You may be wondering if receiving chiropractic adjustments during pregnancy is safe. Some women see a chiropractor regularly and continue treatment during pregnancy, and some may need to start chiropractic care after becoming pregnant. Pregnancy causes many physical and endocrinological changes for women that can result in spinal and pelvic misalignment. Chiropractic care can help alleviate the discomfort associated with such changes.
Of course, you should always check with your obstetrician before seeing a chiropractor, but the American Pregnancy Association has found that it is considered safe for most expectant mothers.
