Paediatric Chiropractic in Wellington

Our Total Health Chiropractic doctors love helping new babies get off to an excellent start in life, and love helping mums feel better after the stress of giving birth.

Chiropractic Care for Babies

The birth process, even if it’s a natural birth with no interventions, can put a lot of stress on a baby’s delicate structures. This strain on the spine can lead to tension and interference in the nervous system. Since the nervous system controls everything in the body, removing nervous system irritation can allow your baby to be more at ease and function with less stress.

Our adjusting techniques for babies are different from what we use for adults. We provide a very gentle adjustment through light touch and hold techniques that are comfortable even for newborns. These allow the baby’s spine and cranial system to relax, releasing pressure on the nervous system.

Postpartum Care

The strain of carrying a baby for nine months puts a lot of stress on the nervous system, and the process of labour and delivery compounds that stress. We suggest getting chiropractic care as soon after giving birth as you feel ready. Our gentle adjustments can restore normal mobility and allow your body and nervous system to relax. When your nervous system works optimally, your body can adapt more effectively and heal itself.

Providing this kind of support and care for your body helps your structures move beyond the stress and strain of labour more effortlessly, allowing you to focus your attention on your new baby.

Getting Back into Balance

For both Mum and Baby, chiropractic care is an effective, natural way to help the body return to balance after all the trauma of birth. Our approach is gentle, and we enjoy giving growing families the care and support they need to thrive.
