Pregnancy

“I have suffered from tension pain in my upper shoulders/back for several years that created tingling down my arms. The pain would become unbelievable and I would take muscle relaxers and pain killers. However, the pain started again when I was 4 ½ months pregnant. My doctor recommended seeing a chiropractor. I figured it would be better than dealing with the pain. I was unable to concentrate at work or do normal activities due to the pain. I was referred to Sleigh Family Chiropractic and they were able to get me in for my first appointment immediately. Dr. Katie is an incredible friend and doctor. She cares with a huge heart and was so warm and welcoming. Within a few weeks the upper back pain and arms felt great however due to my weight and pregnancy I began to suffer from terrible lower back pain and upper leg pains. Again, Dr. Katie helped the pain and was always available for me to come in with little notice. I did a great deal of crying and Dr. Katie always made me feel so much better – emotionally and physically. I was induced at 39 weeks and was in labor for only 5 hours. I pushed only twice before my daughter was born. Yes, I had an epidural, however, I had no long pushing and my recovery was minimal. I truly believe this was due to the chiropractic care I received throughout my pregnancy. Dr. Katie kept my ligaments in place and kept my back adjusted. Allowing more room for my daughter to grow and made labor that much easier. I would recommend chiropractic care for all pregnant women. Dr. Katie is an incredible women and Dr. Quintin was and is always friendly and caring. The team at Sleigh Family Chiropractic is incredible and I am grateful to them every day for helping me throughout a rough pregnancy." -Amy
