Prenatal Chiropractic Care
Prenatal chiropractic care is a natural, hands-on approach to aches and pains commonly associated with pregnancy.
Chiropractic adjustments result in better pregnancies
Studies have shown that receiving regular prenatal chiropractic care throughout pregnancy may facilitate a faster, easier birth, and delivery process. Prenatal chiropractic care aims to ensure proper alignment of the spine and pelvis, which aids in the ease of the delivery process.

A woman’s body undergoes many subtle changes during pregnancy which may cause a variety of aches, pains and overall soreness. Many expectant mothers suffer from hip, lower back and pelvic pain throughout their pregnancy as a result of changes in their bodies. Regular chiropractic care during pregnancy may help to alleviate those pains and stresses.

 

Pregnancy and Chiropractic Care

While going through pregnancy, it is expected for a woman to gain weight. This puts additional pressure on her joints, changing her center of gravity, causing her spine to adapt to support her changing body type. A woman’s hips undergo changes during pregnancy. The hips may alter their natural position to help stabilize the changes that occur, putting extra pressure on the sacroiliac joints and low back, causing pain or soreness. Women also undergo hormonal changes during their pregnancy which may cause ligaments between bones to become more “lax”. This laxity allows pelvic bones to displace more readily, often leading to low back and pelvic discomfort. By evaluating and addressing the areas of concern for the expectant mother, one of our doctors will provide safe, gentle adjustments to correct any misalignments or problems that they may find.

 

Our goal is to make your prenatal adjustments as easy and comfortable as possible.

“Very friendly, professional, and make me feel safe! I was looking for a chiropractor who specialized in prenatal care when I was having back pain with my first child, and I am so happy to have found Dr. Brad. He helped me tremendously throughout my first pregnancy and now again throughout my second. Would highly recommend!”

“I cannot recommend Dr. Allison and Bakke Chiropractic enough! She has done an incredible job listening to my pain points, keeping me informed throughout each adjustment, and educating me on ways to improve my health - especially throughout the transition to working from home. The front desk staff is kind and attentive. The space is clean and sanitized. I know Bakke will always accommodate my ever-changing schedule with ease.”

“Dr. Kris Wakefield is the man. Being new to the Madison area, I needed to find a new chiropractor that could set me straight. After trying a clinic elsewhere in Sun Prairie and leaving unsatisfied, Bakke Chiropractic turned out to be the exact remedy I was searching for. Dr. Wakefield corrected my issue in fifteen minutes, whereas other clinics proposed three month treatment plans before I could expect relief.

He guided me through a few at-home stretched to help strengthen and maintain a few problematic neck and back muscles, and said he would be there whenever I needed an adjustment.”

“I highly recommend Dr. Bollig - very professional and awesome adjuster! If you’re dealing with aches and pain - give him a try!”

“Dr. Phil is hands down the best chiropractor I have ever been to. I have a highly physical job that takes a toll on my body. But thanks to Dr. Phil I deal with less pain and feel better overall. Regular adjustments keep my body in tiptop condition. Besides being highly skilled, Dr. Phil is tremendously knowledgeable, compassionate, and personable. I would recommend his work to anyone.”

“I have had the opportunity to work with both Dr. Jen and Dr. Allison here at the Bakke Deforest clinic, and have to say they both are absolutely phenomenal to work with. Both of them were professional and helped me get back into top performance again. I try to recommend either of these two to any of my friends who complain of back pain.

I have also taken the opportunity to see the massage therapist at Bakke as well. It has been a little over a year since I used that service due to COVID, but I do plan to use that service again as soon as I can. They were one of the best messages I have.”
