Chiropractic care is highly recommended for supportive care during pregnancy. As the body undergoes significant changes during pregnancy, including hormonal and biomechanical changes, chiropractic care can help maintain joint mobility and nerve system health, and maintain optimal function for the musculoskeletal system.  Pregnancy places additional stress on the spine and pelvis, which can often lead to a variety of symptoms such as lower back pain, sciatica, and pelvic pain. Chiropractors can help alleviate these symptoms and promote a healthy pregnancy by using gentle chiropractic adjustments, stretches, exercises, and lifestyle recommendations. 

Chiropractic care during pregnancy is safe and effective, and studies have shown that it can help reduce the need for pain medication and interventions during childbirth. Additionally, regular chiropractic care during pregnancy can help improve lumbosacral mobility and reduce the risk of complications during delivery. At Riverside Chiropractic, we regularly provide care for mothers during pregnancy, and have special chiropractic maternity pillows that allow for safe assessment and treatment, right from conception through to full gestation.
