We understand it can be scary as a pregnant woman to even think about getting adjusted by a chiropractor. Our doctors want to assure you this is a safe, effective way to help you with the common pains and discomfort while bearing a child. All of the Texoma Wellness Chiropractors have been properly trained in adjusting pregnant woman and recommend you stay on a maintenance plan while pregnant! There have been studies shown that women who receive chiropractic adjustments may have a shorter labor time. Chiropractic may also help turn breech babies around before birth.

Besides just adjustments, we offer Rocktaping for pregnant women. This helps reduce the load being beared on the low back by helping lift the belly with tape. They can also tape to decrease the associated low back pain. Massage Therapy is also a great way to decrease tension and stress put on the back muscles during pregnancy.

Child Care

Patients often say they didn’t know we could adjust babies or ask why would a baby need an adjustment? The forces that are exerted on a baby during birth are incredible. Babies have to twist and turn, sometimes need extra force from the doctor during birth, and this can really misalign the newborn's spine. A very common issue seen in newborn infants is subluxations through the cervical (neck) spine from the stress of birth. With these subluxations, we see nonstop crying, babies who won't sleep, only finding comfort when being held a certain way, etc. A simple adjustment to the baby often times will help diminish or even resolve these problems.

Another BIG issue chiropractic adjustments may help with is a colicing baby. The general public is becoming more aware about how amazing chiropractic can be for improving a baby's digestive system. If your baby is not eating, always crying and restless, please don't hesitate to see our doctors. We have seen miraculous results in babies who have been suffering from colic for months. And as you can imagine, the parents find major relief as well. As we stated above, all of our Chiropractors are highly trained in this area and love to see babies in the clinic!

Chiropractic can also help with: latching, babies with difficulty walking and crawling, allergies, ear infections, digestion issues, and more.
