Chiropractic Care for Pregnancy

Pregnancy changes a woman’s body almost immediately. While pregnancy is beautiful, these changes can cause discomfort or pain to the expectant mom. Chiropractic care can help you be pain-free during your pregnancy.

With the rapid and extreme rise in hormone levels and the growth of the placenta during pregnancy, the liver is working overtime, which can cause a lot of stress on the organ. Chiropractic care can eliminate stress on the nervous system and optimize liver function, offsetting its increased workload.

Headaches are also a common issue during the first trimester and can even last through the whole pregnancy. There are several possible reasons for headaches including misalignment of the neck and upper back, stress, dehydration, and sugar and caffeine withdrawal. Chiropractic adjustments can reduce or even eliminate these headaches.
