Chiropractic care is a completely natural, non-invasive, and drug-free way for pregnant women to stay healthy and relieve the associated aches and pains during and after pregnancy. We have even adjusted pregnant women on the day of labor, including my wife, whom I adjusted regularly through both of her pregnancies. I also have adjusted our two daughters since birth.
Pregnancy can put stress on the body’s posture, spinal curvature, and skeletal structure, especially as the baby gets larger and heavier. Regular chiropractic adjustments can help relieve back pain and sciatica by keeping the mother’s spine in alignment, securing an easier delivery of your child.
We use special chiropractic techniques designed exclusively for pregnant women, and all adjustments are made while the patient is lying on her back—not her stomach. These treatments also get the mother’s spine, muscles, and hips in proper alignment, so that labor and childbirth can progress faster, easier, and with less pain.
Chiropractic is also essential for post-partum care. After birth, chiropractic treatments can correct any misalignments that occurred during labor and/or childbirth, and can correct posture problems and back pain resulting from breastfeeding or simply holding the baby for extended periods of time.
