Arif has developed as a specialist in the chiropractic treatment of pregnant ladies and children since 1999 when he attended a series of seminars by the lauded Carol Phillips, a famous pre-natal chiropractor, Sacro-Occipital Therapist and Doula and one of the world’s best teachers of the Webster Technique. He went on to complete the course to become a Fellow of the International Chiropractic Paediatric Association , which then lead to him becoming a member of the Royal College of Chiropractors Paediatric Faculty.
Over the years he has continued to develop his knowledge, learning from the best in the fields of Sacro-Occipital Technique, advanced Craniopathy for babies, children and adults, paediatric chiropractic and cranial chiropractic (similar to cranial osteopathy). Complementing this he has attended courses on Tempero-Mandibular Joint therapy, particularly Functional Jaw Orthopeadics a specialism in the forefront of orthodontics and works closely with a dentist specializing in this area.
Arif now has a large practice treating many expectant mothers, babies and children, many who travel many miles to receive his specialized experience, knowledge and care. The whole practice can be full of pregnant ladies, prams and small children and the lovely receptionists often multi-task with arms full of babies.
Arif believes in the humanistic approach to pregnancy and birth. The human body has it’s own innate wisdom and the female process of pregnancy and birth are generally healthy and safe. A birth team should create a loving, relaxed, nurturing environment for the birth; this power will help to deliver your baby without fear, feeling in control. To reduce the risk of birth trauma and problems such as crying babies we need to take responsibility for the outcome of birth.
Chiropractic treatment of the pregnant mum, babies and children is centered on a holistic approach, thoroughly examining the spine, pelvis, cranium as well as the muscular and nervous systems.
Chiropractic and cranial treatment of pregnant mums, babies and young children is a specialist field with many gentle and precise techniques for examination and treatment, focusing on correcting abnormal movement patterns, alignment and tension in the cranium, spine, muscles and ligaments. The treatment is gentle, relaxing and enhances the well-being of the patient.
Arif believes that analysis and specific correction to the pregnant female and paediatric spine and cranium is valuable in many cases. He would be very happy to discuss your problem before committing to an initial consultation.
