Pregnancy Chiropractic Care: A Guide to Safe and Effective Relief During Pregnancy

Pregnancy is a beautiful journey for women, but it can also bring its fair share of discomforts and challenges. As the body goes through various changes to accommodate the growing baby, many women experience pain, discomfort, and hormonal imbalances. Fortunately, Atlantic Chiropractic and Rehabilitation in Chesapeake, VA, provides pregnancy chiropractic care to alleviate pain and discomfort associated with pregnancy. We are here to tell you about pregnancy chiropractic care and how it can help make pregnancy safer and smoother for expecting mothers.


What Is Pregnancy Chiropractic Care?

The body undergoes several structural and hormonal changes during pregnancy. As the baby grows, the mother’s center of gravity shifts. This shift causes increased stress and pressure on the spine, joints, and muscles. Changes in hormones can also affect ligaments, causing them to become more susceptible to strain and misalignment.

Pregnancy chiropractic care focuses on restoring and maintaining the proper alignment of the spine and pelvis, which in turn helps improve overall function and well-being. A pregnancy chiropractor can address joint restrictions or misalignments with gentle chiropractic adjustments. These adjustments can alleviate pregnancy-related pain and discomfort while ensuring optimal nerve function.

Prenatal Chiropractic Treatments

Our chiropractors have special training that allows them to provide safe and effective care for pregnant women. They use techniques tailored to accommodate the unique needs of expectant mothers. One of the most frequently used chiropractic treatments for pregnant women is the Webster technique. This treatment focuses on balancing the pelvis. Doing this promotes proper fetal positioning and relieves stress on the uterus and surrounding ligaments. Your chiropractor can also treat lower back pain using adjustments to realign the spine and reduce nerve pressure. They may incorporate massage therapy to improve blood circulation and regulate hormones.

Benefits of Pregnancy Chiropractic Care

Pregnancy chiropractic care provides a holistic way of promoting optimal body function and overall well-being. Chiropractic care can ensure proper alignment, significantly reducing the risk of potential complications during labor. Your chiropractor can also alleviate morning sickness and nausea by improving nerve function and lessening overall stress on the body. With targeted adjustments and prenatal massages, expecting mothers can experience a safer and smoother pregnancy and delivery.

  • ""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.""
