You’re pregnant and uncomfortable. As a mother of three, I understand.

Can chiropractic care help with pregnancy?

Currently, the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) recommends women receive chiropractic care throughout pregnancy to establish pelvic balance and optimize the room a baby has for development throughout pregnancy. With a balanced pelvis, babies have a greater chance of moving into the correct position for birth. Receiving regular chiropractic care while pregnant is a great way to relieve the added stress on your spine that comes along with weight gain and posture changes. It can prevent sciatica, the inflammation of the sciatic nerve that runs from your lower back down through your legs and to your feet. Receiving regular treatments can also help control nausea, prevent a potential C-section, and has been shown to reduce the amount of time some women spend in labor.

Many people wonder if it is healthy for children to receive chiropractic care and the short answer is yes! It’s healthy for EVERYONE. Children, like adults can benefit greatly from an optimally functioning nervous system.

For kids, chiropractic care is necessary for proper development of a child’s spine. With all of the falls and mishaps that children often experience, the odds are quite high that minor injuries are occurring that don’t necessarily cause significant pain at the time of the injury. However, these minor injuries, if left untreated can accumulate over the years until such time that more significant health issues evolve. It is important that your child receive routine dental visits to obtain optimal oral health right? It is important to remember that, just like your teeth, your spine experiences normal wear and tear and can benefit from routine spinal checks to obtain overall health.
