Chiropractic Care for Pregnant Women

Valdosta Chiropractic and Rehab, Your Pregnancy Chiropractic Care in Valdosta

During pregnancy, a woman’s body goes through endocrinological and physiological changes to create an environment for the developing baby. A pregnant woman may experience pelvic and postural changes and an increased back curve. The baby may have trouble getting into the best delivery position if the pelvis is misaligned. That is why women need to receive chiropractic treatment during pregnancy. Our team here at Valdosta Chiropractic and Rehab is here to help your body stay in the best condition for you and your growing baby. 

What Happens to the Body During Pregnancy

As the baby grows in the womb, the weight puts pressure on several areas of the body. Additionally, the ligaments relax more, making it possible for the baby to move through the birth canal. This leads to a more curved spine, pelvic changes, and uneven weight distribution. These are some of the biggest reasons for back pain, neck pain, and injuries during pregnancy. There is also the possibility of long deliveries and breech birth.

How a Chiropractor Can Help

Our chiropractor is skilled in carrying out treatments specifically designed to help maintain the health and wellness of the spine, discs, nerves, and joints. Our treatments can help relieve lower back pain, neck pain, sciatica, and other conditions during pregnancy. Prenatal chiropractic care can also help control nausea, improve sleep quality, and maintain an overall comfortable pregnancy. Additionally, our chiropractors can help a baby in the breech position get into a proper birth position using the Webster technique.

Is Prenatal Chiropractic Care Safe?

Prenatal chiropractic care is safe for most pregnant women. However, you should always check with your OB-GYN to see if it is right for you and your child. We provide the torque release technique to help our pregnant patients with pain and muscle tension. TRT is gentle and non-invasive, making it one of the safest methods for pregnancy and children. TRT is a very targeted approach that focuses on the nervous system and provides spinal manipulation without the cracks and pops associated with chiropractor visits.
