Prenatal and Pediatric Chiropractor
at Naturally Chiropractic

Naturally Chiropractic proudly offers prenatal and pediatric care to the women and children of Mandarin. Chiropractic care is safe, gentle, and effective in helping expectant mothers cope with pregnancy symptoms as well as in helping babies, young kids, and adolescent children express life to the fullest.

Prenatal Chiropractic

While pregnant, the body releases a hormone called relaxin, which loosens the ligaments of the pelvis, among other areas, in preparation for birth. In addition to the spine and pelvis shifting out of alignment, change in the center of gravity also occurs. For this reason, women often experience conditions such as neck pain, back pain, pelvic pain, and nerve pain, including sciatica, during pregnancy.

Chiropractic care provides natural treatment of these symptoms as expectant mothers prepare for one of the most exciting and strenuous days of their lives.

Dr. Suzi has undergone extensive post-graduate coursework in prenatal chiropractic and is certified in the Webster Technique, a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment for pregnant women that helps the pelvis function optimally during the birthing process.

Not only does this allow the mother to feel more comfortable during labor, but it also promotes optimal fetal positioning for an easier birth.

Pediatric Chiropractic

Chiropractic care is beneficial for children as early as their day of birth. Depending on the comfort of the mother, adjustments can be utilized to correct misalignments in newborns caused by the extremely stressful delivery process. Similarly, chiropractic can serve as a natural approach to resolving common childhood conditions such as ear infections, colic, digestive issues, acid reflux, latching problems, torticollis, asthma, and frequent bed urination.

Dr. Suzi specializes in pediatric chiropractic, becoming interested in helping children while completing college clinicals. She is a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) and is trained in evaluating pediatric spines and correcting misalignments gently and safely.

Wellness is all about the nervous system. In children, trauma can be caused from the birth process itself as well as daily wear and tear on the body. While young and old spines can benefit from chiropractic care, there is a huge difference in the way they are treated.

Dr. Suzi applies only the lightest of pressure, no more than you would put on a ripe peach or tomato, to get the job done. Rest assured, your child is in good hands at Naturally Chiropractic.
