Prenatal Chiropractic

How Do You Know if You Need Prenatal Chiropractic Care?

Pregnancy is such an exciting time! We love caring for expecting moms. We know pregnancy is also really hard work. Prenatal chiropractic care can alleviate some of the symptoms expectant mothers are prone to experiencing. Chiropractic care during pregnancy helps the health of mom and baby.

We see pregnant women for a variety of reasons—some have increased pain in areas like their neck, lower back, upper back, pelvis, and pubic symphysis. Many pregnant women experience symptoms related to the nervous system such as numbness and tingling, or pain in the hands. Moms-to-be can have heartburn, headaches, and many more health challenges during their pregnancies.

Chiropractic care is a safe and natural way to provide relief and improve the health of your body.

Chiropractic care is encouraged throughout your entire pregnancy. All doctors of chiropractic care are trained to treat pregnant women. Our staff and doctors have undergone exceptional training to help you overcome any prenatal challenges.

What are the benefits of utilizing prenatal chiropractic care?

Maintaining your health as an expectant mother is important not only for your own wellbeing, but for the wellbeing of your baby.

Did you know that moms who were under chiropractic care had shorter active labor and delivery times compared to those without chiropractic care? Chiropractic care has been shown to reduce high blood pressure for expecting mothers, reduce the amount of interventions needed in delivery, and result in healthier pregnancies and deliveries. 

Is your baby in a breech position? Our doctors of chiropractic are trained in the Webster Technique, a special chiropractic analysis and treatment that is very gentle. Chiropractors can correct imbalances in the pelvis and surrounding ligaments, which creates the best opportunity for the baby to turn to the appropriate position for delivery.

Your baby’s position at birth can reduce the potential for difficult labor, which means an easier and safer delivery for mom and baby. Utilizing this technique throughout your pregnancy is one of the best ways to help prevent a breech presentation.

When should you receive prenatal chiropractic care?

Prenatal chiropractic care is safe throughout your entire pregnancy. We can modify our technique to accommodate mommas from the first days to the last days of pregnancy. Prenatal chiropractor care can assist those trying to conceive as well! Let chiropractic care lead the way for a healthy pregnancy.

Health Tip

Did you know that not all iron is created equal? Most prenatals have iron added to them, with good reason. A common side effect of iron vitamins is constipation. We carry a prenatal vitamin with a unique non-constipating iron. Be sure to ask your care provider about this as an option, and remember to drink PLENTY of water!
