Prenatal Chiropractic in Royal Oak

Did you know that 96% of women experience back pain during pregnancy?

Guiding You Through a Healthy Pregnancy

Think of all the extra weight you’re carrying around from your unborn baby. Hormonal changes make the pelvis more flexible, which can result in the spinal joints, muscles and ligaments more susceptible to injury. Chiropractic care can help expecting moms by

  • Educating you on correct posture, lifting and other lifestyle factors that can reduce spinal stress
  • Ensuring the joints of the pelvis and low back move freely for a successful birth
  • Helping the spine adapt to the increased weight and altered posture of pregnancy
  • Recommending exercises to improve spinal health
  • Restoring joint mechanics to reduce pain and improve function

Our Prenatal Chiropractors Are Highly Credentialed

Dr. Saylor and Dr. Ashley have both undertaken obstetric studies during their time at chiropractic school. They have also both acquired additional education about pregnancy care. Dr. Saylor earned her Pediatric Diplomate (DICCP) in 2000. This board-certified chiropractic specialty was established in 1993 by the Council on Chiropractic Pediatrics of the International Chiropractors Association. The comprehensive certification program entails 30 modules or more than 360 hours taught over the course of three years.

Dr. Ashley possesses Pediatric Certification from the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA). According to the ICPA website, “The rigorous, 200 hour curriculum offers techniques and protocols of care for children and pregnant women. The 15 module course covers levels of training and expertise additional to what is offered in chiropractic colleges.”

The Webster Technique for a Better Delivery

Developed by Dr. Larry Webster of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, this method releases stress on your pelvis. It allows your uterus to relax, giving the baby enough space to turn into the proper position for birth.
