Pregnancy Chiropractic at Capps Chiropractic Clinic

During pregnancy, a woman’s body undergoes a wide range of physical, hormonal and psychological changes, so maintaining a state of health and well-being is essential for both Mother and Baby.

At Capps Chiropractic Clinic, we love helping moms experience a comfortable pregnancy with the help of natural chiropractic care.

Is It Safe?

Yes, chiropractic care is safe during every stage of pregnancy. “I’ve been practicing over 40 years, and the safety is well documented in my practice, but also in the national studies done,” said Dr. Capps. He adjusts his pregnant patients using gentle, specific and targeted adjustments to their spine and pelvis.

What Are the Benefits?

Chiropractic care during pregnancy is beneficial for many reasons:

    • Helps ease nausea
    • Reduces time of labor and delivery
    • Relieves headaches
    • Reduces lower back pain, neck pain, and joint pain
      • Improves mood
      • Lowers risk of preterm delivery
      • Improves recovery time

Frequently Asked Questions

At what point in my pregnancy should I start coming in for care?

Prenatal chiropractic can benefit you at every stage. The earlier you begin, however, the more likely you’ll enjoy a comfortable pregnancy. Dr. Capps recommends moms start coming in the fourth month before pain issues arise. Then they can visit once a month if they don’t have issues. Toward the eighth month, he recommends moms come in every two weeks until delivery.

How does chiropractic help my unborn baby?

Not only does prenatal chiropractic care support your health but it helps to support your unborn child’s health as well.

Should I come in after giving birth?

Yes, we recommend follow-up visits to overcome the effects of delivery. Even natural births can stress an infant’s spine. That’s why we recommend you have your baby adjusted as soon after giving birth as possible. We only apply about the same amount of pressure used to check a tomato for ripeness.
