Pregnancy and Pediatric Chiropractic in Albuquerque

Newborn babyNatural Help for Mom and Baby

Did you know that chiropractic offers one of the best ways to keep your body healthy during pregnancy? That’s because your spine changes along with the various transformations your body undergoes. Chiropractic care helps to transmit neurological information to your baby which helps to promote a safe birth.

Chiropractic also can help you be more comfortable during pregnancy. Many pregnant women are plagued with back pain and sciatica. By being under chiropractic care as early in your pregnancy as possible, you can avoid discomfort.

Safe, Comfortable Adjustments

Dr. Uphold uses the Webster Technique, which is specially designed for pregnant women. This technique helps to reposition the pelvis so you can prevent entrapments or a breech position. Rest assured that we never use forceful adjustments on pregnant women.

Giving Kids the Best Start Possible

Even if you have a natural birth, your baby can experience considerable trauma from the birthing process. In fact, up to about 90 pounds of pressure is put on the neck as a baby is twisted and turned coming out of the womb. Trauma or upper cervical irritation also can occur from a C-section or the use of forceps.

After birth, babies are sometimes held improperly, causing their head to flop around. Other sources of trauma include falls or hitting their head on tables or the floor. It’s the first two years of life when the most distress can occur.

We believe that children have lots of emotional, physical, mental and social ability but are missing out on a lot of it because they’re subluxated from an early age. With a rise in childhood sicknesses like allergies, asthma, ear infections, ADHD, and sensory processing disorders, it’s critical to get your child’s nervous system checked as soon as possible.

Pediatric Chiropractor Dr. Uphold uses gentle, modified techniques on infants. The amount of pressure employed is that of checking a tomato for ripeness or dimpling a grape. An adjustment using a craniosacral technique can allow the flow of cerebrospinal fluid so your child’s nervous system can be as healthy as possible. As children grow up, Dr. Uphold will modify various techniques to the stages of life they’re going through.
