During pregnancy, your body is getting ready to grow and give birth to a baby. While these changes are necessary and important for the baby’s development, they can cause painful back issues. Visiting a chiropractor during pregnancy can help your body prepare for giving birth, while alleviating some of the back pain that goes along with carrying a child.
The adjustments performed by a chiropractor will not only help make you more comfortable, but will also put the baby in the best position to be delivered safely. Chiropractic care during pregnancy helps encourage pelvic alignment, giving the baby the most room possible to grow and develop. Keeping the pelvis balanced will also create optimum comfort for you, and help ease any soreness you are experiencing. Regular chiropractic adjustments during pregnancy will encourage a safer (and faster!) labor and delivery.
The pressure on your body from carrying a baby over 9 months can take a toll. Changes in hormone levels and the exaggerated spinal curve put pressure on the joints and pelvis. It’s important to keep these areas of the body relaxed and take as much pressure off of your joints as possible. Chiropractic care can keep things loose and moving freely, and can also help with mood and anxiety. As a bonus, your chiropractor can help you improve sleep and decrease morning sickness!
