It is entirely safe to visit a chiropractor during pregnancy. Pregnancy can cause your body to experience new and unfamiliar aches and pains in your muscles and joints. Seeing a chiropractor during pregnancy can help alleviate these new pains, especially if you already had back pain before becoming pregnant.
There are several benefits to receiving chiropractic treatment while pregnant, such as reducing discomfort, positioning the baby for labor, and improving your walking ability.
BENEFITS OF CHIROPRACTIC CARE DURING PREGNANCY:
- Establishing pelvic alignment and balance soothes pain for you and your baby.
- Positioning the baby correctly for a smoother labor and delivery is essential. A balanced pelvis can increase the chances of a baby moving into the optimal position for birth, reducing the likelihood of a difficult labor.
- Expectant mothers report improved walking due to hip joint mobility.
