Pregnancy, Infants, & Children

Pregnancy, infants & children treatment

At Katona Chiropractic we care for many pregnant women.  The importance of chiropractic care during this time in a women’s life is often overlooked, and under utilized.  With so many changes happening in the women’s body both physically and chemically, it is best to make sure the spine is aligned correctly and not interfering with important messages the nerves are trying to send to the body as well as the baby. We take special care of women during pregnancy by utilizing adjusting benches that are specifically designed for pregnant women to insure accuracy and comfort. Its an honor to care for you and your baby’s health.

“As an intern in chiropractic college I treated my first pregnant woman which was very rewarding.  I believe pregnancy is an amazing process and and have since been a part of many women’s prenatal care team.  Over 25 years later I have had the privilege and honor of treating these women’s children from birth and throughout their lives. having your children examined at a young age is truly one of the  best preventative measures you can take in their health.  I have thoroughly enjoyed watching them, as well as my own 4 children grow up healthy with chiropractic care as an important part of their lives.”
