What Is Prenatal Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractic care is often referred to in terms of specific ailments or wellness strategies, as in "senior chiropractic care" or "pediatric chiropractic care." Prenatal chiropractic care specifically addresses the physical changes, discomforts, and potential health challenges that accompany pregnancy. If you've been pregnant before, you may already know some of these issues all too well, including:

  • Back and neck pain - The enlargement of the belly during pregnancy shifts your center of gravity, forcing the spine to compensate by altering your posture. This change, along with pregnancy-related weight gain, can cause low back pain as well as neck pain.
  • Headaches - The changes in your neck posture can create muscle spasms, leading to recurring tension headaches.
  • Extremity symptoms - Pinched nerves may cause you to experience neurological symptoms in your arms or legs.
  • Nausea - As pregnancy develops, many expectant mothers experience nausea.

The physical changes of pregnancy don't just affect your comfort -- they have the potential to affect your fetus's well-being. By the third trimester, the ligaments in your pelvis have loosened to ease delivery. But this loosening can also allow your lower spine to drift out of alignment. A misalignment in this area could keep your baby from turning around in the uterus, resulting in a breech birth.

Symptoms Treated by Our Prenatal Chiropractor

Our prenatal chiropractor can administer spinal adjustments to reduce the amount of discomfort you might otherwise experience during pregnancy. A more balanced body means less muscular tension. Our ability to take pressure off of nerves eases neurological symptoms while also improving your overall wellness and systemic function.

A Gentle, Safe, Specialized Form of Chiropractic Care

Prenatal chiropractic care uses especially gentle techniques, including a special table to accommodate pregnant bodies. This makes our treatments safe for mothers and for babies alike. In fact, our ability to make sure your lower spine and pelvis are properly aligned can help your baby experience a safer, easier delivery. The American Pregnancy Association agrees that chiropractic care during pregnancy can be highly beneficial.

  • ""I first came to Atlantic Chiropractic 5 years ago with a pinched nerve in my neck. I was in so much pain, I could not even move my head. Dr. Eric diagnosed the problem almost immediately and confirmed it with the EMG. He set up a treatment plan and told me I probably would not feel significant relief for a good two weeks. I appreciated his thoroughness, expertise, and honesty. As it turned out, I was actually pain free in one week! I always refer my friends to Dr. Eric/Atlantic Chiropractic and Rehabilitation for the most trusted effective chiropractic care.""
