Pregnancy & Chiropractic
“Chiropractic helped me enjoy my pregnancy to the fullest and helped me have the pregnancy and delivery I had always hoped for! I trust Dr. Mark and Dr. Kristin’s 20+ years of expertise and practice. Both myself and my new son are patients!”
Why Should I Try Chiropractic During My Pregnancy?
Chiropractic is a safe, non-invasive option of pain relief for expectant mothers. Studies have shown that chiropractic is perfectly safe during pregnancy. Chiropractors are specially trained to handle pregnant patients, and you do not need a doctor’s referral. Chiropractors use the technique of gentle adjustments to help realign the spine and hips. This realignment increases flexibility and aligns the hips to encourage proper fetal positioning. Chiropractic has also been known to reduce nausea and reduce the risk of cesarean delivery during labor.

Drs. Mark and Kristin Legnola take great pride in helping expectant mothers enjoy their pregnancy to the fullest. We offer a variety of tools and techniques to address many different aches and pains while still allowing you to feel safe during your adjustment. Through gentle chiropractic care, we can help treat many common pregnancy issues including back pain, carpal tunnel, foot pain, low back/gluteus pain, headaches, hip pain, poor balance, and sciatica.
What Should I Expect at my First Visit?
The comfort and safety of you and your baby are our utmost concern. To ensure we are able to safely treat and address every issue, we start with a comprehensive exam.
After the exam, we use our specialized training and a customized treatment plan to help you feel better than when you arrived at our office! We take special care to accommodate discomfort due to c-sections and engorged breasts. We also have many options to accommodate women toward the end of their pregnancy.
Do You Accept Health Insurance?
Yes! Both of our doctors are in-network providers with many major health insurance plans. It is likely that your insurance covers some portion of your treatment, making care more affordable than you might have originally thought!
