Prenatal Chiropractic Care in Thousand Oaks

You don't have to suffer during pregnancy and labor. Chiropractic care is absolutely safe while you are pregnant and is one of the best options you can choose for you and your baby. Dr. Jamie Culhane offers pre- and post-natal care for both mother and baby.

Family care starts from the very beginning. Babies can benefit when their pregnant mothers receive chiropractic care from the beginning of their pregnancy. During this period of weight gain, hormonal changes, loosening of the connective tissues, and a shifting of the body's center of gravity, many mothers seek chiropractic care. Expecting mothers have special concerns, and they need personalized care from an expert Chiropractor, like Dr. Culhane.

Dr. Jamie Culhane will provide you with a comprehensive care plan. She will examine your spinal column for misalignments, which cause spine and nerve stress (severe back pain). Vertebral misalignments, called subluxations, damage your nervous system and affect the functions of the entire body. The slightest interference to the nerve supply could adversely affect the mother and developing baby. Dr. Culhane will check for subluxations throughout your pregnancy to release spinal and nerve stress. A nervous system free of interference will allow your body and baby to function better, have stronger immunity, and contribute to a better labor and delivery outcome. Woman who receive regular chiropractic care from Dr. Culhane during pregnancy often report healthier pregnancies and more comfortable deliveries. Dr. Culhane also recommends a post-partum checkup following your labor and delivery to bring your pelvic into balance.

Drugless Health Care

An excellent reason to receive chiropractic care, while pregnant, is it is a natural, drugless form of care for both mother and baby. Drugs, or medications, whether prescription or over-the-counter, can harm the growing baby. There is no such thing as a safe drug. The safest thing for a pregnant woman to do is avoid all medication and seek natural alternatives for health care, if at all possible. Almost all types of drugs and medications have been linked to fetal damage or malformations.

Dr. Jamie Culhane is certified in the Webster Breech technique.
