What Is Prenatal Chiropractic Care?

Prenatal chiropractic care is a specialized branch of chiropractic care tailored to the unique needs of pregnant women. Chiropractors understand the changes women experience during pregnancy and how they affect the musculoskeletal system. Your chiropractor can utilize gentle and safe chiropractic methods to address common pregnancy-related issues, including:

  • Back pain: Prenatal adjustments can help alleviate lower back pain, sciatica, and other musculoskeletal pain associated with pregnancy.
  • Pelvic discomfort: Chiropractic care can optimize pelvic alignment and create more space for your growing baby. Doing this can make your labor and delivery safer and more comfortable.
  • Headaches: Chiropractic adjustments may improve headaches experienced during pregnancy.
  • Overall well-being: Regular chiropractic care can promote better posture, improve sleep quality, and enhance your nervous system function. All of these contribute to a healthier pregnancy overall.

Chiropractic Methods for Pregnant Women

Chiropractors utilize a variety of gentle and modified chiropractic techniques specifically designed for pregnant women. These techniques used for prenatal care include:

  • Manual adjustments: Gentle adjustments of your spine and pelvis can improve alignment and reduce tension.
  • Soft tissue therapy: Techniques like massage and trigger point therapy can relax muscles and alleviate pain.
  • Instrument adjustments: Gentle adjustments  of your spine and pelvis using a low force instrument.
