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.
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.
I got to know Dr. Melissa when I wanted a chiropractor for my second pregnancy in 2016 who follows Webster method. The moment I saw she was so warm and compassionate towards me and supported me everyway to make this pregnancy smooth as I wanted a VBAC! She used to give me advices and print outs of holistic approach of how to help me sail my pregnancy smoothly (I got to know her during my 34 weeks wish had known her before!!). Post delivery she saw my baby when she was just a week old and she was so gentle, compassionate towards her that my baby loved her so much and she was colic free baby!! Dr. Melissa is great with kids. I take my whole family to her. My son loves her so much!! Whenever my kids get sick I trust only Dr. Melissa more than our pediatrician that we meet her first get her advise and then follow it! Esp my son (4 years old now he is so comfortable with her that he used to say this from 3 years!) whenever he is sick he always says “Can we visit Dr. Melissa?” Dr. Melissa takes us right away when we mail her regarding our kids! She is very accommodating! She has helped us with everything from a common cold to ear infection with her adjustments as the nervous system is the key to good health! We trust her fully 500% and have recommended to many of my friends and families!! We are so grateful and highly appreciative that Dr. Melissa has taken always best interest in our health with so much of love and compassion!! I highly recommend her and will recommend her to anyone for a complete family care!! She truly has Magical hands with the newborns and kids as well as the adults!!
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.
My family and I have been seeing Dr. Mike for over a year now. When I started, I was experiencing severe pain from sciatica. I’ve been pain free since going to Dr. Mike. Look forward to my regular maintenance visits. Highly recommended!
