Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy
Many women receive regular chiropractic care during pregnancy. All chiropractors are trained to work with pregnant women and the doctors in our office have received additional training in specific methods, such as low-force or gentle techniques. These are preferred by pregnant women since they experience no discomfort during the adjustment.
Is Chiropractic safe during pregnancy?
Chiropractic is a drug-free, effective, and safe treatment for both mom and baby. Treatments can help a pregnant woman better deal with the many changes that occur to the body. Our adjustments, which are designed for pregnancy, help reduce any nerve irritation in the spine, help balance the pelvis, and overall, help a woman’s body feel more at ease.
Our treatments that balance the pelvis optimize the room a baby has for development throughout pregnancy. Baby will also enjoy a greater chance of moving into the correct position for birth which can make for an easier delivery.
