Studies suggest that women who receive regular chiropractic care during pregnancy experience more comfortable pregnancies and have faster and less complicated deliveries. Studies have also found that there are no negative side-effects associated with chiropractic care during pregnancy.

Hormonal changes, loosened joints and weight gain increases the likelihood of becoming subluxated. A subluxation is a misaligned bone that causes joint dysfunction and may lead to nervous system dysfunction.

Chiropractic provided by a doctor well trained in pregnancy care, can often alleviate the symptoms and dysfunction associated with the following conditions:

  • Sciatica
  • Carpal tunnel
  • Pubic symphysis dysfunction
  • Low back/pelvic pain
  • Round ligament syndrome
  • Fetal malposition (i.e. breech, transverse, oblique, posterior)
