Safe Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy


Visiting a chiropractor during pregnancy is extremely safe, and recommended.

Dr. Jared Cohen is an expert when it comes to treating pregnant women. Many pregnant women have found that chiropractic adjustments provide relief from the increased low-back pain brought on by pregnancy. Chiropractic manipulation is safe for the pregnant woman and her baby and can be especially attractive to those who are trying to avoid medications in treating their back pain.

The joy and excitement of pregnancy can be a wonderful experience. An expectant mother is always preparing herself; taking her pre-natal vitamins, eating healthy, exercising, and getting plenty of rest.

As she prepares for the birth of her new baby she may begin to feel more tired, uncomfortable, and moody, especially during her second and third trimester. Visiting the chiropractor during pregnancy is a safe and gentle procedure that can help alleviate some of the discomfort and psychological changes she may be experiencing during this time.

How Can Pregnant Women Benefit From Chiropractic Adjustments?

Adjustments during pregnancy can actually help a woman maintain a healthy pregnancy. The adjustments can help control nausea as well as relieve back, neck and joint pain. Adjustments during pregnancy can sometimes prevent the use of pain medications for back pain and other inflamed areas of the body. The adjustments may possibly prevent a cesarean section, and can also reduce the time of labor and delivery. In addition, the chiropractic adjustments can assist in the prevention of a resulting premature birth following the pregnancy.

Is Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy Safe?

Yes, chiropractic care during pregnancy is gentle and safe. The systematic treatments are done by trained professionals, and individuals whom are educated in order to execute this procedure. It has been known that several women enjoy this experience while in their first, second, and third trimesters. Women report this treatment as relaxing and replenishing, as they feel relieved after each time the procedure is completed.

Pregnancy and Lower Back Pain

As the baby begins to grow, the uterus will enlarge, causing the woman’s center of gravity to move forward. The expectant mother’s posture will begin to change, causing more discomfort in her lower back. Visiting the chiropractor during pregnancy can help to alleviate some of the discomfort, allowing the expectant mother less stress while relaxing with ease. Although fifty percent of women complain about lower back pain during a pregnancy, the adjustments made throughout the pregnancy by a trained chiropractor can begin to reduce the issues reported by pregnant women across the globe. Starting in the neck, and leading to the lower half of a woman’s back, the pain created while carrying a child can simply be slightly lifted by regularly making the decision to receive chiropractic adjustments.

Chiropractic Care Post Pregnancy

In the weeks following labor and delivery, the ligaments that loosened during the pregnancy will tend to tighten up once again, causing problems to the joints. The joints should be treated to avoid tension to the muscles, discomfort to the shoulders or ribs, and headaches.

Can Newborns Be Adjusted and Is It Safe?

Yes, from the minute a baby is born to days later, it is safe and very gentle for the baby to be adjusted. Like an adult with chiropractic needs, an inflamed or pained newborn baby can be adjusted after birth. The procedure is not aggressive nor hurts the baby, but rather helps with growth and is rather relieving to the newborn baby.

Why Would a Newborn Baby Benefit from A Chiropractic Adjustment?

Every birth is different, therefore a baby might suffer some form of birth trauma. With this being the case, a fussy baby could be suffering due to some strain and discomfort in the neck or spine area. Babies with an unbalanced spine can cause problems during the growth and development of the nervous system.

It is highly recommended that an expectant mother follow a regular routine of chiropractic care during pregnancy. It will not only be a positive and healthy experience for her, but for her baby as well. With regular chiropractic adjustments during pregnancy, the soon to be mother can expect relaxation, relief, and a smooth entry to the road called motherhood.
