During pregnancy, the body goes through amazing changes. With the spine, pelvis and other parts of the body moving around during every stage of a pregnancy, misalignments can occur, causing disorders that can affect the nerves, muscles or organs.
With the body changing drastically, the spinal column itself moves to accommodate a child and the extra weight. The pelvis undergoes many changes to compensate for the growing baby as well.
Risk of misalignments and interference of the nervous system can increase as pregnancy continues. The pelvis supports the growing uterus with specific ligaments, tendons and muscles.

If the bones of the pelvis are out of alignment, this can cause asymmetrical ligament support of the uterus and result in a more difficult passage for the baby during delivery.
These structural changes can affect the nerves and the spinal cord, disrupting the normal communication of information between the brain and the body. Dr. Brooke can adjust a spine and extremities to help the body feel relaxed and subside pain or soreness.
