Prenatal chiropractic care

Dr. Felicia Houk is certified in Webster’s Technique, which optimizes the biomechanics of the pelvis and sacrum. This creates a pregnancy and birth process that is easier for mom and her baby.

There are several stages of pregnancy that chiropractic can help with:
1.
Pre-conception
Chiropractic care can help to promote more regular menstrual cycles, increase uterine function, and promote proper ovulation.
2.
Pregnancy
Chiropractic care during this period will increase mom’s balance, comfort, and flexibility. Patients who use chiropractic during pregnancy also report less morning sickness, heartburn, carpal tunnel, sciatica, and many other symptoms as mom is going through the changes to accommodate her growing baby.
3.
Labor and Delivery
Mothers who receive chiropractic care throughout their whole pregnancy report having easier, shorter deliveries with less interventions.
4.
Post-partum
This is also a time where mother is going through a lot of bodily changes. Hormones are changing, lactation can be hard on mom’s body, and on top of that you are caring through the nights for a newborn. Chiropractic has been shown to be of benefit during the time after
pregnancy to help mom adjust back to her pre-pregnancy state.
