Pregnancy Chiropractic in Upper East Side NY

Why Do I Need Chiropractic Care?

A woman’s body undergoes numerous changes during pregnancy. The pelvis shifts and widens, ligaments and tendons stretch to accommodate the changes, and the increasing weight of the baby puts pressure on the pelvis and spine. Every day there’s something different.

All these changes can cause misalignment, resulting in pain and loss of function for mom. Being proactive and receiving adjustments throughout your pregnancy helps keep your spine healthy.

Dr. Alex can adjust many different ways to accommodate whatever position is most comfortable for you. The frequency of visits depends on what your body needs. Every patient is special and unique; so is your care.

Adjustments also allow your baby to move more freely and get into an optimal birth position. When baby is happy Mom sleeps better, has fewer digestive issues, and less pain and discomfort.

How Can It Help Me?

Some primary benefits of pregnancy chiropractic are:

  • Helps maintain good health throughout the pregnancy – when your body is in alignment and functioning properly, optimum wellness is possible.
  • Relieves back, neck and joint pain – carrying around the extra weight of the baby puts mom’s skeletal system under duress. At some point, this will cause low back and hip pain, and affect other joints as well.
  • Shorter labor and delivery – when mom’s body is in balance, joints and ligaments are relaxed. Labor and delivery are quicker and less painful.
  • Faster post-partum recovery – Chiropractic care can help ease your discomfort and get you back to feeling your best.
