Is Chiropractic Care Safe for Pregnant Women?

In fact, it can actually improve women’s safety and the health of their pregnancies. As a natural approach to health care, it helps moms achieve better outcomes without resorting to medication.

Whole-Body Support for a Healthy Pregnancy

When you’re thinking about starting a family, you need to ensure your reproductive system is functioning at its best. That means also caring for the nerves that connect your reproductive organs to the brain and the rest of the body. A misalignment in the spine can affect the health of both the nerves and the areas that depend on those nerves.

It’s also important to care for your back and pelvis to prevent injuries and falls during pregnancy. Keeping up with your changing size and shape is tough. It’s easy to get thrown off balance. Pregnancy hormones relax your ligaments, bones, and muscles to prepare you for birth—but looser tendons can cause you to slip. You need a strong, properly functioning back to keep you agile and on your feet, so both you and your baby stay safe.

Peace of Mind From Pre-Pregnancy Examinations

We encourage all our patients considering starting a family to come in and have their nervous systems checked. We’ll make sure that they’re free from nerve interference and that the bones in their spine and pelvis are properly aligned. We pay special attention to flexibility and low-back issues, since these are areas that could cause some real pain later in pregnancy if we don’t start dealing with them now.

A healthy nerve supply to the reproductive organs ensures a greater chance of a healthy pregnancy. Pregnancy chiropractic care is not only safe for moms-to-be, but also vital for the body to function at its best while working hard to create the miracle of new life.
