Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy

Chiropractic Care During PregnancyEverybody talks about how having a child changes your life. Providing for them, changing diapers, teaching them how to live, soccer practice, homework, saving for college…

However, people talk less about how having a child changes your body. Your joints and ligaments loosen to accommodate your new passenger. The extra unbalanced weight can throw off your posture and leave you feeling clumsy when you move. It doesn’t take a blog to tell you that pregnancy and childbirth are brutal on your body.

This is where chiropractic care comes in. Maintaining spine and joint health is extremely important during this special nine months when your body is doing so much extra work to accommodate your child. Like anything with pregnancy, there are some extra considerations to make sure you are doing it safely.

Is Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy Safe?

Overall, it is safe to receive chiropractic care when you are pregnant. Medically speaking, there are no harmful effects to you or your child from chiropractic treatments as long as they are performed correctly by qualified professionals. This is because chiropractic care does not involve any drugs or surgeries. It is a completely natural and medically proven way of healing your body.

Luckily, our team is trained in how to treat pregnant women and some even specialize in prenatal care.

How can you tell if your chiropractor is trained on how to treat for pregnant women? Well, your first stop should always be your doctor. They should be clearing any treatment you get and they might even recommend us to you. Additionally, a good prenatal chiropractor will take extra care not to put any pressure on your belly or abdomen and may also provide you with pregnancy-safe stretches to help with relieving tension and joint stress.

What are the Benefits?

As your baby grows, your center of gravity changes and your spine tries to compensate. Your joints and pelvis will also change as they prepare for delivery. This is a recipe for discomfort, pain, and misalignment. A properly aligned pelvis is also important in providing enough room for your baby’s development.

Chiropractic care can help with all of these problems in a natural and non-invasive way and can even help with other aspects of pregnancy like reducing nausea.

Extra Considerations

While discussing care with your doctor should be your first step, there are some other considerations to keep in mind as well. If you are experiencing vaginal bleeding, placental abruption, or otherwise expect to have complications or an atypical pregnancy, then extra discussion needs to take place with your doctor and chiropractor to ensure that everyone is on the same page in providing you with proper care.

Talk to your doctor before receiving any treatment, but if you have any questions about prenatal chiropractic care or are looking for qualified professionals who will take good care of you and your treasure, schedule a consultation with CK Chiropractic Center.

    5 star rating Came here for an initial visit after a car accident and so far so good. The place is clean and organized, which made it inviting. The staff was friendly and the doctor was nice. After a few x-rays, he noticed something was off and is evaluating further. This is my second time getting an X-ray and no other doctor has told me I had a slight abnormality so I'm thankful for that. I have a few more appointments lined up so let's see how long that can keep up their good service!

    5 star rating When I initially started treatment with Dr. Kien Ta, I didn't beleive I'd ever get out of pain. At first, due to the extreme pain I endured from my accident, the treatment was a little uncomfortable. Thank GOD for Dr. Ta and his team of assistants for making the experience much more tolerable.

    Thank you so much,

    CK Chiropractic came highly recommended by a colleague. I had an excellent experience here for treatment after a bad car accident in Lake Tahoe while on vacation. Dr. Ta and his staff are super friendly, knowledgeable and make you feel comfortable immediately. Would recommend coming here for regular treatment or post-accident chiropractic care. Conveniently located right off the 15 with a small parking lot.
