Pediatric & Prenatal Chiropractic in Clive, Iowa

Pediatric Care

Pediatric chiropractic adjustments are gentle, noninvasive, safe, and are a holistic approach to supporting your child through life’s milestones and transitions. The birthing process creates a lot of stress on the infant’s nervous system from their first breath. Addressing these misalignments allow the nervous system to function and adapt to the environment inside us, as well as around us.

Right now, sadly well over 50% of our children have at least one diagnosed chronic illness, and 1 in 6 struggle with mental health. And these studies were done before 2020 and all of that added stress and anxiousness our kids face (and their parents) have added on here recently. We focus on the science of what causes kids to get sick, and what exactly needs to be done to restore their health and keep them there.

Prenatal Care

Chiropractic care is essential for moms starting in preconception, throughout pregnancy, and continuing into postpartum. Beginning before conception even starts allows us to support you in lifestyle enhancements, nervous system adaptability through removal of nerve interference, and promoting optimal function.

Throughout pregnancy, your body is constantly adapting to accommodate for a growing baby. This puts additional stress on your pelvis, ligaments, and muscles, which puts strain and torsion within the uterus, resulting in lack of ability for baby to move freely and get into the best possible position for birth. Pregnancy also brings more than just discomfort and misalignment, it brings stress, anxiety, worry, and fear. Our goal is to help empower you during this time and allow you to feel the best you can. Remember: mom’s nervous system is what supplies the baby's nervous system!
