Pregnancy changes a woman’s body, adding new abilities, new life—and a variety of new aches and pains. The weight that pregnancy naturally adds, plus the change in hormones, puts more stress on joints and bones. This causes discomfort during movement, and when sitting or reclining.

Pregnancy Chiropractic in Lexington helps patients manage back, hips, and joint paint in a non-pharmaceutical, non-surgical way. Pregnancy Chiropractic can help return pelvic balance, giving your baby as much space as possible to grow, move, and thrive during your pregnancy.

What to Expect

The Pregnancy Chiropractic Process


When you come to Triple Crown Chiropractic & Wellness for pregnancy chiropractic in Lexington, your chiropractor will first consult with you about the pain you're having, and do a diagnostic examination to understand your joint condition and spinal alignment. The chiropractor will also want to know any reports/conditions noted by your OBGYN. They will discuss a personalized treatment plan with you, so that you can ask questions and talk about options. Your provider will always be front and center for all treatment recommendations and decisions.

Your Chiropractic Treatment

Your chiropractor will guide you to a specialized chiropractic table that accommodates your growing belly. As the treatment progresses, there will be no pressure on your belly; you may move into different positions depending on the alignment targets and musculoskeletal stress reduction goals. The treatments will be smooth, gentle, and always baby-positive.

Next Steps

Most of our patients say they feel less pain and reduced stiffness immediately after a treatment. The majority also report feeling more upright, less stressed, and "lighter." In follow-up visit, there is frequent improvements in sleep and even digestion.

Before your Appointment

Before receiving Pregnancy Chiropractic in Lexington, we recommend that you:

Doctor Credentials

Ask for the chiropractor’s credentials. Make sure to ask if they’ve had extra training specifically for working with pregnant women.

Proper Equipment

Ask if they have pregnancy-specific chiropractic equipment, especially a chiropractic table designed to accommodate and support the “baby bump.”

Doctors Permission

Have your OB-GYN’s permission for this care. There may be conditions that prevent you from chiropractic treatment, and it’s paramount these issues are known.

Wear comfortable clothes

Wear clothes that are comfortable, stretchy, and don’t restrict movement. You may be required to lie down and move easily in them.


Communicate all throughout your treatment. All chiropractic treatment involves a communication between you, your chiropractor, and your body.

Stay Hydrated

Drink plenty of water and stay hydrated. This not only helps your body’s systems in general, it works to keep your ligaments and joints lubricated and ready for adjustments.

After your Appointment

To properly care for and get the most out of your Pregnancy Chiropractic in Lexington, we recommend following after your sessions:

Stay hydrated

This helps your joints, your systems, your baby, and helps flush out toxins your body releases after chiropractic.

Try to be active

Movement helps blood flow, increases oxygenation throughout your body, and improves the environment and blood flow for your baby.  Ask your chiropractor about the length of time to let your body adjust post-treatment.

Do your recommended exercises

Your chiropractor will help you determine beneficial exercises that help your body approach your pregnancy with more strength and better health. These exercises also help maintain the positive results of your adjustment, and can help you shorten your labor time.

Eat healthy

Your OB-GYN has probably already discussed this with you for the baby’s sake, and your own health.  For your chiropractic care, eating healthy keeps many processed foods out of the picture. This foods can contribute to issues such as fatigue, joint pain, inflammation, and more.

Don’t sit for long periods

Sitting for hours wreaks havoc on your posture, and can cause blood flow issues in your legs and pelvic region. Ask your OB-GYN about specific chairs that support pregnant women. Your chiropractor will also fill you on on practicing good posture that is pregnancy-specific.
