Pregnancy Chiropractic Care

Anderson Chiropractic Offers Pregnancy Chiropractic Adjustments

Pregnant woman

If you're expecting a child and have been sounding out other moms about their prenatal experiences, you may have been surprised to hear that they frequented a chiropractor during early pregnancy or even in the third trimester. In fact, chiropractic care during pregnancy offers some important benefits to mother and baby alike. That's why we're proud to offer safe, comfortable pregnancy chiropractic adjustments here at Anderson Chiropractic in Sacramento CA.

Pain-Relieving Benefits of Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy

If there was ever a time when you could use the soothing services of a chiropractor, it's during the nine months of pregnancy -- especially once the body begins to change dramatically to accommodate the developing fetus. The expanding belly forces you to adopt an unnatural posture. This, in turn, leads to the aches and pains of muscular strain and compressed nerves. Impaired nerve function may only increase your tendency toward headaches, mood swings, nausea, and fluid retention. Chiropractic care during pregnancy can greatly relieve these discomforts.

By gently adjusting imbalances in your musculoskeletal alignment, we can keep your nervous system working properly while also normalizing unequal stresses on muscle groups. Additionally, we may recommend physiotherapy, nutritional changes, and other best practices to complement your chiropractic sessions.

Is Chiropractic Safe During Pregnancy?

One question we commonly hear is, "Is chiropractic safe during pregnancy?" When administered by skilled, experienced practitioners such as our own Dr. Greg Anderson, D.C., the answer is yes. It's so safe that the ICPA (International Chiropractic Pediatric Association) actually recommends that women pursue this form of care throughout their pregnancy.

While you'll want to start seeing our chiropractor during early pregnancy, the third-trimester sessions may be especially important both for you and for your baby. That's because the fetus must rotate within the womb for a head-first delivery during this phase of pregnancy. Unfortunately, instability in the sacral spine and pelvic ligaments can make this motion difficult or impossible, increasing the chances that you might have to deliver via Cesarian section. Strategic spinal adjustments can help assure a clear path for the fetus to perform this necessary maneuver, allowing for a normal, healthy, uncomplicated delivery by natural means.
