Guide to Chiropractic Care for Pregnant Moms

Pregnancy is a beautiful journey, but it’s also one full of aches and pains. Choosing the safest ways for yourself and your next child to relieve those aches and pains is important. Below, Dr. Fraser and the team at Spine Shot Chiropractic in Basalt, CO, answer some of the most common questions about opting for a pregnancy chiropractor during this time.

Is Visiting a Chiropractor Really Safe During Pregnancy?

It’s normal to be concerned about seeing a chiropractor. After all, most people are only aware of the forceful adjustments and those that involve twisting motions. However, there are much more gentle adjustments available that are not harmful to your pregnancy. And chiropractors are trained to provide the safest care possible through completely natural techniques.

What Benefits Can I Expect to Experience?

There are several benefits you can gain from chiropractic care during pregnancy, including but not limited to:

  • Relief from neck pain, back pain, and joint pain
  • Better nerve function and general health
  • Less nausea
  • Reduction in stress
  • Improved sleep and energy
  • Better circulation and less swelling

What Types of Techniques Will Be Used?

Like care for any other life stage, condition, or complaint, the specific techniques used will depend on the individual patient. However, most pregnant moms can expect the following techniques.

  • Adjustments: Our team utilizes the Activator method. It involves a handheld tool that delivers an effective adjustment without hands-on force or twisting.
  • Websters technique: While it can be utilized for anyone with pelvic issues, the Webster Technique was designed specifically for pregnancy. It restores alignment to the pelvis, which helps relieve pain and even makes childbirth a bit smoother. It also creates the necessary space for the baby to turn head-down to the proper birth position.
  • Massage therapy: It’s no secret that carrying extra weight can lead to tension in the muscles. Therapeutic massage can help relieve this tension as well as help promote relaxation and better sleep.
  • Stretches and exercises: Chiropractors recommend gentle and safe stretches and exercises that help pregnant moms feel less pain, improve sleep, improve their posture, lead to easier labor and delivery, speed up recovery after birth, and much more.
