Is chiropractic safe during pregnancy?

Pregnancy is a true miracle. We take two tiny cells that can hardly be seen with the naked eye and nine months later....a beautiful baby with ten fingers and toes, two lungs, and a million other parts working seemlessly together!

Parents reading this know that a woman's body undergoes a few changes during this process! ;) 

Some of these changes can be unpleaseant, such as sciatic pain, carpal tunnel symptoms (numbness & tingling in the upper extremities), back pain, sleeplessness, among a host of other issues. 

Fortunately, chiropractic is very safe during pregnancy. In fact, we receive referrals constantly from OB/GYN doctors looking for safe and effective relief for their pregnant patients. 

As the pregnancy progresses, the techinques we use may change, but overall they can be very helpful to ease some of the discomforts that can accompany growing a human!
