Prenatal / Pregnancy Chiropractic
Pregnancy Chiropractor in Highland Park, NJ: Dr. Harry Schick
HighPoint Health Center • Alternative & Integrative Medicine for Over 35 Years
During pregnancy, the body goes through amazing changes. With the spine, pelvis and other parts of the body moving around during every stage of a pregnancy, misalignments can occur. If not properly corrected, these misalignments can cause disorders that can affect the nerves, muscles or organs.
Chiropractic care provides for a safer pregnancy:
With the body changing drastically, the spinal column itself moves to accommodate a child and the extra weight. The pelvis undergoes many changes to compensate for the growing baby as well. Risk of misalignment and interference of the nervous system can increase as pregnancy continues. The pelvis supports the growing uterus with specific ligaments. If the bones of the pelvis are out of alignment, this will cause asymmetrical ligament support of the uterus. This results in a more difficult passage for the baby during delivery.
These structural changes can affect the nerves and the spinal cord, disrupting the normal communication of information between the brain and the body. Dr. Schick can adjust the spine and extremities to help the body feel relaxed and subside pain or soreness.
Benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy:
- Decreased lower back pain
- Reduce or eliminate headaches
- Reduction of nerve pain
- Decreases joint pain

During a pregnancy, going to Dr. Schick will help to formulate a specific solution to target the problem areas at every stage. Having regular chiropractic care during a pregnancy can reveal important information regarding a person’s overall heath and provides a base for an effective course of action for most symptoms.
Chiropractic care has been shown to decrease labor time, reduce the need for pain medications, and may even reduce the incidence of postpartum. Those who are pregnant come to chiropractors with problems such as heartburn, morning sickness, low back pain, breech babies, sciatica, swollen ankles and feet, headaches, and constipation.
