduate education seminars involving the treatment of children and pregnant women.
Dr. GALLAGHER states "Chiropractic is a good fit for pregnant women for two reasons. First, most of the problems they have are due to the biomechanical or structural changes that occur in the woman's body as the baby develops. These forces impose a great deal of stress on the lumbar spine and pelvis leading to lower back pain and sciatica. Secondly, the pregnant woman often may not want to take medications. Together, this makes chiropractic a perfect fit for the pregnant woman."
Scientific studies evaluating the effects of chiropractic care on children have indicated some very positive findings. A Study in Denmark shows encouraging evidence that infants with colic are helped by chiropractic care, even when more traditional treatments fail. Of 316 babies treated by 73 chiropractors in 50 different clinics, improvement was reported in more than 90% of these children. Children with allergies and asthma often show significant improvement under chiropractic care.
