Why Might You Need Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy?
We can help relieve spinal pressure that your baby may put on your spine and move your body into the ideal state of alignment as birth approaches.
Both mom and baby can benefit from chiropractic care during pregnancy.
Pregnancy Chiropractic Care is gentle, completely non-invasive, and safe during all trimesters. Chiropractic care is not only safe, but can be extremely beneficial. Chiropractic is 100% non-invasive, requires no medications, and will not disturb the baby in any way. Chiropractic care is typically safe in all trimesters of pregnancy and, in fact, many women have chiropractic care right up until their delivery day.
During pregnancy as a general rule, “the earlier, the better” is when Chiropractic care should be started. Women who start with chiropractic care during their first trimester and continue with it throughout their pregnancy are in the best position to have a more comfortable pregnancy and delivery.
Goals of Pregnancy Chiropractic Care
Our goal is to relieve spinal pressure that your baby may put on your spine and to prepare the lower body for birth. Here’s how it works: When pregnant, your body generates hormones called relaxin. The job of the relaxin is to force the pelvis area ligaments to relax and to widen the cervix so you’re prepared for a safe and smooth delivery. However, the hormones can have another effect: They can make you feel more clumsy, almost as if you may trip over your own limbs. When this is combined with a rapidly growing belly, it can put considerable pressure on your spine. Chiropractic care is the ideal way to relieve this spinal pressure, and it will help move the lower body into the ideal state of alignment as birth approaches.
We will do this by using adjustments similar to those used at other times. However, a pregnant woman may be positioned differently during adjustments to accommodate her growing belly. For example, during pregnancy you can lay comfortably on your side for alignments and still receive relieving results.
Since the birthing process is tough on both mom and baby we will take care of you during postpartum stages as well with the option to also have your baby taken care of too.
