Dr. Horak is trained to accommodate the special needs of pregnant women. His treatments are modified to each and every pregnancy so that no pressure is applied to the abdomen.
Misaligned joints may be caused by the massive changes that occur during a pregnancy. Weight gain, changes to the alignment of the pelvis, changes to posture, and increased curvature of the back all contribute to pain and discomfort.
Dr. Horak's chiropractic and acupuncture treatments can be especially effective in reducing the effects of these physical stresses on the body. His chiropractic treatment and needle-less acupuncture can provide relief for other symptoms of pregnancy, such as nausea and morning sickness. Stress to the uterus and its supporting ligaments may be reduced by establishing balance to the pelvis.
