What to Expect From Prenatal Chiropractic Treatments

During prenatal chiropractic adjustments, we use modified techniques to ensure your comfort and safety. During each session, we will help to align your spine to account for your changing body and shifting center of gravity. Additionally, we’ll focus on strength and flexibility to help you avoid injuries stemming from the softening of ligaments that occurs due to hormonal changes during pregnancy.

How Do Chiropractic Adjustments Help During Pregnancy?

For many expectant mothers, chiropractic care during pregnancy can help with preventing back pain, hip pain and general aches and pains. In addition to helping to establish pelvic balance, it can also help with creating balance and flexibility throughout the body. Many women also find that chiropractic care helps to reduce nausea and “morning sickness” by bringing the digestive system in balance by addressing any blockages or imbalances within the central nervous system that could be affecting digestion. For many women, the most important reason to see a chiropractor during pregnancy is to change a baby’s position out of the breech position using the Webster Technique. In studies, doctors have reported a success rate of 82 percent when using the Webster Technique to relieve musculoskeletal causes of intrauterine constraint. There is also evidence that prenatal chiropractic care can help to reduce both the intensity and duration of labor.
