Pregnancy Chiropractic Care

At Family First Chiropractic of Verona, we love seeing expectant mothers. In our warm, family-friendly environment, you’ll feel comfortable right away. Whether you’re having your first bundle of joy or adding another to your family, chiropractic during pregnancy is one of our main focuses.

Why See a Chiropractor?

Before, during and after pregnancy, you can benefit from chiropractic. Expecting a baby takes a toll on your body and health. The changes you’ll encounter may result in aches and pains. Prenatal care can set you up for the best possible journey. According to studies, it can even reduce labor times.

The hormones running through your body during pregnancy loosen the ligaments in your pelvis and low back to prepare for birth. This movement, particularly when combined with an increase in weight, can cause joint issues in your spine and pelvis. These misalignments are called subluxations and interrupt your nervous system’s natural communication with your body. As a result, you may experience pain in the back, hip, upper torso and neck.

With gentle pressure, we can mobilize your joints, address soft tissues and give you therapeutic exercises that are safe for you to do. Our approach to pregnancy care includes the Webster Technique.

As with anyone who visits us, we’ll tailor your care to your individual needs. You’ll receive a thorough evaluation so that we know what is appropriate for you. With specialized tables and pillows, we can accommodate you through all stages of your pregnancy journey.

After your baby is born, we recommend you have a chiropractor check your infant as quickly as you can. As your body’s ligaments begin to tighten, we need to ensure that your pelvis and spine are aligned properly. In doing so, you’ll be better equipped to meet your responsibilities as a mom, such as breastfeeding, carrying a baby and all the stretching and bending required to care for your baby.
