Chiropractic for Pregnancy
Dr. Philip DiPasquale of Bergen Spine and Wellness specializes in offering chiropractic care for expecting mothers. Over 50% of pregnant women complain of lower back pain during their pregnancy due to the added and disproportional weight gain. Furthermore, a body that is stressed, worn out or misaligned can lead to complications during the delivery process.
Dr. DiPasquale will remove subluxations in pregnant women in order to maintain proper pelvic balance and alignment to ensure a smooth delivery and to alleviate pain during the pregnancy.
Chiropractic for Infants and Children
Spinal issues can start from birth and bring a large amount of stress to an infant’s spine and nervous system leading to long-term issues throughout the entire body. If spinal misalignments are ignored at an early age, the child can develop serious problems later in life.
More and more parents are seeking chiropractic care for their children. Many spinal problems seen in adults can begin as early as birth. Even natural birthing methods can place stress on the infant’s spine and developing nervous system. The resulting irritation to the nervous system can be the cause of many common complaints.
Some of the more prevalent problems that can be helped through chiropractic care of infants and children are as follows:
Dr. DiPasquale will conduct a case history and perform a chiropractic exam to determine if spinal subluxations exist in the child. Chiropractic adjusting procedures are modified to fit a child’s size, weight and unique spinal condition. They are both gentle and specific to the child’s developing spinal structures. Most parents report that their children enjoy their chiropractic adjustments and look forward to subsequent visits. They also report that their children experience a greater level of health while under regular chiropractic care.
