Preparing for a new baby is an amazing experience. Often referred to as “the miracle of childbirth,” there’s so much to be thankful for when it comes to bringing a new child into the world.
And as excited as you might be to meet your new bundle of joy, there’s at least one part of pregnancy you might not be as in love with: the back pain.
Roughly half of women experience back pain at some point during their pregnancy. In some cases, that pain can be so intense it makes managing your day-to-day life nearly impossible.
Here are just a few of the benefits safe, effective chiropractic adjustments offer to both expectant mothers and their babies!
Chiropractic Adjustments to Ease Pregnancy Back Pain
One of the most popular and effective medicinal therapies, chiropractic care is about applying gentle and precise pressure to the body’s spinal column and other extremities to relieve stress and discomfort throughout the body.
Because the spine works to protect our central nervous system, maintaining a healthy, well-aligned spine supports virtually every cell and organ in the body. During pregnancy, fluctuations in weight and overall posture may negatively impede joint function leading to aches and pain throughout the entire body. Ouch!
Chiropractic adjustments are both safe and drug-free, and millions of women every year chose to see a chiropractor to help alleviate back pain during pregnancy.
At Grovetown Chiropractic, Dr. Seals has been practicing for more than 20 years and has helped many mothers-to-be enjoy a happier and healthier pregnancy! By applying expertly controlled movement to the body and using gentle therapy techniques, chiropractic adjustments can help open up the hips and pelvis creating a more comfortable environment for both mother and baby!
Other Benefits of Seeing A Chiropractor During Pregnancy
Finding natural pain relief isn’t the only reason you might consider seeing a chiropractor during pregnancy!
Here are just a few of the common benefits to regular chiropractic adjustments throughout each stage of your pregnancy:
- Helps control symptoms of nausea when triggered by pinched nerves.
- Creates better positioning for the baby avoiding sideways, posterior, or breech presentation.

- Better sleep with reduced pain and postural improvements.
- Lower chances of needing a c-section.
