Upper Cervical Chiropractor for Pregnancy in New Jersey

A woman's body undergoes significant changes throughout pregnancy, and it's common for women to begin experiencing discomfort and pain in different areas of their body, especially in the back. Upper cervical chiropractic care during pregnancy can provide relief for aches and pains. One of those changes is the production of a hormone called relaxin. Relaxin helps the ligaments that connect bones to become more flexible. This new flexibility allows the pelvis to change positions. Often pregnant women will experience new misalignments due to the presence of relaxin and changes in their center of gravity.

Are Chiropractors Safe for Pregnant Individuals?

The way upper cervical chiropractors deliver adjustments is gentle and safe for women during pregnancy. Here at Upper Cervical Chiropractic of Monmouth, our chiropractors deliver noninvasive, low-force care for pregnant women. Unlike other chiropractic methods, which involve cracking, popping and twisting, our techniques rely on precise, light force.

From helping relieve discomfort to encouraging a breached baby to turn and shortening labor time, there are many benefits to getting adjusted while pregnant.

What Is the QSM3 Approach?

The QSM3 approach focuses on how the first vertebra in the neck influences the entire spine and body. Even though the adjustment is made at the neck, pregnant women can restore function and experience results throughout their entire body.

The adjustments are comfortable and based on precise mathematical calculations, physics and biomechanics. Instead of the “articular,” or bone out of place model, we've adopted a “tonal,” or body out of place model, which looks at how tension plays a role in your body's well-being.

Upper Cervical Care During Pregnancy

Upper Cervical Chiropractic of Monmouth specializes in upper cervical chiropractic care for pregnant women. As part of Corrective Care Chiropractic, we focus on your spinal function and central nervous system (CNS) and its effect on the endocrine system (hormonal system). We pay special attention to the alignment of the pelvis and sacrum along with the top two spine bones, the atlas and axis, and how they influence the whole body. Our adjustments are custom-tailored and gentle without the use of any traditional twisting,  turning or popping.

Our chiropractors will determine what structural abnormalities influence your discomfort and pain through corrective care. By looking at the cause instead of focusing on pain control, our chiropractors will guide you through the different stages of your pregnancy while helping to make pregnancy, labor and delivery as comfortable as possible.

Once we evaluate your body mechanics and nervous system, our chiropractors will develop an individualized action plan based on your specific needs to support you throughout your pregnancy.
