Pregnancy is a time of many rapid changes in a woman’s body. Those changes can strain the body and create undue stress on mom and baby both. Chiropractic care during pregnancy can help alleviate mental stress and physical strain by reducing biomechanical stress in the pelvis.

Common Pregnancy Discomforts That Are Alleviated With Prenatal Chiropractic Care

Biomechanical stress of the pelvis can cause many common pregnancy-related discomforts and problems including:

  • Back Pain.
  • Sciatic Nerve Pain.
  • Round Ligament Pain and Tension.
  • Nausea and Vomiting.
  • Breech Positioning.
  • Difficult Labor and Delivery.

The spine, pelvis, ligaments and tissues in and around the uterus all experience incredible strain during pregnancy. Regular prenatal chiropractic adjustments help ensure that the pelvis is optimally balanced, the spine is aligned and supporting good posture, nerve interference is eliminated, and the soft tissues and ligaments are relaxed enough to accommodate a growing baby, allowing the baby to move freely and attain the vertex position as the due date nears.

Prenatal chiropractic care focuses on supporting mothers in experiencing a healthy pregnancy. We believe very strongly that the female body is ideally adapted to pregnancy and childbirth, but sometimes it needs a little nudge to be reminded of that. Chiropractic care is geared towards restoring the body to optimal posture and positioning so that we can step back and let nature take its course.

Experience A Healthy Pregnancy With Prenatal Chiropractic Care

Prenatal chiropractic care is ideal for pregnant women because it is safe, non-invasive, drug-free, and long-lasting. By restoring proper alignment to the spine and pelvis, the body is better able to adapt to the changes pregnancy brings with it, keeping mom and baby healthy and happy!
