Pregnancy and Paediatric
Chiropractic Care in Ashford

At Family Chiropractic, we love caring for pregnant women as well as children of all ages—from infants to older kids. Chiropractic is completely natural and non-invasive. Here’s a look at the ways that chiropractic may be beneficial to mums-to-be and children.

When that occurs, there’s an easier pathway for delivery to take place. Chiropractic also may help to reduce labour time and alleviate pregnancy-related discomfort such as back pain.

What to expect

Chiropractor Michael Lucas will perform an examination and take a detailed case history. He will never take X-rays. When it’s time to adjust, he only uses a gentle but specific adjustment.

Doing so, we can detect any areas of dysfunction that we might correct. Chiropractic care throughout childhood may be beneficial. If you’re wondering if chiropractic is right for your child, we offer free checks for kids.

What to expect

Michael performs very gentle adjustments. Very little pressure is used to adjust children. If you’re bringing your baby in, it’s helpful if your infant is relaxed and fed first.

Your child also should wear comfortable clothing that makes the exam easier for them. We can examine babies while they’re lying on the mum or dad. Michael also can assess your baby when the child is in your arms.

Your kids can play with the many toys that we have in our clinic. It’s our experience that children typically enjoy their visits.
