"Is Seeing a Chiropractor Safe During Pregnancy?
Yes. Chiropractic care during pregnancy is not only safe, but it is highly beneficial to both parent and baby by reducing stress and increasing the flow of blood and essential nutrients. Pregnant people often have aches and pains during pregnancy but may worry about going to the chiropractor. However, according to a chiropractic literature review by Cara L. Borggren, up to 50% of pregnant people experience back pain before delivery.

Ask Your Doctor Before Chiropractic Care If You Have Any of the Following Conditions
In some cases, it may not be appropriate to seek chiropractic care in the interest of both the parent"s and baby"s health. Some of these cases include people experiencing the following during pregnancy:

vaginal bleeding
placenta previa or placenta abruption
ectopic pregnancy
moderate to severe toxemia
When chiropractors go through their training, they learn about chiropractic care during pregnancy. Still, some chiropractors, such as the Yoder Chiropractic Center in Vancouver, Washington, are particularly well-suited for the job.

To adjust pregnant people, we here at Yoder Chiropractic Center use adjusting tables to accommodate our patients" bellies. Keep in mind that no chiropractor should use techniques that put pressure on a pregnant person"s abdomen. A chiropractor can also show pregnant people how to stretch to relieve tension and ease any discomfort effectively."
