Pediatric Chiropractic Care for Bismarck

Your family has a great deal to gain from being under regular chiropractic care. It’s not just about helping common ailments, but allowing your family members to have healthy relationships with each other. You might find you are sleeping better or that your child feels more at ease. You’ll be able to enjoy these beautiful relationships with your children, changing your entire family’s dynamic for the better.

We can start your baby on regular chiropractic checks from shortly after they’re born. Dr. Gossett’s children were all checked after their birth, and they are all happy children who enjoy great health!

Starting Early for Proper Development
Even a natural birthing process can be traumatic for your precious newborn. Dr. Gossett will gently check your baby, making sure that there are no effects from labor and delivery on your child’s heath. We feel it is imperative for all children to be checked by a chiropractor throughout their childhood to ensure that the child’s nervous system and immune system are functioning optimally.

As your child continues to grow, we want to make sure they can develop properly. Birth trauma, improperly carrying your baby and excessive time in seats (car seats, bouncers, bumbos, jumpers, etc.) can cause spinal misalignments. These problems often present themselves as common childhood health complaints that include the ear, nose, throat, digestive issues, sleeping difficulty, and irritability. Learning to walk, repeated bumps and falls, sports, dance, texting and carrying heavy backpacks can all lead to subluxations in children. Through chiropractic care, we can help your child feel great and function optimally so they can enjoy each year as they grow.

Embarking on a Healthy Childhood
We perform noninvasive, state-of-the-art scans with the Insight™ Subluxation Station. These scans help Dr. Gossett determine how best to care for you and your child. As areas of interference are removed, many parents notice a considerable difference in their child’s attention span, sleeping behaviors, reduction in temper tantrums and an improvement in their overall well-being. Through regular adjustments, their brain will begin to feel more organized which allows your child to give a more controlled output. You will also find they are calmer and can concentrate better.

Using the Gentlest Touch
Children receive chiropractic care that is completely different than that of an adult. Our light, gentle adjustments are safe for babies and children. If you have seen us during your pregnancy, we are happy to check your baby after they are born to make sure their spines are in proper alignment.
Your baby deserves to have the healthiest start. Contact our office today to find out how we can help ensure their best future!

Prenatal Chiropractic Care in Bismarck

Prior to conception is the best time to start chiropractic care! By ensuring that the pelvis and spine are in proper alignment and motion, chiropractic care helps to ensure that the developing baby has plenty of room to grow within the womb. Having more room to move enables your baby to place itself in an optimal position for birth. By maintaining this proper alignment and motion throughout pregnancy, chiropractic care can also improve the ability of the expecting mother to have a safe and natural birth process; something that is extremely vital to the health of both mom and baby.

Chiropractic care helps improve your overall wellness, increase your comfort during pregnancy and helps move you towards a safe, natural delivery. Women under chiropractic care had nearly a 25% reduction in the average labor time verses the “generally accepted average labor time.” (With women who had given birth in the past, that number rose to 33%.  If you see us during your pregnancy, we are happy to check your baby after they are born to make sure their spines are in proper alignment.

Your Birthing Resource

Dr. Gossett maintains a network of birthing professionals he can recommend to you. We’ll discuss your birth plan and provide you with resources to gather information about the best birthing plan for you. You may also be seeking other information, such as which prenatal vitamins to take, the limits of exercising and nutritional advice. We’ll help you learn what you can do to make your pregnancy and delivery as easy as possible while sticking to your desired birthing plan.

Corrective Exercises

We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
