Pregnancy and Chiropractic Care

Pregnancy and Chiropractic

Pregnant woman can benefit from chiropractic care during pregnancy.

Pregnancy can be a time of joy and anticipation, but for some the experience is colored by pain, discomfort, and illness.  Pregnant women undergo many structural and hormonal changes that affect the spine, nerves, joints, ligaments, connective tissue, center of gravity, and stability, causing these symptoms of pain.

How We Can Help

Our chiropractors can ensure your spinal column, pelvis, and related structures are balanced, moving easily, and free of vertebral subluxations. This will enable the expectant mother to experience pregnancy in comfort, health, and vitality, and will set you up for being able to handle the stress of childbirth more successfully.

Read some of our most frequently asked questions about pregnancy and chiropractic and then call us for more information about how we can help you.

Is chiropractic safe for a pregnant woman and her unborn child?

Absolutely! Chiropractic is gentle and drug-free, giving the best approach to health for both mom and baby during pregnancy.

Can I see other health care providers while under chiropractic care?

Of course. There is no conflict with you continuing to see other health care practitioners throughout your pregnancy.

How late in pregnancy is it possible to get a spinal adjustment?

Anytime.  Women have even received chiropractic care during labor!

Can spinal care help postpartum depression?

Yes! According to one journal, “Postpartum depression is a rarity in patients receiving…manipulative therapy,” which is exactly what our healing care will give you.

Do I have to have a problem in pregnancy to see a chiropractor?

Not at all.  Periodic spinal checkups during pregnancy should be as common as periodic weigh-ins to ensure mother and baby’s health.
