How Our Prenatal Chiropractic Care Can Help You and Your Baby
Up to 50% of pregnant women will experience back pain before they deliver. For many, the top aches and pains associated with pregnancy are hip pain and back pain. A chiropractor such as Body in Balance Wellness Center can help you ease the pain along with passing on several other benefits.
Safety of Prenatal Chiropractic Care
Complications for chiropractic care are rare, and it is still considered safe for those who are pregnant. Chiropractic care doesn’t involve drugs or surgical options and adjusts misaligned joints into a state of balance, promoting less stress on the body and health throughout. However, those with vaginal bleeding, ectopic pregnancy, moderate to severe toxemia, or placenta previa are asked not to receive chiropractic care.
Specialized Treatment for Pregnant Women
Table adjustments can be made to ensure that pregnant ladies are still very comfortable with their spinal adjustments. Our chiropractors are trained to use techniques, especially for their growing bellies, and adequately treat them without adding pressure to their abdomen.
Benefits of Prenatal Chiropractic Care
As the body becomes heavier with the baby, your center of gravity and posture shifts along with it. They have an impact on your spine and joints. While chiropractic care helps realign this misalignment, it also helps with pain and discomfort. A study showed that chiropractic care helps over 75% of women with their pain.
It goes so much farther than just pain relief for the mama, in that when the body is out of alignment, there is less space for the baby. When the baby’s movements are restricted, there is an intrauterine constraint, which can lead to birth defects. A misaligned pelvis can make it much harder for your baby to be in the best birth position. Chiropractic care can get the pelvis into a better alignment and help with the space that your baby has to grow, helping give both the mama and the baby the best birth possible.
Regular care from our chiropractors can help control symptoms of nausea and help the mother be more comfortable, and relieve pain in the neck and other joints and the back and hips. Some studies show that it will also help with quicker labor for the mother. Talk with your healthcare provider about the benefits and risks of chiropractic care. If your pregnancy isn’t high risk, this could be a great way to help you ease your discomfort, help your baby have more intrauterine space, and provide you the best possible birth scenario.
