Pregnancy Chiropractic at Balanced Movement Chiropractic

Studies have shown that chiropractic care during pregnancy is extremely safe. In addition, it’s been proven to speed labor and delivery by helping keep the spine and hips in proper alignment. When the hips and spine are aligned optimally, the baby has more room to get into the ideal position for birth.

At Balanced Movement Chiropractic, we have over a decade of experience helping moms-to-be have the pregnancy and delivery they want. Dr. Justin Jesperson has extensive training in prenatal chiropractic care and is certified by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) in the Webster Technique. We use safe, non-invasive INSiGHT™ scans to identify areas of nervous system interference.

How Does Chiropractic Help During Pregnancy?

When you’re pregnant, the hormone relaxin is produced to allow the ligaments in the pelvis to loosen in preparation for delivery. Unfortunately, relaxin can cause the joints and ligaments of the spine and pelvis to become too loose and, combined with your shifting center of gravity, cause misalignment of your lower back and pelvis. When we restore proper alignment to your spine, your nervous system can work as it should and communication between your body and brain flows optimally. The result can be relief from symptoms like:

  • Back pain
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Foot numbness
  • Headaches
  • Heartburn
  • Sciatica
  • Sleep disturbances

Chiropractic care is a natural way of addressing the underlying cause of such issues, creating a healthier pregnancy for both Mom and Baby.

When Should I Seek Care?

We tell patients the best day to start with prenatal chiropractic care is today. The sooner we can get your spine and nervous system working as they should, the more time you have to enjoy a healthy, comfortable pregnancy—and the more time your baby has to grow and develop optimally.

A properly-functioning nervous system is also important for conception, and we encourage women to begin chiropractic care even before they’re pregnant to help their body get in the best shape possible for conceiving and growing a new human.
