What is chiropractic care all about?
Chiropractors seek to restore motion, balance and alignment to the body. When your body is in alignment, you reduce the amount of physical stress it experiences. You naturally hold yourself in better posture, your workouts are more efficient, your body can perform at its peak athletic ability, you heal faster, and you reduce pain and tension while optimizing health.
At MSQW, we make gentle, safe chiropractic adjustments to help you regain motion in your spine and joints. We use muscle and stretching techniques to release stored tension, restore proper musculoskeletal function and reduce stress on your nervous system.
WHAT IS CHIROPRACTIC CARE ALL ABOUT?

Are chiropractic adjustments safe during pregnancy?
Put simply, absolutely. Treatment from a chiropractor is safe at all stages of pregnancy.
Chiropractic care is a natural, drug-free way for patients to experience a more comfortable pregnancy and optimal birth.
We help our pregnant patients:
Decrease Pain & Discomfort: We use gentle techniques and accessories specifically designed for the safety, comfort and needs of pregnant women. By gently restoring proper pelvic alignment and balancing the associated ligaments and musculature, we can counterbalance the physical shifting that occurs as you (and your baby) grow.
Optimize Fetal Positioning: When the pelvis is torqued, the attached uterine ligaments are pulled in different directions. This action causes the uterus to stretch, leaving less room inside for your baby to grow and turn. When your pelvis and all its components are in balance, your baby has more room to move around, decreasing the possibility of intrauterine constraint and malposition (ie: breech presentation).
Optimize Labor and Delivery: Just as with any chiropractic patient, proper alignment allows your brain and body to communicate clearly. Thus, your body will function at its best to coordinate your hormones, contractions and all the other nuances of birth.
