Chiropractic for Pregnancy in Rocklin CA?

many women use chiropractic care throughout their pregnancy

Many Moms-to-be suffer a great deal of discomfort associated with the physical stress of pregnancy. It's common for women in Rocklin CA to visit a chiropractic office regularly for low back pain, as well as other related issues, such as sciatica, leg cramps and headaches as a drug free alternative. However, the effects of chiropractic care during pregnancy are far-reaching and extend way beyond pain relief! Proper function of the nervous system and spinal stability are vitally important to the health and comfort of mom and baby throughout pregnancy and positively affects the birthing process. The following article takes a more in-depth look at the benefits of chiropractic care in Rocklin CA before, during and after the many changes of pregnancy including labor and delivery.


During pregnancy, a woman’s body physically changes to accommodate the growing baby and to prepare for labor and delivery. As the baby grows, the mother’s center of gravity shifts and hormonal changes cause modified gait and postural stress throughout her spine and pelvis. This can aggravate pre-existing conditions or suddenly present new aches and pains. The benefit of regular chiropractic care to correct spinal stress and misalignment can improve posture, relieve pressure on the spine and nerves and reduce tension and pain. Many women find when incorporating chiropractic care into their prenatal wellness, they experience less stress and fatigue, better rest/sleep, improved immune and digestive function and decreased anxiety.
