Prenatal Chiropractor Services
At Northwest Rehab Group, we help new mothers with any prenatal and postnatal pain. As the baby grows, your body changes as well. Your center of gravity shifts and creates different areas of pain and discomfort. As the body gets ready to give birth, the hormone relaxin increases. This hormone help relaxes the ligaments in the pelvis and softens and widens the cervix, but can affect other areas of the body. Pain doesn't stop once the baby is born! Different aches and pains occur including wrist pain with holding the newborns, back pain with breast feeding and pelvic floor weakness and incontinence. Our chiropractor, Dr. Krista Camille Delos Reyes, has a special interest in prenatal and postnatal care for moms throughout their pregnancy and pains that occur after. She provides soft tissue therapy, mobilizations, light adjustments, exercise rehab and k-tape to new moms and moms-to-be.
Chiropractic improves joint and neuromuscular health by assessing, diagnosing, and manually treating the bones, muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and joints that you use in your everyday life. By receiving an adjustment, your muscles will relax and your ranges of motion will improve. At Northwest Rehab Group, we will personalize a plan for you in order for you to recover from your aches and pains.

Extended Subsequent Treatment
Common questions about chiropractic treatment:
Do I have to be adjusted?
No, our chiropractors provide more than adjustments. If you are uncomfortable with adjustments, we can provide soft tissue therapy, mobilizations and active rehab to help get you back to a pain-free state.
Will an adjustment fix everything?
The adjustment is only one small component to get you feeling better and back to feeling like your regular self! As the adjustment may only be a temporary fix for some people, it is very important to focus on the self-care outside the clinic by continuing your prescribed exercises to keep you in a longer period of pain relief.
Do chiropractors work on other areas other than the spine?
Yes, our chiropractors work on any joint, muscle and nerve related pain in the body! As neuromusculoskeletal experts, we are educated on more than just the spine!
