Chiropractic and Pregnancy

One of the best times for a mom to get under chiropractic care is during pregnancy. Her ever changing body from increase in weight to increase in hormones can lead to discomfort including back pain.

Another consideration for expectant mothers is intrauterine constraint. The ligaments that connect the uterus to the pelvis and help to support and hold the uterus in proper position can become shortened and strained from minor pelvic misalignments and can cause a pulling effect on the uterus. However, if the pelvis is in balance and moving properly the uterus will be fully supported and allow for optimal room for the baby to move in utero.

Dr. Jeanne Ohm, Chiropractor and director of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association elaborates further on this condition in the following article:
