Prenatal Chiropractic

Chiropractic care offers you relief from spinal, joint, and other musculoskeletal issues. If you are pregnant, you may take for granted that treatments aren’t for you, but this is actually an ideal time to see a prenatal chiropractor. Dr. Moe Abtahi of Family Chiropractic & Spinal Health Care Center in Ramsey, NJ, works with women throughout their pregnancies.

Is It Safe to Have Chiropractic Care While Pregnant?
Prenatal chiropractic care is safe during pregnancy. Dr. Abtahi is trained in special techniques that are tailored to meet the unique needs of a pregnant woman’s body and set her up for a healthy delivery. Chiropractic treatment ensures that your body adapts to the changes that come with pregnancy, such as shifts in your center of gravity.

When Should I Start Prenatal Chiropractic Treatments?
Dr. Abtahi recommends that women begin chiropractic treatments within the first trimester and continue throughout their pregnancies. Spinal adjustments and other therapies prevent misalignments and other musculoskeletal issues that are common during pregnancy.

How Does Chiropractic Care Help During Pregnancy?
Chiropractic care is known to provide several benefits for pregnant women. Seeing Dr. Abtahi on a routine basis may prevent neck, shoulder, back, and joint pain. If you have pain and stiffness, chiropractic treatments alleviate these issues to help you focus on taking care of yourself and your baby.

What Should I Look for in a Prenatal Chiropractor?
Look for a chiropractor who is experienced with treatments for pregnant women. Because this is such a special time in your life, you also want to feel comfortable with the chiropractor, and you should find the treatments relaxing. Lastly, make sure that the chiropractor listens with empathy and compassion when you discuss treatments that are uncomfortable.

How Often Should I See a Chiropractor While Pregnant?
The greatest benefits of seeing a prenatal chiropractor come from routine appointments every month during your first trimester. As your pregnancy develops, you should plan to have treatments every two to three weeks during the second and third trimesters. During your last month of pregnancy, Dr. Abtahi may recommend weekly treatments to prepare your body for childbirth.

Should I See a Post-Natal Chiropractor?
Seeing a chiropractor soon after giving birth may help with any postpartum symptoms, as well as stiffness, pain, and fatigue. Dr. Abtahi recommends that you wait until you feel comfortable leaving home to resume chiropractic care after birth.
