Prenatal Chiropractic FAQs

Pregnancy is a special and happy time in your life, however, it can also lead to discomfort due to body changes. At Foundation Chiropractic in Auburn, WA, we provide chiropractic adjustments to help improve your nervous system function which can lead to better health and healing. Before visiting us, take a look at some frequently asked questions regarding prenatal chiropractic care below:


Is Chiropractic Care Safe During Pregnancy?

Chiropractic care can be done during pregnancy. Our chiropractors are specially trained in prenatal adjustments and techniques. Additionally, the adjustments are also modified to provide comfort and ease.

When Should Prenatal Care Begin?

Ideally, chiropractic care should begin before conception to ensure proper spinal alignment and nervous system function. Regular chiropractic visits can then continue throughout pregnancy to address new challenges and keep both the expecting mom's body and baby in the best position for delivery.

How Can Chiropractic Care Help with Pregnancy Discomfort?

Chiropractic care may help to relieve common pregnancy pains, such as back and neck aches, joint stiffness, sciatica, and rib discomfort by re-aligning the spine and pelvis. Gentle adjustments, massage therapy, and stretches may also help address discomfort.

Can Chiropractic Treatments Help with Baby Position for Birth?

Aligning the mother’s pelvis properly can help encourage the baby to naturally move into the best position as the due date approaches. Specific exercises that can help with the position may also be recommended. We can discuss certain exercises with you that you can implement into your daily routine.

Does Chiropractic Care Help with Labor?

Chiropractic care may help make the delivery process smoother.

How Soon After Birth Should You See a Chiropractor?

It’s recommended to schedule an appointment after the delivery. Birth can put a lot of pressure on a woman’s body and chiropractic adjustments can help with recovery. We will use specific low force adjustments to help realign your spine and improve your overall health.
