Pregnancy causes major body changes for most women. Many pregnant women seek chiropractic care for many issues including relief from: lower back pain, sciatica, and leg cramps.

  • Manual Adjustment techniques

  • Massage

  • Trigger point therapy

  • Graston tissue work

  • Kinesio Taping

  • Pin and Stretch techniques


During pregnancy, a mother's center of gravity shifts forward toward the pelvis as the baby creates more weight in front of the body. This can create a significant amount of stress on the low back and pelvis. Approaching the delivery date, the lower curve in the spinal column (lordotic curve) can also deepen resulting in pain or injury.


The spinal cord contains nerves that send and receive signals from all over the body. Throughout pregnancy, the spine is compressed and stretched in various locations that can lead to irritation of the spinal cord and result in pain radiating throughout the body. Similarly, sciatica in pregnant women can cause pain in the lower back that radiates down the legs.

Pregnancy has the potential to cause shifts in the spine so great that they result in lasting pain following delivery. Tasks such as breast-feeding, carrying the baby, or bending can produce further exacerbation of symptoms post-delivery.


Chiropractic treatment provides a safe and personalized care option during your pregnancy. After a thorough assessment, we will recommend therapy options including adjustments using the Thompson technique.

Many women find that treatments help reduce the need for pain medication and and that follow-up visits are often helpful post-partum. To learn more, call our team at Harris Chiropractic in Middleton, ID today. (208) 424-5100.
