A note from Dr. Natalie to pregnant moms in Houma:
I see patients from when they are trying to conceive, the day they find out they're pregnant, until the wee hours before the baby arrives. It is never too early or too late to begin prenatal chiropractic care. Of course, I always make sure to rule out any contraindications to the adjustment before proceeding with care. I take a proper history and complete a thorough examination, but most women who come into the practice are chiropractic candidates.
According to a recent study 3 out of 4 women receiving chiropractic adjustments during pregnancy reported a significant pain reduction!
