Pregnancy and Pediatric Chiropractic in Halifax
Oxford Chiropractic Inc: Serving Families Since 1999
After 20 years in practise with a focus on families, Dr. Dena continues to be in awe of the magical process of birth. The chiropractic philosophy to remove the obstacles and allow the body to heal and express itself seems to be a natural fit at this time of pregnancy and birth. The Webster Technique, which is an assessment and analysis of the biomechanics and position of the pelvis, is one that has been very successful in optimizing the movement of the pelvic passage so that your little passenger has a smoother journey out into our world. With or without pain or baby positioning issues, a chiropractic assessment may give you a birthing advantage.
Dr. Churchill often incorporates mind-body techniques like nutrition, yoga, Pilates, acupuncture, meditation and life-focused coaching for a whole healing package.
We value the trust you place in us.
It is a powerful decision to entrust a physician health provider with your baby’s well-being. Dr. Churchill’s philosophy is one that she has shared with her own children, and hundreds of babies and children of the practice, as she has watched them grow and unleash their potential. Taking a history she includes questions about colic, breastfeeding difficulties, bowel or sleep problems, details of birth process, ear infections and other signs of immune and nervous system dysfunction. An examination includes basic spinal reflexes, range of motion, posture, head position and spinal palpation. If a spinal adjustment is required to restore motion and enhance nervous system function, it involves a gentle digital pressure over a spinal area, no more pressure than you would put on your eyeball. Adjustments improve the comfort and well-being of newborns, infants, toddlers and children. Not everyone requires treatment, but how do you know unless you have them checked? We are the only species born with an immature nervous system, so it is essential to support it!
Dr. Dena’s pregnancy and pediatric training is through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association and incorporates Webster Technique Certification. She has been training and treating within this association for nearly two decades. To find out more, visit icpa4kids.org
