Chiropractic care is one of the best ways to maintain adequate health. When an individual is pregnant, it causes the body to go through a number of changes that place pressure on the spinal column, discs, and nerves. Chiropractic care during pregnancy helps to reduce the dependency upon medications and instead focuses on adjusting the joints of the body to reduce nerve pain and stress.

Why Should I Have Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy
During pregnancy, there are a number of changes that occur in the endocrinological system, as well as physiological changes. OC Medical and Chiropractic is committed to creating an environment that helps your developing baby. We often see pregnant women suffer from the following changes to their spine and joints:
- Increased back curve
- Protruding abdomen
- Pelvic changes
- Postural adaptations
Establishing proper pelvic alignment will allow for enough room for your developing baby. A misaligned pelvis can lead to delivery issues, as it is challenging for the baby to move properly through the birth canal.

- Controlling nausea symptoms
- Reducing labor and delivery time
- Relieving joint, neck, and back pain
- Reducing the risk of a cesarean delivery
- Maintaining a healthy pregnancy
