Pregnancy Chiropractic Care
The process of going through a pregnancy impacts a woman in significant ways. It may cause physical discomfort, pain and a myriad of changes in the body. Depending on the situation, you may need treatment to address specific concerns and encourage your body to maintain good health at different stages of an unborn child's development and growth. At O'Dell Family Chiropractic, we understand the complications that arise during pregnancy and offer solutions to help with your goals.
What is Pregnancy or Prenatal Chiropractic Care?
Pregnancy Chiropractic Care, or prenatal care, refers to treatments designed to address the specific concerns of an expectant mother. Since you may have changes in your body due to an unborn child or limitations in your movements from the growing child, we provide gentle treatments that help with your needs without taking unnecessary risks with a baby's health.
The treatment assists with specific concerns related to health and may prevent certain complications from the pregnancy. A chiropractor evaluates your health and develops a personalized solution to address your specific needs.
Benefits of Chiropractic Treatments During Pregnancy

Common advantages associated with the treatments include:
- Reduced back pain
