Prenatal Chiropractic

Why Expecting Mothers Need Prenatal Chiropractic Care

As a pregnant woman, you are likely to experience pains in your lower back, neck, and hips. The pain may even become worse after childbirth. Fortunately, Dirks Chiropractic offers comprehensive prenatal chiropractic care for expecting mothers in Greenville, Washington, and Williamston. Here’s what you need to know about prenatal chiropractic care.

Chiropractic Care and Pregnancy

Prenatal chiropractic care involves our chiropractors realigning the spinal column and joints to promote health and wellness throughout the body and to reduce pain. Our treatments are safe for you and your baby, and doesn’t involve drugs or surgery. Most pregnant women find instant relief after each chiropractic session.

Unfortunately, chiropractic care is not recommended for expecting mothers who are experiencing vaginal bleeding, have placenta previa, or had an ectopic pregnancy. Before we can perform any adjustments or apply any treatments, we need to conduct a health evaluation to determine if chiropractic care is right for you. 

Why Pregnant Women Need Prenatal Chiropractic Care

Being pregnant exposes you to many hormonal and physical changes. The structure of your body will start changing, which is why you start experiencing pain in your body. During the third trimester, your baby will become heavier, thus, interfering with your posture, spine, and joints. You may experience uncomfortable changes such as:

  • A bulging abdomen that causes your back to curve
  • Poor posture
  • Changes to your pelvis to help your body prepare for the upcoming labor

Regular visits can address these issues and more. Not only does prenatal chiropractic care can help bring balance to your spine and pelvis, but it is also beneficial for your baby.
