Pregnancy can be a time of joy and exciting anticipation, yet for some the experience is colored by pain, discomfort and illness. This is often because pregnant women undergo many structural and hormonal changes that affect the spine, nerves, joints, ligaments, connective tissues, center of gravity and stability. The doctor of chiropractic can ensure that the spinal column, pelvis and related structures are balanced, moving easily and free of vertebral subluxations.
When free of vertebral subluxations, the mother-to-be experiences pregnancy at a greater level of comfort, health and vitality and can better handle the rigor of childbirth.
Since nearly all drugs and medications can cause fetal damage or malformations it is important for pregnant women to avoid them as much as possible. Chiropracticâ€™s drugless approach is another reason why it is valued during pregnancy.
There are so many things pregnant women worry about: staying pregnant, carrying the baby to full term, morning sickness, the baby developing normally, backaches, leg pain and if their labor will be safe and (hopefully) easy.
Can chiropractic care help ease their minds? Chiropractic care has been observed to help pregnant and birthing women a number of ways. Chiropractors have been performing spinal adjustments on pregnant women for over one hundred years and have noted that chiropractic spinal corrective care may help maintain pregnancy, control vomiting during pregnancy, deliver full term infants with ease and produce healthier infants
Pre-natal chiropractic techniques release stress on the pelvis and uterus, helping the unborn child to turn and position itself properly for a healthy birth presentation. (For more information on this procedure, visit the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association at: www.icpa4kids.com

I've been seeing Dr. Mark for a short time and I'm happy to report a great change in my acute and overall health. He has helped with back pain and inflammation of joints through combination of chiropractic and ayurveda . Being well versed in both disciplines is not common. He's a gem !
I got really impressed by Dr Mark, he has experienced and knowledge. After my first visit, I felt released .... as a "miracle" my lower back uncomfortable GONE!
I got slipped disc and sciatica at the same time and I was introduced to Dr. Mark. He is an amazing chiropractor I've ever seen. I had 3 months of gun treatments and now I'm healed and able to work out everyday without the pain. I would definitely recommend to see him if you are looking for a chiropractor.
I started going to Dr Mark at the recommendation of a good friend for assistance with an injury. After that healed, I've continued seeing him regularly for more than 10 years because I find his chiropractic and ayurvedic care to be quite worthwhile. I always feel refreshed and recentered after a visit, not just realigned.
