Pregnancy Chiropractic
at Ballas Chiropractic

We want our bodies to function at as high a level as possible at all times. This becomes even more important during pregnancy. Chiropractic is completely safe, effective, gentle and totally all natural.

We have treated family members, friends and staff during their pregnancies. Dr. Jessica was adjusted regularly throughout her pregnancy. OB/GYNs refer their moms to us because they know our treatments are safe and very beneficial to mom and her baby.

Why Do I Need Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractic adjustment ensures everything is properly aligned and functioning without restrictions. Better pelvis and spine movement typically make the labor and delivery process shorter and less painful.

Babies are super healthy and moms recover faster. Moms tell us there’s a big difference with a chiropractic delivery. We have mothers who bring their babies straight to us from the hospital before going home. They know firsthand the value of having their newborn adjusted.

Between our four doctors, we have 60 years of experience in our practice. We do everything we can to make our moms comfortable and pain-free. Our table opens up to accommodate their growing stomach. Adjustments are handled differently and are even more gentle. At no point is your baby ever touched.

We see moms all through their pregnancy. We even had a mom in the office when her water broke!

What are the Benefits of Chiropractic?

Helps maintain good health throughout the pregnancy – when your body is in alignment and functioning properly, optimum wellness is possible.

Helps control morning sickness – when vertebrae are out of place, nerves, can be pinched. This can cause nausea and vomiting. Once the adjustment is applied, pressure on the nerve is released.

Relieves back, neck and joint pain – carrying around the extra weight of the baby puts mom’s skeletal system under duress. Inevitably, the new weight gets distributed unevenly causing low back and hip pain, and other joints as well.

Able to turn baby from breech position – Breech deliveries cause difficulties for both the mother and baby. Chiropractic has developed a technique that allows correction from breech to head first in the birth canal.

Shorter labor and delivery – when mom’s body is in balance, joints and ligaments are relaxed. Labor and delivery are quicker and less painful. Many moms have noted how much easier delivering while under chiropractic care is than without.

Faster post-partum recovery – changes in your pelvis can make walking, sitting and sleeping uncomfortable. Add in the new stresses of picking up and carrying your new baby and the loaded diaper bag that goes along it. No wonder you hurt! Chiropractic care can help ease your discomfort and get you back to feeling your best.
