I am often asked if it is ok to get chiropractic care during pregnancy.
And my answer to this question is not only is it ok, but I highly recommend it for all women who are pregnant and those who are planning to get pregnant.
Because …. here are some of the benefits of getting chiropractic treatments during your pregnancy.
First of all it will help you to maintain good spinal posture which is important for the delivery process because the extra weight out front can force your spine into an unfavorable position; your lower back and pelvis especially.
And, it can help with other common pregnancy symptoms such as neck pain, pain between the shoulder blades, lower back pain, sciatic leg pains, swelling/numbness/tingling in the hands and feet, heartburn/indigestion, fatigue and some moms even find it helps with morning sickness.
Aside from these benefits, a lot of moms report that their delivery process was a lot easier and quicker when getting chiropractic care and I have notice the post-partum recovery time can be a lot shorter as well.
As far as safety goes, we use special, gentler adjusting techniques for mothers-to-be and we even have a special technique for turning babies that are in the breech position.
So, if you are pregnant and not enjoying it due to nagging aches and pains, or you are planning on starting a family and you want to get into the best shape possible, give us a call. We can help.
