Throughout your pregnancy, a number of health matters will require your attention. Not only do you need to get your body ready for delivery, but you have to be sure that you are doing everything you can to help your growing bundle of joy develop properly. Focusing on a healthy diet, exercise, and OB appointments are necessary, and maintaining your regular chiropractic adjustments is important, too!
With a properly aligned spine, you can enjoy a smoother delivery. If your spine is out of alignment, the rest of your body will follow suit. Your entire nervous system relies upon your spinal cord sending communications between your brain and your body. So, if a misalignment is pinching a nerve or cutting off the nerve supply to certain areas of your body, issues will surely arise. Many of our patients, unbeknownst to them, experience secondary conditions that could be relieved with a simple chiropractic adjustment!
Easing Discomfort During Pregnancy
Our team of chiropractic professionals know how to base the treatment provided on the individual we are treating. Because of our ability to treat each patient with a unique care plan, we can safely, gently, and effectively provide chiropractic care to expecting mothers.
As your pregnancy progresses, your body weight will increase. Not only will you be supporting your own increased weight, but also that of your growing baby. This process is truly amazing, but it also increases stress on your spine which leads to poor posture, back pain, and balance issues. Furthermore, your protruding abdomen will cause the curve in your back to increase, pelvic changes, and altered posture. To ensure that your body is properly aligned and to accommodate for these changes, our chiropractic services will keep you healthy and comfortable.
There are many reasons that people choose chiropractic treatment, and one of the main reasons is because it is a drug-free, surgery-free, non-invasive, natural form of treatment that will help get your body functioning optimally. We've treated moms-to-be suffering from a number of symptoms ranging from pain to swelling to difficulty sleeping. In addition, chiropractic can:
- Get baby in a better position for delivery
- Boost both baby and mom's health (increased immunity)
- Relieve uncomfortable pregnancy symptoms, like morning sickness
No matter what stage of life you're in, regular chiropractic adjustments are important. If you are an expecting mother or have recently given birth, we can provide you with the care you need to improve your health and make your pregnancy as easy as possible.
