Pregnancy Association endorses chiropractic care for pre-natal care

  Chiropractic care during pregnancy is extremely important for maintaining the health of the pregnant women and unborn child.  The ever growing protruding abdomen will cause structural problems affecting the lumbar curve and pelvis. This can lead to muscular aches, pains and sciatic nerve irritation. In addition, postural abnormalities may result which can further cause structural alignment issues. Most importantly, chiropractic care has a direct influence on the neurology of the reproductive system. Proper nerve impulse flow to the uterus improves function to the very organ that the baby is developing in. Proper nerve impulse flow is an important factor in health.  According to the American Pregnancy Association, There are no known contraindications to chiropractic care throughout pregnancy. All chiropractors are trained to work with women who are pregnant. Investing in the fertility and pregnancy wellness of women who are pregnant or trying to conceive is a routine care for most chiropractors. Some chiropractors specialize in pregnancy care and have additional training in Obstetrics. Pregnancy care chiropractors are typically certified in Webster's Uterine Constraint Technique, a technique that is widely known to help reduce the incidence of breech positioned babies.
