Care for pre and post-natal women is very specific and specialized; during pregnancy and after birth, the joints, ligaments, muscles and nerves work very differently. I have completed extensive post-graduate training in order to help women with pregnancy and birth-related complaints and challenges.  I am a full member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, which recognises the high level of training and expertise required to treat paediatric patients, as well as pre- and post-natal women..


Many women come to see me without actually having pain or a particular problem; they just want to make sure that their bodies are working as well as possible during pregnancy, and in preparation for the birth of their baby. There is extensive research which has

proved that Chiropractic care during pregnancy helps to reduce labour time, reduce the need for intervention, and reduces stress and trauma to both mother and child.


Other women have problems ranging from pelvic and low back pain, to pubic symphysis pain/dysfunction (PSD), and sciatica. I am able to perform the Webster Technique for breech babies.


My treatment for pregnant women is extremely gentle, yet highly effective. The comfort and safety of both mother and baby is my utmost concern during the treatment. I treated my own wife during both her pregnancies, every week!


Parents bring their babies to me, often just for a check-up. Birth can be a very traumatic experience for the baby, especially when assistance was required from medical staff. I strongly believe that every new born baby should be checked by an experienced Doctor of Chiropractic to ensure their spine and nerve system is working to its optimum.


Many babies are brought to me for help with conditions such as colic,

sucking and feeding problems, excessive crying and failure to settle.

Frequently, babies that are labeled as difficult or unsettled, have a

spinal or cranial bone (skull bone) misalignment which, with

Chiropractic care, improves the situation dramatically.


The treatment of babies using specialized chiropractic techniques is

extremely gentle and perfectly safe. The effects are often astounding!

I treated both of my children within the first few hours of them

being born.


Older children are brought to me with problems ranging from

recurrent ear infections (otitismedia), postural misalignments,

dyspraxia, and coordination issues.
