Pregnancy Chiropractic: Safe and Effective Care for Expecting Moms

Pregnancy is an exciting time, but it can also put strain on your body. Carrying a growing baby shifts your center of gravity, stresses your joints, and causes muscle tightness, often leading to back and pelvic pain. Pregnancy chiropractic care can provide safe, drug-free relief. Read on to learn about the benefits of chiropractic care at Better Health Solutions in Scottsdale during pregnancy.


What is Pregnancy Chiropractic?

Pregnancy chiropractic care consists of spinal adjustments, also known as chiropractic adjustments, and alignments to relieve musculoskeletal pain, dysfunction, and back pain. Doctors of chiropractic use gentle, tailored techniques to restore proper mobility and positioning of the pelvis and spine. This eases stress on the body, optimizes the baby’s position, and allows nerves to function normally.

Is Chiropractic Safe During Pregnancy?

Chiropractic care is very safe during pregnancy. Chiropractors are specially trained to work with expecting women and the unique changes happening in their bodies. They use modified tables and techniques to ensure the comfort and safety of mothers and babies. There is no increased risk of preterm birth or other problems.

What Are the Benefits?

Pregnancy chiropractic offers many advantages:

  • Relieves back, hip, and pelvic pain
  • Decreases pain from radiculopathy and sciatica
  • Improves posture and alignment
  • Optimizes baby positioning for birth
  • Reduces time in labor and delivery
  • Enhances overall comfort and mobility

Chiropractic may also help with symptoms like heartburn, ankle swelling, nausea, headaches, and more by aligning the structures surrounding nerves.

When Should I Start Treatment?

It's never too early to begin pregnancy chiropractic care. Many women start regular adjustments in the second trimester to help offset common musculoskeletal symptoms. However, you can begin at any time during pregnancy. Be sure to tell your chiropractor your due date and any pregnancy concerns.

What Techniques Are Used?

Chiropractors use gentle manual and instrument adjustments modified for pregnancy. Extra cushions and wedges support you during treatment. They'll avoid pressure on the abdomen. Techniques may include the Webster technique to encourage optimal fetal positioning.
