Why You Should Seek Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy
Chiropractic care during pregnancy can be a great help to the expectant mother. Here are some of the pregnancy issues that chiropractic care can take care of.
Reduce lower back and hip pain naturally
Most pregnant women experience lower back pain. As belly size increases, postural changes occur and put pressure on the spine and pelvic joints. These joints can become misaligned, irritated and painful. Chiropractors perform safe, gentle adjustments to realign the pelvis and bring about lower back pain relief.
Promote proper pelvic alignment to improve fetal positioning.
The baby will change position in the uterus throughout pregnancy. A misaligned pelvis makes it difficult for the baby to naturally move. Chiropractic treatment works to keep a pregnant woman’s pelvis aligned and the sacroiliac joints moving freely so the baby can achieve optimal position during pregnancy and, especially at the time of delivery. Studies show pregnant women having chiropractic care during their pregnancy have faster and easier deliveries.
Eliminate lower back pain that persists after delivery of the child.
Often women experience lower back pain for a long time after they have delivered their baby. This is due to the pelvis being misaligned and irritated sacroiliac joints creating ongoing, chronic pain. This lower back can be relieved with chiropractic adjustments.
