Knewtson Health Group
Pre-Natal, Infant and Child Care
Chiropractic care isn't just for adults. In fact, many of the spinal problems seen in adults began in childhood or even as early as birth. There is now evidence that points to stress during the birth process that can effect an infant's developing spine and nervous system. The small misalignments resulting from birth can lead to conditions like colic, torticollis, nursing difficulties, and poor sleep. Even allergic reactions, breathing problems, and chonic infections like ear infections have been linked to nervous system stress.
For children and toddlers, chiropractic care can help manage the small and large traumas that come with learning to walk, play, and sports. As spine and joint experts, our chiropractors can also screen for growth conditions like scoliosis, Osgood Schlatters, and hip dysplasia. Come check out our Kid's Club and schedule a consultation with Dr. Kelly or Dr. Sarah to discover how chiropractic can improve your family's health and wellness.

This can create more space for your baby and promote proper fetal positioning prior to birth.
Besides chiropractic care, we offer prenatal/pregnancy massage therapy. Pregnancy massage focuses on not only treating common areas of discomfort throughout your pregnancy, but uses specialized pillows to ensure that all expecting mothers are completely comfortable and relaxed. Massage during pregnancy has the dual benefit of relieving pregnancy-related aches and pains, as well as reduce labor time, enhance the physiological and emotional well-being of both the mother and baby, and decrease stress and anxiety. Prenatal techniques are safe and effective from conception to pre-labor. Our therapists have specialized training to ensure that your pregnancy is comfortable and pain-free.
