Chiropractic and RockTape Support Pregnancy
Many of our pregnant patients say they feel more energized, get better sleep, and show up better in other areas of their life when they are adjusted regularly. They also feel better when they are getting support for their musculoskeletal system through proper taping techniques.
Pregnancy is a Tough 40 Weeks on a Woman’s Body.
Considering the physical, hormonal and emotional changes that occur, pregnant women need a lot of support. Many women experience a sore and fatigued back from the biomechanical stress of carrying the extra weight. Others experience pain in their arms, wrists, or pelvic girdle.
Chiropractic adjustments and RockTape can help.
RockTape has created many different taping protocols with the goal of easing the pain and stress on the pregnant body. Swollen feet? RockTape can help. Sciatica? Plantar Fasciitis? Rib Pain? RockTape can help.
