Chiropractic and Pregnancy

Pregnancy can be a complex emotional roller coaster. There are physical, chemical, and emotional changes occurring. Those all add up to additional stress on the body. Fortunately, a chiropractic adjustment can positively balance those changes.

During pregnancy you carry more weight in the front than you’re used to causing postural changes. The extra stress can unbalance the pelvis. That can lead to pain in the knees, ankles, low back, mid back, and neck. Gentle chiropractic adjustments can restore balance and bio-mechanics. A balanced and properly aligned spine leads to better bio-mechanics and less pain. These benefits are just the tip of the iceberg.

Chiropractic patients receiving prenatal care report: decreased labor times, less pain with delivery, decreased nausea, and are less likely to need a C-Section. By putting the body in a better position the baby is in a better position for delivery. We want your pregnancy to be a joyous experience. That is why we highly encourage you to get adjusted during your pregnancy.
