Frequently Asked Questions
Is Chiropractic Care Safe During Pregnancy?
Chiropractic care is typically a safe and effective practice during pregnancy. Routine Chiropractic Care can help manage pain in your back, hips, and joints, as well as establish pelvic balance. This provides your baby with as much space as possible throughout the course of your pregnancy.
How Often Should I Get Treated While Pregnant?
Women should typically see a Chiropractor once a month during the first trimester, and then every two or three weeks until the last month of pregnancy or so. After pregnancy, once a week when any discomforts occur.
Can a Chiropractor Induce Labor?
Yes, Chiropractic Care increases the odds of having a natural birth experience. It relaxes the floor of the pelvis and returns it to balanced alignment.
Can a Chiropractor Hurt My Unborn Baby?
There’s no research to suggest chiropractic care presents health risks to a pregnant woman or her fetus. Chiropractic treatment is an option to treat pain. It is taken as a better alternative for pregnant women because many pain medications could adversely affect their baby.
How Far Along in Pregnancy Should I Seek Care?
The earlier you prepare, the better your body for pregnancy. There’s no limit to how early on you can start chiropractic care. This form of care can benefit even women who start as late as 39 weeks.
What About Massage During Pregnancy?
Some say that the greatest benefit of prenatal massage may be the drug-free pain relief regular massage can offer. Our doctor may suggest you include massage, physical therapy, home exercises, nutritional counseling and other wellness services as part of your plan throughout pregnancy.
