Pregnancy Care

Back Pain During Pregnancy?

Most females have back pain during pregnancy. Chiropractic care during pregnancy is safe for both mother and fetus. Spinal adjustments are especially gentle during pregnancy as far less force is required to correct subluxations. This is due to the increase in hormones causing significant muscle and ligamentous relaxation. Special "adjustive" positions are also used to provide comfort and safety for both mom and fetus. There is also evidence that chiropractic care can help turn a breech baby around.

Why should I have chiropractic care during pregnancy?

Pregnant women have wonderful results with chiropractic. In keeping the pelvis properly aligned there is less stress on the ligaments that support the uterus, this leads to less pain and often to an easier birth. There can be a lot of pressure placed on the joints in the lower back due to the pregnant belly pulling it forward. This can lead to constipation, sciatica, inability to get comfortable at night and many more. Low back and pelvic misalignments can cause pubic bone pain. This can be relieved with correct alignment and few easy exercises.
