PRE/POST NATAL & PEDIATRICS

At Eckert Chiropractic, we specialize in both pre and post-natal treatment.  Dr. Kate has been certified in Webster Technique since 2015 and attended a BirthFIT seminar in the spring of 2018. We offer a multimodal approach to treating common conditions that arise during pregnancy and the postpartum period. 

 

Webser technique is a gentle and specific chiropractic sacral analysis and diversified adjustment commonly used for pregnant women.  It was developed by Larry Webster, DC to balance the pelvis and reduce stress that is on a woman's uterus and ligaments during pregnancy.    It has been clinically proven that establishing balance in the pelvis may allow for optimal fetal positioning.  For more information and research visit International Chiropractic Pediatric Association.

 

Chiropractic care during pregnancy has been shown to decrease labor times, reduce and eliminate back pain, and create balance in the pelvis, allowing the growing baby space to achieve optimal fetal positioning.  Dr. Kate also utilizes trigger point work and Active Release Technique (www.activerelease.com)  to treat the other ailments that crop up during pregnancy as well.

 

Post-natal care is also an important and often overlooked mode of care.  It is critical that we rehab our bodies after the vast changes we undergo during pregnancy and birth.  


 

Chiropractic care for babies and children look much different than care for adults.  Dr. Kate has taken additional training in pediatric seminars from the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association.  She recently completed a seminar on cranial work that is useful for lip and tongue tie (both pre and post revision), plagiocephaly, sucking proficiency, among other things.  The best time to get your baby checked, is when milestones are reached:

 

  • After birth

  • Starting to lift head

  • Rolling over

  • Getting on hands and knees

  • Creeping

  • Crawling

  • Walking

 

 Chiropractic for the pediatric population is done through gentle and safe manipulation. The pressure used for an adjustment is no more than that would bruise a tomato and the contact is one finger pad. This treatment encourages positive brain and nerve development.  Many childhood and pediatric conditions can be effected in a positive way through chiropractic care and exercises.

 

  • Colic

  • Constipation/diarrhea

  • Ear infections

  • Nursing difficulties

  • Lip and tongue tie post revision

 

Pediatric care continues as your child ages and has growth spurts, starts school (prolonged sitting, heavy backpacks, test stress, etc), sports injuries.
