What We Do
During pregnancy, it is common to experience lower back, pelvic pain and sciatica. These are due to both the hormonal changes causing increased joint laxity and the bodies altered centre of gravity creating pelvic imbalance and instability.
Our gentle and effective chiropractic treatments are pregnancy specific and focus on removing intra-uterine torsion, round ligament pain, pelvic pain and restoring correct pelvic alignment. This holistic approach assists with achieving a natural birth, reducing labour time and improved recovery post birth.
Paediatric Chiropractic care:
Chiropractic care for babies and children is something we at Scope Chiropractic are very passionate about. Dr Claudia Cadona, our qualified paediatric chiropractor, has been working with and treating infants and babies for many years. She uses specific and gentle treatment techniques and provides all parents with honest and practical advice and education. Each consult we strive to ensure all parents understand and feel comfortable with the treatment and advice.
Birth can be traumatic on babies. A baby’s spine is designed to absorb the compression forces present during a natural delivery. Assisted deliveries (forceps, vacuum or caesarean births) can cause traction to the head and neck and may cause damage to the muscles and joints of a baby’s spine. This may cause symptoms such as torticollis, head preference, irritability and breast-feeding difficulties.
