Pregnancy is often described by many women as a magical time. You are bringing new life into the world and you realize that your own life is about to change forever. Beyond these emotions, though, the truth is that the body is experiencing things too. In fact, pregnancy is one of the most physically transformative experiences a human being can have.

Is Chiropractic Care Safe during Pregnancy?
Chiropractic care has been proven perfectly safe during pregnancy, granted you are being treated by a professional trained in prenatal chiropractic. In fact, using chiropractic care can actually help you have a safer pregnancy. Many of the injuries which women sustain during pregnancy are a result of stretching ligaments, weak joints, and lower back pain. Chiropractic care can help strengthen these so that your body can better support your pregnancy.
How Can Chiropractic Care Help?
Many things are happening to your body all at once during pregnancy. In order for your body to grow and transform to accommodate your baby, your body will produce ligament and joint loosening hormones. These hormones make your body a more welcoming place for your growing baby, but they can make you feel like you have lost your center of gravity and in general create a feeling of clumsiness. This is why pregnant women are prone to falls. This can also cause issues for your spine.
Chiropractic care can assist your body by bringing it back into alignment on a regular basis. Having a spinal adjustment will reduce joint pain, help with balance, and reduce tension on other muscles. Some women also report that chiropractic care during pregnancy helps with morning sickness.
Before You Go
Before beginning prenatal chiropractic care, make sure you find a provider who is trained in treating pregnant women. These practitioners will have special tables available to accommodate your body.
It is also important that you feel comfortable with the chiropractor. Many women become very self-protective during pregnancy. It is a good idea to schedule a consultation first so that you can know that this provider is a good fit for you.
