Pregnancy and Chiropractic Care
We understand the importance of a healthy pregnancy at Family Roots Chiropractic. Optimal function of the nerve system and spinal column is needed to create a viable environment for baby.  We place a high priority on Mom’s well-being there having an effect on baby. 

Sciatic nerve issues? Pubic pain? Breech position? Low back pain?
When moms have a high functioning nervous system and are able to manage stress, their bodies are better able to adapt to the changes occurring throughout pregnancy. Increased spinal column and nervous system stress due to dramatic physical, mental, and emotional changes throughout pregnancy can cause many disturbance to Mama. Dr. Ashley, will find where the spine has increased stress and tension and correct it, allowing the nervous system to function more optimally.

Webster Technique
Dr. Ashley is Webster certified. The Webster technique is a technique used by chiropractors to reduce the tension and torsion in the uterus. When there is stress and tension in the uterus, the stress could ultimately affect progression of labor, optimal fetal positioning, and a natural pregnancy and birth.

We have listed a few research articles on chiropractic care and pregnancy.
