Pregnancy Pain

Before you become pregnant, your Doctor of Chiropractic can detect any imbalances in the lower core of the body and elsewhere that could contribute to pregnancy discomfort or possible neuromusculoskeletal problems after childbirth.

Many pregnant women have found that chiropractic adjustments provide relief from the increased low-back pain brought on by pregnancy. Chiropractic manipulation is safe for the pregnant woman and her baby and can be especially important to those who are trying to avoid medications in treating their back pain. Doctors of Chiropractic can also offer nutrition, ergonomic, and exercise advice to help a woman enjoy a healthy pregnancy.

Chiropractic care can also help after childbirth. In the eight weeks following labor and delivery, the ligaments that loosened during pregnancy begin to tighten up again. Ideally, joint problems brought on during pregnancy from improper lifting or reaching should be treated before the ligaments return to their pre-pregnancy state to prevent muscle tension, headaches, rib discomfort, and shoulder problems.

Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy: Reducing Discomfort and Supporting Maternal Health

More and more people are approaching chiropractors for help with pregnancy pain and other discomforts. During pregnancy, a woman’s body goes through various changes, which could lead to discomfort and pain. With years of experience, knowledge, and expertise, our chiropractors help provide a safe and non-invasive therapy for pregnancy pain and make sure you have a comfortable time.

Here’s how chiropractic care benefits expectant mothers:

Relief from Pregnancy-Related Pain

Pregnancy can bring a host of issues like lower back pain, Sciatica, and pelvic discomfort, to name a few, due to weight gain and changing body dynamics. Our chiropractic adjustments can help relieve that pain and ensure proper spinal adjustments, reducing the pressure on your nerves. This ensures you get immediate pain relief and enhances your overall body functions.

Improved Pelvic Balance

Our chiropractors also focus on maintaining pelvic balance, as it is vital during your pregnancy journey. Having pelvic balance allows more room for the baby to move around and can even lead to a smoother and more comfortable delivery. An improved pelvic balance can also help reduce the chances of a breech or posterior baby, which means fewer chances for medical interventions during childbirth.

Reducing Pregnancy Symptoms

Our chiropractic care can also help reduce other symptoms of pregnancy apart from pregnancy pain, like nausea, and can lead you to better overall health. Through our spinal adjustments, we can optimize your nerve functions and help manage the physiological and hormonal changes you go through during pregnancy.
