Pregnancy and Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic is a gentle, safe and effective way for management of pregnancy-related pains. In preparation for creating the environment for the developing baby, the following changes may result in misaligned spine or joints: Protruding abdomen and increased back curve, pelvic changes, and postural adaptations.
Establishing pelvic balance and alignment is very important to create room for the developing baby. A misaligned pelvis may make it difficult for the baby to get into the best possible position for delivery.
Potential benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy may include:
- Maintaining a healthier pregnancy
- Controlling symptoms of nausea
- Reducing labor and delivery time
- Relieving back, neck or joint pain
