Pregnancy Care Q&A

Is it safe to have chiropractic care while I'm pregnant?

Yes; chiropractors are trained in the best techniques for treating pregnant women, and Dr. Lichy provides special equipment including special tables designed to support a woman's pregnant belly. He also helps women learn special stretching and exercise techniques they can use at home to relieve symptoms that can occur during pregnancy and to help prepare themselves for the birth experience.

What are the benefits of chiropractic care for pregnant women?

When you're pregnant, your entire body responds with multiple changes that can affect nearly every system and organ:

  • weight gain and a protruding belly cause changes in the stress that's exerted on your spine;

  • postural adaptations necessary to support your body can cause the spinal alignment to become disrupted;

  • changes in the way your pelvis tilts can produce additional stress, especially on your lower back.

Chiropractic adjustments, special exercises and other treatments can help keep your spine in alignment and relieve stress that can cause low back pain, sciatica and other spine-related issues.

Can chiropractic care help me with pregnancy issues aside from back pain?

Yes; regular care helps ensure the uterus is properly aligned so your baby has plenty of space to grow and delivery is as uncomplicated as possible. Plus, because a pregnant mom's body now must support two people, chiropractic care can ensure nerve pathways are kept clear so every organ can operate the way it should, even as additional demands are placed on it. Chiropractic care can also help by reducing the symptoms of nausea, helping ensure moms-to-be get the nutrition they need to help their babies develop. And finally, stretching and other exercises may reduce the need for Cesarean delivery as well as reducing the time spent in labor.
