Pregnancy Chiropractic in Royal Oak

Guiding You Through a Healthy Pregnancy

Did you know that 96% of women experience back pain during 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 undertook obstetric studies during her time at chiropractic school. She has 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.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

How safe is an adjustment during pregnancy?

During pregnancy is one of the best times to be adjusted. Pregnant mothers often find chiropractic adjustments improve lower back pain and lessen the complications of delivery. Studies have found that it can decrease the average delivery time by 3 hours. KST works amazingly for pregnancy, and it is so gentle for the mom and the baby.

In fact, you rarely even have to lie down on a table. Dr. Saylor has her Diplomate in Pregnancy and Pediatrics, which is a 3-year additional degree. We have a great video that helps explain how KST chiropractic can benefit you during your pregnancy.
