What is a Chiropractor?

- Your insurance card and a form of ID.
How many visits will I need?
The number of treatments will vary depending on the problem and individual. After a thorough assessment, the chiropractor will discuss their treatment plan for the spinal correction to take place.
What should I wear to my appointment?

Can pregnant women be adjusted?
Absolutely, in fact it is good for pregnant moms to get checked throughout their pregnancy as the baby grows and increased tension is put on the low back. Hormones are also changing preparing for the birth process which can affecting the ligaments in the pelvis allowing it to misalign. It is important to have a properly aligned pelvis during the birthing process to minimize complications.
We have done additional training to work with pregnant moms and are Webster Certified.
