Frequently Asked Questions

Is chiropractic safe during pregnancy?

When administered by a licensed Doctor of Chiropractic, chiropractic care is entirely safe during pregnancy. Prenatal and postpartum chiropractic are two of Dr. Jacqueline’s subspecialties, and she has helped many happy mamas find more comfortable, healthier pregnancies. She uses gentle, careful techniques that are proven to be safe for prenatal and postpartum patients.

How can chiropractic help with pregnancy symptoms?

Pregnancy is at once exhilarating and exhausting. It’s a wonderful time, but it comes with some less-than-wonderful side effects like nausea, back pain, muscle pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, headaches - the list goes on! Chiropractic can reduce those symptoms by easing pressure on nerves and minimizing muscular strain and joint pain.

How does chiropractic help position my baby for birth?

To answer this question, we’d like to start by making an important distinction: we do not turn babies. Instead, we help position mom’s body and correct any pelvic imbalances so that the conditions are right for the baby to find the right birth position of their own accord.

Does Dr. The Webster's Technique, used in pregnancy, that address sacral subluxation with the release of the round ligament to help balance the pelvis during pregnancy use other techniques besides chiropractic?

As a family chiropractor, Dr. Jacqueline takes a comprehensive view of the body and how it changes. She knows that good health is the sum of many parts, and to help you enjoy the healthiest possible pregnancy, she uses comforting soft tissue techniques, therapeutic exercise, and offers sound nutrition advice.
