Morning sickness. Vomiting. Nausea. Back pain. Pelvic pain. Shortness of breath. Hormones gone wild. High blood pressure. Swollen ankles, these examples are common symptoms during pregnancy. The intensity or even the presence of these symptoms will greatly diminish under Chiropractic care. We love helping pregnant mothers prepare for birth. We give gentle and custom chiropractic care designed to meet the needs of their changing body. Here is why…

Favorable Function, Favorable Birth

When you are able to keep your spine aligned and nervous system balanced during pregnancy, you are setting your body up to work as effective as possible. During pregnancy two things tend to affect your spine the most, the first being the ligament laxity due to hormonal changes. As ligaments become more lax you are more prone to pain in your back and you may not hold your adjustment as long as before. The second is the weight gain, especially to the front of the body. This relatively rapid weight gain will change the stresses on the spine and create sore spots. Along with the spinal pain, many people will experience muscle pain as your bodies are trying to adjust to this new center of gravity. Luckily both of these can be treated with chiropractic care.

Proper Alignment

Even if you’re not in pain, you can benefit from visiting a chiropractor. Chiropractic care during pregnancy maintains, and can even improve, balance and alignment in your spine and pelvis. This can help your baby assume her optimal birthing position and reduce the risk of having a breech baby. As a chiropractic patient, you know that our focus is typically spinal alignment.

Pain Relief

More and more women are educating themselves and making their own decisions when it comes to labor and delivery. Seeking a chiropractor for pregnancy pain relief is just one of the many examples of women making natural, educated choices about their health and the health of their baby during pregnancy; it is entirely common for mother to experience not just back pain, but joint and muscle discomfort. This is largely due to the weight of the growing baby as it puts new stress on shifting internal organs. The good news is Chiropractic adjustment can help.

Delivery Benefits

When a mother’s hips are out of alignment during labor, the baby can have a difficult time descending down the birth canal. Seeing a chiropractor for changes to the body during pregnancy greatly increases women’s chances of delivering her baby with fewer complications and in a shorter period of time. A misaligned pelvis can lead to difficult delivery issues as the baby isn’t always able to get into the most ideal delivery position.
