Pregnancy brings joy and anticipation; however, for some the experience can be painful, uncomfortable and even cause illness. Pregnant women experience many structural and hormonal changes that can affect the spine, nerves, joints, ligaments, connective tissue, center of gravity, and stability, wreaking total havoc on the body.
How We Can Help
Here at Elmsford Chiropractic Health and Wellness Center, our chiropractors can help make sure your spinal column, pelvis, and related structures are balanced, moving easily and have no subluxations. By receiving prenatal chiropractic care, the expectant mother can experience comfort, health, and vitality throughout her pregnancy. Chiropractic care will also help the expectant mother be able to handle the stress of childbirth more successfully.
Is chiropractic safe for a pregnant woman and her unborn child?
Absolutely! Chiropractic is gentle and drug-free, giving the best approach to health for both mom and baby during pregnancy.
Can I see other healthcare providers while under chiropractic care?
Of course. There is no conflict with you continuing to see other healthcare practitioners throughout your pregnancy.
How late in pregnancy is it possible to get a spinal adjustment?
Anytime. In fact, women have even received chiropractic care during labor!
Can spinal care help postpartum depression?
YES! According to studies, “Postpartum depression is a rarity in patients receiving…manipulative therapy,” which is exactly what our healing care will give you.
Do I have to have a problem in pregnancy to see a chiropractor?
Not at all. Periodic spinal checkups during pregnancy should be as common as periodic weigh-ins to ensure mother and baby’s health.
