Improving Your Pregnancy with Chiropractic Care
Today’s woman constantly juggles an incredible number of responsibilities: jobs, children, friendships, marriages, errands, appointments – the list is endless! You’ve got to be healthy just to keep up.
About 50% of women experience low back pain during pregnancy. Back pain in pregnancy may be severe enough to cause significant pain and disability and pre-dispose patients to back pain in a following pregnancy. Back pain in pregnancy may also be characterized by pain radiating into the thigh and buttocks. No significant increased risk of back pain with pregnancy has been found with respect to maternal weight gain, exercise, work satisfaction, or pregnancy outcome factors such as birth weight or birth length.
A Perfect Pregnancy with Chiropractic
In addition to the noticeable changes pregnancy causes in a woman’s body, pregnancy can cause subtle changes in the musculoskeletal system – changes your chiropractor is able to detect and correct. Because the baby lies forward in the woman’s body during pregnancy, her center of gravity shifts and the spine alters itself to accommodate this change. As a result, many expectant mothers may experience low back and pelvic pain. These stresses and strains can be relieved with regular chiropractic care.
Regular Chiropractic Care – A Pain Free Pregnancy
It’s especially important during pregnancy that nerve impulses flow from the brain to all parts of the body. A slightly out of place vertebra can create nerve irritation that snarls the body’s communication system. Using gentle spinal adjustments, our doctors can relieve this nerve irritation, allowing the body’s energy to flow freely again and eliminate periodic pain through nature’s own healing power! We will use special, modified techniques during your pregnancy to make your spinal adjustments easy and comfortable.
