Chiropractic Care and Your Pregnancy

Throughout a woman's pregnancy, she has a number of health matters to pay close attention to. Not only do expecting mothers need to ready their bodies for delivery, they also have to be sure they are helping their growing babies develop properly. Focusing on diet, exercise, and doctor's appointments is imperative, and remembering the chiropractor's office is important, too!

Did you know that a properly aligned spine will lead to a smoother delivery? When your spine is out of alignment, the rest of the body is too. Your entire nervous system relies upon the spinal cord to send nerve messages between the brain and the body. That means if a misalignment is pinching a nerve or cutting off the nerve supply to certain areas of the body, issues will occur. Many of our patients are, unbeknownst to them, experiencing secondary conditions that a simple adjustment can fix!

Can Chiropractic Ease Discomfort During Pregnancy?

Our highly trained chiropractors are knowledgeable about adjusting care based on each individual patient's needs. Because of our ability to provide unique care for each patients, we are able to effectively and safely provide chiropractic care for expecting mothers.

As a pregnancy progresses and the baby grows, so will the mother's weight. Not only is mom supporting her own increased weight, but also a six or seven-pound fetus, which means added stress on her spine. That added stress leads to back pain, poor posture, and issues with balance. Additionally, the protruding abdomen leads to altered posture, pelvic changes, and an increased back curve. Our chiropractic services will accommodate these many changes and maintain spinal alignment, keep expecting moms healthy and comfortable
