Chiropractic care can halt this pain cycle experienced during pregnancy and also be quite helpful in reducing
soreness in the hip and pelvic region, relieving pressure on the sciatic nerve and restoring normal function and
mobility to the entire spine. In addition to this, it can also stabilize nervous system function, which is vital in the
development of the baby. This is an important component of overall good health, well being and quality of life.
The biggest benefit of utilizing Chiropractic during your pregnancy is the enhanced mobility you will experience.
The benefits of Chiropractic care have also been documented in regards to the delivery process itself. Many
Chiropractic moms report that their deliveries were faster and more comfortable than their previous deliveries
prior to Chiropractic care. Chiropractic can be a useful pain management protocol in each phase of pregnancy,
so pamper yourself and your baby with regular prenatal spinal checkups.
Your Chiropractor is a specialist in the location, reduction and
stabilization of the vertebral subluxation complex, which can be
related to many of the uncomfortable symptoms associated
with pregnancy and labor. As the baby develops and grows
larger in the womb, the center of gravity for the expectant
mother changes and becomes less stable placing
significantly larger stress to the spine and pelvic region.
Hormonal changes, laxity of connective ligaments, and shifting
of weight-bearing structures causes many pregnant women to
experience low back pain amongst other symptoms during
this period of rapid development. The pain then leads to more
and more reduction in mobility and the cycle feeds itself.
