Pregnancy Chiropractic Care at
Allgood Chiropractic and Family Wellness Center

With pregnancy, your body changes in ways that are totally unprecedented. As a result, you may not be functioning as well as you used to. Pain is common, and the hormone relaxin that the body produces can create stability problems. You might even experience digestive issues and other pregnancy-related ailments. We recommend seeing a chiropractor as early as possible in pregnancy – or even before you conceive to make sure you body is functioning optimally!

At Allgood Chiropractic and Family Wellness Center, our team is well-versed in helping pregnant women to enjoy and get the most out of their pregnancy experience.

Assessing Your Needs

Part of your examination will include bilateral weight scales. As you likely know, X-rays are never taken on pregnant women. But there is still a great way to determine how your body is doing by using these weight scales. Two scales are used and you’ll step on both to see which side of your body is taking on more weight.

Once we know which side is compensating, we can locate the unhealthy patterns and relate them to the issues you’re having. With that analysis, we’ll be able to recommend the care plan that is right for you!

Early on in pregnancy, your body is flooded with the hormone relaxin. Relaxin’s job, just like it sounds, is to relax all the ligaments in the body to ensure that the baby can move into the birthing canal and join us in the world.

But the problem is, with everything moving easier, it’s more likely that you’ll have misalignments in the spine. These misalignments cause miscommunication between the brain and body. As a result, you might end up with aches, pains and other problems during your pregnancy. They’ve all related to nerve dysfunction!

Your care will involve balancing out your hips and pelvis. In doing so, we don’t just want to make sure you’re moving easier – we also want to create the most space possible for your baby. In the uterus, with proper room, they can grow and develop as they should, as well as have the best opportunity to move head-down before the birth.

It’s a great choice to get adjusted before you conceive and throughout the duration of your pregnancy. Then, after you’ve had the baby, you’ll want to come in and make sure that you are recovering from birth. Your body has just delivered a human into the world, and that can be traumatic when it comes to the effects on your health.

Plus, you’re feeding a baby and holding them constantly, so you want to make sure your entire body is in alignment and functioning at its highest potential.

Dr. Jimmy and Dr. Lauren are certified in the Webster Technique. This certification was obtained through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. With a specific system of analysis and adjustment that’s just for pregnant moms, this technique will reduce spinal misalignments and correct imbalances. The goal is to get your body functioning as optimally as possible, right up to your baby’s birth.
