Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy

Updated: Jul 27, 2023

Pregnancy can be an exciting time, but we can also experience new aches and pains as our body changes. For example, we may experience low back, sciatica, neck, foot/ankle, and hip pain. This is where chiropractic care can be helpful to alleviate some of the aches and pains with chiropractic adjusting, Webster technique, home exercises, and soft tissue therapy.


When should I see my chiropractor during pregnancy?


People often wonder when they should start coming in for regular chiropractic care during their pregnancy. It is important to come in early; therefore, your chiropractor can work with you as the baby grows and the body changes. Your chiropractor can help reduce the aches and pains, and optimize the function of the joints in the body. Your chiropractor can also teach you exercises to help you move effectively throughout the pregnancy.



What is Webster Technique?


Webster technique is a specialized chiropractic technique used during pregnancy. Webster focuses on gently adjusting and treating the joints, ligaments, and muscles of the pelvis to help reduce pain and improve function. As you get closer to the baby’s due date, the frequency of treatment may increase to help optimize the function of the pelvis. Each and every person is different, so the specific treatment plan will differ for each individual.



We welcome you at any time during your pregnancy, but the earlier, the better to start relieving/managing the pain and improving function.
