Did you know that Dr. Andrew is board-eligible for his certification from the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association and certified in Webster Technique, a chiropractic technique targeted specifically for expectant mothers? In addition to caring for well over a hundred women during their pregnancies, he also adjusted his wife  regularly throughout her first pregnancy with their son Luke and is adjusting her again through their second pregnancy.

Chiropractic care during pregnancy isn’t just a bunch of hocus-pocus. In fact, The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics and The American Pregnancy Association both recognized research-based benefits of chiropractic benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy including:

  • Maintaining a healthier pregnancy
  • Controlling symptoms of nausea
  • Reducing the time of labor and delivery
  • Relieving back, neck or joint pain
  • Prevent a potential cesarean delivery

Chiropractic care during pregnancy just makes sense! While benefits are maximized the earlier in pregnancy that you begin receiving care, it is really never too late to start!

To make it convenient for all of our local moms to receive care, Dr. Andrew sees patients in our Staunton office 6 days a week, and also sees patients at Brookhaven Birth Center in Harrisonburg on Wednesday afternoons. Please Contact Us for more details or to schedule an appointment!
