Chiropractic and Pregnancy

Chiropractic helps the body’s ability to function and adapt. During pregnancy, the body goes through many changes to prepare itself for the growing baby and to get ready for birth. Chiropractic focuses on the alignment and balance of the body including the musculoskeletal and nervous system of the pelvis. Proper alignment of the can help the mother have an easier pregnancy, and can ease the birthing process.

Benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy:
  • Restoration of balance in the pelvic bony structures, muscles and ligaments
  • Decreases pain caused by improper biomechanics
  • Reduces interference to the nervous system, which controls all of the organs and body functions
  • Pelvic balance allowing the baby room to develop with minimal restrictions
  • Potential for an easier delivery
Reasons to be under chiropractic care while pregnant:
  • Low Back pain
  • Headaches
  • SI Joint Pain

  • For overall, improvement in biomechanics for a more pain free pregnancy.
