How Can Chiropractic Care Help During Pregnancy?

There are many hormonal and physical changes you’ll experience during your pregnancy that can be made easier to deal with through chiropractic care. Some of these will have an impact on your posture and comfort. As your baby becomes heavier, your center of gravity shifts, and your posture adjusts accordingly. These physical changes during your pregnancy can lead to a misaligned spine or joints – conditions a chiropractor can assist in correcting.

Other uncomfortable changes during pregnancy might include: a protruding abdomen resulting in an increased curve of your back, changes to your pelvis as your body begins to prepare for labor and even adaptations to your posture. The proper application of chiropractic care will make this time much easier for you.

Regular visits to a chiropractor during your pregnancy can address these issues. Plus, adjustments designed to re-establish balance and alignment to your pelvis and spine will do more than just make you feel better.

In addition, regular chiropractic care while you’re pregnant can offer the following benefits: help you maintain a healthier, more comfortable pregnancy, relieving pain in the back, neck, hips, and joints. It can also help to control symptoms of nausea

 

A pelvis that’s out of alignment can restrict the amount of space available to your developing baby. When an external force obstructs your growing baby’s normal movements, it’s known, in the chiropractic world, as intrauterine constraint. This can lead to birth defects.

Another complication that a misaligned pelvis may pose relates to delivery. When the pelvis is out of alignment, it can make it hard for your baby to move into the best position to be born, which is rear-facing, head down. Other evidence points to improved outcomes in labor and delivery for women who’ve received chiropractic care during their pregnancy. In fact, it may help reduce the length of time you’re in labor.

Testimonials

  • "I have had sciatic pain for years! throwing hundreds of dollars for massages that only temporarily helped. Dr. Scharf understood sciatic and back pain personally and has helped me find a long term solution. I have less pain, more energy and a better understanding of how to manage my sciatic. This is the office to go to if you want long term relief."

  • "Thank you Dr. Scharf and Breinn! My neck feels so much better than when I first came in about 3 months ago. What a difference and I have been to many great chiropractors. None have been able to bring progressively better & better long last relief to my neck. The traction REALLY made a big difference!"
