Pregnancy Chiropractic at Parent Chiropractic Center

While OTC or prescription painkillers are off-limits, chiropractic is a completely safe and effective way to stay healthy and comfortable throughout your pregnancy.

At Parent Chiropractic Center we are passionate about helping moms-to-be have the pregnancy experience they want.

Benefits of Prenatal Chiropractic

Here are some of the primary benefits moms-to-be under our care can experience:

  • Alleviated back pain
  • Decreased feelings of nausea or “morning sickness”
  • Reduced labor times
  • Decreased sciatic pain
  • Improved sleep

Because childbirth can be traumatic for babies, even if it’s a natural birth, chiropractic can restore proper function of the baby’s nervous system. That’s why we recommend bringing your baby in as soon as possible after giving birth. That’s particularly the case if interventions such as forceps or a vacuum were involved.

By using extremely light pressure—about the same as making a slight indent into a soft tomato—we can remove subluxations, allowing your baby to get off to a healthy start in life.

Another benefit of postnatal adjustments is they can address a mom’s various strains and pains that come from being in different positions such as breastfeeding or toting Baby in their carrier.

Is chiropractic safe during pregnancy?

Yes, it’s very safe. We use only gentle adjustments on moms-to-be. One of the major benefits of chiropractic during pregnancy is it’s a safe and effective alternative to painkillers, which shouldn’t be taken during pregnancy.
What techniques do you use?

We provide manual ones including Flexion-Distraction as well as instrument-assisted techniques such as Activator Methods®. We also can provide Drop Table adjustments earlier in the pregnancy.
Do you offer special tables for pregnant women?

Yes, we have tables that are fully adjustable to accommodate moms-to-be so they can lie face-down, something that they otherwise can’t do during pregnancy.
