Pregnancy is a beautiful experience, but it can also come with new and unexpected pains. As a woman’s body shifts and grows to accommodate the rapidly developing fetus, it can cause imbalances. Chiropractic care during pregnancy corrects musculoskeletal problems and helps the nervous system work at its best. An adjustment won’t just make you feel better; it will also help your body function at its best.
Treat Intractable Pain
It’s very common for pregnant women to experience lower back pain. The weight of the uterus pulls the lower back into an exaggerated curve, causing pain in the back and hips. A prenatal chiropractic adjustment helps gently restore that curve, easing the pull on your spine and supporting muscles. Chiropractic care has even been shown to reduce pelvic pain. Conventional treatments for this kind of pain are limited, and they don’t have very high rates of success. But chiropractic adjustments can give you relief.
Changing hormone levels can trigger migraines. Even women who have never had them before sometimes suffer during pregnancy. Nearly all medication that’s used to treat migraines is not safe during pregnancy. Fortunately, prenatal chiropractic adjustments are an effective, safe treatment for migraine pain.
Pregnancy can be an anxious time, and chiropractic adjustments can reduce stress, restoring balance physically and emotionally. At a time when many changes feel out of your control, it’s a wonderful gift to give yourself.
Women who have regular chiropractic care during pregnancy often have shorter labor times. Your body functions at its best when it is in alignment. Not only are the bones and joints working together smoothly, but a healthy, adjusted spine enables your nervous system to communicate efficiently with every part of your body.
