Chiropractic Care for Pregnancy

Benefits of Chiropractic Care in Pregnancy:

Benefit #1

Prepares the pelvis for an easier pregnancy and birth by creating a state of balance in (1) pelvic bony structures (2) muscles (3) ligaments

   Trimester 1 Example: loosey goosey hip/low back discomfort

   Trimester 2 Example: rib pain/abdominal spasms /transverse baby position

   Trimester 3 Example: acid reflux symptoms / walk / sleep / exercise comfortably 

Benefit #2

Chiropractic adjustments of pregnant women in their second trimester helped to relax the pelvic floor muscles.

Benefit #3

Reduces low back, hip, and pelvic pain more than standard obstetric care.


Benefit #4

Reduces muscle imbalances and localized inflammation to remove or decrease conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome and sciatica.

Benefit #5

Reduces interference to the mother’s vital nerve system which controls and        co-ordinates all of her systems and functions.

Benefit #6

Removes torsion of the ligaments that support the uterus thus potentially reducing aberrant tension to the woman’s uterus.

Benefit #7

By improving maternal function and increase ability to get into an ideal laboring position, we are decreasing the potential for unnecessary intervention.

    Concern Example: Mom's rib misalignments/muscle spasms preventing mom from taking deep breaths / shortness of breath symptoms / inability to exercise 

Benefit #9

Pelvic balance allows the baby greater room to develop without restrictions to its forming (1) cranium (2) spine (3) other fetal structures.

    Concern Example: Mom's one-sided muscle spasms preventing baby from getting into a midline position on their own / scrunched on one side 

Benefit #10
