Can pregnant women see a chiropractor?

Yes! Chiropractic is a safe and healthy way to treat pain and discomfort during pregnancy. From conception to delivery, your chiropractor can help make the experience as painless as possible.

During pregnancy, a woman’s pelvis loosens and shifts. If the pelvis becomes misaligned while loosened, it can reduce the amount of room available for the developing baby, a condition known as intrauterine constraint. Likewise, a misaligned pelvis affect a mother’s ability to have a natural, non-invasive birth.

If the baby settles into a position in which its feet or buttocks are facing the birth canal, also know as breeching, many times the delivery will result in a cesarean delivery (C-Section). Chiropractic can help to balance the pelvis, to safely avoid breeching as well as intrauterine constraint. Benefits of prenatal chiropractic include:

  • Relieving back pain
  • Reduced headaches
  • Better time sleeping
  • Alleviating neck and joint pain
  • Preventing a potential C-Section
  • Controlling symptoms of nausea
  • Reducing the time of labor and delivery
