Pregnancy Chiropractor in Westfield, NJ: During pregnancy, the body goes through amazing changes. With the spine, pelvis and other parts of the body moving around during every stage of a pregnancy, misalignments can occur, causing disorders that can affect the nerves, muscles or organs.
With the body changing drastically, the spinal column itself moves to accommodate a child and the extra weight. The pelvis undergoes many changes to compensate for the growing baby as well. Risk of misalignments and interference of the nervous system can increase as pregnancy continues. The pelvis supports the growing uterus with specific ligaments. If the bones of the pelvis are out of alignment, this will cause asymmetrical ligament support of the uterus. This results in a more difficult passage for the baby during delivery.
These structural changes can affect the nerves and the spinal cord, disrupting the normal communication of information between the brain and the body. Dr. Carnucci can adjust a spine and extremities to help the body feel relaxed and subside pain or soreness.
During a pregnancy, going to Dr. Carnucci will help to formulate a specific solution to target the problem areas at every stage. Having regular chiropractic care during a pregnancy can reveal important information regarding a person’s overall heath and provide a base for an effective course of action during a pregnancy.
Chiropractic care has been shown to decrease labor time, reduce the need for pain medications, and may even reduce the possibility of post-partum. Those who are pregnant come to chiropractors with problems such as heartburn, morning sickness, low back pain, breech babies, sciatica, swollen ankles and feet, headaches, and constipation as well.
RockTape is another method used at Westfield Health & Rehabilitation to help ease the pain and stress of the pregnant body.

Dr. Carnucci has a really great practice. His staff is extremely friendly and took the time to make me feel like they truly cared about me. I grew up in Cranford and whenever I travel back home I make sure to stop to see Dr. Carnucci’s for an adjustment. I highly recommend his practice to anyone who needs chiropractic care or physical therapy.*

This is a one stop wellness center. Dr Todd is outstanding. They now offer acupuncture ( I was a skeptic…no longer). Their physical therapist is excellent. As needed you can get an appointment with several pain management specialists. The office staff is friendly and will try their best to make appointments to fit the lives of the busy man or woman. They have the spinal decompression which will offer tremendous relieve to lower back pain, bulging discs, herniated disc, and sciatica…and I am a walking testament to that. I highly recommend this Doctor and the entire staff.*
