Chiropractic care can add comfort during pregnancy and is an essential ingredient to prenatal care. Imbalances in your spine and pelvis during pregnancy make it difficult to perform normal daily activities. Due to the rapid growth of the baby during pregnancy, a large percentage of women experience spinal pain and discomfort. Chiropractic care during pregnancy can relieve and prevent the common discomforts many women experience during pregnancy by restoring a state of pelvic balance, helping to create a healthier pregnancy, and an overall easier and safer delivery.
Dr. Karis has received additional training and certification in specific adjustments and techniques required to balance the pelvis and spine during pregnancy. Dr. Karis is a member of the ICPA and is certified in the Webster Technique.
A chiropractic adjustment called the Webster technique is a specific sacral adjustment to help facilitate the mother's pelvic alignment and nerve system function. This in turn balances pelvic muscles and ligaments, reduces torsion to the uterus.

I can not describe in words what a relief my body felt after Dr. Karis adjusted me at 36 weeks pregnant. NO MORE PAIN in my hips and back!! I was so relieved and thankful for the referral. It's hard to find an amazing chiropractor and someone who deeply cares about your whole well-being. Dr. Karis also adjusted my newborn at 6 days old. My baby slept for hours and nursed substantially better! I couldn't be happier.Katie R.
