Many women experience back pain during pregnancy because of the amount of weight that is gained and the amount of changes happening throughout the body.  The changes put stress on the musculoskeletal system.  We take special interest in the care of pregnant woman and care.

Chiropractic care is the 3rd most common treatment sought by pregnant women. 72% of women who seek relief from chiropractors say that they benefited from the chiropractic care.  Chiropractic care is good to practice while pregnant because it is a way to avoid drugs during pregnancy and as well gain insight to nutrition, ergonomics and exercise.  Chiropractic care can also alleviate muscle tension, headaches, rib discomfort, and shoulder problems.  It can also alleviate joint problems.  Protruding abdomen, increased back curve, pelvic changes, postural adaptations are all things that happen when you are pregnant and can misalign the spine. Studies show that back pain during pregnancy may have a relation to back labor.

Chiropractic care can help maintain a healthy pregnancy, control nausea, and prevent a potential C section.
