Benefits of Prenatal Chiropractic Care
Due to the pressures caused by pregnancy, your posture will assume a different configuration. This configuration can create numbness in the extremities, headaches, or radiating pain in the neck or the back.
Discomfort during pregnancy can cause stress in addition to the other challenges you'll be facing. Strained muscles make everyday tasks difficult, and you may also experience nerve impingement. Our chiropractor can help ease these symptoms by manipulating joints to accommodate your growing baby.
What Conditions Can Our Chiropractor Treat during Pregnancy?
It's not uncommon for a pregnant patient to require assistance with sciatic nerve discomfort and issues due to compression of the round ligaments. Prenatal chiropractic care can alleviate or lessen the need for painkillers.
As the pregnancy progresses, some experience SPD, or symphysis public dysfunction, which results from hormones that trigger the relaxation of the symphysis joint to prepare for childbirth. However, this can also cause mobility difficulties and make the pelvis unstable.
What Role Does Prenatal Chiropractic Care Play in Delivery?
On average, an expectant mother who is pregnant for the first time and receives regular chiropractor sessions will spend 25% less time in labor. This reduction is because your chiropractic adjustments can ensure a balanced pelvis ahead of your delivery. The stage for allowing the baby the room needed to change position and prepare for exiting the birth canal.
Proper alignment of your body will also help you experience less pain in your legs, back, and pelvis. Your healing afterward is also a necessary time to see a chiropractor to encourage the process of adjusting postpartum.
