I never thought that I’d be treating so many pregnant women when I graduated as a Doctor in Chiropractic, over ten years ago!!
Having said that, I routinely treat, with much successes, many many pregnant women in the Manassas and Centreville, VA area with back pain and neck pain.
When you are pregnant, the biomechanics of your body simply changes. These changes can lead to increased pressure on the back, legs, knees, and ankles.
And here’s the rub….
YOU CANT TAKE ANY PILLS FOR PAIN WHEN YOU ARE PREGNANT!!
That’s why chiropractic is a really great solution to helping pregnant females with pains.
Yes, chiropractic is SAFE for you and your baby!!
Yes, its covered by insurance, in most cases.
AND YES, it is very effective in treating back and joint pains without dangerous drugs.
The only caveat with pregnant women, is I can’t take any xrays, so we utilize computerized range of motion studies as well as the physical exam to help locate the problem you are having.
We also utilize special positions when adjusting pregnant women, so as not to cause them more pain or problems.
Yours in Health,
