Chiropractic for Pregnancy

"You just have to suffer."  

"Welcome to pregnancy." 

"Of course you're in pain, but there is nothing you can do about it." 

Chiropractic care helps.  At the Carbondale office, Dr. Bonnie sees pregnancy chiropractic patients on Monday and Tuesday.  

You can get significant relief after only one or two adjustments!  

What Is Chiropractic Care and How Does It Work?

Chiropractic care is a form of alternative medicine that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal problems, with an emphasis on the spine and joints. Chiropractors use a variety of techniques to treat different health conditions, but most often they use their hands to manipulate the spine.  But this isn't very gentle, so Dr. Bonnie uses the Activator Method so that you can have a more gentle experience while getting relief.

Dr. Bonnie is trained in Webster Technique, which is the technique famous for turning babies who are breech!  (Yes, babies have turned in our office with these treatments and specific, gentle exercises.)

Dr. Bonnie explains what is happening in your body when you are carrying a body.  And why you hurt and have so much pressure in your low back and pelvic region.

What Are the Benefits of Chiropractic Care?

You can get relief with neck pain, headaches, pubic bone pain, back pain, foot pain.  You might even sleep better!

Many women are relieved when they find chiropractic care focused on pregnancy - because it is a safe, non-invasive treatment option. It is also drug-free, which means you can do it!

Is Chiropractic Care Suitable for Every Pregnant Woman?

Chiropractic care is generally considered to be safe for most people, but there are some exceptions. For instance, if you've had spinal surgery in the recent past or have metal implants on your spine, you should let Dr. Bonnie know so she can work around those. Your best bet is to talk to a Dr. Bonnie and get evaluated to know if this treatment is right for you.
