Pregnancy and Chiropractic at Easton Pond Chiropractic

In the 20 years I have had my practice in Newport County, I have had the privilege of helping many women with the challenges and pleasures of pregnancy. It has been an honor to see their babies grow into healthy adults.

It is important to keep to a regular chiropractic adjustment schedule when you are pregnant to help your body work the most efficiently for your health and that of your growing baby.

Benefits of Chiropractic: 

  • Relief from discomforts caused from the extra weight caused by baby and extra fluids
  • Sciatica pain in buttock and legs 
  • Relief from low back pain caused by redistribution of your body weight 
  • Relief from joint discomfort 
  • Prevention of  pregnancy onset of carpel tunnel 
  • Staying healthy and drug free for the length of your pregnancy 
  • Helpful in regulating blood pressure 
  • Raises your immune system to reduce risk of colds and flu 
  • Reduces or alleviates headaches 
  • Keeps blood sugars regulated for gestational diabetes 
  • Prepares your body for birth 
  • Opens hip joints for birth 
  • Helps you stay in shape and flexible 

My office is set up to assist pregnant women in staying comfortable with their changing body shapes. I have a special table that can accommodate growing bellies. The following photos show a full term pregnant patient getting her weekly adjustment. The table has a drop down plate so that the patient can lay comfortably on her stomach while I assess her spinal alignment for subluxations. (Subluxations are misalignments in the spine which not only cause discomfort but also interference to the nervous system.)
