Pregnancy & Chiropractic

For most families, pregnancy is an exciting, joyous, and magical experience, but for approximately 50%-75% of pregnancies, it is also painful. It is no secret that there is additional physical stress put on the body during pregnancy, especially the low back and pelvis. This additional stress can lead to pain and difficulty completing daily tasks. To make things more complicated, there are limited options for pain management during pregnancy. One safe and effective way to help reduce pain during pregnancy is through chiropractic care. In fact, many of our pregnant patients were referred to our clinic by their birth professional!

There are many conditions chiropractic care can help with, including:

  • Low back pain
  • Pelvic pain including pain in the pubic symphysis
  • Hip pain
  • Tailbone pain
  • Sciatic nerve pain (Sciatica)
  • Headaches
  • Neck pain
  • Pain in the upper back and shoulders
  • Round ligament pain

At Chiropractic Therapeutics, our approach to chiropractic care is to help you move better so you feel better, especially during pregnancy. Chiropractic care helps the body prepare for, and adapt to, the physical changes that occur during pregnancy. Treatment is tailored to every patient but can include:

  • Gentle chiropractic adjustments to keep joints moving optimally
  • Massage techniques to reduce tight and sore muscles and ligaments
  • Fascial manipulation to help improve movement and decrease pain
  • Therapeutic exercise to help strengthen and stabilize the body
  • Home-care recommendations to help prevent pain and manage pain safely at home

Chiropractic care is safe during every stage of pregnancy and can help balance the pelvis in preparation for a smoother labor and birth. The Webster technique is one way your chiropractor will help to create this balance with a goal of reducing intra-uterine constraint so both the mother’s pelvis and the baby have room to naturally place themselves into the best position for birth. 

Pain is common during pregnancy but it may not be something you have to live with. Chiropractic care is a safe and effective way to manage or eliminate pain for a more enjoyable pregnancy and can help prepare the body for a smoother labor and birth. If you have questions about how chiropractic care can help you or a loved one, please call our office or speak to your birth provider.
