Pregnancy Chiropractic (Prenatal Care)

Dr. Jenna, Dr. Dana, and Dr. Amanda have helped hundreds of women during their pregnancies. Their gentle adjusting style and pregnancy-specific adjusting tables allow our prenatal patients to remain comfortable while being adjusted throughout all stages of pregnancy. Pregnancy chiropractic care can help to support mom throughout pregnancy and into postpartum, by helping the body adjust to changes in each trimester and remain in proper biomechanical alignment for the demands of labor and birth.

During pregnancy, the body changes in incredible ways. Organs shift. Ligaments and muscles stretch. And at times, you might find yourself out of proper spinal alignment due to shifting hips and the pelvis preparing for birth. These things can all affect your spine. When your spine is compromised, things might ache, shift or not function exactly as they used to. A lot of times, this brings pain to expectant mothers-low back pain, headaches or neck pain, hip pain, and more.

That’s where we come in.

Natural chiropractic adjustments are designed with you in mind. During a visit, we will assess the alignment of your changing body and provide gentle adjustments that improve overall function.


The Webster Technique

Dr. Jenna, Dr. Amanda, Dr. Dana and Dr. Emily have a special interest in prenatal and postpartum care and are certified in the Webster Technique through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA). Dr. Jenna, Dr. Amanda, Dr. Dana and Dr. Emily have taken advanced prenatal care courses in addition to their chiropractic education in order to provide the expert advice and care you deserve during pregnancy.

Prenatal patientThe Webster Technique, works to establish balance in the pelvis while helping to reduce pain and tension within the surrounding muscles and supporting ligaments. Using this pelvic specific technique can establish a more comfortable pregnancy.

When you’re expecting, another common symptom pregnant women experience, is round ligament pain. The round ligaments support the uterus and connect the uterus to the groin. As baby grows, it can create tightening of the round ligaments, causing pregnant mommas groin and/or pubic pain. By using Webster technique, we can help to ease the effects of these tight ligaments.
