Pregnancy Services


Dr. Parsons took a year long course outside of Chiropractic School to build on her education and passion to help treat pregnant women and children.  Chiropractic school only teaches one pediatrics class, clearly not enough. Dr. Parsons is certified through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association for treating both pregnancy and pediatrics.  She also has a certification in the Webster Technique.

Pregnancy, Chiropractic, and Pain
So many people think Chiropractic is ONLY for back pain and many th
ink it is dangerous to have done while they are pregnant. 

Not True!!

While Chiropractic is GREAT for back pain, neck pain, and headaches (to name a few) in ANY PERSON of ANY AGE... it is also a fantastic way to help pregnant women. If you think about it for a minute, what is a common thing people know about being pregnant... You can’t take medications (including common headache and back pain relievers). 

So what is a woman to do when her belly is sticking out so far she can't see her feet and because her center of gravity is so far off balance she has to arch her back even further to stop her from falling over? This change in posture can quickly irritate the low back as well as cause neck stiffness... and don't forget the hormones!! The fluctuation of hormones is one of the main causes of headaches and morning sickness.

Now remember, NO MEDICATIONS!  Should you suffer? No Way! 
Chiropractic is not only good for the overall wellness lifestyle (people who enjoy life pain free and great health; naturally), it is also great for pregnant women to get rid of their back pain, neck pain, headaches, and to minimize morning sickness.

Adjustments simply help put the spine and pelvis into proper alignment to take the pressure off of the nerves which are usually causing the pain. After everything is lined up properly, the muscles can relax, and everything functions better.
Pregnancy, Chiropractic, and Prevention

Although many women wait until pain comes on, or they think 'I feel fine, I don't need Chiropractic', they are making a big mistake.
Getting adjusted before, during, and after pregnancy not only prevents
pain from coming on and keeps pain away, but also encourages proper mobility of the pelvic bones. The three bones in your pelvis need to be as mobile as possible to be able to expand during labor and delivery while the baby is descending.
Also, if your nervous system is being compromised because of a misaligned vertebra and/or a pinched nerve and your body is creating this human being, doesn't it make sense that you would want this baby to have your full nervous system potential?
Pregnancy, Chiropractic, and Labor
Regular Chiropractic care throughout your pregnancy helps encourage a faster labor and delivery by promoting more mobile and looser pelvic bones. 

 To give you the best chances of a quick labor, Dr. Parsons will evaluate your spine and develop a treatment plan for you to follow throughout the pregnancy.  Typically a healthy woman with minimal spinal misalignments is recommended to get adjusted once a month for the first 6 months, 2 times per month for her 7th and 8th months, and every week thereafter until delivery. (This schedule is not for women needing the Webster Technique, which indicates a different treatment schedule.)

Webster Technique
Unfortunately, there are times when the baby is not in the optimal head down position, the baby can be either sideways or head up in the womb.  If this is the case,
