There are a lot of changes in a woman’s body during pregnancy, including hormones and weight. It’s both an exciting and challenging time. The changes in a woman’s body during pregnancy are natural and intended to prepare the body for childbirth. Pelvic ligaments loosen due to the hormone relaxing and allow the newborn through the birth canal, and the body begins to gain weight.
Both the change in body structure and weight can lead to nagging symptoms, such as neck and back pain. Pregnancy can also put pressure on the sciatic nerve and cause pain in the legs. Chiropractic prenatal care helps women feel more comfortable during pregnancy and helps position your baby into position for its arrival.
Dr. Tim Erickson is your Naperville chiropractor at Symmetry Chiropractic & Acupuncture who helps women prepare for childbirth and reduce pain during pregnancy.
Dr. Erickson and his chiropractic team are dedicated to helping pregnant women feel more comfortable during pregnancy. Studies have shown that chiropractic care during pregnancy decreased the length of labor, back pain and the need for pain medication. At our prenatal chiropractic clinic, we can develop a personalized treatment plan that works for your specific needs.
Pregnancy chiropractic adjustment helps align the spine properly and reduces or eliminates neck, back and leg pain. It also enhances communication between the brain and body to ensure neurological information for growth.
Chiropractic prenatal also includes therapeutic massage and therapeutic exercises. Massage helps relax the muscles and reduces anxiety. It’s not uncommon for pregnant women to feel a bit anxious during pregnancy. After all, they’re bring a whole new person into the world. With therapeutic exercises, the muscles are strengthened in a safe way for both mom and baby. It also helps get the baby into position for labor and birth.
For expectant mothers, our Naperville chiropractor provides a gentle and safe spinal adjustment to relieve pressure on the pelvis and lumbar spine.

Research published in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology indicates that acupuncture can reduce vomiting and nausea associated with morning sickness, reduce pelvic and lower back pain, reduce pregnancy-induced headaches and even reduce depression. Acupuncture is an ancient healing technique in which hair-thin needles are inserted through the skin at specific points along the meridians to treat the symptoms of pregnancy. It’s a 100 percent safe treatment for expectant moms.
