Although other individuals believe that it puts both the baby and the mother at great risk, that is not likely.

The American Pregnancy Association states: There are no known contraindications to chiropractic care throughout pregnancy. This article from Thrive Chiropractic in Keller will show you important information regarding chiropractic care in Keller for pregnant moms.


Our Keller Gonstead chiropractors are trained to work with women who are pregnant.

Our Keller chiropractors take a specific interest in prenatal and postnatal care and seek additional training via seminars and conventions throughout the nation.

Chiropractic care is the health maintenance of the spinal column, discs, related nerves, and bone geometry without drugs or surgery. It involves the art and science of adjusting misaligned joints of the body, especially of the spine, which reduces spinal nerve stress and therefore promotes health throughout the body. Our team who have been trained to work with pregnant women may use tables that allow their abdomen to be in a very relaxed position. During pregnancy, our doctors will typically recommend exercises and stretches that are safe to do during your process!


Spinal corrections are an amazing way to keep the pelvis/foundation in balance and aligned throughout the pregnancy. Walking and swimming are simple exercises that will allow blood to continue to flow. It is important to keep your muscles engaged during pregnancy which these exercises will do. Please consult with your doctor if you were not active prior to becoming pregnant.

It is highly discouraged to wear heels during pregnancy because they are not stable and can lead to an imbalance of the spine. Flat shoes are much more preferred. When it comes to lifting an object or child, it is very important to ensure you have the proper form or biomechanics while performing these actions. If the object is too heavy, feel free to ask someone to help! If you are lifting, avoid using your back and lift with your legs!

While sleeping, try laying on your side with a pillow between your legs to allow a release of pressure within your lower back. If your job requires sitting at a desk, invest in a footrest to take the stress off your feet. During pregnancy, it is always recommended to get up and walk around every hour. Chiropractic treatment during pregnancy is always beneficial even after giving birth due to the huge changes in your body.
