How Prenatal Chiropractic Care can Help Your Pregnancy

Is Pregnancy Chiropractic Safe?

Yes! Receiving chiropractic care during your pregnancy is safe.  Special attention and care is given to the techniques and methods used to adjust you while you are pregnant, especially if you choose a chiropractor who specializes in prenatal care.  At Ideal Family Chiropractic we do all we can to accommodate and ensure you are comfortable during your visit.  After all, you’re carrying some precious cargo.

What is Prenatal Chiropractic?

Prenatal, or pregnancy, chiropractic is simply chiropractic care you receive while pregnant.  Going to any chiropractor throughout your pregnancy is sure to be beneficial, but it is all the more beneficial if you find a chiropractor who specializes in pregnancy.  

There are specific things to consider when receiving chiropractic care while pregnant and you’ll want to find a doctor who knows what he or she is doing.  The most common and well known chiropractic certification for pregnancy is called Webster Technique.  This technique takes into account the various bodily changes your body goes through during pregnancy.

Benefits of Prenatal Chiropractic Care

There are two primary benefits of receiving chiropractic care during pregnancy.  

First, chiropractic care ensures your nervous system is working normally.  Remember that you and your baby are physically connected during pregnancy.  This means if your nervous system is working great, this translates to proper growth and development for baby.  

Second, chiropractic aligns and balances your pelvis and spine.  With proper balance of your pelvis, there is sufficient space for the baby to move and grow.  Have you ever been laying under a sheet that’s twisted? It’s uncomfortable, and this is how you can think of a developing baby in the womb.  A bonus from aligning the pelvis and spine is that many aches and pains of pregnancy are significantly less if not eliminated altogether. 

When to See a Chiropractor During Pregnancy

The sooner, the better.  If you get your nervous system and pelvis checked earlier in the pregnancy, this will help your body accommodate the baby’s needs.  If these things start off on the wrong foot, we have to play catch up.  As they say, prevention is the best medicine.  Why not prevent a problem from happening rather than try to fix something after the fact?
