In my experience as a doctor of chiropractic, I’ve come to realize that many expecting mothers are unaware of the benefits of chiropractic care can offer throughout their pregnancy. Ask any pregnant women, and they will agree that their body is changing dramatically in a relative short amount of time. Not only are they carrying extra weight from the baby, but they are producing specific hormones that changes the anatomy of their muscles and ligaments throughout their body.
The most common ailments we see from pregnant mother is back pain and pubic bone pain often starting in early of the second trimester. Both of these conditions can be treated safely and effectively by chiropractic, just check out this 2015 paper highlighting this fact.
Establishing pelvic balance and alignment is another reason to obtain chiropractic care during pregnancy. When the pelvis is misaligned it may reduce the amount of room available for the developing baby. This restriction is called intrauterine constraint. A misaligned pelvis may also make it difficult for the baby to get into the best possible position for delivery.
Receiving chiropractic adjustments during your pregnancy can help ensure that the expectant mother’s pelvic bones are properly aligned, facilitating a quicker, easier delivery. In another study, women receiving chiropractic care through their first pregnancy had 31% shorter labor times and 24% fewer cesarean deliveries than the group not receiving chiropractic care.
We use a combination of gentle, safe methods and specialized equipment to help make the adjustment process easy and painless. We may also provide you with exercises and stretches that are safe to use during pregnancy and compliment any adjustments made to your spine. We typically see pregnant women as earlier as the first trimester and right up to delivery – it is never too late to get started!

What Our Patients say
We love both Kara and Justin and love that we get a husband /wife team here! My husband can be adjusted by Justin. And each adjustment feels tailored to exactly what you need that day! My 3 year old asks for Dr. Kara by name if she wakes up with a crick in her neck!
Justin is the best in the biz. I went in not even barely able to move my neck. In just a couple visits he had me set right again. I recommend him to everyone I know. His staff is amazing and friendly. Couldn't ask for a better place.
I never knew what to expect seeing a chiropractor. Kara and the team make me feel welcomed every time I walk through the door. They are experienced, professional with a side of friendliness. I always feel 100 percent better on my way out. They have taught me how to maintain in between sessions. I would highly recommend!
