Gentle Chiropractic Care: Great for Mom and Her Growing Baby

Mom carrying little babyWhen people ask if pregnant women can be adjusted, Dr. Jackie responds with a hearty “Absolutely!” Chiropractic care has been proven safe and effective for both Mom and Baby. As a matter of fact, your baby is never touched during an adjustment.

The strain on Mom’s joints and muscles, balance issues, and pressure from an enlarged abdomen during pregnancy are substantial. As she gains weight, even 10 lbs. of extra weight in the belly can put 150 lbs. of extra pressure on her lower back. Making sure she’s comfortable and pain-free is good for her and the baby.

How We Help You

The second question we get asked the most is how can I get adjusted if I can’t lie down on the table? Good question! It’s true, chiropractic adjustments normally require patients to lie face down. To accommodate our moms-to-be, and ensure they’re as comfortable as possible, we have pregnancy pillows that support your changes from Day One until delivery. It’s all about you Mom.

Patients also ask when they should start chiropractic care. The sooner you start care, the better your pregnancy will be. Dr. Jackie advises not to wait until you have pain before coming in for care. She often finds patients have subluxations they weren’t aware of because there was no pain. It’s always better to be proactive before a problem occurs.

With over 27 years of experience, your Houston chiropractor, Dr. Jackie has perfected her technique to provide an adjustment that’s effective, but not aggressive, using a light, gentle touch that moms enjoy.
