Common Questions About Prenatal Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care is beneficial and available for most people, including pregnant moms. Read some of the most common questions about visiting a pregnancy chiropractor and the answers provided by Dr. Lundgren at Knoxville Family Chiropractic in Knoxville, TN.

Is It Safe to Visit a Chiropractor While Pregnant?

This is a very common and completely understandable question. You don’t want to do anything to imperil your pregnancy or yourself. You can rest assured, though, that prenatal chiropractic care is generally safe.

Chiropractors who offer prenatal care are specially trained to do so, and some work toward additional certifications. They employ gentle techniques that are safe for both mom and baby. Before beginning a chiropractic care plan, your chiropractor will determine if there is anything that might impact your candidacy for care or certain techniques. Your treatment plan will be customized to your needs and your comfort.

What Are the Benefits of Prenatal Chiropractic Care?

Carrying around the weight of a baby can put a strain on the body, especially the back and pelvis. Herniated discs, muscle tension, and nerve compression are all common in pregnancy, which result in various uncomfortable symptoms. Chiropractors can relieve the strain and correct any musculoskeletal issues, providing benefits such as:

  • Relief from neck, back, and joint pain
  • Reduced swelling
  • Increased energy
  • Relief from headaches
  • Less irritability and fewer mood swings
  • Better quality sleep

Prenatal chiropractic care has also resulted in a shorter and smoother delivery and helped to position the baby properly for birth.

How Soon Should I See a Chiropractor After Finding Out I’m Pregnant?

Ideally, you should visit a chiropractor as early as possible in your pregnancy. However, there is never a bad time. Even moms who take advantage of chiropractic care for the last few weeks or months of their pregnancy can enjoy many benefits.

Can Chiropractic Care Really Turn a Baby That’s In a Breech Position?

Your chiropractor won’t actually turn your baby. They’ll address the reason that your baby hasn’t yet turned, which is usually not having the space necessary to do so. Chiropractic care can create space in the pelvic area so that the baby can turn into an optimal birth position on its own.
