Pediatrics & Pregnancy

Dr. Ginette loves working with moms, babies, and children. Here is a summary of how Chiropractic can be beneficial during these critical life stages:

Pregnancy

During pregnancy, Chiropractic care is safe – and beneficial. Dr. Ginette is trained and certified in the Webster Technique, which is a type of adjustment that encourages pelvic alignment and nerve system function. Chiropractic care during pregnancy can result in a shorter labour because there is less tension on the pelvic muscles, joints, and nerves, which enhances the baby’s mobility in utero and positions them properly for delivery.

Dr. Ginette takes a gentle and extremely safe approach when adjusting pregnant women, and will alter her treatment techniques to maximize comfort and suit your growing body.

Taking your baby to a Chiropractor soon after birth is a wonderful way to ensure they start life on the best possible foot.

Farther down the road, Chiropractic can help resolve symptoms associated with common childhood conditions such as colic, ear infections, asthma, allergies, and headaches – just to name a few. It can also correct small problems that result from all the tumbles and falls of childhood before they have a chance become a larger problem.

Not all children will need ongoing Chiropractic care, but they should be checked to make sure their spine and nervous system are functioning well.

Dr. Ginette has a post-doctoral certification with the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association and has lots of experience treating children. She modifies her techniques based on the child’s size and condition, and may use special instruments as part of her gentle and extremely safe approach. Often, babies can be adjusted without waking them!

Pediatrics

We love helping our patients live their best life and they are excited to share their experiences with others. See what some of our patients have to say.

Coralie had a healthy pregnancy with less back pain

During my third trimester of my third pregnancy, I was having lower back and hip pain that radiated down my leg and into my groin. At times I could barely walk as one of my legs would hurt badly when I tried to lift it and move forward. I also had a shoulder pain that radiated down the side of my arm.

After starting care with Dr. Ginette, my shoulder pain is gone. My hip and back pain improved greatly for the remainder of my healthy pregnancy. Just walking, bending and getting around is a lot easier now. My family life has improved as a result since I can keep up with my young boys and newborn without pain.

Dr. Ginette St. Pierre is very thorough. She takes the time to explain everything and goes above and beyond to offer advice and tips on how I can help improve my health in my daily life. I would recommend her to anyone suffering from a chronic pain issue.

Polina’s “growing pains” and headaches resolved with care

My mom brought me to see Dr. Ginette because I was having headaches and my legs would hurt at night, like ‘growing pains’. I couldn’t sleep and my mom would try to rub my legs. Since being under care with Dr. Ginette, I don’t have any more growing pains in my legs and my headaches are rare now. After being adjusted, “I feel like I can fly, I feel better”.
