The chiropractic adjustment restores nerve system function allowing the body the ability to heal and express a greater state of health and well-being. The spine protects our nervous system which is our brain, spinal cord, and nerves which controls and coordinates all functions from breathing, thinking, moving, and feeling. The goal of chiropractic is to check the spine for vertebral subluxations, misalignments that are causing nerve interference to this system.

  

Why Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy?

During pregnancy, the body goes under a rapid transformation from an increase in hormones, weight gain, and postural adaptations, which can lead to subluxations and imbalance to the sacrum and pelvis. The obstetric literature has determined that when the pelvis and sacrum are aligned properly it can help decrease dystocia (difficult birth) which can be hard on mom and baby. Chiropractic care can help improve and maintain the balance in the spine and pelvis.

Is it Safe to See a Chiropractor During Pregnancy?

Yes. As your pregnancy progresses, some chiropractic techniques will need to be modified for your comfort. Your chiropractor is aware of this and will make the necessary changes. This should include special pregnancy pillows that will accommodate your growing belly and will begin to use a technique specifically for pregnant women called the Webster technique.  

Benefits of Chiropractic During Pregnancy and After

Research has shown that chiropractic care can support women in whatever birth they decide to have. Studies have shown the following:

  • Maintain a healthier pregnancy

  • Help control symptoms of nausea

  • Reduce the time of labor and delivery

  • Reduce the usage of pain medication

  • Relieve back, neck or joint pain

  • Decrease the risk of a potential cesarean delivery

  • Decrease the risk of a difficult birth that can be hard on mom and baby

  • Help to restore balance & function post-pregnancy

When to Contact a Chiropractor

 

It’s never too early to see a chiropractor. Most women find it beneficial to start care before getting pregnant to prepare their body for birth; however, we encourage women to start care by their 3rd trimester.
