Prenatal Chiropractic Care
During pregnancy, there are several physiological and endocrinological changes that occur in the preparation for creating the environment for the developing baby. The following changes could result in a misaligned spine or joints:
- Protruding abdomen
- pelvic changes
- Postural adaptations
Here at Alpine Health Center, Dr. Whalen has been trained to work with pregnant women and has tables that adjust for a pregnant woman's body and he will use techniques that avoid unneeded pressure on the abdomen.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises designed just for them to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction by as much as 30-40%. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patients' return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you Dr. Whalen can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
