Pregnancy related back pain, sciatica, and other conditions can be relieved safely with chiropractic care. Since chiropractic does not use medication, it is perfectly safe for women throughout the prenatal experience.
Pregnancy Related Conditions Chiropractic Helps
For pregnant patients, chiropractic can effectively relieve:
Back pain and hip pain – Physiological changes during pregnancy place pressure on the back and hips, causing pain. Chiropractic reduces this pressure by realigning the joints to support your wellness.
Pelvic position – The position of your pelvis naturally shifts during pregnancy. We can encourage it to shift to the optimal position for delivery, which may reduce the chances of a Caesarian.
Poor posture – As your body changes your posture will shift temporarily. Chiropractic helps you maintain a balanced posture.
Nausea – Since chiropractic boosts immune and nervous system health, it may relieve symptoms of nausea.
How Our Chiropractor Relieves Pregnancy Pain
Our chiropractor at Eastside Spine and Injury understands how to work safely with all types of bodies, including with women who are pregnant. We offer a special table for these patients, to avoid placing pressure on the abdomen.
In treatment, we focus on restoring the alignment of the spine while relieving pregnancy related aches and pains. When your spine is aligned properly, you’ll experience less back pain.
Chiropractic positively affects the whole body by soothing the nervous system, removing blockages that interfere with nerve communication, and releasing endorphins. For many patients, this means a healthier pregnancy, shorter delivery, and less joint pain, neck pain, and back pain.
We can also align your pelvis for a healthy delivery, show you stretches you can perform at home, and pass along nutrition and lifestyle tips for a healthy pregnancy and successful delivery.
