Prenatal Care

Chiropractic care was designed for health maintenance of the spinal column, discs, related nerves, and bone geometry without the use of drugs or surgery. Chiropractors adjust misaligned joints of the body, particularly of the spine, which decreases spinal nerve stress, promoting health throughout the body.

There are no known issues involving chiropractic care during pregnancy. Most chiropractors are trained to work with pregnant women, while some take an interest in prenatal and postnatal care and get additional training.

Chiropractors who are educated in working with pregnant women generally use tables adjusted for a pregnant body. When performing the chiropractic techniques, they avoid unnecessary pressure on the belly.

Visiting a chiropractor at Optimize Chiropractic in Cornelius can help you determine if your pregnancy is causing your pain. A chiropractor can give a detailed examination and can check if the spine could benefit from an adjustment.

During pregnancy, there are numerous changes to the body, both physically and endocrinological. They occur when the body starts preparing for creating a nurturing environment for the developing baby.

Changes can include misaligned spine or joints protruding abdomen and increased back curve, changes in your pelvis, and postural adaptions.

Chiropractic care can help establish balance to your pelvic and align your spine. According to the American Pregnancy website, if your pelvis is misaligned, this means that there is not enough room available for the developing baby.

This condition is called intrauterine constraint and it can negatively influence the mother’s ability to have a natural and non-invasive birth (aka c-section). American Pregnancy also reports that the nervous system is the master communication system to all the body systems, including the reproductive system. When the spine is aligned, it helps the whole body work more effectively.

At Optimize Chiropractic, our aim is to apply adjustments to the neck, back, and pelvic area to improve any skeletal issues you have developed and create an environment that provides effective communication between the body and brain, typically the base of all pain issues during pregnancy.

Lisa B.'s 5 star Google review for nerve issues

Dr Ennis has helped me with some nerve issues. He is thorough and takes the time to listen and explain each step he takes. I was hesitant to see a chiropractor at first but he has eased my fears. Half way thru my treatment schedule and I’m feeling more like myself already. Highly recommend him to all.
