Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Is Chiropractic care safe during pregnancy?

Yes, Chiropractic care is safe during pregnancy when performed by a trained and certified practitioner. It’s also important that they have the right equipment that can support and cradle your bump while you’re being adjusted.

Our Prenatal Chiropractors are licensed and trained to work with pregnant people to ensure the safety and comfort of both mother and baby. And we have all the equipment needed to make expectant mothers feel right at home.

That being said, if you’re in doubt, it’s always best to check in with your OB-GYN to be absolutely sure. There may be certain instances that warrant extra caution, like in the case of vaginal bleeding for unknown cause, preeclampsia, or if this is a high-risk pregnancy.

What are the benefits of Chiropractic care during pregnancy?

A study evaluated the effectiveness of manual treatment of the spine in reducing/eliminating pregnancy symptoms showed the following success rate in a group of 115 pregnant women with pregnancy symptoms during a normal pregnancy, eliminating: headaches (97.3%), vomiting (95.9%), dizziness (94.5%), nausea (92.9%), neck pain (92.9%), insomnia (91.9%), heartburn (88.8%), hyperosmia (78.5%) and hyper salivating (78%).

A licensed and trained Prenatal Chiropractor can help you through your pregnancy journey in many ways:

  • Relief from Common Discomforts:
    Pregnancy often brings a range of discomforts, including back pain, pelvic pain, and sciatica. These issues arise due to the body’s changing biomechanics, weight gain, and hormonal changes that relax ligaments and joints. Chiropractic care uses gentle adjustments to alleviate these discomforts, helping you move more freely and enjoy a more comfortable pregnancy.
  • Improved Pelvic Alignment:
    Proper pelvic alignment supports the growing uterus and provides an optimal environment for the baby. Misalignments in the pelvis can lead to discomfort and may restrict the baby’s movements. Chiropractic adjustments, especially techniques like the Webster Technique, help maintain and improve pelvic alignment, promoting a healthier and more comfortable pregnancy.
  • Support for Spinal Health:
    As your baby grows, the added weight and shift in your center of gravity can place significant stress on your spine. This can lead to postural changes and spinal misalignments, resulting in pain and discomfort. Chiropractic care focuses on maintaining a healthy spine, ensuring your nervous system functions optimally, and reducing stress on your musculoskeletal system.
  • Keeping You Active:
    Chiropractic care helps you maintain mobility and flexibility, allowing you to continue engaging in physical activities safely. By relieving pain and improving alignment, we focus on making sure you stay active and enjoy a more energetic pregnancy.
  • Non-Invasive and Drug-Free Pain Relief:
    Many pregnant women prefer avoiding medications whenever possible. Chiropractic care offers a safe, non-invasive, and drug-free way to manage pain and discomfort during pregnancy.

By incorporating Chiropractic care into your prenatal routine, you can experience these benefits and support a healthier, more active, and comfortable pregnancy journey.

How often should I see a Chiropractor while pregnant?

This depends on your individual needs and symptoms. Typically, pregnant people benefit from regular visits, which may range from once a week to once a month.

If you feel lethargic or experience aches and pains, you may go in for more visits right from your first trimester. Alternatively, you may schedule once-a-month visits in your first trimester and then increase the frequency in the second and third to help keep your body active.

Either way, based on our initial consultation, we recommend a schedule that best supports your health and pregnancy.

Is The Webster Technique safe for pregnant women?

Yes, the Webster Technique is safe for pregnant women. It’s a specialised Chiropractic technique designed to optimise pelvic alignment and is specifically developed to be gentle and effective for pregnancy.

At what stage of pregnancy can I start Chiropractic care?

You can start Chiropractic care at any stage of your pregnancy. Early care can help address initial discomforts and support overall wellness, while care later in pregnancy can aid in preparing your body for labour and delivery.

Most women begin Chiropractic care in their first trimester. You get to address the initial discomfort and prepare your body to better handle the postural changes that are expected in the later stages. But if you’re in the third trimester and feel like you’re losing significant mobility, you can still reach out to your Chiropractor for supportive therapy.

Are Chiropractic adjustments painful during pregnancy?

No, Chiropractic adjustments during pregnancy are not supposed to be painful. They’re performed a lot more gently than more forceful manipulations otherwise to ensure the comfort and safety of both, the mother and baby. Many women find the adjustments to be relieving and relaxing.

Will Chiropractic care help with breech presentation?

Chiropractic care, particularly the Webster Technique, is designed to minimise spinal misalignments in pregnant women and help keep the body more aligned and balanced. Turning a breech baby is outside of the scope of practice of chiropractors, and it’s best to discuss your specific situation with your chiropractor and your birth team.

Can Chiropractic help alleviate morning sickness?

One study that evaluated the effectiveness of manual treatment of the spine in reducing/eliminating pregnancy symptoms showed a 92.9% success rate in eliminating nausea in a group of 115 pregnant women with pregnancy symptoms during a normal pregnancy.

Your Chiropractor works on realigning your spine (spinal cord and spinal nerves) during adjustments, both of which are part of the nervous system. When we focus on the overall function of the nervous system, it may also help address conditions like nausea.

Some women have reported reduced intensity of morning sickness as their overall spinal and nervous system health improves. However, results can vary from person to person.

Is Chiropractic care covered by insurance specifically for pregnant women?

Many insurance plans cover Chiropractic care, including for pregnant women. It’s best to check with your insurance provider to understand your specific coverage and any out-of-pocket costs.

MYo Lab offers our patients the option of direct billing for several extended health care insurance companies for our Chiropractic, Physiotherapy, and Massage Therapy services. We also offer Exercise Rehab Sessions, so you can participate in Personal Training and be billed through extended health care. Our Member Services team will be happy to run a benefits check for you during your first visit with us!

Will I get stretching exercise instructions that are safe during the course of my pregnancy?

Absolutely! We believe in complete care and empowering our patients to get active and stay active and healthy. Part of our comprehensive care includes providing you with safe and effective stretching exercises to help maintain your mobility and comfort throughout your pregnancy. These exercises are tailored to your individual needs and stage of pregnancy.
