Pregnancy can not only bring on back pain, but it can cause discomfort in your muscles and joints. This is largely due to the weight of a growing baby as it puts new stress on shifting internal organs. Chiropractic adjustments can help, and they are gentle and effective during all stages of pregnancy.
Proper Pelvic Position
While chiropractic adjustments are typically focused on spinal alignments, we also focus on pelvic position with pregnant mothers. A misaligned pelvis can limit the amount of space the baby has to grow and move. Proper pelvic position additionally helps ensure you maintain proper posture throughout your pregnancy, preventing slouching that leads to unnecessary bodily aches and pains.
Proper positioning of the pelvis can also help when it comes to the birthing process, contributing to a smooth, healthy and speedy delivery. A misaligned pelvis can lead to difficult delivery issues, as the baby is not always able to maneuver into the optimal delivery position. This is especially important for mothers hoping to have a natural and non-invasive birth.
Many patients have told us that regular prenatal chiropractic care has seemed to increase delivery times while decreasing the need for artificial intervention.
