Are you, or someone you know, expecting a baby?

Health myths often cause people to hesitate instead of seeking out treatments that can benefit them.  Don’t let a health myth keep you trapped in pain.

One of the more common health myths has to do with pregnancy and chiropractic care.  It’s time to learn the truth.

Is chiropractic care safe during pregnancy?

Yes!  Chiropractors are trained to safely perform adjustments on pregnant women.  And chiropractic care is very beneficial during pregnancy.

Do expecting women need a chiropractor?

Carrying a baby places unique stresses on your body.  Chiropractic care will alleviate the stress on your spine and relieve discomfort.  It will help to control morning sickness.  Chiropractic care can potentially ease your delivery.

Chiropractic care, like a nutritious diet, moderate exercise, and avoiding tobacco and alcohol, is an important part of prenatal care.

Is there a specific point in my pregnancy when I should stop chiropractic care until after the baby is born? 

Chiropractic care can safely be given throughout your pregnancy.  The final decision about your treatment—pregnant or otherwise—is always yours.

You may find chiropractic care particularly helpful late in the pregnancy when your spine is under the greatest stress.

Is chiropractic care safe for infants and children?

Firstly, children have spines just like adults do.  Children benefit from musculo-skeletal care just like adults do.

Secondly, birth often places great stresses on infants’ bodies.

Finally, chiropractors learn to safely treat children.
