Pregnancy is a lot to bear
While we don’t practice obstetrics we do care for all of the joint and muscle aches associated with pregnancy.
Chiropractic adjustments for pregnant women are a safe and effective way to relieve the low back pain that about 50% of expecting mothers experience. We also offer pregnancy massages that can alleviate these aches and pains. Chiropractic and massage have a special place in the care of pregnant women because it isn’t safe to take non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as ibuprofen, Advil, Aleve, etc.
There is also emerging evidence that Tylenol (acetaminophen), which is commonly recommended during pregnancy, has an association with ADHD in children.
We use special equipment to provide a safe and comfortable experience as your pregnancy progresses. We can help keep you active exercising, working and doing all of the other things you need to get done. Pain shouldn’t get in your way while you are expecting and we can help.
There is some evidence that massage therapy during the final 12 weeks of pregnancy can help reduce prematurity, low birth weight, and postpartum depression. It is a safe, effective treatment option that also feels fantastic.
Here are some references about the effectiveness of chiropractic and massage during pregnancy.

What People Say About Us.
I have found Dr. Young to be quite knowledgeable, helping me with my headaches and able to work and adjust me as I go through pregnancy. I know I will feel better anytime I see him for something that has come out of alignment and I know my baby will be in good hands when I start bringing my child to see him. He and the staff at Body of Health are friendly and welcoming and the office has a calming atmosphere.
