Prenatal Chiropractic

One of the best things you can do is during pregnancy is seek regular prenatal chiropractic care.

At our office, we are highly trained in prenatal chiropractic care. During pregnancy a woman needs to have her body as healthy and strong as it can be to prepare for childbirth.

This restriction is called intrauterine constraint. A misaligned pelvis may also make it difficult for the baby to get into the best possible position for delivery.

How will you feel after your first treatment?

Wondering how you’ll feel after your first few adjustments? Read on:

Research indicates that some patients receiving chiropractic adjustments may experience a mild side effect of some kind (Cagnie, Vinck, Beernaert & Cambier, 2004; Chaibi, Benth, Tuchin & Russell, 2017). Many patients feel the effects of an adjustment right away, while it may take a bit longer for others.
