FAQ About Seeing a Chiropractor During Pregnancy, Manhattan, New York

Pregnancy is an exciting time, but you may be feeling some physical discomfort as you wait for your baby to arrive. Back pain, hip stiffness, poor posture, and sciatica can keep you up at night and affect your daily activities. Many women see a chiropractor during their pregnancy to treat these issues and feel comfortable during all three trimesters. If you are considering this approach, below are answers to some common inquiries on the topic.

Common Concerns About Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy

What issues can chiropractic care treat?

When you see a chiropractor who has experience with prenatal patients, you will enjoy various benefits. Adjustments relieve lower back pain, prevent sciatica, align your pelvis, and improve your posture. Chiropractic care can also control nausea. Talk to a professional about your symptoms to create a tailored treatment plan. 

Does chiropractic care benefit my developing baby?

pregnancyPrenatal chiropractic adjustments provide proper pelvic alignment. Doing so increases the chances of your baby moving into the right position for birth. During its development, a balanced pelvis also gives the baby the proper space to grow. 

Can I see a chiropractor during the whole pregnancy?

While it’s important to talk to your doctor about prenatal care, most chiropractors recommend having adjustments during every trimester. As your body changes, this solution will keep your spine, hips, and pelvis in the right position. The sooner you start, the likelier you are to prevent issues down the line. 

How often should I see my chiropractor?

Whether pregnant or not, the frequency of appointments varies between individuals. To determine how often you require adjustments, talk to your chiropractor during each trimester. As you get closer to birth, for example, they may advise more visits to ensure your pelvis is aligned.
