More and more women are turning to chiropractic care during pregnancy and are seeing wonderful benefits from it! Most commonly women are referred to chiropractic from their birth care provider for the relief of low back pain. Chiropractic care is safe and effective as a treatment during pregnancy. Additional benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy include a safer and easier birth for both the mother and child.
The American Pregnancy Association talks about the many benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy. http://americanpregnancy.org/pregnancyhealth/chiropracticcare.html
At Abundant Life Chiropractic, Drs. Angie and Damian will analyze the mother's spine and provide gentle adjustments to the affected areas.
Many moms who have had previous pregnancies without chiropractic care have proclaimed how much easier their pregnancies with chiropractic care were and wish they had known about it sooner.
Many birth attendants-including obstetricians and midwives- refer their patients to chiropractors because of the safe and effective treatment for moms for low back pain and other conditions. In fact, Dr. Angie Artho has had the priviledge and honor of treating many obstetricians, midwives, nurses, and fellow chiropractors during their own pregnancies.
Dr. Angie Artho, D.C. has received numerous hours of post graduate training in the care of the mother's changing spine and conditions related to pregnancy. She used chiropractic care for herself during all four of her pregnancies too!
