While pregnancy can be one of the happiest times of your life, it can also bring quite a bit of discomfort into your life too. Routine chiropractic care can be very effective in providing relief to those women who are pregnant and dealing with uncomfortable symptoms. We recognize the number one goal any pregnant mother has is a healthy pregnancy and chiropractic can play a big role in attaining that.
There are a number of physical changes an expectant mother’s body goes through to make room for the baby. One of the biggest changes a mother undergoes is her center of gravity shifts to the front of her pelvis, as the baby grows. This increases the amount of stress and discomfort an expectant mother experiences in her lower back and pelvic joints. Chiropractic care prevents unnecessary stress on the growing fetus as it helps put the pelvis into its correct position and gives the baby optimal room to grow and develop in the womb. Many women seek chiropractic care due to some of the following changes that occur throughout pregnancy:
- Growing & Protruding Abdomen
- Increase Lower Back Curvature
- Pelvic Join Changes
- Natural Increase in Hormones (Can Cause Joint Laxity)
- Postural Changes (Occur Due to Mother’s Growing Abdomen)
Safe And Effective
Routine chiropractic care throughout pregnancy is safe and very effective for both mom and baby. Prenatal chiropractic care is not just a solution to pain but can also support the woman throughout her pregnancy and the labor. The other benefits of receiving chiropractic care during pregnancy can include:
– Relief from back, neck or joint pain
– Controlling Symptoms of Nausea
– Reducing Labor & Delivery Time
– Preventing Cesarean Delivery
– All Natural Pain Relief
A baby’s position is directly linked to the mother’s pelvic position throughout the pregnancy. Dr. Rafael and Dr. Chris utilize the Webster Technique to ensure each expectant mom has a good pelvic balance and that their pelvis in its correct alignment. This gives the baby room to develop without any unnecessary pressure applied to its still developing cranium and spine. Routine chiropractic care also gives the baby room to move into the best position to prepare for birth. A well-trained chiropractor can also determine if the fetus is not in the correct position to prepare for birth.
