Pre/Postnatal Chiropractic Care

One of the most important times to receive chiropractic adjustments is during pregnancy. With the change in hormones the body, and especially the pelvis, can easily get out of alignment, which in turn can affect the position of the baby in utero. Dr. Jackson has undergone post-docturate specialized training to work with the pregnant mama, ensuring her pelvis and surrounding soft tissue is relaxed and aligned so that the baby has optimal freedom to move and get into a good head down position for labor and delivery. Dr. Jackson uses the Webster Technique during pregnancy that has been effective in turning mal-positioned babies. She will also use Kinesiotape to support the growing belly and the low back which is working overtime to account for the extra weight being carried in front.

Once that baby is born, unfortunately, all those beautiful and special moments of baby-wearing, and breastfeeding can put a lot of stress on our post-natal bodies. Our neck, mid back, and low back can really take a beating during this time. Dr. Jackson treats these complaints by addressing any soft tissue tension with the use of A.R.T. as well as spinal adjustments. Additionally, Dr. Jackson has taken specialized courses to identify and treat Diastasis Recti, a common abdominal muscle issue that can occur after pregnancy.

Active Release Technique (A.R.T.)

ART is a patented, state of the art soft tissue system/movement based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. ART treats conditions that are often a result of overused muscles.

Injury treatment / prevention

To keep the body healthy we need motion. Muscle tightness and an accumulation of scar tissue limit motion and can lead to injuries. Our soft tissue techniques treat and prevent such injuries.

Pre/Postnatal

Pregnancy is beautiful but it can be hard. It is common to have aches and pains during and after pregnancy. We use specialized techniques to address these pains safely and effectively.
