Pregnancy Chiropractic Care in Lambertville, NJ
At River’s Edge Chiropractic, we specialize in offering chiropractic care for expecting mothers. During the various stages of your pregnancy and labor, your spine is subjected to an extreme amount of stress. The center of gravity shifts forward and the substantial weight that you gain will add stress to the spine of the expecting mother. This will lead to headaches, lower back pain, insomnia, nausea and other symptoms that can interfere with the quality of the mother’s life.
Furthermore, a spine that is misaligned, stressed or worn out can result in complications during the delivery of the child. This can lead to a painful delivery as well as problems with the positioning of the baby. A study performed by the American Medical Association concluded that women who got chiropractic treatment during their pregnancy were able to carry and deliver their baby with far more comfort.
Dealing with shifting weight, imbalance and pain & discomfort from a taxed nervous system are prime reasons for the need of chiropractic care for pregnant women. Dr. Melissa McCue, DC is an expert at delivering high-quality chiropractic services for expecting mothers from day one of pregnancy to birth – and beyond.
Webster Technique for Pregnant Women
The Webster Technique was designed to help remove subluxations in pregnant women and restore balance to the pelvic area through adjustments and relaxation of special ligaments in the pelvic girdle. This helps to relieve the pressure and stress that can be placed on the pelvic area during pregnancy & childbirth and it also helps with optimal fetal positioning.
Pregnancy Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic care for expecting mothers includes adjustments and manipulations designed to maintain proper pelvic balance & alignment and to cut down on complications to help ensure a smooth delivery. Natural pain relief is also a key benefit as all medications can cross the placenta and have negative effects on your soon to be bundle of joy!
At River’s Edge Chiropractic we also provide our patients with the option of receiving pregnancy massages from our massage therapist. These massages utilize a comfortable, secure side-laying position for the expected mother in order to avoid undue pressure on the lower back and the growing abdomen.
Benefits to pregnancy massage include blood pressure control, strengthened immunity system, anxiety and depression reduction, stretch mark prevention, better sleep and many more.
I started taking my 6 week old son to Dr. Melissa for acid reflux. He was always crying from the pain and I was reaching a breaking point. After doing a lot of research I came across lots of threads about how chiropractics “cured” babies reflux, I decided to give it a try. I googled chiropractors in the area and Colonial Valley popped right up. After reading great reviews I gave them a call. It was the best decision I could have made for my son. I saw an immediate change in his behavior. His reflux would get better after each visit to the point that after a few weeks he was off his reflux meds. Now he is a 5 months old and happy as can be! We have had a great experience with Colonial Valley and can not thank Dr. Melissa for all she has done to help our sweet boy!
It is amazing what you would do as a mother to get the best care for your child. I was referred to Dr. Melissa McCue by a reliable source and started taking my infant son to see her for acid reflux issues (despite living almost an hour from the office). She is not only incredibly pleasant but also highly knowledgable. As time went, on she also helped my son identify and overcome a subluxation issue which caused him to struggle with crawling. We then transferred to a Dr closer to home with Dr Melissa’s help, merely for commuting convenience, however that Dr did not compare in any way, so back we were and continue to go! Words cannot express how much we love seeing Dr Melissa (yes, especially my son!). She is great with children and her care is above and beyond what words could describe. Worth the hour drive!!
Dr. Melissa is such a pleasure to work with. Incredibly pleasant, knowledgeable, and amazing with children! We first started going to Colonial Valley Chiro for my infant son’s acid reflux issues. Not only did Dr. Melissa help him get through that, but she has also helped us identify and improve a subluxation that prevented my son from crawling properly. Thanks to her treatment plan, he not only started crawling properly, but his progress has skyrocketed and within a few short months he started crawling and running! We can not thank her enough and are so happy to have been referred to her care.
You can not go wrong with Dr. Mike and Melissa McCue. They have a whole body approach to maintaining your health and healing when you need it.
Thanks to Dr. Melissa and Dr. Mike, I was able to understand the power of chiropractic care. More importantly they helped erase my fear of going to the chiropractor with their techniques and their patience for explaining each and every move. THANK YOU!
