Pregnancy

Chiropractic can be greatly beneficial during pregnancy.  Because pregnant women cannot use standard medical approaches to reduce pain they often do nothing. Chiropractic is a proven and drug free treatment for pain during pregnancy. Just because back pain is common during pregnancy doesn’t mean that you can’t do anything about it.
