Pelvic Imbalance During Pregnancy

Pregnancy and Childbirth

At Family Chiropractic & Spinal Health Care Center, we are dedicated to the success of your pregnancy. This includes the health of your little one as it develops into a healthy baby. We offer a range of chiropractic and massage services that are gentle and safe, with the goal of keeping the mother’s body healthy so that the baby can develop unhindered. By supporting the mother’s immune system, we will help you have an easier pregnancy and promote the chances of a safer birth.

Misalignment of the pelvis is responsible for many pregnancy related complications. When the pelvis is aligned incorrectly, the amount of room available for the baby to develop is reduced. This condition is known as intrauterine restraint. Furthermore, a misaligned pelvis can make it difficult for the baby to get into a proper birthing position. Through careful, considered chiropractic adjustment, we keep the spine aligned through the pelvic region, achieving a balance that positions the baby correctly and reduces the likelihood of complications during labor.

Establishing pelvic balance is a great reason to consider chiropractic care during your pregnancy. Our treatment is effective at reducing stress to the uterus and treating the supportive tissues that can be strained during pregnancy. If you are looking to develop and maintain the perfect nurturing environment for your baby-to-be, consider how we can help you. Call our office in Ramsey at (201) 995-9900 and in Passaic at (973) 471-9585.

Congratulations! You are on your way to having a baby. This will be a life-defining moment and we want to make it as comfortable as possible. At Family Chiropractic Spinal Health Care Center, we specialize in chiropractic technique for pregnancy. Our primary concern is providing you with safe, non-invasive support for your body during this time of great physical change. We keep the mother-to-be feeling healthy and help maintain the nurturing environment of the womb.

Chiropractic treatment during pregnancy has a wealth of benefits:

  • Maintain pelvic balance
  • Maintain proper curvature of the spine
  • Reduce aches and pains
  • Decrease stress
  • Decrease tension on the womb
  • Increase immune function

During pregnancy, a woman’s body releases reproductive hormones that weaken the pelvic region by relaxing ligaments to make way for the passage of the baby. The added weight of the baby lowers her center of gravity and puts pressure on the pelvic region. These factors can put excess pressure on the spine, damage tissues and contribute to back pain and sciatica. Furthermore, if the pelvic region is allowed to fall out of alignment, it can reduce the room available for your baby to grow and make the birthing process more difficult.

Chiropractic adjustment keeps the spine, particularly the pelvic region, in alignment. We also offer massage services that help reduce physical and mental stress and ease discomfort associated with pregnancy. If you are interested in finding out how chiropractic can benefit you and your baby, we would love to help. Call our New Jersey offices at (201) 995-9900.
