Chiropractic and Pregnancy

Chiropractic care during pregnancy can be beneficial for stiff joints, sore back or hips as well as increasing range of motion.  A recent study showed that chiropractic care durring pregnancy may reduce labor times by 24% for first time pregnancies and 39% for each pregnancy after that.  


Other benefits of chiropractic care for pain -free patients include:


-Increases in range of motion to area being adjusted, while also decreasing muscle tension


-Increase in cognitive function (memory, processing, and reasoning)


-Increase in respiratory burst (immune system), visual acuity, and distal (hand and feet) skin temperature with neck adjustments


-Decrease in salivary corisol levels (associated with disturbed concentration and increased heart rate/stress)

Babies and Chiropractic

Birth is one of the most traumatic processes we go through in life.  Think about how much pressure is applied for a long period of time to the head and neck!


If forceps are used or a C-section, these can affect the baby's neck, specifically the very top vertebrae (atlas).






Chiropractic care may help with:


-Feeding problems



-Sleep issues

-Overall nervous system communication
