Because of the additional weight and stress on the framework of the
body in pregnant women, chiropractic adjustments can help lower the incidence of pain in
the low back and legs, and between the shoulder blades. In some cases, fewer headaches and
problems with nausea and elimination may also result. Many chiropractors care for
expectant mothers in the regular course of their daily practices.
Most importantly is that chiropractic helps the expecting mother by
improving nerve system function. Chiropractic has been based for over 100 years on
correcting interference to the nervous system known as subluxations. With a properly
functioning nerve system free of subluxations it is easy to see how many aspects of this
important time for an expectant mother will be made easier. Many women rely on
chiropractic care as a regular part of their pre-natal routine.
