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, Dr.Kristen, & Dr. Kennedy have undertaken obstetric studies during their time at chiropractic school. They have also 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.

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.

Incredibly Effective!

My first pregnancy was pain-free (aside from labor, of course!), and I attribute this to frequent visits to Van Every to help manage all of the changes my body went through to grow a child. My second pregnancy was going great until I woke up one day to incredible pain in my hips. They felt dislocated, my pain level was at an 8, and I could barely walk. Due to the nature of the injury, I knew that the only option to recover was chiropractic care. I just couldn’t see how anything else would help my hips go back to normal. I immediately went to Van Every and received a series of adjustments over the next week. By the 3rd adjustment, by pain level had decreased to a 4. By the end of the week, I was completely pain-free! Recovery was fast. The adjustments were incredibly effective and I am SO thankful that I was able to work with Dr. Anna to address the injury quickly.
