Pregnancy is one of the most exciting time's in a mother's life. But between caring for yourself, your growing baby, and keeping track of doctor's appointments, chiropractic sometimes is forgotten. But chiropractic care can be a great help to pregnant mothers and the changes they are experiencing, as well as helping to prepare for their upcoming delivery. Here's why we suggest chiropractic care for pregnant women:
1. AN OPTIMALLY FUNCTIONING NERVOUS SYSTEM LEADS TO AN OPTIMAL BIRTH
A properly aligned spine allows the entire nervous system to function as it was meant to. As your body changes during pregnancy, your hips and spine will shift to accommodate the added stress of your growing baby. Regular chiropractic visits during pregnancy will allow your body to work as effectively as possible.
2. PAIN RELIEF DURING PREGNANCY
The aches and pains you are feeling are well worth it for your little bundle of joy. But you shouldn't be suffering unnecessarily! It's extremely common for mothers to experience joint pain, back pain, and muscle discomfort throughout their pregnancy. This is mostly a result of the stress caused by the weight of your growing baby. The good news is that chiropractic adjustments are a safe, gentle, and effective tool for relieving pain throughout your entire pregnancy.
3. PROPER PELVIC ALIGNMENT
Because we cater to each individual patient's need, we know that with pregnant women, we need to focus on ensuring proper pelvic positioning for a number of reasons. A misaligned pelvis can limit the amount of space available for your developing baby. It also helps you to maintain proper posture, which avoids body aches.
4. QUICK DELIVERY
Every mom-to-be hopes for a quick and easy delivery. A misaligned pelvis can make the birthing process much more difficult than it needs to be. Particularly for mothers looking to have a natural and non-invasive birth, chiropractic is a no-brainer!
