Are You Pregnant? Are You Experiencing Discomfort and Pain During Your Pregnancy?
Pregnancy chiropractic care center
Aches and pains in the lower back and hips area are what most pregnant women experience during their pregnancy. Approximately 50% of pregnant women will experience back pain at one point or another during the pregnancy before they deliver the baby. Thankfully, alleviation by a chiropractic care center might just be the way to go.
Chiropractic care is a health maintenance of the spinal column and the adjustment of misaligned joints. Chiropractic care doesn’t involve drugs or surgery. It is more so a physical therapy type of treatment to help diminish spinal nerve stress and boost and encourage health throughout the body.
More than 1 million chiropractic adjustments are done every single day, all over the world. Chiropractic care during the pregnancy is believed to be safe. There may be some situations where having a chiropractic adjustment may not be a good idea so always get your doctor’s sign off in agreeing to you seeing a chiropractor during your pregnancy.
While we are a licensed chiropractor and have received training related to pregnancy, we unfortunately do not specialize in prenatal care. We have performed adjustments on many pregnant women in our office and we have a special adjustable table that will accommodate the growing belly. The techniques that are used in our office with pregnancy related adjustments do not put pressure on the abdomen making it safe for mom and baby.
We can also show you effective stretching techniques to relieve tension and easing discomfort.
During pregnancy, can chiropractic care help?
There are many hormonal and physical changes you’ll experience during your pregnancy. Some of these will have an impact on your posture and comfort. As your baby becomes heavier, your center of gravity shifts and your posture adjusts accordingly.
These physical changes during your pregnancy can lead to a misaligned spine or joints.
Other uncomfortable changes during pregnancy might include:
- a protruding abdomen resulting in an increased curve of your back
- changes to your pelvis as your body begins to prepare for labor
- adaptations to your posture
Regular visits to a chiropractor during your pregnancy can address these issues. One collaborative chiropractic and medical study revealed that 75 percent of pregnant chiropractic care patients reported pain relief. Plus, adjustments designed to re-establish balance and alignment to your pelvis and spine will do more than just make you feel better. Chiropractic care can be beneficial for your baby, too.
