Chiropractic Care and Pregnancy

Chiropractic can be helpful through all stages of pregnancy. During this period the body goes through rapid hormonal, postural and weight changes, causing many pregnant women to experience low back pain. As the baby grows, more weight is carried forward on the body. This leads to increase sway in the lumbar spine which combines with ligament laxity to increase stress on the spine.

Special precautions are taken when adjusting pregnant women. Modifications, such as a belly pillow, can make receiving chiropractic care more comfortable when you are pregnant. different techniques are used during each stage of pregnancy. Many expectant mothers find that chiropractic helps them relax and generally improves wellbeing, in addition to relieving discomfort.
