Chiropractic Care and Pregnancy

By Ashley Chapman

Becoming pregnant can be one of the most exciting times in your life. However, everyone's pregnancy is different and you may find that you need more help with the discomfort and pain. If you have never visited a chiropractor, it may be intimidating now that you are expecting. Read more to find out what pain and discomfort you might be experiencing and how a chiropractor may help.

What is a Chiropractor?

If you have not visited a chiropractor before, It is important to remember that chiropractic care is safe during pregnancy. Chiropractors use manipulations and adjustments to increase flexibility in joints and to reduce pain. These adjustments are specific to each individual patient. The most common reason why someone may visit a chiropractor is to help treat pain and/or discomfort in the neck, back or joint regions.

Pregnancy Changes 

When it comes to pregnancy, every woman will have a different experience. However, there are some commonalities when it comes to what may occur. Changes in the body may include weight gain, posture change and discomfort in the pelvic region. As your body is changing to accommodate a baby, visiting a chiropractor can give relief throughout your pregnancy.

Benefits to Visiting a Chiropractor

Lower back pain and pelvic discomfort are the two main reasons pregnant women visit a chiropractor. Chiropractors offer treatments that are gentle but effective for pain during pregnancy. Some of these methods include joint mobilization, soft tissue treatment and therapeutic exercises.

If your baby is not in an ideal birthing position (such as breech), chiropractors can help determine their position and give adjustments to help change the baby's position.

Overall Health During Pregnancy 

Along with pain treatment, seeing a chiropractor can improve your overall health. Chiropractors can help with your eating regimen at home to maintain a healthy pregnancy weight. They can also offer suggestions for exercises and stretching that you can do at home.
