Is Chiropractic Care Safe for Pregnant Women?
Chiropractic adjustments are safe in the hands of a chiropractor trained to work with pregnant women and children. When choosing a chiropractor, opt for a professional who has earned the following credentials:

Benefits of Chiropractic Treatment for Expecting Moms
On average, women will gain approximately 30 lbs during pregnancy, which puts stress on the back, hips, knees and ankles, and can lead to altered posture. Additionally, during the third trimester the levels of the hormone “relaxin” increase. This occurs in order to loosen joints so that the pelvis can adapt for a more accommodating birth canal. This loosening of the joints can cause additional changes to your posture; this change in posture may lead to pain and discomfort in the lower back. Therefore, naturally, chiropractic care offers many advantages for pregnant women.
With the help of our experienced pre- and post-natal chiropractor, Dr. Jenn, expecting mothers may expect the following benefits:
Reduced Back and Pelvic Pain
The additional weight gain during pregnancy can lead to an increased risk of back and pelvic pain. Effective chiropractic care can relieve these pains by decreasing the pressure on the joints, muscles, and nerves.
Relief From Sciatica
This is a form of pain that travels along the path of the sciatic nerve, the largest nerve in the human body that branches from the lower back down to each leg. Chiropractic adjustments can minimize the intensity of the pain caused by sciatica.
Reduced Pain During Labour
Many patients report a positive correlation between their chiropractic care and reduced pain during labour, among other healthy birthing benefits.
Effective Chiropractic Care for Children
Just like adults, infants and children can benefit from chiropractic treatment performed by an experienced pediatric chiropractor in Hamilton. Children may experience musculoskeletal pain and injuries, which can be effectively treated by our experienced team of chiropractors. We use similar techniques for children, but ensure that they are gentler and adjusted for their body and age. Besides treating acute injuries and pain, chiropractic treatment can also help prevent the recurrence of musculoskeletal injuries in children.
