Pregnancy Care & Chiropractic

Pregnancy Care & Chiropractic

Pregnancy is a time of remarkable change in the body. Aside from the obvious postural changes from increased pressure on the spine as the baby grows in the womb, millions of hormonal changes and chemical reactions take place, all controlled by the nervous system.

During pregnancy, it is more important than ever to maintain a healthy spine and nervous system to adequately support the changing requirements in all parts of both your body and your growing baby.

Chiropractic care is safe and effective during all stages of pregnancy when provided by a chiropractor that has been trained to work with pregnant women, as all our chiropractors are.

The benefits of chiropractic care also extend beyond pregnancy. Many women report smoother and faster deliveries and faster recovery time postpartum, as well as overall better health.


Labor and delivery can be as traumatic on an infant as it is on a mother, setting the stage for the baby’s future spine health.

Chiropractic care in children has also been shown to have positive results in treating common conditions like ear infections, headaches, and asthma. Some studies even show children who receive regular chiropractic care have stronger immune systems than children who don’t, and are generally healthier.

Chiropractic adjustments are completely safe for children when provided by a chiropractor trained in pediatrics, as all our chiropractors are.

Process of Treatment

There are no known contraindications to chiropractic care throughout pregnancy. All chiropractors are trained to work with women who are pregnant. Investing in the fertility and pregnancy wellness of women who are pregnant or trying to conceive is routine care for most chiropractors.
Some chiropractors take a specific interest in prenatal and postnatal care and seek additional training. Below represents designations of chiropractors who have taken advanced steps in working with infertility and pregnancy wellness.

Chiropractors that have been trained to work with pregnant women may use tables that adjust for a pregnant woman’s body, and they will use techniques that avoid unneeded pressure on the abdomen.
A chiropractor who is trained in the needs of women who are pregnant will also provide you with exercises and stretches that are safe to use during pregnancy.

During pregnancy, there are several physiological and endocrinological changes that occur in preparation for creating the environment for the developing baby.

The following changes can result in a misaligned spine or joints:

  • Protruding abdomen and increased back curve
  • Pelvic changes
  • Postural adaptations
    Establishing pelvic balance and alignment is another reason to obtain chiropractic care during pregnancy.
    When the pelvis is misaligned it may reduce the amount of room available for the developing baby. This restriction is called intrauterine constraint.

    Chiropractic care during pregnancy can provide benefits for women who are pregnant.

    Potential benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy include:

  • Maintaining a healthier pregnancy
  • Controlling symptoms of nausea
  • Reducing the time of labor and delivery
  • Relieving back, neck or joint pain
  • Preventing a potential cesarean delivery
  • As more women are seeking the benefits of chiropractic care throughout pregnancy, more health care providers are seeking trained doctors of chiropractic in their communities to refer their pregnant patients to.
    Discuss these options with your health care provider. If they are not yet familiar with chiropractic care in pregnancy, ask them to find out more about its many benefits.
    Most importantly, seek options that support your body’s natural abilities to function and find a team of providers who are respectful of your choices.
