Pregnancy Care

More and more women are discovering the many benefits associated with chiropractic care in pregnancy. The most common complaint where women seek chiropractic care in pregnancy is for low back pain.  84% of patients receiving spinal manipulative therapy reported relief of back pain during pregnancy. There was significantly less likelihood of back labor when spinal manipulative therapy was administered during pregnancy. Other reasons for using chiropractic care during pregnancy are morning sickness, sciatic nerve buttock and leg pain, rib cage discomfort and carpel tunnel syndrome. All of these conditions are structure related. As pregnancy progesses, the developing baby and growing abdomen can cause changes to the pregnant patient's musculoskeletal system that may lead to symptoms. The chiropractor has specific all-natural, drug free, gentle techniques that can correct these musculoskeletal imbalances and neurological disturbances that cause pregnancy to be uncomfortable. Pregnancy trained chiropractors are an important part of the obstetrical team.
