Changes To The Body During Pregnancy

Recently a woman who was approaching the end of her pregnancy (during one of our record hot summers) looked at me and said, “Doc, pregnancy is not for sissies!” We both laughed, but in all honesty, there’s a lot of truth to that statement. The changes that happen in a female’s body during pregnancy are extreme and yet extraordinary. The changes are all geared towards one goal, bringing a healthy baby into the this world.

However, there are physical challenges that go along with these changes. Adjustments in body weight and posture can cause a variety of joint pain, gait abnormalities, headaches, and peripheral neuropathies. These can bring discomfort to what is already a challenging and sometimes anxious time for expectant mothers.

The typical pregnant patient in our office presents with back, pelvic, and hip pain, and sometimes neck pain and headaches, with numbness in the hands or feet. These can often happen early in the pregnancy before the patient has experienced significant body changes. If left untreated, the symptoms will typically worsen with time.

How Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy Can Help

With our pregnant chiropractic patients, we focus not only on the presenting symptoms but on what we mentioned above – bringing a healthy baby into the world.

We have three main goals with our pregnant patients:

  • Get the patient pain-free
  • Restore proper alignment and range of motion to the pelvis and the neck
  • Help prepare the body for delivery and recovery


It is critical to have the pelvic girdle moving appropriately. This not only diminishes the low back and hip pain but makes the birthing process much easier on the mother and child. We began to track delivery times in our patients, and we are currently averaging between 3-5 hours. We believe this is because a moving pelvis makes for a smoother birth. We can assure you, every mother we treat tells us how much they really appreciate that!



We also focus on the neck because every new mom finds herself in posture after giving birth that consists of looking down at their new baby for hours a day. New moms are constantly looking down at their babies for extended periods of time and often suffer from neck pain because of this. It is important to us that our new moms are able to care for their babies without neck pain or headaches. The changes in hormones and lack of sleep are difficult enough without pain and headaches, and we make this a priority for all the expecting moms that we treat.

There is a lot that goes into bringing a healthy baby into the world. One thing we encourage all our new moms to consider is to prepare their bodies well.


Chiropractic is excellent for getting rid of the pain associated with pregnancy and preparing the body for what is to come after giving birth. We have specialized in treating expecting mothers for the last 20 years. If you are looking for a pregnancy chiropractor to partner with during this extraordinary time, we would be honored to help you.
