Pregnancy Chiropractic Care

Healthy Mom, Healthy Baby

Focusing on your child’s health begins during your pregnancy. At Vital Connection Chiropractic, we believe that chiropractic care is a vital component of having a successful pregnancy experience and delivery for both a mom and her baby.

Regular chiropractic adjustments can help you avoid the many everyday stresses of pregnancy that surround you. Prenatal chiropractic care can offer mothers benefits such as mobility, flexibility, the relief of back pain and the alignment of the pelvis, among numerous others. By aiding in your body’s ability to self-heal, you can feel incredible and have the best possible birth.

As a pregnancy develops, stress is increasingly placed on the body, causing incredible discomfort for some women. A woman’s center of gravity immediately begins to shift forward during pregnancy. Although a woman’s posterior section of the pelvis has the capacity and depth enabling her to carry a baby, the displaced weight still increases stress on her joints. As the baby gets bigger, a woman’s weight continues to project forward, curving more her lower back and placing extra stress on the spinal discs.

Towards the end of the pregnancy, the sciatic nerve may be irritated when the baby’s head begins pressing down on a woman’s back, legs, and buttocks.

How Chiropractic Can Help Pregnancy

Before pregnancy, a visit to Vital Connection Chiropractic can detect any imbalances in the pelvis or elsewhere that may contribute to pregnancy discomfort. During pregnancy, chiropractic care can help control symptoms of nausea, relieve back, neck or joint pain and even prevent a potential cesarean delivery. Research has also found that chiropractic adjustments can provide relief from low-back pain, muscle tensions, headaches and shoulder problems in pregnant women.

During birth, chiropractors can help assure optimum biomechanics in the hips and spine- reducing labor complications. Adjusting your body during pregnancy will help avoid unneeded pressure on the abdomen, overall reduction of undue stress to the uterus and to the supporting ligaments. Establishing pelvic balance has been shown to allow the best positioning for the fetus, therefore easing the delivery process.

Even after childbirth, in the weeks following labor and delivery, chiropractic can help realign the pelvis and spine. Your child can also benefit from pediatric visits as soon as birth to help them start their life out healthy.
