Pregnancy Chiropractic Care

Pregnant woman being adjustedDid you know that chiropractic care can help moms-to-be experience an easier and more comfortable labor and delivery?

Completely safe throughout pregnancy, chiropractic ensures that the pelvis and spine are balanced so there’s no stress and tension on the sacrum. Pregnant women who get regular chiropractic care also experience less pain.

If you have any complications, please let Dr. Younis know so he can tailor his care accordingly.

Comfortable Adjustments

Adjustments for our pregnant patients are pretty much the same until they can’t lie face down any more. As a pregnancy chiropractor, Dr. Younis uses a different table or a pregnancy pillow and modifies the technique to accommodate the mom-to-be.

Though C-sections are sometimes necessary, we believe that they are performed too frequently and are all too common now. A vaginal delivery is much healthier for mom and baby. When pregnant women are properly adjusted, they will likely experience a smoother labor and childbirth.

Frequently Asked Questions

When Should I Start Coming In?

If you just found out you’re pregnant, consider coming in for the duration of your pregnancy. Though there’s no urgency to come in immediately, the sooner you can start care the better. Ideally, you’ll come in once a week early on and as you move into your third trimester, at least once a week and in all likelihood twice a week on an as-needed basis.

Are adjustments for pregnant women painful?

Absolutely not. In fact, our patients often report that they enjoy being adjusted as it allows them to relax and reduces any pain they may be experiencing. Pregnancy chiropractic care pays a unique attention to the alignment of your pelvis and lower spine, ensuring everything is where it should be. This can greatly reduce pressure on your sciatic nerve-a common complaint during pregnancy.

When can my baby be adjusted?

Babies can be adjusted right after birth or whenever you’d like to bring them in. An adjustment for a newborn is extremely gentle, and you won’t have to worry about any cracking or popping sounds. We’ll gladly show you the exact pressure we’re use to adjust your baby so that you can experience exactly what they will.
