  • Are There Differences Between Regular Chiropractic Care Vs. Prenatal Care?

There are a number of differences between regular chiropractic care and prenatal chiropractic care.

Some of those differences include:

  • The table is adjusted to accommodate your belly.
  • Rather than use standard adjustment techniques that put pressure on the stomach, a chiropractor will use techniques that apply pressure in in other areas for the adjustment.
  • Because pregnant women feel pressure in areas that may be less common, a chiropractor can focus on relieving tension, and restore balance. (This is particularly useful for women who are far along in pregnancy)

If you’d like to learn more about these differences, you can read more at our “Prenatal Care” page, or contact us today with any questions!

  • Any Questions I Should Ask My Chiropractor During Pregnancy?

Some pertinent questions include but are not limited to:

  • Are there any areas that I should be getting adjustment more regularly than others? (If you are experiencing discomfort in your legs, you may need more frequent adjustments because of the pressure from your stomach)
  • How long should I wait before getting an adjustment after giving birth?
  • Does the chiropractor prescribe any kinds of stretching or self-care routines for pregnant women?

What Are The Key Benefits Of Prenatal Chiropractic Care?

There are innumerable benefits for prenatal chiropractic care. Here’s a few of the most impactful benefits women can receive:

  1. Pelvic and spinal alignment. (It is reported that women have had a 25% shorter labor time and less labor issues because the baby could pass through the birth canal easier)
  2. Less pain in key areas like joints, neck, lower back, mid back, and upper back. (You can also get adjustments for specific areas like your legs, which can prove highly beneficial for the knees and ankles)
  3. Faster postpartum healing & recovery can be improved by seeing a prenatal chiropractor. Ask your chiropractor when they recommend making an appointment while pregnant.


With millions of women in the US regularly seeing a chiropractor for prenatal care, it has now become widely known how beneficial it can be to be adjusted before, during and after pregnancy.
