Chiropractic and PregnancyPregnancy can be a time of joy and anticipation, yet for some the experience is colored by pain, discomfort and illness. This is often because pregnant women undergo many structural and hormonal changes that affect the spine, nerves, joints, ligaments, connective tissues, center of gravity and stability. The doctor of chiropractic can ensure that the spinal column, pelvis and related structures are balanced, moving easily and free of vertebral subluxations.
When free of vertebral subluxation, the mother-to-be experiences pregnancy at a greater level of comfort, health and vitality and can better handle the stress of childbirth.
Chiropractic's drugless approach is another reason why it is valued during pregnancy. Medications should be minized to reduce strain on the system or effects to the growing fetus. Chiropractic care helps pregnant and birthing women a number of ways. Chiropractors have been performing spinal adjustments on pregnant women for over a hundred years and have noted that chiropractic spinal corrective care can help with many of the problems associated with pregnancy. Proper nerve supply to your developing baby also helps to ensure a healthy, happy birth.
