Chiropractic Care for Pregnancy
Why to Get Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy
Pregnancy is an important and sensitive time. A woman’s body is changing throughout those months to prepare for birth. It’s normal for a mother to want to feel her best and have the best health for herself and her baby. Fortunately, chiropractic care can help.
We tailor care to each person and their condition and needs. During pregnancy, women are dealing with certain pains and changes. While it’s always a good idea to try natural drug-free care that works with your body and gets to the root of symptoms, it’s especially beneficial during pregnancy. Pregnant women can’t take many medications and other substances that may negatively affect them and the baby and it’s important to help the body be in peak functioning condition to help pregnancy and labor go as smoothly as possible.
Here is one of our pregnant patients sharing how our chiropractic care has helped her.
How We Can Help
As chiropractors we help treat subluxations—spinal bones with improper motion or position that affect nerve communications between your brain and your body. When those communications are disrupted, pain and illness can occur.
We can also show pregnant women gentle stretches to help strengthen their body and relieve tension and pain.
Pregnant women’s changing bodies affect their posture and movement.
According to the American Pregnancy Association, the following changes can result in misaligned spine or joints:
- Protruding abdomen and increased back curve
- Pelvic changes
- Postural adaptations
Benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy include:
- Maintaining a healthier pregnancy
- Controlling symptoms of nausea
- Reducing the time of labor and delivery
- Relieving back, neck or joint pain
- Preventing a potential cesarean delivery
If you or someone you know is pregnant, we can help improve the health of that pregnancy.
