Frequently Asked Questions:
- “Pregnancy is natural. Why would I need chiropractic care?” Medicine sees pregnancy as a disease. Chiropractic does not. We seek to see that you are as healthy as possible through the whole process. Does that make sense?
- “Will my OB-GYN approve?” Perhaps not. But so what? First, you don’t need anyone’s approval to seek a chiropractic opinion about health issues affecting you and your child! Secondly, your OB-GYN is NOT an expert on all things, especially all things natural, especially Chiropractic. Since the beginning of Chiropractic (1895), Medicine has been waging a war, sometimes quietly, sometimes not, against Chiropractic, and your right to choose it. Use your own judgment, please.
