Dr Alorna Dolan of Dolan Family Chiropractic in Aurora, IL became interested in helping pregnant patients early in her training and chose to complete her doctoral research in the chiropractic approach to treating the pregnant patient. After graduating from Logan College of Chiropractic, she pursued her passion by completing an additional 2 years of advanced post-doctoral training through the International Chiropractic Pediatrics Association (ICPA) and received her certification from the Academy of Family Practice and became Webster Technique Certified. She began practicing in a pregnancy and pediatrics based clinic in the northwestern suburbs and began working with midwives, obstetricians, pediatricians, and doulas from all settings including teaching a class at the local hospital on pregnancy relaxation techniques. She continues the same connections here in the Aurora/Naperville area working with the area’s top professionals and is a guest instructor for pregnancy classes at Copley Hospital.
Dr Alorna sees patients at all stages of their pregnancy from preconception to delivery and after. Using up to date techniques and specialized positioning pillows and equipment she is able to safely and effectively treat pregnant patients without harmful twisting or thrusting. Using a combination of gentle chiropractic adjustments, stretching, myofascial release, and muscle therapy, she eliminates common pains associated with pregnancy and restores proper balance to the pelvis and spine, allowing for a more comfortable pregnancy and delivery. Her ultimate goal is relax and balance the body to make the birthing process quicker and easier. She offers lifestyle and nutritional recommendations along the way to make sure you have a healthy and comfortable experience.
