Frequently Asked Questions About Pre/Postnatal Chiropractic Care

What is pre/postnatal chiropractic care?

Pre/postnatal chiropractic care focuses on maintaining a healthy musculoskeletal and nervous system environment for both mother and baby during pregnancy and after childbirth. It involves adjusting misaligned joints, particularly in the spine and pelvis, to reduce discomfort, improve function, and aid in safer, easier births.

Why should I consider chiropractic care during pregnancy?

Chiropractic care during pregnancy can provide numerous benefits, including relief from back, neck, or joint pain, reduction in symptoms of nausea, maintenance of a healthier pregnancy, reduction in the time of labor and delivery, and prevention of potential cesarean delivery.

Is chiropractic care safe during pregnancy?

Yes, chiropractic care is safe throughout pregnancy. Chiropractors are trained to work with pregnant women and use techniques that avoid unneeded pressure on the abdomen. Our chiropractors also provide exercises and stretches that are safe to use during pregnancy.

How can chiropractic care help postpartum recovery?

After childbirth, your body undergoes significant changes as it returns to its pre-pregnancy state. Chiropractic adjustments can help ensure the pelvis and spine are aligned properly, aid in the recovery process, reduce the risk of postpartum depression, and help the body heal more effectively and faster.

What common postnatal issues can chiropractic care address?

Postnatal chiropractic care can help with several issues, including pelvic and back pain, postural problems from feeding and carrying your baby, and helping to realign the spine after the stresses of labor and delivery.

When can I start chiropractic care after giving birth?

You can begin chiropractic care as soon as you feel comfortable after delivery. Some women seek treatment within weeks of childbirth. Consult with your healthcare provider and chiropractor to determine the best time to start postnatal care based on your personal health and recovery.

How often should I visit a chiropractor during pregnancy?

The frequency of visits can vary depending on your specific needs and the recommendations of your chiropractor. Generally, as pregnancy progresses, more frequent visits may be helpful to accommodate physical changes and comfort levels.

Can chiropractic care help position the baby for delivery?

Yes, chiropractic techniques such as the Webster Technique are specifically designed to maintain pelvic balance and alignment, which can help ensure optimal positioning of the baby for delivery, potentially making childbirth easier and safer.
