Pregnancy Chiropractic

While an exciting time of life, pregnancy also is accompanied by discomfort. Many of our pregnant patients have low back pain, rib, neck and shoulder pain. Others experience latching difficulties during breastfeeding and some get morning sickness.

As taking over-the-counter medication is inadvisable during pregnancy, chiropractic care is a natural alternative that provides highly effective relief for many women.

How Do You Adjust Pregnant Women?

Gently! Sometimes, we’ll will do a side posture adjustment. In the beginning of a pregnant woman’s care, we might use a bit of Thompson or Activator Methods®. Because Activator uses an instrument it can more easily access parts of a pregnant woman’s spine while she can be sitting versus having to lie on her tummy.


When is the best time to go to a chiropractor during pregnancy?

While you can benefit from chiropractic care at any stage of pregnancy, ideally you should consider coming in when you are deciding to become pregnant.

How often should I come in during pregnancy?

It depends on the particular issues you’re experiencing and the severity of your complaint. For example, if you have frequent back pain, we may have you come in regularly during pregnancy.

How could chiropractic help?

Chiropractic care allows a mother to have a more balanced nervous system, which will, in turn, help the baby more. Your body is already undergoing incredible changes necessary to produce a living, healthy human. The aim of chiropractic adjustments is to improve the overall function and communication that occur during this period of adaptation and growth.
