Pregnancy and Chiropractic Care
Pregnancy is a miraculous moment in a woman’s life but as your pregnancy progresses so does the stress on your body. Discomfort begins to develop and your center of gravity shifts and the displaced weight increases stress on your joints and back. A visit to the chiropractor can set this to rights. One thing pregnant women want to know, is it safe? The answer is a resounding “Yes!”
Is Chiropractic Care Safe during Pregnancy?
Getting a massage or other chiropractic care while you are pregnant is completely safe. It enables you to maintain spinal, disc, nerves, and bone health without the use of drugs or surgery. Plus chiropractors are trained to work with pregnant women with some practicing solely on women who are pregnant or trying to become pregnant.
You will find tables that adjust specially for women and use techniques that do not place unneeded pressure on the abdomen. Chiropractors will also provide exercises that are safe to do while pregnant.
Reasons to See a Chiropractor While Pregnant
Now that you know it is safe, you may be wondering why you want to see a chiropractor in the first place. The answer is found in the way your body feels and changes while your baby is growing. We have already discussed the aches and pains that were not there before, which a chiropractor can easily help fix.
Seeing a chiropractor can enable you to have an easier delivery as well. Misaligned spines are a normal occurrence during pregnancy but can reduce the amount of room available for your baby, which can make it difficult for your baby to get into delivery position. If you are set on having a natural birth, taking the necessary steps to ensure delivery goes well will start with a pelvis and spinal alignment. The latter adjustment also enables your body to work at its best during delivery.
