I get asked all the time, “Is Chiropractic care good for_______?” The answer is almost always the same: “Of course!”
Now, Chiropractic is not a treatment for anything, however, it maximizes your nervous system function in order for your body to be at its best. In this example, we are going to focus on pregnancy.
When a mother becomes pregnant, and the beautiful baby starts to grow inside, the amount of weight and the location of the weight changes the mother’s center of gravity.
Because the weight it centralized in the tummy, and grows outward, this puts new stress on the spine, especially in the lower part, near your low back and hips.
Chiropractic care throughout the duration of pregnancy has many benefits:
1: A properly aligned spine can help stabilize the mother’s posture in order for a more comfortable pregnancy.
2: Chiropractic care, especially in the first trimester, can help reduce morning sickness.
3: Specifically, a properly aligned pelvis allows for the most amount of space in the birth canal for the baby. This ensures that the baby will be in the proper position when labor and birth begin, but can also make the labor and delivery process faster, and more comfortable.
4: Chiropractic care throughout a pregnancy can help the proper growth and development of the baby on the inside. If the mother’s nervous system is functioning well, the baby has a better chance to grow and change better in a stress free environment.
5: Chiropractic care throughout pregnancy can help mitigate some of the other discomforts that may arise with pregnancy including “carpal tunnel,” “sciatica,” “headaches,” and sleeping problems.
The techniques that are used with a pregnant mother are different than that of a regular patient, and focus on the comfort of mother and development of the baby. I thoroughly enjoy seeing happy moms and babies each and every day who are feeling great after their visit in our office.
