Diversified chiropractic adjustments are safe for mom and baby throughout the duration of the pregnancy.
Your center of gravity shifts forward as the baby grows, the pelvis tilts anteriorly causing the muscles in the lower back to become shortened and tightened, while the hamstrings and gluteal muscles become stretched and weakened.
Special tables and pillows are used so pregnant women can lie in the prone (face down) position while being treated.
A woman’s body goes through countless changes while pregnant, not only hormonally, but also posturally and bio-mechanically.
The curves in the cervical and lumbar regions are increased, placing extra stress in the lower back and neck. This hands-on technique helps to reduce uterine torsion so the baby can turn itself into the proper position for a safe, less painful delivery.


Low back pain is almost imminent during pregnancy; chiropractic care offers a non-invasive, safe form of care to help alleviate pain and make having a baby easier. The round ligaments attach to the uterus, are stretched and placed under a lot of stress while pregnant, and can be the cause of significant amounts of pain while pregnant, both in the abdomen and lower back.
Symphysis dysfunction and diastasis can happen during pregnancy; referred pain from the broad and round ligaments can cause intense pain often mimicking diastasis. No one likes to be in pain; pain can also cause a great deal of anxiety and stress, neither of which are good for mom or baby. The psoas, tensor fascia lata (TFL), quadratus lumborum, and piriformis muscles are also placed under new loads when pregnant, causing pain, tightness and imbalances. Getting adjusted regularly while pregnant can help ease or eliminate pain and make the process of having a baby much easier.


Hormonal changes throughout pregnancy cause ligaments to become looser, and therefore causing the joints to become less stable, especially the sacroiliac joints and pubic symphysis. Wedge-shaped blocks can also be used to help the pelvis return to a normal position and ease pain. Chiropractors use gentle, soft tissue techniques to help relax the tight ligaments and eliminate or reduce pain.
