Dr. Jimenez Pregnancy Chiropractic Team. Chiropractic care is the health maintenance of the spinal column, discs, related nerves, and bone geometry without medications or surgery. It combines the art and science of adjusting misaligned joints of the body, including the spine, which reduces spinal nerve stress, thus promoting optimal health throughout the body. All chiropractors are trained to work with women who are pregnant.
Investing in the fertility and pregnancy wellness of women who are pregnant is routine care for most chiropractors. Specialized chiropractors take a specific interest in prenatal and postnatal care and go through additional training. Chiropractors trained to work with pregnant women may use tables that are made to adjust for pregnant women and will use techniques that avoid unnecessary pressure on the abdomen. A chiropractor trained to work with pregnant women will provide the patient with exercises and stretches that are safe to use during pregnancy.
