Pregnancy & Chiropractic
Question: Is Chiropractic safe during Pregnancy?
Question: Why would Pregnant Women see a Chiropractor?
Answer: Pregnancy is a process that prepares a woman's body to facilitate the delivery of the precious cargo that is growing in her womb. During this process, the pregnant woman may feel some pain and/or discomfort as her body adapts to these changes, which include hormonal, as well as posture and balance changes.
Chiropractors often see women wanting some relief from the discomfort they're experiencing with their pregnancy. Chiropractic adjustments free up the spine from misalignments and pinched nerves to allow greater mobility and comfort to the pregnant woman.
Question: Are Pregnant Women adjusted the same way as everyone?
Answer: Depending on comfort, Chiropractic adjustments for a pregnant woman is usually the same as any other patient. Alternative forms of spinal adjustments, including very low-force techniques, can be applied to have the same effect as the regular adjustments.
