Chiropractic Care During PregnancyThroughout pregnancy, it’s vital to take the best possible care of your body. Many women experience back and joint pain during pregnancy, which can be improved with chiropractic care. Your chiropractor can help you manage the strain on your body during pregnancy for your own health and comfort, as well as the health of your child. 

Chiropractic care is known to be safe throughout every trimester of pregnancy. There are also multiple benefits to receiving chiropractic treatment during pregnancy, including:

Better Quality of Life

Chiropractic care can significantly improve the quality of life for the mother during pregnancy. In addition to relieving pain in the back and joints, your chiropractor can help alleviate nausea and vomiting. By improving and maintaining the alignment of the spine, your chiropractic will improve the function of the nervous system which has been proven to reduce both the severity and regularity of morning sickness.   

Improved Pelvic Alignment

The alignment of the pelvis is important throughout pregnancy so that the fetus has ample room to develop. A properly aligned pelvis can also help the baby get in the ideal position for delivery. When the mother has a misaligned pelvis, the baby is more likely to have a breech or posterior position. This makes it more difficult to have a natural birth, potentially leading to c-sections or other interventions. 

Support For Good Posture

During pregnancy, some women struggle to maintain good posture. This can result in a significant arch in the back and a protruding abdomen. A large curve in the back during pregnancy can increase the risk of back pain and injury. However, by improving the alignment of the spine, your chiropractor can help you achieve the support needed to maintain good posture throughout pregnancy.
