Prenatal Chiropractic in Delaware

Dr Guadalupe adjusting patients legsPregnancy is a cycle of life filled with changes. You will soon be responsible for another human being; your hormones fluctuate from what you have been accustomed to, and your body’s structure is also changing. As your baby grows, your center of gravity shifts, and you may exert pressure on your back, causing back pain and other discomforts. You may have more muscle aches and pains as well.

The good news is that pregnancy-related musculoskeletal pain and discomfort can be relieved by chiropractic care.


Is Chiropractic Safe During Pregnancy?

Chiropractic care performed by a qualified prenatal chiropractor is safe for you and your baby. There’s nothing to be worried about because prenatal adjustments are so gentle. It’s not what you see on social media; the approach Dr. Guadalupe Colon and Dr. Hedges use differs greatly from the typical neck-cracking videos everyone sees on various social platforms.

Prenatal chiropractors are specially trained to treat pregnant women and have special equipment to make Mother and Baby comfortable throughout treatment.

The Benefits of Chiropractic During Pregnancy

We know chiropractic benefits a mom-to-be during pregnancy in several ways. One of the major ways is reducing lower back pain. Weight gain puts pressure on the spine, leading to lower back pain. Chiropractic care aligns your spine, corrects your posture, and lifts pressure off the sciatic nerve, reducing pain radiating from the lower back to the legs.

You may also find you’re less nauseated following an adjustment because it will open communication between the nervous system and the rest of the body, resulting in better coordination of bodily functions, including hormone regulation.

Adjustments help align your spine and pelvic joints, reducing restrictions during delivery. Chiropractic care also provides relaxation, which is crucial for a smooth birthing process.

What to Expect During Your Chiropractic Appointment

Depending on your individual needs, you will be adjusted by the chiropractor using the Webster Technique, which facilitates a smooth delivery by creating space in the pelvis, putting the baby in an optimal position during delivery, or your adjustment will be a simple and gentle spinal adjustment, which aligns spinal muscles and reduces back pain.

Whether it’s back pain, sciatica, nausea, or headaches you’re experiencing during pregnancy, our prenatal chiropractor can help relieve your symptoms.
