Pregnancy Chiropractic in Edmonton

As your body negotiates these changes, chiropractic care supports its capacity to adapt. Chiropractic adjustments ensure your body’s nervous system functions optimally and the pelvis is well prepared for birth, potentially reducing complications.

Alleviating Common Discomforts

Are you struggling with back pain, pelvic pain or sciatica during pregnancy? These are common discomforts thanks to the weekly changes in your spine and pelvis. Fortunately, chiropractic care can address prenatal discomfort naturally.

“If we can keep the nervous system in a state of ease by making sure we’re clearing that spine of interference, any subluxations or misalignments, that helps pregnant women not only sleep better but feel better,” said Dr. Don.

We often hear moms-to-be say things like, “I feel lighter, I feel more relaxed, I feel more at ease, I feel less tense.” Those are all the things that are vitally important just for overall well-being.

Prenatal Chiropractic Techniques & Approaches

Your body requires a unique approach during pregnancy due to the changes it experiences. Chiropractic care uses specific techniques to ensure your sacrum moves properly and releases tension from your stomach. These techniques are focused on decreasing pain, increasing function, and preparing your body for birth.

The Value of Post-Delivery Care

After delivery, your body experiences another rapid shift. Chiropractic care can support your body as it reorganizes itself post-pregnancy, ensuring it smoothly transitions back to its non-pregnant state. Moreover, adjustments can help new moms manage stress better and improve sleep quality and overall mental well-being.

How often should I get adjusted during pregnancy?
