Prenatal/Postnatal Chiropractic

Chiropractic care during pregnancy has been shown to decrease discomfort, decrease labor time, and improve the overall labor experience. If the joints, ligaments, and muscles of the body are working and moving as they need to move, then the body is able to do its thing during labor and delivery as it was intended to do.
