Prenatal Chiropractic Treatment
Collaborating with a chiropractor early on in your pregnancy will allow you to catch small problems quickly and get treatment to minimize your discomfort as your body goes through the natural process of preparing for birth. Chiropractic care can help you keep your pelvis aligned, maximizing the space available to your developing baby. When an external force obstructs the amount of space your growing baby has for normal movements, it’s known as an intrauterine constraint. This can lead to birth defects.
Additionally, a misaligned pelvis can make delivery harder. Your baby needs to have enough room to move into the best position to be born, rear-facing, head down. In some cases, this could affect your ability to have a natural birth.
Here are a few more benefits of receiving regular chiropractic care during your pregnancy:
- Maintain a healthier, more comfortable pregnancy
- Relieve pain in your back, neck, hips, and joints
- Control symptoms of morning sickness
Not only can routine chiropractic care manage pain in your back, hips, and joints and establish pelvic balance, leading to faster, easier labor and delivery, but it also eases the symptoms of morning sickness, acid reflux, insomnia, and swelling in the feet and hands. Chiropractic adjustments relieve nerve pressure from different regions like the spine, neck, and mid-back to improve sleep, minimize acid reflux, and enhance nerve communication. Chiropractic care is a drug-free, natural solution to your pregnancy pain. Using natural health care allows you to avoid taking medication that could negatively impact your baby.
