Pregnancy Chiropractic Colorado Springs

Your body goes through many significant changes during pregnancy, and chiropractic is a safe way to help alleviate the pain and discomfort caused by those changes. Chiropractic adjustments help keep the pelvic bone and other joints sitting where they’re supposed to be, relieving the strain on your muscles and lessening your pain.

Hormones and Joint Health

When you’re pregnant, your body releases a hormone called relaxin to relax the ligaments in the pelvis in preparation for childbirth. But relaxin doesn’t just relax the pelvis; it relaxes all the joints, allowing too much movement in the joint, which causes the muscles to strain, trying to pull everything back in place.

Gentle and Safe

We use blocks and allow gravity to help move the joints, and we work on muscles differently since you can’t lie facedown. We also offer the Webster Technique. We want to make sure you’re as comfortable as possible, not just while you’re at our office, but throughout your entire pregnancy.

Some women are concerned that chiropractic adjustments might cause them to go into labor. Other women HOPE chiropractic adjustments will cause them to go into labor! But chiropractic is completely safe, and nothing we do induces labor, no matter how much you might want it to. As Dr. Lawrence says, “The baby is going to come when it wants to come.”

Help with Delivery

In addition to pain relief, chiropractic adjustments can also help with delivery. Chiropractic helps keep your pelvis in alignment, easing the delivery process, and it is also great for helping turn the baby into the proper position for birth.

We work with many midwives and OBs, some of whom are our patients as well. Your whole childbirth team is on the same page when it comes to helping you have the safest, most comfortable pregnancy and delivery possible.
