Who we help
Health is your greatest wealth
- Growing a healthier family naturally -
In nine short months, every single day brings with it new developments as two little cells become 3 trillion. Your baby's brain & nervous system form, heartbeat begins & the senses awaken, all before the very first breath! Pregnancy & birth are incredible & at times a challenging experience for both mum & baby. As you make important choices you are creating the ideal environment for you & your growing baby.
Chiropractic care ensures that the brain and the body are well connected, so both mum and baby can go through pregnancy with ease. Changes in weight bearing as the baby grows puts increased strain and tension on the mother’s lower back and pelvis. By ensuring the pelvis and spine are stable yet flexible the baby is able to grow and develop in a comfortable environment.
Visiting a chiropractor through out your pregnancy has shown
-By encouraging proper pelvis and spinal function with chiropractic care, research has shown a 24% reduction in labour time for first-time mothers, and 39% reduction for experienced mothers.
-Another study found that patients who incorporated chiropractic adjustments during their pregnancy had a 50% decrease in the need for pain-relief during delivery.
-Chiropractic care has been shown to ease symptoms in up to 85% of pregnant women, decreasing the need for pain-relief medication that may not be ideal for the baby’s health.
-A recent study published in 2016 stated that females under chiropractic care had increased function, control and relaxation of their pelvic floor muscles. This is essential when it comes to a confident and comfortable delivery.
A clear & connected nervous system allows your body to optimize position, grow and connect with the newest member of your family.
- Clear & connected right from the start of life -
During the first few years of life, essential neuro-development changes occur that are crucial to a child’s lifelong growth and development.
Through paediatric chiropractic care, a child has the ability to grow and thrive right from the start.
Through pregnancy and the birth process babies are placed under incredible amounts of stress. Research shows that up to 80% of babies have vertebral subluxation (spinal dysfunction) following natural deliveries affecting the nerves in the upper neck, which may contribute to compromised development and function.
Babies are born with around 100 billion neurons, & a baby's brain grows most rapidly in the first three years of life. Our kids are so curious, the are constantly growing, developing & changing before our very eyes. Every new skill, new movement, new emotional response or new experience are making new connections & building new pathways within their brain & nervous system.
Chiropractic care facilitates proper growth & development creating a
foundation of health for a lifetime.
Many of our families seek care for their kiddos for many reasons such as

- reflux, colic, breastfeeding / latching challenges
- immune and digestive upset
- stress & anxiety
- bedwetting/ bowel challenges
- neurodiversity challenges
Our chiropractors are passionate about working with newborns, babies, toddlers& kids to optimize their growth & development naturally.
- We take care of your nervous system, because it takes care of you -
People often don’t think to look after their spine until there is pain or a problem.
At Native we view chiropractic care as part of a wellness lifestyle much like cleaning your teeth twice per day, drinking plenty of water and getting regular exercise and enough sleep.
Often pain is one of the last symptoms your body will express to communicate that things are not functioning well.
With your nerve system controlling and coordinating everything in your body, an incredible 45% of your nerves are dedicated to controlling and coordinating muscles (motor nerves), another 45% control and coordinate all the functions you don’t think about, such as breathing, heart rate, digestion, immune function and healing (autonomic nerves) leaving only 10% of nerves relaying pain.
Our thorough examination of the spine and nerve system allow us to identify any areas of vertebral subluxation (spinal dysfunction) so you can express your optimal potential & have more for work, family & play
An optimally functioning nervous system is essential to your overall health & vitality
- Symptoms are our body's way to communicate
that something needs to change -
At Native Chiropractic we look at symptoms differently. We think symptoms are GREAT!
They are simply messages from the body trying to communicate that it is not functioning at its best.
We then have a choice. Do we listen to these messages? Ignore them? Suppress them? Or correct the underlying cause of why they are appearing?
Signals your body may not be functioning at its best;
Lower Back Pain
Neck and Shoulder Pain
