8 Benefits of Chiropractic Treatments for Expectant Mothers
Care from our prenatal chiropractors can offer significant benefits to expecting mothers which include reduced back pain, pelvic pain, increased blood flow and better nervous system function.
Prenatal care can soothe common discomforts like back pain, pelvic pain, and headaches. Gentle spinal adjustments focus on properly aligning your spinal column so the nerves are free from pressure and compression which will help with the discomforts of pregnancy.
A properly aligned spine and a stronger musculoskeletal system can lead to a boost in health during pregnancy. You will experience benefits such as reduced stress levels, improved immune response, and heightened energy levels which all contribute to a healthier pregnancy.
Gentle adjustments can have a positive effect on emotional wellness during pregnancy. This relief from discomfort and boost in overall wellness can result in decreased stress levels, an uplifted mood, and an enhanced sense of wellbeing.
Decreasing Labor and Delivery Time
Improving prenatal spinal health can foster a favorable environment for birth which can potentially result in shorter labor and delivery times. It can also make for a smoother and more comfortable birthing process.
Reduced Risk of C-Sections
Seeing a prenatal chiropractor may reduce the need for interventions, such as the dreaded cesarean sections. A properly aligned spine can help fetal positioning which may encourage a more natural birthing experience.
Improved Pelvic Balance
When a woman is pregnant your pelvic bones are under a lot of stress. Much of the pain experienced during pregnancy is because the pelvic bones are out of balance and alignment with the spine. Chiropractors can address issues like pubic symphysis dysfunction and round ligament pain. By focusing on reducing imbalances and restoring alignment this can lead to improved comfort and mobility.
Holistic and Non-Invasive Approach
Adjustments can support the nervous system which is the body's main communication system. By ensuring proper prenatal spinal alignment, the nervous system function will be better optimized. This has the potential to reduce issues such as nausea, headaches, and sciatic pain.
Reduced Risk of C-Sections
Care from a prenatal chiropractor offers a holistic and non-invasive means of helping expectant mothers' manage pain from pregnancy. It focuses on restoring your body's natural healing powers without the need for drugs or invasive procedures.
WE BELIEVE IN EDUCATING OUR PATIENTS
LEARN MORE ABOUT PREGNANCY & CHIROPRACTIC
Is Chiropractic Care Safe During Pregnancy?
This is the most common question and concern from our expectant patients and we want to assure you treatments from our highly trained prenatal chiropractors are deemed safe and effective during pregnancy. It’s important to note that we encourage open communication between the expectant mother, your obstetrician, and our chiropractors for the assurance of safety. Your obstetrician’s approval is especially important if you have specific conditions or complications that might call for caution.
Our chiropractors use gentle techniques and proper equipment to accommodate a woman’s pregnant body to prevent undue pressure on the abdomen. While chiropractic adjustments during pregnancy are typically safe, we encourage you to listen to your body and voice any discomfort or concerns during treatments. Chiropractic care is a safe and a beneficial option for easing pregnancy related discomforts.
Pregnancy Related Conditions We Treat
Our pregnancy chiropractors can address a range of common pregnancy related conditions. Here are some of the conditions that we have helped treat our patients with:
- Back Pain: Pregnancy often leads to increased stress on the spine which results in lower back pain. Spinal adjustments can help alleviate this discomfort by restoring proper alignment and reducing pressure on the nerves.
- Pelvic Pain: The shifting of pelvic bones and increased joint laxity during pregnancy can cause pelvic pain. We focus on aligning the pelvis, reducing pain, and promoting better overall pelvic function.
- Sciatica: The pressure on the sciatic nerve can lead to radiating pain in the lower back, buttocks, and legs. Our unique method can relieve the compression on the nerve which will provide some relief from sciatic pain.
- Round Ligament Pain: Round ligament pain occurs due to the stretching of the ligaments that support the uterus. Chiropractic care from our doctors can help reduce discomfort by addressing any misalignments that may contribute to the pain.
- Pubic Symphysis Dysfunction: This condition involves pain and instability in the pelvic region. Spinal adjustments can help realign the pelvis and alleviate the discomfort.
By promoting proper alignment, reducing nerve interference, and improving overall musculoskeletal function, our chiropractors in New Berlin, Wisconsin can effectively alleviate these pregnancy discomfort. We offer a safe and non-invasive approach to helping mothers have a more comfortable and enjoyable pregnancy experience.
COMMON QUESTIONS MOTHERS ASK
A prenatal chiropractor is trained in applying controlled pressure, techniques of stretching, and can make specific adjustments that are safe and effective for pregnant women.

You can start chiropractic treatment at any stage in your pregnancy. Many pregnant women will start treatment during their first trimester and some will seek treatment during the end of their second trimester, when they begin to experience severe round ligament or lower lumbar pain.

Pregnant women tend to find the adjustment comfortable. The technique involves a gentle, downward thrust to the side of the pelvis.
