Chiropractic for Pregnancy in Knoxville TN

many women use chiropractic care throughout their pregnancy

During a woman’s pregnancy, her body goes through many structural and hormonal changes as her body prepares to carry and deliver a child. As a woman progresses through her pregnancy, her pelvic bones begin to shift, her center of gravity changes, her gait changes, and she gains weight. A combination of all of these factors can create increased stress on the spine and pelvis causing nausea, neck pain, upper back pain, lower back pain, and sciatica. Luckily, chiropractic care in Knoxville TN is a safe, gentle, and natural way to restore alignment, balance, and to decrease pain.

Benefits of prenatal chiropractic in Knoxville TN

Chiropractic care has also been shown to decrease the likelihood of a breech presentation during pregnancy and facilitate faster and easier deliveries. This is made possible by gentle chiropractic adjustments that re-align the pelvis and relax certain ligaments, allowing the baby to move into the optimal position for delivery. Our doctors of chiropractic are trained to evaluate and treat pregnant women using a variety of techniques, as well as recognize emergency symptoms and make proper referrals and recommendations.

Similarly, after delivery a woman’s body continues to experience rapid changes structurally and hormonally. Oftentimes a new mother spends hours in uncomfortable positions nursing, sleeping, or carrying the newborn. Chiropractors use similar adjustment techniques to restore alignment and balance and remove nerve interference to promote healing after delivery. This is also a great time for baby’s first adjustment!

Check out what this practice member had to say about her experience with chiropractic care during her pregnancy:

“After my first adjustment, I had almost immediate relief, and I was sold on chiropractic care. It was eventually discovered that the pain was related to the less than optimal position of the baby. Dr. Jennifer performed something called Webster’s technique that resulted in the baby moving into the ideal position for birth. One week later, our family was blessed with the arrival of our second child, Emerson. I had an un-medicated birth and successfully and quickly delivered an almost 9 lb. baby. I credit the wonderful work of Dr. Jennifer and Dr. Andy and chiropractic care with keeping me from having surgery and for my speedy recovery after the birth of my child.”
