From the moment you become pregnant, your body goes through a series of changes. Back, pelvic and postural changes can cause stiffness, pain and discomfort. The good news is, Chiropractic Family Wellness Center can help!

Subluxations of the spine, also called nerve interference, occur when two or more of the 24 vertebrae in your spine become restricted and impede your body’s ability to communicate with itself. Subluxations during pregnancy can be caused by the changes taking place in your body as it prepares to support you and your baby, such as weight gain in the abdomen, poor posture and rotation of the pelvis force the body to unnaturally adapt to additional stress placed on the spine. These changes negatively affect joint function and nerve communication throughout the body.

Chiropractors locate and correct subluxations by applying a gentle, targeted movement to the body’s spinal column and extremities–where and when needed–restoring proper joint function and improving nerve communication throughout the body. This non-invasive technique brings great relief to the body and allows it to function at its best—which is very important, especially for pregnant mothers!

Millions of expectant mothers choose chiropractic to have healthy pregnancies and healthy babies.

Benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy include:

  • Relief from back, neck or joint pain
