Many women have discovered the benefits of chiropractic adjustments during pregnancy and make this a routine part of their prenatal care. Women reported less morning sickness, reduced lower back pain, and a shorter labor and delivery. A pregnant woman needs to have her body as healthy and strong as possible in order to handle the rigors of pregnancy and childbirth… and chiropractic care can help!
How can chiropractic care help?
Chiropractors can help prevent misalignments to the spine and pelvis. During pregnancy, chiropractors make small adjustments that help women manage their pain. By adjusting the spine, chiropractors help women maintain balance in the spine and pelvis so they can carry their babies with better postural support. When the pelvis is aligned, the growing baby has room to grow and babies are less likely to be in a breech position, which can result in a difficult delivery or a Caesarean section.
Chiropractic care during pregnancy helps relieve discomfort in the areas of the body that experience pain: back, hips, joints, and neck. Chiropractic care also helps women with nausea associated with pregnancy. Some studies show that chiropractic care can actually speed up delivery, thus reducing complications.
Millions of expectant mothers look to chiropractic care during pregnancy. It’s a safe, natural and drug-free approach to pain relief and prevention for a healthier, happier pregnancy!
