Q&A: Chiropractor while pregnant?

Is it safe to go to a chiropractor while pregnant?

Re: Is it safe to go to a chiropractor while pregnant?

The Bump Expert

Not only is it safe to visit a chiropractor during your pregnancy, it’s also highly beneficial. All chiropractors are specially trained to treat pregnant women, but you may want to do a little research and find one who specializes in prenatal or perinatal care. Getting regularly adjusted while pregnant is a great way to relieve the added stress on your spine that comes along with the weight gain. It can also prevent sciatica, the inflammation of the sciatic nerve that runs from your lower back down through your legs and to your feet. It’s also important to maintain pelvic balance, which is oftentimes thrown off as your belly grows and your posture changes.

Besides making you feel better during pregnancy, getting regular chiropractic adjustments can also help control nausea, prevent a potential C-section, and has even been linked to reducing the amount of time some women spend in labor.

I have been going to the Chiropractor for about a month now, and I know when I get farther along in the pregnancy I will definitely be going. it helps out so much with headaches and everyday aches too.

It took us 7 months to get pregnant. The month I started chiropractic treatment we got pregnant. I get adjusted 3 times a week for spinal issues and I'm so happy that it helps during the pregnancy.

I have been going to a chiropratic since October, we just found out that we are expecting. Maybe this had something to with it :)

I have been going to the chiropractor and I'm loving it. My lower back pain is gone, I feel lighter, more agile and stable!.. couldn't recommend it highly enough! I'm due in 5 weeks and feel very confident that my adjustments will be a plus in labor!

re: Q: Chiropractor while pregnant?

I've been seeing a chiro for years and luckily she specializes in prenatal. Not sure if it's due to the adjustments or if I'm just plain lucky but I am in my second trimester now and have had no morning sickness what-so-ever!!

I've been going to a chiropractor for awhile and it made a huge difference in my first pregnancy. My labor was a little over four hours.

re: Q: Chiropractor while pregnant?

I had a miscarriage with my first pregnancy.... but I don't think it was my chiropractor!I've been seeing a CP since I was 15. I swear by her. I would not be walking if it were not for her. I got pregnant around 10/2 and I had the worst back injury of my life on 10/9. I was able to get back into alignment without having x-rays or anything else that would have been dangerous to my baby. My baby survived until 8 weeks! I had very little MS and very few aches and pains! I continue to see her and will continue to do so!For people with PCOS. GO SEE A CHIROPRACTOR!!! My period can be mondo late, and I will be convinced that I haven't O'd, then I'll go to the CP and my pelvis will be out. She puts it back in, and viola! I start my period the next day.

re: Q: Chiropractor while pregnant?

It's the best!!! I initially went because my midwife suggested it would help with all my neck aches and headaches I had been having and while he has helped with both he is also working on aligning my jaw, my pelvis, my back...everything! I feel like a million bucks, not to mention it will REALLY help out when the time comes because I am also planning to have a natural childbirth and will need all the natural helps I can get. :)

Q&A: Chiropractor while pregnant?

I go to a different kind of chiropractor. She uses the activator method (kind of a "kick stand" looking thing). Since I have to lay on my stomach, would it be beneficial for the baby? I'm just curious about that.

Q&A: Chiropractor while pregnant?

I would like to elaborate on this question... In the past, my chiropractor has put electrode-like thingy's on my back to relax the muscles. These pads must be sending an electric current through my body. That can't be safe...can it?

Q&A: Chiropractor while pregnant?

My chiro can adjust her table to allow for my belly, so I can lay on my stomach for adjustments, but there is no weight on my stomach. Also, regarding electric stem therapy, the part of chiropractic that is most helpful are the actual adjustments. Your chiro should be able to use other methods to loosen your muscles. Mine just acutally took the time to give me a quick massage while I was pregnant.

Q&A: Chiropractor while pregnant?

As a chiropractor, I will tell you that we are trained NOT to use electrical modalities on pregnant women. Most chiropractors will use massage or other hands on techniques to relax muscles before an adjustment so the whole procedure is as comfortable as possible. I have found in my practice that women who are adjusted throughout the pregnancy have fewer problems with pregnancy symptoms like headaches, back pain, morning sickness, etc. I am currently 5 weeks pregnant and will continue to be adjusted weekly throughout my pregnancy. I'm lucky that my husband is a chiropractor as well! Good luck to all of you!

i know when I was pregnant w/my 4 yr old, the chiropractor saved my back, even though I only went the last 3 months (love those break away tables!). i fully plan on going through the entire pregnancy this time around. im 4 weeks and i've already got horrible back pain..

Q&A: Chiropractor while pregnant?

I'm really lucky to work for a chiropractor. She is actually trained in the Webster Technique which is specifically designed for pregnant women. We have had several women in the last year come in during their pregnancy and they all had great experiences. Actually I attribute my success in getting pregnant to her. Between her unique chiropractic style and her nutritional advice it didn't take long at all and I have PCOS. In fact as soon as I took her advice on my eating style, my body stopped working against her. Three months later I was PREGNANT!

I started having major sciatica pains in my fourth month. They stopped after just one adjustment at my chiropractor. Make sure they have the table with the adjustable middle so that you can safely lie on your stomach.

Q&A: Chiropractor while pregnant?

I'm a Chiropractor specializing in pre-natal care, these are a few of benefits I've listed on my blog. Hope it helps. For the mother * Prepare the pelvis for an easier pregnancy and birth by creating a state of balance in pelvic bony structures, muscles and ligaments. * Removes tension on the ligaments that support the uterus thus reducing the torsion(intrauterine constraint) to the woman's uterus. * Allows for safer easier birth for the mother decreasing the potential for intervention For the infant * Allows the baby the room to develop without restrictions to its forming cranium, spine and other skeletal structures. * Removes interferences to the mother's nerve system allowing for better baby development. * Offers the baby the room to move into the best possible position for birth. * With proper fetal positioning, there is a significant decrease in dystocia and the resulting birth trauma caused by intervention.

Q&A: Chiropractor while pregnant?

Just wanted to make a mention to the person asking about electric stim while pregnant. I JUST found out I'm pregnant and I am currently in my second year of chiropractic school. We were actually doing electric stim the day that I found out... I asked my teacher, and turns out that pregnancy is definitely a contraindication for electric stim and several other therapies! Chiropractic itself can be extremely beneficial while pregnant, but make sure to tell your doctor so he/she knows not to use any therapy modalities that may pose a risk to your baby! :)

Q&A: Chiropractor while pregnant?

Yes you can as long as you go to a chiropractor that is trained to do adjustments on pregnant women, and you tell them your pregnant it,s safe, and healthy for you, and can even help you with your delivery by the chiroprator making sure your pelvic area stays where its supposed to be and not tilt like mine did with the first one causing me to have to have an emergency c-section.

Q&A: Chiropractor while pregnant?

Chiropractic is absolutely AMAZING for pregnancy (before and after too!). I am 26 weeks along, and happen to be a chiropractor expecting my first child. I've been under regular chiropractic care for about 15 years, so when the low back pain hit me around 20 weeks, I wasn't expecting it! The interesting thing to note is that women have ligaments that attach the uterus to the sacrum (tail bone). Imagine, as your baby and uterus start to grow, the tension of this process actually pulls the ligaments tighter and can cause the tail bone to rotate or misalign. This is why we so commonly feel low back pain as we head full force into the 2nd trimester. I obviously believe whole-heartedly in what I do, but now that I can see the dramatic and immediate results of a chiropractic adjustment within moments of getting off the table, I am telling every pregnant person I know to GET ADJUSTED! A great place to find a pregnant-friendly chiropractor in your area is www.ICPA4Kids.org.

Q&A: Chiropractor while pregnant?

Going to a Chiropractor is very safe! I worked for one for 8 years and had adjustments on a regular basis while I was pregnant with ds and plan on doing the same. Make him aware you are prego and a good Chiropractor will do lots of stretching getting your body ready. Most of the time they even have tables that accommodate your growing belly. I am such an avid believer in Chiropractic therapy that when ds was born I had him adjusted within hours. He never had colic, he was a great sleeper, great nurser to this day he has never had even an ear infection.

Q&A: Chiropractor while pregnant?

I would say it is safe only after you have been advised by your doctor to do so. Otherwise, ask for a doctor`s opinion when in doubt. I for one have found this brilliant colon cleanser method on the internet and I am well aware of how important it is to use this every now and then so that you avoid further digestive affections but even so, I wouldn`t go forward unadvised.

Q&A: Chiropractor while pregnant?

Of course Chiropratic care is safe. It's the silliest thing I always hear people say, "it's not safe". It's one of the safest things you could possibly do. Going to an MD poses many many more risks than a Chiropractor. Just look at the back of any and all medication you may take..."side effects". The force it would take for a chiropractor to actually injur you is extrememly high. Nobody needs to be advised to go to a Chiro. Go on your own, you'll be glad you did. I too and a wife of a chiro. My overall health has improved since I met that man and it's simply because I get regular chiropractic treatment. Only issue you might run into is finding a "good" chiro. They are hard to come by sometimes...

Indeed it is a difficult period to work while you are in the third semester pregnant. You can ask an Atlanta workers comp lawyer for an advice, because you don't have to deal with a lot of stress at the workplace. Everything can become easier for you if you seek legal consultation.

Q&A: Chiropractor while pregnant?

I started seeing my chiropractor again when my lower back pain became so uncomfortable that I was having a hard time sitting at work. I had also experienced shooting pains down my left leg when I stood too long (sounds like sciatica but I'm pretty convinced it was low pelvic pain). The first time he adjusted me, I felt some relief, then saw him a week later per his recommendation. After the second adjustment, the discomfort was almost totally gone. I saw him two weeks after that and now I feel amazing! I have absolutely no lower back discomfort now. I'm occasionally uncomfortable when lying down but it's usually gone within a few minutes, and isn't every night. But my chiropractor said to come back in a month if I'm still experiencing any problems. If not, I can come back in as needed. When he told me that adjustments would likely help with labor and delivery, I was sold! It was a great experience and I would highly recommend it to anyone. I also have scoliosis so for me to be in no discomfort whatsoever is a miracle. Adjustments have really done the trick for me throughout my pregnancy!
