Imagine being pregnant and finally getting the chance to lie down in bed after an exhausting day. All you want to do is take it easy for the rest of the evening, but you can’t seem to get comfortable. Your lower back hurts, your hips are out of whack, and your belly feels like it is getting bigger by the second. In the past, you’d schedule one of your routine visits to the chiropractor, but you stop short this time and ask yourself, “Wait! Can pregnant women go to the chiropractor?”

The short answer is yes; lots of pregnant women go to the chiropractor as part of a scheduled treatment plan.

We see quite a few expectant mothers each month at Brain-Body Connection Chiropractic in Denton, TX. Many of them are first-time mothers who were hesitant to come in the past, fearing that they’d cause harm to themselves and their baby. Others might be on their second or third pregnancy but never thought of the benefits of a chiropractic adjustment with those earlier pregnancies.

“Absolutely amazing! I wasn’t a believer until I came here. At 37 weeks pregnant, I was limping around thinking that it was normal to hurt as bad as I did. After ONE SESSION I’m now able to walk without pain!” — Lindsey R.

Regular manipulation of the muscles and joints through chiropractic care is highly beneficial for pregnant women. The advantages of chiropractic for expectant mothers include relieving pressure in the back, neck, hips, and joints so that not only is the pregnancy as a whole more comfortable, but the health of the mother and baby dramatically improves when done consistently. Other benefits include:

• Helping the body balance the weight of a growing belly
• Eliminating pelvic dysfunction
• Giving the baby more room to grow
• Improved sleep
• Maintaining a healthier pregnancy
• Avoiding a c-section delivery (in some cases)
