The foundation for an entire family’s health is built during the prenatal period. Our clinical care and empowering support of moms from conception to the postnatal stage is truly exceptional.
Providing comfort and balance throughout pregnancy.
Prenatal (pregnancy) chiropractors are trained to assess moms’ pelvic, sacral, and soft tissue alignment in order to restore correct movement patterns, and allow mom to experience ease in her pregnancy.
Common reasons a pregnant mom will come to our practice are:
- She is experiencing discomfort
- She is concerned about the position of her baby
- She desires to be proactive and prevent possible discomforts that can arise in pregnancy
- She understands the benefits of regular chiropractic care for her overall health and wellbeing
Chiropractic is a holistic approach to health, meaning: we are trained to assess the whole person, not just the area of pain or the symptom. This approach leads us to uncovering the underlying cause or dysfunction that is creating the discomfort.
For the majority of our pregnant patients, the underlying dysfunction relates to compensatory movement patterns in their hips, pelvis, and/or their spine. In other words – a subtle misalignment which changes the way their body moves and creates tension within their body.
The purpose of prenatal chiropractic is to support a mother during a time of major physical and physiological change. Our role as your prenatal chiropractor is to guide your body into optimal balance through gentle adjustments and soft tissue work (restoring balance to supporting muscles, ligaments, and fascia).
Our gentle prenatal chiropractic techniques
Our doctors are certified through the ICPA in Webster Technique for pregnancy, as well as Logan Basic Technique, both low-force and gentle approaches for addressing lumbo-pelvic biomechanics in pregnant patients. We use a special table specifically designed for pregnant patients that allows you to lie on your front without any pressure on your belly or baby.
What to expect
Your first visit
Your first visit to our office will begin with an in-depth conversation with one of our doctors. At the appointment our goal is to understand your personal health history, your current health goals, your pregnancy and birth goals, and your vision for your experience from this point forward in your pregnancy and beyond. We will determine a personalized plan for you, depending on your unique needs.
Your second visit and beyond
Your second visit and beyond will consist of chiropractic adjustments based on your unique needs. Because every person is unique, our care is based on your needs and will always be clearly communicated with you. We want this appointment to be an opportunity for mom to be able to relax and enjoy the benefits of chiropractic care.
