Aloha! I’m Dr. Sean Delaney with Kalani Total Health Center. Today I’m going to talk to you about chiropractic and how it helps or why you may want to see a chiropractor during your pregnancy.
As you already know, during pregnancy, your body goes through a lot of changes, not only in you go through them as well, you’re going through physical changes, emotional changes, as well as chemical changes. A few reasons to see a chiropractor doing your pregnancy, that one of the main ones is to reduce pain naturally. Did you know 60% of women during that pregnancy are going to experience some type of pain. Most of the pain they experience is in the back or in the pelvis. And that typically begins around the fifth, sixth or seventh month of their pregnancy.
Other common things that typically happen like morning sickness, acid reflux, insomnia, swelling of the hands and feet. Chiropractic care works with your nervous system. By relieving that nerve pressure, it allows your body to communicate better. It allows you to improve your sweet sleep quality, minimize the acid reflux as well as enhance just the communication through your body. So your body is able to respond to things a lot better and keep your stress levels down. Another thing that happens during pregnancy you may not be aware of is that women who don’t sleep well, or women who sleep less than six hours per night, they’re averaging about 29 hours in their late labor process versus women who are sleeping seven hours more. They’re averaging around 18 hours during the labor process. Women who are under chiropractic care, since they’re going to be sleeping better, are averaging about 25% Less time during labor and it’s a less painful experience.
Working with Kalani Total Health Center during your pregnancy will allow you to catch any of the symptoms or any other problems that arise early on, and get some treatment.
