Pregnancy Chiropractic at
Brannigan Chiropractic Center, PC

When asked about the safety of prenatal chiropractic, we assure patients it’s safer than any other modality. Chiropractic has been proven safe and effective during every phase of pregnancy. In fact, chiropractic provides several benefits to moms as their baby grows.

How Can Chiropractic Help Me?

Dr. Brannigan will assess your condition early in the pregnancy. If there are no issues, you’ll be checked 1-2 times per month. Visits will become more frequent as your pregnancy advances.

Other benefits include

  • Helps with morning sickness—when vertebrae are out of place, nerves can be pinched. This may cause nausea and vomiting. After adjustment, pressure on the nerve is released.
  • Shorter labor and delivery—when a mom’s body is in balance, joints and ligaments relax. Research has shown that chiropractic can reduce the duration of labor by as much as 33%.
  • Faster postpartum recovery—changes in your pelvis can make walking, sitting and sleeping uncomfortable. Add in the new stresses of picking up and carrying your 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.


Why Do I Need Chiropractic?

After a woman conceives, her body starts getting ready for delivery and birth by releasing hormones. These hormones send signals to the pelvis, and its supporting ligaments, to relax and start making room for the baby. Since these ligaments also help keep the pelvis from moving out of place, misalignments may occur.

Chiropractic adjustment corrects the misalignment, reducing any pain or discomfort you may be feeling. In addition, your baby now has more space to grow and move into the optimal birthing position. When your baby is more comfortable, you will be too.
