Care for children and pregnancy

Children

Chiropractic is suitable for babies and children. We use light finger tip pressure which is gentle and causes no pain.  

Pregnant women

Growing a baby is an important job and we offer care for mums wanting to keep the aches and pains at bay caused by carrying the additional weight of a baby.  We have a special pregnancy pillow that helps us treat pregnant patients.
