Frequently Asked Questions About Pregnancy Chiropractic Care

        pregnancy care

As excited as you may be about your pregnancy, you may also be concerned about how your body will react to the physical changes that occur over the next 9 months -- or you may already be experiencing some discomfort as a result. You may also be wondering how you can give your developing baby the healthiest possible start in life, and how chiropractic care can help. Here are the answers to frequently asked questions regarding pregnancy chiropractic care at Lynch Chiropractic Center.

  • What are some of the common discomforts experienced during pregnancy? Pregnancy may produce a wide range of aches, pains, and other unpleasant sensations. Common issues include lower back pain, neck pain, headaches, edema (swelling) of the hands and feet, nausea, and mood swings.
  • Why do these discomforts occur? The body makes room for the growing fetus by altering its spinal alignment and weight distribution. These changes, along with the weight gain that occurs during this time, places stress on the musculoskeletal and nervous systems, causing joint pain, muscle spasms, neurological symptoms, and functional problems that may affect your systemic health.
  • How can chiropractic care improve comfort and function in pregnant women? Chiropractic care can help normalize the positions of joint components, easing pressure on nerves and nerve roots in the process. This form of treatment can minimize muscular strain and joint pain while also helping your entire body operate more efficiently.
  • How does my musculoskeletal alignment affect my chances for a healthy delivery? The pelvic ligaments typically loosen during pregnancy in preparation for delivery. But this change can destabilize the sacral spine, encouraging alignment problems that may interfere with the fetus's ability to assume a head-downward position for birth. If you're facing a breech birth, you may need to undergo a C-section instead of having a normal delivery.
  • Can chiropractic care help me avoid a breech birth or C-section? In many cases, chiropractic care can indeed help you steer clear of a C-section due to a breech birth. Our ability to correct sacral and pelvic alignment issues makes it easier to your fetus turn around in the womb, facilitating a normal, healthy delivery.
  • Is chiropractic care safe during pregnancy? Chiropractic care is completely safe during pregnancy when performed by a skilled, experienced chiropractor. It's also been shown to relieve back pain in 70 percent of pregnant patients. Dr. Lynch knows how to make gentle, precise adjustments that optimize your health and wellness -- and therefore the health and wellness of the fetus as well.
  • What other helpful techniques can complement pregnancy chiropractic care? In addition to pregnancy chiropractic care, we can provide with gentle stretching exercises, massage therapy, and other safe, natural techniques.

  • "Lynch Chiropractic Center is home to a team of some amazing professionals. The care that you are given is consistent and the information that is shared is amazing. The Lynch family truly cares for each of their patients and makes you feel welcome and goes out of their way to get you the best care. Dr. Ryan Lynch personally called another chiropractor for me in Louisiana when I went on vacation to ensure that I continued my treatments while out of town. Courteous, Caring, Sincere, Honest, & Professional are terms I often use when I talk about Lynch Chiropractic Care!!"

  • "Dr. Ryan Lynch has been adjusting my back and neck for the past month, and I will have to say that each time I go, I come out feeling more mobile and less in pain. He also explains what he is about to do and why, making you feel more involved in the procedure. The aftermath of my curved spine and a motorcycle accident started to show in forms of discomfort and pain in the recent months, and this was the place a friend of mine had highly recommended. I am glad to have taken the recommendation."

  • "Today was my daughters first visit. She was evaluated and had x rays. Ryan Lynch is her doc and he was so informative. He not only addressed her but he addressed me as well as her mother. I would recommend Lynch chiropractor to anyone who is experiencing any neck back or any other pain. The office is clean the staff are all wonderful very sweet. These are the people to see look at their reviews they have a 4.9 star rating doesn't get much better than that."
