At chiroFX, we believe that this is where chiroFX is different to MOST other chiropractors and medical practitioners that lack thoroughness and attention to detail!

Dr. Minors usually conducts an X-Ray exam of his patients to see exactly what may be contributing to the patient’s ailments. However, because pregnant women should not be exposed to radiation, Dr. Minors uses software that diagnoses spinal misalignment.

This examination is done in his office, FREE of radiation and intrusion, and only takes 15 minutes!

An evaluation by Dr. Minors is never in any way a sign of obligation for treatment – Dr. Minors always aims to empower his patients with the knowledge of their own body.

During pregnancy, the body releases the a chemical (Pitocin) that increases flexibility in the joints to help the birthing process. However, if your pelvis is misaligned, not only can it affect the positioning of your baby, but it can also affect the mothers body ability to properly dilate for delivery.

To avoid birthing complications, pregnancy safe chiropractic adjustments align the pelvis to allow the body to do what it does best, naturally. 

Pregnancy Safe Massage Therapy and its Benefits

Studies show that stress levels decrease, on average, by 31% and mental wellness increased by 28% on average as an effect of prenatal massage therapy.
