Pregnancy Chiropractic at
Advantage Chiropractic

At Advantage Chiropractic, we offer health care for all ages, from newborn babies to senior citizens. Dr. Mark is a family chiropractor and often sees multiple generations, including children of all ages and expecting moms.

What’s good for mom is good for baby. Just like eating healthy and staying active, chiropractic care during pregnancy help a mom-to-be and her unborn child. Dr. Mark likes to joke that during pregnancy, you’re getting two adjustments for the price of one.


Interference in the nervous system, or subluxations, affect a mom and her developing baby. Chiropractic care with pregnancy chiropractor Dr. Mark will remove this interference, allowing for you to have a happy, healthy pregnancy.

You can prevent pain, sleep better and enjoy improved digestion with the help of prenatal chiropractic care. There have even been reports of chiropractic helping women to become pregnant, and it’s appropriate during every stage.

At Advantage Chiropractic, we have a comfortable table that allows you to be adjusted during each trimester of your pregnancy. The table features a chest piece that drops down, allowing mothers-to-be to remain comfortable while getting adjusted. One of our patients was pregnant with twins. Dr. Mark saw her full term and she was able to lie in a face-down position on the table throughout her pregnancy.

We’ll discuss your history and perform a thorough examination to create a care plan that’s tailored to your lifestyle. It will allow your body to be as healthy as possible during this critical time of your life.

During pregnancy, many women are seeking natural pain relief as they don’t want to expose their unborn child to medication. Chiropractic is an entirely safe form of health care that effectively relieves pain.

Chiropractic care during pregnancy not only decreases discomfort, it decreases interference to the nervous system. It also helps to improve the function of the pelvic muscles and ligaments, leading to the lessening of the constraint of a woman’s uterus. The result is her unborn child has the best opportunity to develop and to get into the optimal birth position. Dr. Mark has many years of experience helping expectant moms, and employs a variety of safe, gentle and effective techniques, including the Webster Technique, to help benefit both mom and baby.

FAQ

Is chiropractic safe during pregnancy?

Yes! You can come in at any time during pregnancy and even before you become pregnant. We use gentle and effective techniques.

I’m feeling great! Why do I need to come in for care?

You can have a subluxation or interference without having any symptoms. Chiropractic can help keep your body functioning as best as possible, which is particularly vital with a developing child.

How often do I need to come in for care?

We will create a custom-tailored care plan to meet your specific needs. The typical frequency of care ranges from 2-3 times per week to once a month.

I wasn’t under chiropractic care before I became pregnant. Can I start now?

Yes! It’s never too late to start receiving chiropractic care while pregnant. It’s ideal, however, to start visiting us as early in your pregnancy as possible so we can help you maintain wellness throughout your pregnancy.

I don’t like the idea of taking medication while pregnant. Can chiropractic help with colds or headaches?

Absolutely! Common health issues such as colds and headaches respond favorably to chiropractic adjustments. That’s because getting adjusted can boost the immune system significantly.

Can chiropractic help with emotional changes that I’m experiencing during pregnancy?

Yes, it can. As chiropractic care aims to restore nervous system function, subluxations often take place when emotions and hormones are changing. Regular chiropractic care before, during and after pregnancy can help to restore emotional well-being.

After I give birth, should I come in with my newborn for care?

We do recommend that moms and their infants come in to get checked as soon as possible. Getting in the routine of receiving chiropractic care can benefit mothers and their children.
