Pregnancy and Chiropractic

Chiropractic care is focused on spinal health and maintaining that spinal health without the use of medication or surgery. Chiropractors manually adjust misaligned parts of the body, which reduces the stress on the body and promotes holistic health. Because of the many benefits of chiropractic care, many people can benefit from chiropractic care. In fact, pregnant women can undergo chiropractic treatment as well.

Nearly all chiropractors receive training with pregnant women. There are even some chiropractors that specialize in the care of pregnant women.

  • DACCP – Diplomate with ICPA (International Chiropractic Pediatric Association) – highest level of training
  • CACCP – Certified with the ICPA – advanced training
  • Member of ICPA reflecting special interest
  • Webster Certified – trained to work specifically with pelvic balance in pregnancy

Chiropractors trained especially for pregnant women will use special tables that conform to a pregnant woman’s body. They will also use techniques that reduces the amount of pressure placed on the abdomen during manipulations.

Why should women have chiropractic treatment during a pregnancy?

The pelvis may shift in alignment during pregnancy. When the pelvis is misaligned, this results in reduced room for the baby to grow. This is called a intrauterine constraint. When this happens, it reduces the chances of a natural childbirth and increases the chances of a c-section, which is invasive and not recommended if possible.

The mother also goes through other physical changes such as loose ligaments and uneven weight distribution on the body. This can cause a lot of undue stress on the body, especially the spine and surrounding muscles. Chiropractic treatment focuses on the whole body.  Keeping your spine aligned properly helps the central nervous system, which maintains the health of the entire body during the pregnancy.

The chiropractor might also give you exercises to do at home that are safe to use during the pregnancy. He may recommend complementary services such as massage therapy or acupuncture. He might even recommend prenatal vitamins for overall health.

These are some of the other benefits of having chiropractic treatment during your pregnancy:

  • 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

Before undergoing chiropractic treatment, you should talk to your ob-gyn to make sure that your health won’t be compromised in any way.
