Pregnancy Chiropractor at Funk Chiropractic

When you are expecting, your baby’s health and well-being are always top of mind. Chiropractic is a safe form of health care during pregnancy, with benefits as far-reaching as reduced pain, better mobility and less chance of complications.

Dr. Funk’s wife was adjusted through all her pregnancies, and they’ve been blessed with five healthy children. Chiropractic is even beneficial postpartum, ensuring that you can heal quickly after your baby’s delivery.

Everything We Do Is Tailored to You

From your examination process to recommended treatment and the techniques used, everything we do will be customized to your individual needs. That includes the frequency of your visits. At the start of pregnancy, you may see Dr. Funk every two weeks or every month. In the later stages, your visits may become more frequent. It will all depend, however, on your particular situation.

The New Patient Process

A new patient visit for a pregnant woman is much the same as it would be for anyone else that was a new patient. There are never any X-rays recommended for expecting moms. Your adjustments will be modified to suit your comfort level. If there is anything that doesn’t suit your preferences, just let Dr. Funk know, and he’ll be sure to adapt to what you’d like.

Along with your adjustments, Dr. Funk may recommend a form of therapy depending on what will work best for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are pregnant women adjusted differently?

Yes. Our techniques are always modified to ensure Mom’s comfort as her body is changing throughout pregnancy. Our adjusting tables accommodate a growing belly, as a section of the table gives way. You can lie on your stomach and be adjusted without any worry for your baby’s safety.

Do you use the Webster Technique?

Yes. Dr. Funk has seen mothers whose babies weren’t engaged properly and used the Webster Technique with great success. This technique addresses ligaments around the uterus and the pelvis area to optimize that space. Your baby may have a better chance of turning in the head-down position and engaging with the birthing process.

Will you work with my other providers?

Absolutely. Dr. Funk works with OB-GYNs, midwives and medical doctors alike. We want to make sure you get exactly what you need, which can often include making sure all your providers are on the same page, working together for your benefit.

At which stage of pregnancy should I begin care?

Whether you are trying to conceive or in a later trimester, you can become a chiropractic patient at any time. We’ve had women come in and get adjusted shortly before their delivery. Others choose to start care as soon as they find out they’re pregnant. It is fine to start at any stage of your pregnancy journey.

What are the benefits of pregnancy care that I can experience?

The biggest benefit that most moms come in for is going to come as no surprise—it’s all about pain relief. If you’ve been pregnant before, you know how many aches and pains are involved. Headaches, mid-back pain, low-back pain, pelvic and hip pain, sciatica—the list goes on and on.

These conditions are many of the most common that pregnant women come to us to get help with.

Beyond pain relief, however, chiropractic has many other advantages. For example, research shows that women under care have faster, easier labors with fewer interventions required.

Many moms come in during pregnancy because they know chiropractic is a way to make sure their body is aligned, giving their baby every advantage and going into the labor and delivery process in the best shape possible.
