Prenatal Chiropractic Care with our West Haven Chiropractor
With many years of combined experience and a dedication to providing the highest quality of care to patients of all ages, we are proud to be your trusted local prenatal chiropractor in West Haven. Our friendly and skilled chiropractic care team understands the value of preventative holistic treatment for expectant mothers and we are happy to help relieve your pain and discomfort during pregnancy.
Benefits of Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy
Chiropractic care treatment is utilized to improve spine health while addressing misalignments in the spinal column, discs, nerves and the surrounding muscles and joints. Safe, effective and prescription drug-free, this non-invasive treatment method is ideal for helping to manage the pain and discomfort expectant mothers may experience throughout pregnancy.
Suing both manual and instrument-based spinal manipulations, our West Haven chiropractor can work to gradually correct any subluxations of the spinal vertebrae to provide fast pain relief, reducing inflammation and restoring proper range of motion.
Is Chiropractic Care Safe for Expectant Mothers?
Yes! In fact, chiropractic care is one of the safest and effective treatment methods available today. With specific training in prenatal and postnatal care, our chiropractor is qualified to apply advanced techniques that are specifically designed to adjust the pregnant woman’s body to manage pain. Additionally, with the help of corrective exercises that can easily be completed form the comfort of your own home, we can teach you to safely stretch your body to relieve aches and pains.
During pregnancy, women experience several different physiological and endocrinological changes that the body must make to prepare for your developing baby. The following changes to your body can result in misalignments in the spine and joints:
- Pelvic changes
- A protruding abdomen and/or an increased back curvature
- Postural adaptations
A misalignment in the pelvis may reduce the amount of room that your developing baby has to grow and make it difficult to get baby into the proper position for a safe delivery. Through targeted chiropractic adjustments, we can help you to establish pelvic balance and alignment as well. The main goal of prenatal chiropractic treatment is to help make you more comfortable throughout your pregnancy and to properly prepare the body for a natural and non-invasive birth whenever possible.

- Maintaining an overall healthier pregnancy
