Chiropractic treatment for pregnancy can be an outstanding source of relief for back pain. Many women also comment that the birthing process was easier after having undergone chiropractic treatments. During pregnancy, a woman’s body is undergoing a number of different changes to accommodate the growing baby. As the baby grows, a mother’s center of gravity shifts to the front of her pelvis, resulting in added stress and discomfort in the lower back and the various joints of the pelvis. At the peak of pregnancy, resulting from the associated weight gain, the curve in the lower back (lordotic curve) can increase to the point of causing serious impact on the vertebral joints, the sacrum, and the hip joints. This can make the tasks that become necessary once the child is born painfully difficult, such as:
Chiropractic practitioners can provide safe and effective personalized care throughout your pregnancy and in the postpartum period. A thorough examination will determine the best treatment to address your discomfort and prepare the body for the height of pregnancy and childbirth. There are adjustment methods to accommodate the pregnant mother. These treatments may reduce the need for pain medications throughout the pregnancy as well as possibly reduce labor time. Follow up treatments can assist in realigning the body after the pregnancy and speed up the transition to a healthy post-pregnancy body.

I'm so grateful to have found a chiropractor who not only excels in the activator method, but is also concerned about the well being of his patients. Dr. Pokorney takes steps to educate his patients and helps them live without pain in their day to day life. I'm so relaxed by the time I leave the office that I feel like I've spent the day at the spa.
I have never been a fan of the traditional twisting, pulling, popping. I have never heard of the activator method until I started getting treatment here at Pure Chiropractic. But man I love it. It has truly helped my health get back to normal. Honestly the best I have ever felt in years. Been dealing with a lot of pain in different areas and feel like a new person now. I will forever go to a chiropractor that uses the activator method. Thank you Dr P for all that you have done so far and all that you do in the future!!
I strongly recommend Pure Chiropractic. I have had back, neck and knee pain and mobility issues from various injuries ans work. Since seeing Dr. Pokorney I have so much more mobility and he has even relieved/corrected tons of issues I didn’t even realize. I feel better than I have in years and have been able to work a lot harder than before and still go home in little to no pain.
