Pregnancy is supposed to be a joyous time in your life; however, for some pregnancy can be an extremely difficult chapter in some women’s lives. Routine chiropractic care can help! It can actually be a crucial part of the birth preparation for any expectant mother and her baby.
Throughout your pregnancy, you will experience many physiological and hormonal changes. Some of these changes can have a drastic impact on your posture and overall comfort. As your baby continues to grow and become heavier, your center of gravity will shift and your posture will adjust to fit the needs of your body. These changes in your body can create subluxations of the spine and place stress on your joints.
Routine chiropractic care can help you restore your body’s balance and align your spine and pelvis. It is vital your pelvis is in alignment, so your developing baby has the necessary room to grow and move into the best position to be born when the time is right. If your pelvis isn’t balanced then your baby has a greater chance of being in a breech or posterior position when it is time for delivery.
Not only can routine chiropractic care help keep your pelvis and spine in alignment, but it can also make you feel better! Regular chiropractic care while pregnant can provide many benefits like:
- Relieve pain in hips, back, neck and joints
- Help control symptoms of nausea
- More comfortable pregnancy
- Reduce the likelihood of a cesarean section
- Shorter labor and delivery time
- Maintain a healthier pregnancy for YOU AND BABY!
The possibility of a woman’s neuro-musculoskeletal structure being damaged throughout their pregnancy and the postpartum period is high. Routine chiropractic care is not only a safe and effective way to help keep the spine and pelvis aligned throughout the entire pregnancy. It will also reduce nervous system stress to help them maintain normal body function. By maintaining normal body function and keeping the spine and pelvis in alignment, expectant moms will experience less pain and other pregnancy-related symptoms throughout their entire pregnancy. In fact, most women have discovered that chiropractic care helped them avoid the use of any pain medication throughout their entire pregnancy!
