Your body is going through great changes during pregnancy, a lot of which will cause a bit of discomfort. You will likely experience things like headaches, joint or muscle pain, and trouble sleeping during their pregnancy. We understand the hesitation to rely on the limited medication you are allowed while pregnant, so the Next Level Chiropractic team has a few natural, medication-free ways to alleviate your discomfort.
Meditation and Stress-Management
Taking conscious measures to relax during pregnancy can drastically reduce your aches and pains. We offer a light massage specifically designed for women during pregnancy which can relax both body and mind. We cater to your muscles, relieving stress and helping to eliminate toxins within the body.
Meditation is an excellent practice as it reduces stress and puts you in a positive mind-space. Meditation can be done during light exercise or even immediately before sleep. Taking the time to center your mind will directly affect how your body reacts to stressors.
Establish Consistent Habits
Many times during pregnancy your quality of sleep seriously diminishes. Establishing a consistent routine and bedtime for yourself can help to improve your quality of sleep as well as reduce the likelihood of other discomforts like headaches or stress-related pains. Consider making a schedule for your day that includes light activity and a regular night routine. Creating consistency in your day will help your body cope with all the changes it’s going through.
Consider Natural Remedies
The benefits of herbal teas and nutritional medicine have been found to be vast. If you’re finding that it’s difficult to find relief from your discomfort, consider some natural remedies like using turmeric root for inflammation or chamomile for relaxation.
When your body is feeling the weight of pregnancy, we understand the apprehension one can feel about chiropractic or any physical adjustments to the body. The truth is, with light adjustments and attention to the joints and ligaments – your body is more adept and ready for hormonal and physical changes that occur during pregnancy. We are happy to ease any apprehension to chiropractic care by offering gentle and effective care for our prenatal clients.
