Congratulations on this very exciting time in your life! Whether this is you first pregnancy or your fourth, I am sure you have many questions and concerns about chiropractic care during pregnancy. I routinely work with pregnant women and use techniques to avoid unneeded pressure on the abdomen. I am well-versed in the needs of pregnant women and will provide you with exercises and stretches that are safe to use during pregnancy and that will compliment any adjustments I make to your spine.
Chiropractic is safe and beneficial for both mother and baby.
During pregnancy, there are several physiological and hormonal changes that occur in preparation for creating the environment for the developing baby.
The following changes could result in a misaligned spine or joint:
- Protruding abdomen and increased back curve
- Pelvic changes
- Postural adaptations
Chiropractic care in pregnancy is an essential ingredient to your prenatal care choices. A large percent of all pregnant women experience back discomfort and pain during pregnancy.
Chiropractic care throughout pregnancy can relieve and even prevent the common discomforts experienced in pregnancy. Specific adjustments eliminate these stresses in your spine, restore balance to your pelvis creating an environment for an easier, safer delivery and result in greater comfort and lifestyle improvements.
