Chiropractic care may be helpful for some women who experience pain during pregnancy. Pregnancy can put a lot of stress on the spine, pelvis and the surrounding muscles, causing pain, discomfort and can affect the ability to move freely.
Chiropractors use manual adjustments and manipulations to realign the spine and pelvis, which can help reduce pain and inflammation, and improve mobility. They may also use other techniques such as soft tissue therapy, stretching, and exercises to help alleviate pain and improve overall joint health.
Additionally, chiropractors may also use specialized techniques, such as the Webster technique, which is a specific adjustment that can help to balance the pelvis, which can be particularly beneficial for pregnant women who experience pain in the lower back, hips and pelvis.
