Dr. Melissa is great. Got to my 1st appointment early and didn’t have to wait at all. She explained everything before and during the adjustments, took a good amount of time to learn my medical history and all of my ailments… and my pinched nerve (the reason I made the appt.) was better within 2 days! She was also very accommodating to my schedule and understanding on a last minute cancellation due to a migraine and in general very friendly and kind as is her son who was the receptionist.
Pregnancy Chiropractor in Lawrenceville, NJ
Pregnancy Chiropractic Care in Lawrenceville, NJ
At Colonial Valley 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 Colonial Valley Chiropractic we also provide our patients with the option of receiving pregnancy massages. 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.
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.
Dr. Melissa and staff have been great over the past year. Always feel great after my appointment. I would highly recommend them.
McCue is by far the best chiropractor group I have ever been to. Myself and my son, who suffered from a severe tongue tie, started seeing Melissa by a simple google search and it was literally the best thing that happened to us. Not only was she amazing with my then 2 month old, but she also linked us with a CST therapist and made amazing recommendations that have not only made major improvements with both my and my sons health, but now my little guy is all caught up and LOVES coming to see her for maintenance. They are so accommodating for schedules, they have great communication with all of their patients, their facility is spotless and Melissa and her husband are the most down to earth people you will ever meet. Our family will never see anyone else!
I stayed in corporate housing and slept on the most uncomfortable mattress ever. It made any side of my body that I slept on ache, and it made my pregnancy uncomfortable. I also saw another chiropractor prior to my pregnancy and had a consistent pain due to their work. Melissa solves any back issues I may have had with only about 4 visits. I had to take a break in seeing her due to COVID. However, I know that any ease I experienced with my labor was due to the care I received here and I had completely zero back pain for the rest of my pregnancy, during labor, and post partum.
