Chiropractic during pregnancy can help reduce back pain and pelvic pain
Studies have shown that chiropractic care can help decrease back pain during pregnancy.
Specific chiropractic adjustments where needed can restore joint motion and restore function, enabling the mother to better adapt to the changes in posture and added weight during pregnancy.
How are adjustments during pregnancy different?
Adjustments during pregnancy are more gentle.
Due to the hormone relaxin being released during pregnancy, the joints are more mobile and the surrounding ligaments stretch more easily; therefore, less force is needed in order to restore proper motion to the joint.

Is chiropractic safe during pregnancy?
Chiropractic care during the entire pregnancy is safe for both mom and child. Dr. Natalie has the training to adjust throughout the pregnancy.
