Chiropractic care is a gentle, non-invasive approach to correcting and stabilizing the spine and pelvis. Completely safe throughout pregnancy, chiropractic care helps the body work better and ultimately, improve quality of life and potentially birth outcomes.
During pregnancy, a woman’s body undergoes dramatic changes – structurally, chemically (hormones), and emotionally. Chiropractic can help make pregnancy more comfortable, more enjoyable, and prepare the body for an easier, safer birth.
Being checked by a chiropractor during pregnancy ensures that your pelvis is sitting correctly to allow optimum room for your baby to grow and move.
“From my experience of being at more than 1500 births, women who have been under regular chiropractic care throughout their pregnancy have their pelvis aligned perfectly and the greatest chance for normal, natural birth.”

How We Can Help
Dr. Gorshack is a Webster Certified provider. The Webster technique is specific protocol for analysis of sacral misalignment. This misalignment may cause tension on the uterus. Pelvic balance is most important in pregnancy as hormones create instability in the pelvis in pregnancy. This gentle chiropractic adjustment reduces tension in the pelvic ligaments, restores normal neuro-biomechanics, improves uterine function and allows for optimal fetal positioning throughout pregnancy and in preparation for a safer, easier birth.
The International Chiropractic Pediatric Association website is a great resource, filled with research and articles that further explain the important role chiropractic plays in prenatal care.
Most of our prenatal care women also get their newborn checked to determine if chiropractic can help with development and challenges like breastfeeding, digestion, comfort, sleep, and immune function.
