Chiropractic Care While Pregnant

Back pain is a symptom during pregnancy for greater than 50% of pregnant folks. Pregnant bodies go through hormonal and physiologic changes to accommodate a growing fetus. Ligaments relax, and the pelvis and spine can become misaligned or just plain achy.

Chiropractic evaluation and treatment is considered by the medical community to be a safe and effective means of addressing musculoskeletal pain during pregnancy. It can also be helpful in getting things ‘back in line’ after delivery while your ligaments begin to tighten again and your body adapts to the decreased burden.

Many adaptations to adjustment techniques can be used to accommodate safe and comfortable adjustments. Massage and Acupuncture are also effective and safe during pregnancy.

The providers here at TWC are experienced and knowledgeable when it comes to caring for expectant parents and we’d love to help you on your journey.

Reviews From our Satisfied Patients

  • "I was very impressed with the chiropractic care I received from Gabriel. I had received chiropractic in the past for my neck pain, but not to this level of care. After only a few sessions, my symptoms began to disappear, especially my neck pain, and I know I would not have been able to perform to my everyday work functions without the treatment I received."
    John Doe / Portland, OR
  • "As a court reporter, using my hands to type on a daily basis is a requirement. The work is speedy and can often last for hours at a time. Several months ago, every movement I made became excruciatingly painful. I started seeing Gabriel and got started on a program that helped right away. The doctor stressed the importance of my posture and proper hand and arm placement."
    Jane Smith / Portland, OR
  • "I have benefited tremendously from the chiropractic care I received from Gabriel. Not only has the adjustments helped alleviate my stiffness and aches, but it has helped me have more energy and just feel more balanced over all. A few months ago, I was able to resume a favorite hobby of mine - golf. Due to my previous pain, I never thought that’d be possible."
