Chiropractic for Pregnancy

You can have relief from low back pain and joint pain - even while pregnant.

Chiropractic care helps, and gentle chiropractic at our office can give you relief and peace-of-mind.

(Scroll down to videos showing you how it works.)  

Dr. Bonnie regularly sees pregnancy chiropractic patients in Carbondale Monday-Tuesday and Friday.  

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.  Dr. Bonnie uses the gentle Activator Method so that you can have a gentler experience while getting relief.

This includes a table that gently lowers you down (video 2 below), with a cushion for your belly.  This creates a wonderful sense of relief on your low back (especially as you are getting bigger) - and allows you to lie face down with comfort.

Dr. Bonnie is trained in Webster Technique, which is the technique famous for allowing the pelvic area to open up so breech babies can turn.  (Yes, babies have turned in our office with these treatments and specific, gentle exercises.)

In "Introduction to Pregnancy Adjusting," Dr. Bonnie explains some of what happens in your body when you are carrying a baby, why it hurts, and why you have so much pressure in your low back and pelvic region.  She also shares how the chiropractic adjustments in our office can help.

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 safely work around those areas. Reach out for a consultation with Dr. Bonnie to know if this treatment is right for you.  

Our office is covered by most insurances, and pregnancy adjustments are typically covered.
