Experience a Comfortable Pregnancy with Chiropractic Care at Dolan Family Chiropractic.

Dr. Alorna Dolan is one of the highest trained pregnancy chiropractors in the Aurora/Naperville area. Many chiropractors treat children and pregnant patients without any formal training beyond general studies in school. Following graduation from chiropractic school, Dr. Alorna completed an additional two years of post-doctoral training through the ICPA to become certified in pediatrics and pregnancy. She regularly taught pregnancy relaxation courses through two major hospitals for over 10 years while working alongside many of the top pediatricians, OBGYN physicians, midwives, and doulas in the Chicagoland area. She is trained in the Webster Technique for breech and transverse baby presentations and has successfully treated hundreds of cases. Very few chiropractors in IL have her training and experience, which is why patients come from all over to seek her care.

Pregnancy is a beautiful journey filled with anticipation and joy. However, the physical changes a woman’s body undergoes during this time can often lead to discomfort and pain. This is where chiropractic care emerges as a beacon of relief and support. Research and statistics overwhelmingly demonstrate the benefits of chiropractic during pregnancy, making it an essential consideration for expectant mothers.

1. Alleviating Back Pain:
Statistics reveal that nearly 50-70% of pregnant women experience back pain at some point during their pregnancy. Chiropractic adjustments offer a non-invasive and drug-free approach to managing this discomfort. By realigning the spine and ensuring optimal pelvic balance, chiropractors can significantly reduce back pain, enabling mothers-to-be to move, sleep, and enjoy their pregnancy more comfortably.

2. Reducing Labor and Delivery Time:
A study published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics found that first-time mothers who received chiropractic care throughout pregnancy had, on average, a 25% shorter labor time, whereas mothers who had given birth previously experienced a 31% reduction. This remarkable statistic underscores the importance of spinal alignment and its impact on the birthing process.

3. Easing Pregnancy Symptoms:
Beyond back pain, many pregnant women suffer from a myriad of symptoms such as nausea, headaches, and sciatica. Chiropractic care can address these issues by ensuring that the nervous system functions optimally. When the spine is correctly aligned, it promotes better nerve communication throughout the body, potentially alleviating these bothersome symptoms.

4. Promoting Fetal Positioning:
Optimal pelvic alignment isn’t just beneficial for the mother; it can also influence the baby’s positioning. Proper pelvic balance provides the fetus with more room to develop, potentially reducing the risk of breech or posterior positions. Chiropractic techniques like the Webster Technique are specifically designed to help balance the pelvis, increasing the likelihood of a smoother delivery.

5. Enhancing Overall Well-being:
Pregnancy is a time of heightened emotions and physical changes. Regular chiropractic adjustments can help manage stress, improve mood, and enhance overall well-being. By ensuring that the spine and nervous system function optimally, expectant mothers can experience a better quality of life throughout their pregnancy journey.

In conclusion, the benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy are both profound and well-supported by research. As expectant mothers navigate the beautiful complexities of pregnancy, chiropractic offers a holistic and natural approach to addressing common discomforts, promoting optimal fetal positioning, and enhancing overall well-being. Embrace the journey of pregnancy with confidence and comfort by incorporating chiropractic care into your prenatal routine. Your body and baby will thank you!
