Chiropractic is concerned with the structural relationship between the spine, pelvis, and nervous system. During pregnancy a woman’s body undergoes dramatic changes, both structurally, chemically (hormones), and emotionally. Chiropractic can help make pregnancy more comfortable, more enjoyable, and prepare the body for an easier, safer birth. 

The body experiences very rapid change during pregnancy (increased weight gain, change in posture, and hormones which relax stabilizing ligaments). The changes are vital for growth and arrival of the baby, but they can also interfere with other areas of life. Common secondary conditions from this shift include aches and pain (low back, sciatica, pubic bone, tailbone, etc.), digestive disorders (reflux, heartburn, constipation, etc.), overall wellness (fatigue, sleep, emotional swings, etc.), and even disruption of north birth (baby’s position, onset or progression of birth). 

Chiropractic care is a gentle, non-invasive approach to correcting and stabilizing the spine and pelvis. Chiropractic care helps the body work better and ultimately improve quality of life and potentially birth outcomes while being completely safe throughout pregnancy. 

After the baby arrives, chiropractic is used to help the body recover and adapt to the new physical and emotional challenges of motherhood. Most of our moms also get their babies checked to determine if chiropractic can help with development and challenges like breastfeeding, digestion, comfort, sleep, and immune function.

We have hundreds of patients that tell us chiropractic made their pregnancy more enjoyable and their birth shorter and easier.
