Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy
Chiropractic care is crucial for maintaining the proper function of the neuromusculoskeletal system and promoting a healthy body from the inside out. Chiropractic can help you, and your baby, achieve a healthier labor and delivery safely and naturally.
Due to the physiological and endocrinological changes pregnancy causes throughout the body (such as increased spine curvature, changes in the pelvis, etc.). It is essential to take good care of the expecting mother’s spine by restoring proper alignment and balance. Over half of women complain of lower back pain during pregnancy due to postural changes affecting the lower back.
Clinical studies have shown that chiropractic care during pregnancy, especially during the third trimester, can give the mother more comfort and potentially reduce the amount of necessary painkillers during delivery. Chiropractic care can benefit the expectant mother and baby from the beginning of a pregnancy to well after the baby is born. This method can have many benefits, such as maintaining a healthier pregnancy, preventing symptoms of nausea, reducing labor/delivery time, relieving back/joint pain, or preventing a possible c-section.
