Pregnancy puts a whole new level of stress on the back, neck, and other parts of the body. Unfortunately, however, pregnant women are limited in the medication they can take to help deal with pain and stress. That makes chiropractic treatment a great alternative, as it is medication-free. At Peak Chiropractic in Celebration, FL, our chiropractic services can help to reduce inflammation and relieve your pain. Learn more about how chiropractic care can be beneficial for pregnant women, and make an appointment with us today!
Common Sources of Pain During Pregnancy
During the nine-month period you are pregnant, your body undergoes changes that can lead to a variety of aches and pains. This is due to the additional weight and strain on your body. Many of the most common types of pain women experience during pregnancy can be treated effectively with chiropractic therapy, including:
The American Pregnancy Association confirms that 50-70% of pregnant women suffer from back pain. The counterbalance caused by having excess weight in the front can cause the back to become overstrained, which can result in injury.
Chiropractic treatments such as spinal adjustments and massage therapy are specially designed to treat back pain without medication. These treatments can reduce your inflammation while restoring mobility and relieving discomfort.
Neck Pain & Headaches
For similar reasons, women often develop neck pain and headaches during pregnancy. Much of this pain is caused by inflammation. Chiropractic treatments can reduce inflammation in your back, neck, head, and other areas to help ease and even eliminate your pain.
Medical Limitations During Pregnancy
It’s crucial to understand the various ways your treatment options are limited during pregnancy. For example, few doctors will provide local anesthesia for a pregnant patient due to the risks involved. The same is true for certain medications. Since surgery and medications may not be viable options for pregnant women to treat pain, chiropractic care is often recommended, because it poses no risk to the patient or their baby.

Our Top Recommendation – Chiropractic Adjustments with Ultralign
If you think of chiropractic care as a doctor bending and snapping your joints in different angles, then you’ll be surprised at the difference the innovative Ultralign adjustment system can make. The Ultralign system completely redefines your experience, providing advanced neck and spine care through an industry-leading computerized device. You can remain fully clothed while we make quick, targeted alignments without the old “popping” or “cracking” sound. With Ultralign, adjustments are completely safe and comfortable, with no manual rotation or thrusting. This is our top recommendation for those looking for pain relief during pregnancy!
At Peak Chiropractic, we offer two types of massage therapy: Hydromassage and the Infinity Zero Gravity Chair. While we first suggest trying out our Ultralign treatment, both of these may also provide relief from back pain and other symptoms:
- Hydromassage. Hydromassage is an innovative form of massage therapy that harnesses the power of water to relax your muscles and relieve pain. All you have to do is lay down on the Hydromassage bed, and we’ll program in a massage routine that’s designed to treat your specific symptoms. This is one of the most advanced types of massage available anywhere, and it may be the key to eliminating your back and neck pain while you’re pregnant.
- Infinity Zero Gravity Chair. For a deep massage that targets your exact areas of tension, the Infinity Zero Gravity Massage Chair is an easy and convenient option. After a short time in our innovative massage chair, you’ll be much more relaxed, and your muscles will be relieved of tension. Come in and see how our medical-grade massage chair can reduce your inflammation and relax your muscles!
