Chiropractic Care for Pregnant & Postnatal Women

If you are pregnant or recently had a child, you may be experiencing back pain, particularly in your lower region, which is a common issue. While you’re pregnant, you  gain weight, your center of gravity changes, and your hormones relax the ligaments in the joints of your pelvis.* Your body goes through many changes and deals with added stress. Seeking chiropractic care can often prevent or ease your back pain during pregnancy.

Chiropractic care is completely safe for all stages of pregnancy, from pre-conception to post-delivery. Even prior to pregnancy, receiving regular chiropractic adjustments can help prepare the uterus and pelvis for conception and pregnancy by restoring the proper alignment of the spine.

During pregnancy, chiropractic adjustments can help restore posture and reduce the amount of curvature in the spine, which reduces lower back pain. When the pelvis is tilted it may result in less room for your baby to move and grow, and can prevent the baby from moving into a head down position in the eighth month of pregnancy. This ultimately may cause a head-up breech position.

If you are postpartum, back pain will likely not improve immediately after delivery. Your body went through various changes during pregnancy, stress during delivery, and now you are often bending and lifting your infant. Visiting one of our NJ Spine and Wellness chiropractors in either Old Bridge, Freehold, or Matawan can help realign your body from the stress of gaining weight and child birth.

NJ Spine and Wellness provides special prenatal & postnatal massage therapy for those looking to relieve pain, tension or stress. The massage technique is tailored to the expecting or new mother’s needs and comfort level. Prenatal and postnatal massages at NJ Spine and Wellness are different than standard massages with the body being positioned and supported in a specific way to make you comfortable during and after pregnancy.

Massage therapy during pregnancy aids the circulatory and lymphatic systems, which keeps blood flowing to both the mother and baby. Studies also show that it can reduce anxiety, decrease symptoms of depression, relieve muscle aches and joint pains, and improve labor outcomes and newborn health. A prenatal massage can also help support mental health and restore energy.

Many women also experience sciatic nerve pain later in pregnancy as the uterus rests on muscles of the pelvic floor and lower back. The pressure of the uterus spreads tension to the muscles of the upper and lower leg, causing them to swell and put pressure on nearby nerves. Massage therapy can help reduce sciatic nerve pain during pregnancy, as it addresses the inflamed nerves by helping to release the tension on nearby muscles.

Once you are in the postpartum period, postnatal massages can help restore your body and can also relieve muscle tension or stress that resulted from your pregnancy.
