Pregnancy causes many changes in the female body which prenatal chiropractic care can help with. Some of these changes cause pain, discomfort, and can put you at risk for longer labor and delivery times, as well as complications. Chiropractors use natural, non-invasive methods to reduce some of the symptoms of pregnancy and to help both the experiences of pregnancy and labor go more smoothly. If you’re looking for a way to find relief from pregnancy symptoms or you want to ensure that your body is in good condition for a healthy birth and that there is enough room for the fetus to develop, prenatal chiropractic care can help.

Our chiropractors are trained to work with pregnant people and use techniques that will benefit you and avoid placing undue pressure on your abdomen. There are a number of different treatments and prenatal chiropractic massages which can help you have a healthier and safer pregnancy. At Health & Wellness Clinic, we’re dedicated to providing pregnant people with prenatal chiropractic care that will make their pregnancy easier.
Is Chiropractic Care Safe During Pregnancy?
When you become pregnant, many things that you used to be able to do freely are advised against. Chiropractic care is not one of them. In fact, many doctors will recommend their pregnant patients to see chiropractors during their pregnancy due to the many benefits of prenatal chiropractic care. It’s important to ensure you see chiropractors like the team at Health & Wellness Clinic who are experienced in working with pregnant people, to ensure safe chiropractic care during this transitional time in your life that places so much pressure on your body.
Why Do Pregnant People See Chiropractors?
There are many reasons why people see chiropractors during pregnancy. Your body is undergoing a lot of changes, after all. Chiropractic care helps alleviate some of the pains that come with pregnancy as well as fix alignment issues pregnancy can cause.
Some of the reasons pregnant people often come to Health & Wellness Clinic for chiropractic care include:
- Protruding abdomen
- Pelvic changes
- Increased back curve
- Changes in posture
Regular chiropractic visits during your pregnancy can help these issues. Chiropractic treatments during pregnancy realign your spine, which can help your posture and ensure your body functions properly. If your body becomes misaligned during pregnancy, this not only causes pain, but can also affect your ability to have a natural birth and how much room the fetus has to develop. Regardless of whether you are planning on a natural birth or not, chiropractic care during pregnancy lowers your risk of pain and helps your pregnancy go smoother.
The Benefits Of Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy
Chiropractic care during pregnancy keeps your pregnancy as complication-free as possible. The professional chiropractors at Health & Wellness Clinic will be able to keep your body in alignment, alleviate your pain, and assist in keeping your body working properly. With how much stress and strain pregnancy places on your body, it’s generally recommended that you see a chiropractor at least monthly during your pregnancy, although this can vary on a case-by-case basis.
Seeing a chiropractor during pregnancy offers additional benefits. Many pregnant people who come to Health & Wellness Clinic during their pregnancies report that it’s helped with symptoms such as controlling nausea, helped the overall pregnancy be healthier, reduced their labor and delivery times, and prevented unwanted c-sections.
