Pregnancy in Winston-Salem NC

Chiropractic Winston-Salem NC Pregnancy

During pregnancy, a woman’s body undergoes rapid and dramatic changes-not just hormonally but also structurally and physically. Many women experience pelvic pain, mid-back pain, and lumbar (low-back) pain.

When pregnant, you’re adding extra weight to your spine that it’s not used to carrying. Those extra pounds can cause discomfort that chiropractic can help with. As medication isn’t an option during pregnancy, drug-free chiropractic care can help keep moms-to-be comfortable. See how pregnancy chiropractic in Winston-Salem NC can help you.

Gentle & Comfortable Adjustments in Winston-Salem NC

Pelvic adjustments can help shift the pelvis to its optimal position which also may allow your baby to get into the proper birth position. Dr. Rahman can use trigger point therapy to address the round ligament in front that can tighten up and cause some pain later on in the third trimester.

The primary table that Dr. Rahman uses in the office is adjustable so he can open up the stomach piece so that the belly can hang through.

We also have a knee chest table that involves the patient kneeling comfortably on a padded cushion, and resting their chest on a chiropractic adjusting table. With this table, pregnant patients can get on their hands and knees and their belly completely hangs unobstructed. On the bench, patients can safely get adjusted on their side. Every table in our practice can be used even in the third trimester.

What to Expect

Because X-rays, of course, aren’t an option during pregnancy, we will rely on a visual test to see how your hips are rotated, either in a standing or lying-down position. Dr. Rahman also will check all the joints in your body, looking for ones that aren’t moving properly.

Dr. Rahman is gentle with all his patients but especially with pregnant patients who are concerned as to whether an adjustment will harm their unborn child. Adjustments are very safe and he is always as gentle as possible.

How Often Should I Come in?

It depends on how you are feeling and doing. We may recommend that you come in weekly or every other week to help you be as comfortable as possible throughout your pregnancy.

How Dr. Jamaal’s Son Was Helped

“One day I noticed that my older son was having balance issues and it didn’t look like his SI joints were moving equally when he was trying to walk. I performed a small adjustment and within two days, he was completely walking,” said Dr. Jamaal.

He thought perhaps it was just a coincidence, but the same thing was happening with Dr. Jamaal’s niece. He also did a slight adjustment on her and within 10 minutes she walked across the entire living room. Dr. Jamaal knew that it wasn’t a coincidence and that chiropractic does indeed make a difference!

Chiropractic Winston-Salem WI Pediatic

Is it safe and gentle?

Yes, pediatric chiropractic care is highly safe, gentle, and painless. “As their joints and bones are forming it takes a lot less force to adjust a child. Sometimes I don’t give high-velocity adjustments but keep sustained pressure on the joint. I may push the joint softly and repetitively for a couple of minutes. That’s all the work that needs to be done and kids bounce back quickly,” said Dr. Jamaal. Some babies even go to sleep right after their adjustment!

Can kids of all ages benefit?

Yes! If your child has a particular issue that needs to be addressed, Dr. Jamaal will provide you with a treatment plan to help your little one get better.

Do children need to come in for care as often as adults?

Kids recover much quicker than adults and don’t need as much care. As Dr. Jamaal encourages all of his patients to get maintenance care, he recommends that children come in about once every 6-8 weeks.

Why should I have my infant adjusted soon after they’re born?

Chiropractic can gently and safely remove any subluxation that may be present in your child’s nervous system allowing your newborn to experience healthy growth and development.
