Guide to Pregnancy Chiropractic Care

You want to do everything right for your baby, and especially if it’s your first, you might question every move you make. If you’ve heard of women visiting a chiropractor during pregnancy, you are likely to wonder whether that’s a safe thing to do and why they choose to seek pregnancy chiropractic. Below, Dr. Palkowski and the team at First Team Medical Clinics in Beavercreek, OH, answer these questions and more.

Is It Really Safe to Have Chiropractic Care While Pregnant?

Chiropractic care is a natural method of relieving pain and discomfort while promoting health. Generally speaking, it’s safe for everyone. When you’re pregnant, your chiropractor will use gentle techniques they are specially trained in that are safe and beneficial for you and your baby. However, as with any other care, it’s never a bad idea to discuss decisions with your prenatal care provider and always disclose any conditions and symptoms to your chiropractor.

What If I’m Not Experiencing Back Pain?

Chiropractors are well-known for treating back pain, which is something most pregnant women suffer from. However, if you’re one of the fortunate few who don’t have this issue, chiropractic care can still be beneficial, as it promotes health, wellness, and even a healthier delivery.

  • Improved nerve function

  • Reduction in stress
  • Restoring and maintaining alignment of the spine and pelvis
  • Relieving tension
