How Chiropractic Care Promotes a Healthy Pregnancy

Prenatal Chiropractic Care in Beverly Hills at Tannenbaum Chiropractic

As we all know, pregnancy causes a wide range of changes in the female body, some of which can cause pain, tension, muscle strain, and spinal misalignment. As the baby grows in utero, the body’s organs move and readjust to the new shape, while weight gain changes how women walk and move. It can disrupt sleep and change how sitting, standing, or lying down feels, among other discomforts. Luckily, there are safe, non-invasive options for self-care during pregnancy, including chiropractic adjustments and care.

At Tannenbaum Chiropractic, we care about our pregnant patients and want to help you feel as comfortable as possible throughout your pregnancy. Let our team of Beverly Hills chiropractors help you feel better during your pregnancy.

Changes in the Body During Pregnancy

As your baby grows, your body will inevitably change. Some of the changes that can be expected with pregnancy include:

  • The body will grow to carry an extra 20-40 lbs
  • The abdominal muscles weaken and may displace
  • The spinal curvature of the lower back increases
  • The joints and ligaments loosen due to pregnancy-based hormone release, causing hip instability
  • Pelvic changes causing postural changes

The Benefits of Prenatal Chiropractic Care

  • Back pain relief- Back pain is one of the most common complaints during pregnancy. Joints, ligaments, and pelvic floor loosening can cause spinal misalignment and instability. Combining these issues with weight gain can create pain, tension, muscle spasms, and nerve pain. Chiropractic adjustments can help improve spinal alignment and improve function and stability in the pelvic floor and abdominal muscles.
  • Reduced nausea- As the nervous system function improves with regular chiropractic adjustments, your pregnancy-related nausea may decrease. This is because a healthy nervous system helps regulate hormones and the digestive system and reduces the nausea caused by these things.
  • Postural support- Chiropractic care can help pregnant women be more aware of the postural changes that occur during pregnancy and teach them how to avoid standing, sitting, and lying in ways that cause pain.
  • Improved sleep- The decreased pain and improved nervous system function that come with chiropractic adjustments while pregnant can help patients sleep more comfortably and soundly. Chiropractic care also helps relieve muscle tension caused by spinal discomfort, giving pregnant women a chance to relax and making it easier to fall asleep.
  • Reduced pelvic pain- Some women experience pelvic floor pain during pregnancy, also called pelvic girdle pain. Chiropractors can provide some relief from this condition, help improve pelvic floor muscle function, and improve pelvic stability.
