Fortunately, relief is a chiropractor visit away. Here’s what you need to know about the benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy.
Should I get chiropractic care during pregnancy?
Before you get your first chiropractic adjustment, the doctors will perform a detailed consultation and evaluation. The doctors will rule out any red flags and determine if chromatic is safe for you and your pregnancy.

What are the benefits of chiropractic care for pregnant ladies?
Hormonal and physical changes will occur during your pregnancy. Most of these changes will have an impact on your comfort and posture. As your pregnancy progress, your baby becomes heavier, your center of gravity shifts as well and your posture adjusts accordingly.
- Frequent visits to a chiropractor during your pregnancy can address these issues:
- Protruding abdomen resulting in an increased curve of your back
- Changes to your pelvis as your body begins to prepare for labor
- Changes to your posture
Most pregnant chiropractic care patients experience relief from pain. A chiropractic adjustment helps in the alignment of your pelvis and spine. Doing so will benefit your baby. We use adjusting tables to accommodate your growing belly so you can feel better. Also, we can show you effective stretches for relieving tension and easing discomfort.
- Establish a pelvic balance and alignment.
The amount room of the developing baby in your belly may be reduced if the pelvis is misaligned. If your pelvis is misaligned the baby will have difficulty in getting into the best possible position for delivery. This restriction is often called “intrauterine constraint.”
When this happens, your ability to have a natural and non-invasive birth may not be possible and may lead to c-section.
It’s important your pelvis is aligned and balanced. Our nervous system serves as the master communication system to all the body systems including the reproductive system. Keeping the spine aligned helps the entire body work more effectively.
- Back, neck or joint pain relief.
Lower back, neck, or joint pain are common issues among pregnant women and can cause discomfort. Chiropractic care is safe, effective, free from drugs and surgery. Not only it can help manage pain in your back, neck, and joints, it can also establish pelvic balance.
It can help in providing your baby with as much space as possible over the course of your pregnancy and may lead to faster, easier labor and delivery.
When to start chiropractic care:
The best time to get checked is before the pregnancy starts. The nervous system controls and coordinates the reproductive system and it is necessary to check for and correct nerve interference if present. Also by structurally aligning the spine and pelvis we are providing an optimal birthing environment that has reports quicker and easier delivery times. The more time we have to make that correction the better we will do throughout your pregnancy. We’ll provide the best chiropractic care during your pregnancy.
