Pre/Post-Natal Care

Did you know chiropractic care during the pre and post-natal period can benefit both mom and baby? Consider all the amazing changes the female body withstands during the course of a pregnancy and the adaptations it makes after baby arrives. Chiropractic works to help balance and optimize both the structural and functional aspects of a healthy pregnancy and birth.  Both of our providers are trained and experienced in working with women during pregnancy and beyond to help ensure healthy and successful transitions into motherhood.

Dr. Kathleen Arnold is one of the only chiropractors in Door and Kewaunee County to be independently licensed by the ICPA (International Chiropractic Pediatric Association) in the Webster’s Technique. This specific method of adjusting helps optimize function of the pelvic region which is vital to any expecting mother. Routine chiropractic adjustments during pregnancy have been shown to decrease labor and delivery time, drastically decrease low back pain and sciatica, and help alleviate numerous other musculoskeletal issues that are common in the prenatal demographic.

Chiropractic care after pregnancy can be incredibly beneficial as well. The amount of stress and strain that the female body withstands during pregnancy can set the stage for issues after baby is born. If problems are not identified and corrected, pain and decreased function can perpetuate. Furthermore, when a woman experiences issues like pain that go unresolved research illustrates that they are more likely to be medicated, less likely to be successful at breastfeeding, and more likely to develop into post-partum depression. Chiropractic uses a drug-free, conservative approach to helping you stay your best for you and your family.

Utilizing safe and effective chiropractic care through all stages of motherhood has been shown to help ensure a healthy pregnancy and birth. We sincerely hope to have the opportunity to be an integral part of your path as your family welcomes a new life into our beautiful community.
