Is Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy Safe?

Chiropractic care is safe for you and your unborn baby. When it comes to the mother, prenatal chiropractic care extends further than simply resolving low back pain. Our main goal is to reduce overall interference within the nervous system, allowing for better alignment, healthier balance, and increased comfort during pregnancy.

In the unborn infant, the health of the mother is crucial. If the mother’s body is aligned and relaxed, including proper pelvic positioning, the baby can pass through the birth canal much more easily—ultimately allowing for a safer, more comfortable labor and delivery.

Common Benefits of Pediatric Chiropractic Care

From newborn babies and toddlers to developing young children and active older children, chiropractic care can benefit pediatric patients of all ages. Among colic and ear infections, chiropractic care has also been known to decrease the effects of, and even resolve, several different ailments, including

  • Poor posture
  • Weakened immune system
  • Constipation
  • Bed-wetting
  • Torticollis
  • Behavioral issues
  • Developmental problems

If your child is suffering from one of the complications mentioned above or an unlisted symptom, we are here to help. We proudly offer corrective care, preventative care and maintenance care to all those in need. Please do not hesitate to contact us to learn more about the advantages of pediatric chiropractic care.

Gentle Techniques

Unlike general adult adjustments, prenatal and pediatric adjustments are incredibly gentle. During prenatal adjustments, the mother’s body remains neutral, never requiring any twisting of the abdomen. Similarly, pediatric adjustments are often made with no more pressure than one would place on their eyelid.
