Pregnancy Q & A

Is chiropractic care safe during pregnancy?

Receiving chiropractic care during pregnancy is completely safe. Chiropractic care will also help alleviate symptoms of pain and fatigue caused during pregnancy. Once these have been relieved, it will allow you to remain as healthy as possible during your pregnancy for a smooth delivery of your baby.

What are the benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy?

Receiving chiropractic adjustments and massage therapy on a regular basis for the duration of your pregnancy will help ease back and neck pain, nausea, and overall discomfort. As your uterus and abdomen expand to hold the growing baby, it puts added pressure on your lower vertebrae, misaligns your pelvis, and is sometimes responsible for sciatica. Having your pelvis and spine adjusted will keep your body in proper alignment, actually helping to reduce the symptoms of pregnancy. Regular chiropractic care can also help you relax, which is great for both you and your baby.

Can I receive chiropractic adjustments in my eighth month of pregnancy?

You can safely receive chiropractic adjustments well into your eighth month of pregnancy. There are also many benefits to getting spinal adjustments in the eighth month of pregnancy. This includes relieving discomfort, reduction in breech births, and a less complicated delivery. Many women decide to get adjustments late into their pregnancies to help in the movement of their baby’s head down into proper position for vaginal childbirth.

Will chiropractic care help with my nausea?

Nausea is a big complaint related to pregnancy. Some women will feel nauseous at the start of their pregnancy, where others feel it all the way throughout the entire term. Receiving chiropractic adjustments will keep your spine and pelvis in proper alignment. This will help ease upset stomachs and nausea related to pregnancy.
