Chiropractic Care for Pregnant Women

Many pregnant women experience aches and pains in their lower back and hips as their baby grows. It begs the question: how does a mother-to-be find relief? There are natural remedies to combat pregnancy discomforts. One such holistic remedy is seeing a chiropractor for safe manipulations and adjustments. According to the American Pregnancy Association, “There are no known contraindications to chiropractic care throughout pregnancy. All chiropractors are trained to work with women who are pregnant. Investing in the fertility and pregnancy wellness of women who are pregnant or trying to conceive is routine care for most chiropractors.” Chiropractors have been trained to work with pregnant women and some even use special tables designed for pregnant women. Chiropractors pay careful attention to not putting any unnecessary pressure on a pregnant woman’s abdomen. They may also provide specific stretches or exercises that are safe to perform at home.

Regular chiropractic care during pregnancy has many benefits. These include:

  • Relief from neck, back, and joint pain
  • Controlling symptoms of nausea
  • Reducing labor and delivery time
  • Preventing a cesarean delivery
  • Maintaining the health of the fetus and mother

During pregnancy, there are many changes that are happening inside a woman’s body in order to prepare for the growing baby. These include:

  • Misaligned spine or joints
  • Pelvic balance and alignment
  • Protruding abdomen
  • Increased back curve

Chiropractic care not only alleviates a woman’s pain associated with a growing baby but also helps provide the best environment possible for a baby to be born. For example, a pelvis that is out of alignment has the potential to restrict the amount of space the baby has to develop. Not only can this lack of space possibly lead to birth defects, but it also makes it difficult for the baby to assume a good position for delivery. Proper alignment of the pelvis lowers the chances of a woman having a more complicated delivery.

In order to have a safe and healthy delivery, it is important for all the systems of the body to work together efficiently. Chiropractic care is an excellent way to get all the systems working as one. If you are pregnant and think you could benefit from chiropractic adjustments, please contact our office. We are more than happy to walk you through what it is we do during an appointment as well as the precautions we take to ensure the safety of the mother-to-be and her baby.
