Pregnancy

Here at Etio, we love serving women before, during and after their pregnancy. This is because of the intimate relationship between the spine and nervous system! The nervous system controls and coordinates everything in the body, including the development of the growing baby! When the bones in the spine misalign, they reduce the effectiveness and efficiency of the nerves they control. Chiropractors help restore normal function to the nervous system by restoring normal spinal function. When it comes to infertility, chiropractic care addresses the root cause of the issue and restore the body to its naturally functioning state. 

There are three stages in which you want to have an optimally working nervous system. They are:

Pre-Conception

Chiropractic care can help to promote more regular menstrual cycles and restore proper uterine function.

Pregnancy

Chiropractic care can improve mother's balance, pelvis alignment and flexibility. In addition, mothers who recieve chiropractic care during pregnancy report less low back discomfort and relief of pregnancy symptoms such as:

  • Morning Sickness

  • Acid Reflux

  • Digestive Issues

  • Sleep Problems

Labor & Delivery

Mothers who receive chiropractic care throughout their whole pregnancy report less traumatic births and far easier and shorter deliveries. They also report more consistent contractions, which help the baby move  easily through the birth canal.

Dr. Kent continues to participate in postgraduate training in pregnancy and pediatrics through the International Chiropractic Pediatrics Association (ICPA), and is certified in the Webster Technique, a specialized technique for pregnant mothers.

Pediatrics

There is stress and trauma that occur on both mother and baby during the labor and delivery process, especially with medical interventions involved such as vacuum extraction, caesarean sections, and other surgical procedures. In the current healthcare culture, birth trauma is frequently misdiagnosed, and in many cases, completely ignored.

Utilizing neurologically based chiropractic care, many parents have reported improvement or resolution of their children's symptoms associated with:

  • Breastfeeding/Baby's Latch

  • Ear infections

  • Colic

  • Acid reflux

  • Torticolis

  • Bedwetting

  • Respiratory difficulties

  • Asthma

  • Allergies

  • Learning disabilities

  • And many other problems

We love to serve pregnant moms and children!
