Pregnancy and prenatal

Safe and natural chiropractic care can be a wonderful source of relief and well-being for the pregnant woman.

A woman may be a candidate for chiropractic care if:

1 She is at any stage in pregnancy – from early to late.
2 She has any of the common complaints of pregnancy such as: headache, mid-back pain, anterior rib pain, difficulty taking a deep breath, low back pain, sciatica, buttock pain, knee pain, swollen ankles, morning sickness, indigestion, constipation, elevated blood pressure, blood sugar regulation dysfunction, fatigue and fetal mal-position.
3 Wants to optimize her likelihood of a natural birth.

Chiropractic care while pregnant:

1 Chiropractic rendered by a properly trained chiropractic physician is safe and comfortable for you and your baby.
2 Chiropractic does not hurt. Many report relief after the first visit.
3 The chiropractor will not x-ray you while you are pregnant.
4 You will receive a complete history, consultation and examination. The exam emphasizes the low back and pelvis including the ligaments which suspend the uterus in the pelvis.
5 Adjustments, which often have the amount of pressure you would use to test the ripeness of a tomato, gently and specifically correct misalignments.
6 You will receive a Report of Findings to learn about your condition and what chiropractic care can do to help create the pregnancy, labor and birth you desire.
7 During your Report of Findings, the doctor can also explain how your baby can start life and develop even healthier with gentle chiropractic care.
