Chiropractic treatments can promote a healthy, stress-free pregnancy by alleviating joint pain, muscle aches and nausea. Our doctors are trained to accommodate the special needs of pregnant women. Treatments are modified to each and every pregnancy so that adjustments are comfortable, safe, and effective.
Misaligned joints may be caused by the massive changes that occur during a pregnancy. Weight gain, changes to the alignment of the pelvis, changes to posture, and increased curvature of the back all contribute to pain and discomfort.
Chiropractic and acupuncture treatments can be especially effective in reducing the effects of these physical stresses on the body, but can also help to decrease the effects of mental and emotional stress. Stress to the uterus and its supporting ligaments may be reduced by establishing balance to the pelvis. Maintaining a healthy spinal alignment will assist the body in functioning more effectively during this significant time of change. In addition, both chiropractic adjustments and acupuncture support a healthier, easier birthing and labor process for mom and baby.
