How does chiropractic care help pregnancy?
The doctors of chiropractic understand that the health of a pregnant woman is vitally important and the services they offer provide profound health benefits to both mom and child. Proper nervous system and spinal function is crucial to the development of the baby and essential to the well-being and comfort of the mother to be. The effects of chiropractic care during pregnancy are far-reaching and extend way beyond treating the discomfort often found with the physical changes of pregnancy. By correctly aligning the pelvis and spine, chiropractic care helps to ensure that the developing baby has plenty of room to grow within the womb. By maintaining this proper alignment and motion throughout pregnancy, chiropractors can also improve the ability of the expecting mother to have a safe and natural birth process.
Why should I have chiropractic care while i’m pregnant?
A woman’s body goes through many changes during pregnancy that affect the alignment and position of the spine and pelvic bones. Changes from the increased back curve, protruding abdomen, pelvic changes, and postural adaptations often result in pain and discomfort for the mother during this otherwise happy time of life. In order to maintain the best possible health and wellbeing throughout pregnancy, chiropractic care protects the alignment of an expectant mother’s spine and pelvis.
Is chiropractic care safe during pregnancy?
Yes, chiropractic care is safe for pregnant women. The chiropractor at Family Healthcare Chiropractic has experience treating pregnant women and the many changes their bodies go through during the 40 weeks of gestation. Additionally, chiropractic care is natural and doesn’t involve the use of any drugs or medications that may not be safe for the development of your baby. Treatment during pregnancy may be slightly different as special care is taken to avoid putting any excess pressure on the abdomen.
