Chiropractic care is possible and safe throughout all stages of pregnancy.

Your chiropractor is trained in a wide variety of techniques to help you deal with the increased stresses of pregnancy on the body and will use safe, gentle techniques that are suitable for your condition. A woman’s body might change during pregnancy putting more or different strains on the ligaments and joints especially in the pelvis.

Those changes include the softening of ligaments, weight increase and changes to posture. That can lead to additional pressure on joints in various parts of the body, including the spine or pelvis.
