During pregnancy, a woman’s body experiences many changes. It’s an exciting, but also sometimes, uncomfortable time. Your hormones are changing and your weight continues to shift. This can cause issues with posture and your spinal alignment. While many women assume this pain and discomfort is a normal part of pregnancy, it doesn’t have to be. With chiropractic adjustments performed by a qualified chiropractor, like Drs. Palmer and Catherine Peet, you can have a healthy, comfortable, and happy pregnancy. Dr. Peet is an expert in Chiropractic Prenatal care, and has taught hundreds of other Doctors of Chiropractic advanced techniques to use on the pregnant patient.
