Pregnancy Chiropractic

Pregnancy can be one of the most special times in a woman’s life—as well as one of the most physically demanding. At Alexander Chiropractic and Wellness, we want to help you enjoy this time as much as possible, without the pain and discomfort typically associated with being pregnant.

How Chiropractic Helps

Chiropractic care restores and maintains spinal alignment, so the nerves of your body can function properly. Because your body changes so rapidly during pregnancy—with issues like weight gain, shifting center of gravity, and looser ligaments due to the hormone relaxin—both the nerves and the pelvic bones can experience a lot of pressure. This can cause pain, discomfort and difficulty sleeping, among other symptoms. It can also reduce nerve flow to the placenta, affecting your baby’s development.

Many studies have been done to test the safety and effectiveness of prenatal chiropractic care. They confirm that chiropractic care is safe for both Mom and Baby, and that women who receive regular care during pregnancy experience less pain and discomfort before, during and after birth. In addition, moms who get chiropractic care typically have shorter labor times with fewer medical interventions.

By restoring alignment to your spine, interferences along the nerve passageway are removed. This allows normal nerve flow to the placenta to give your baby everything they need to grow and develop appropriately. It may even help your baby get into the best position for birth.

Our Gentle Approach

We have a wide range of techniques in our tool belt, and we will customize care to meet your needs and preferences. We use gentle, specific instrument-assisted or drop table adjustments with no twisting. We also offer flexion distraction, which is a lower-back decompressing stretch on a table with a breakaway midsection that allows you to lie facedown, which patients love. When your spine is changing rapidly, the muscles and soft tissues are also responding, and inflammation occurs. We offer a refined touch to provide specific adjustments that help with the soft tissue component.
