Many women believe that the aches and pains associated with pregnancy—from backaches to carpal tunnel syndrome—just have to be tolerated. But that doesn’t need to be the case! Drs. Vicki and Erik Hemmett, two passionate and expert chiropractors, are here to help you enjoy a vibrant pregnancy with minimal discomfort.
The doctors outline nine basic prenatal orthopedic conditions: piriformis syndrome (hip and/or leg pain), bursitis (hip pain), sacroiliac syndrome, low back pain, foot pain, pubic pain, carpal tunnel syndrome and thoracic outlet syndrome (numbness and tingling in the hands), breech presentation, and preventing postnatal urinary incontinence.
With the informed consent of your obstetrician (who should be notified if you experience any of the above), learn how to perform simple daily prenatal stretches and exercises, as well as seek out additional therapies.
In addition to these different techniques, the Hemmetts have created a guide to basic prenatal nutrition requirements. You don’t need to “eat for two,” but you do need to make sure you and your baby get essential vitamins and nutrients.
You don’t need to live with your pain! Take the first step to alleviating your aches and tension, and have a happier, healthier, and more peaceful pregnancy.

Presenting as a myriad of symptoms of regional and localized pain and dysfunction and with over 50% of women suffering, it is a silent epidemic that requires a bold and revolutionary solution.
The symptoms include:
