Can a Chiropractor Help With Prenatal & Postnatal Care? September 7, 2018

Can a Chiropractor Help With Prenatal & Postnatal Care?, Manhattan, New York

From morning sickness to backaches, women experience all sorts of changes when they’re pregnant. Often, the weight of a fetus places stress on different joints and muscles, which causes discomfort. Many women find prenatal chiropractic care alleviates symptoms when they’re expecting—and postnatal adjustments also provide benefits after the child is born. Here’s how a chiropractor can help.

Prenatal Chiropractic Treatment

Musculoskeletal changes during pregnancy range from forward flexion of the neck to joint laxity in the lumbar spine ligaments, which can cause your pelvic bone to become misaligned. These conditions can be painful, but many expectant mothers want to avoid pain relievers and medications that might harm their unborn child. Prenatal chiropractic care focuses on adjusting the spinal column, discs, nerves, bones, and joints without using drugs that could produce side effects.

To begin treatment, a chiropractor will use light pressure to adjust your spine, thereby relieving pressure on the back, legs, shoulders, neck, and joints caused by the off-center position of the uterus. Alleviating stress points can also ease headaches, nausea, and other common symptoms during pregnancy.

Postnatal Chiropractic Care

Seeing a chiropractor can help expedite postnatal rehabilitation. Similar adjustments are made to realign the spine and pelvic region after giving birth. A chiropractor can also relieve back strain, which is a frequent complaint for mothers who breastfeed.


If you want to take advantage of prenatal chiropractic care and postpartum treatment, reach out to the professionals at Pure Balance in Murray Hill for assistance.
