Prenatal Chiropractic Care
More and more women are discovering the many benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy. Through the precise science of adjusting misalignment in the spine, prenatal chiropractic care can help alleviate back pain, while promoting an overall healthier pregnancy. Crossroads Chiropractic and Wellness Center offers safe and effective prenatal adjustments.
The Benefits of Prenatal Chiropractic Care
During pregnancy, the body goes through several changes that can alter the quality of life. A growing abdomen, along with pregnancy-induced hormones, can lead to increased curvature in the spine. This also leads to postural modifications and changes in the pelvis. Many of the adverse pregnancy-related symptoms are caused by spinal misalignment and ligament issues.
Misalignment in the pelvis can decrease the amount of space available for a developing baby, while also hindering the baby from reaching an ideal position for delivery. This can directly interfere with the natural birthing process. A specific chiropractic adjustment allows chiropractors to create balance in the pelvis and reduces needless stress on the uterus. This allows for the best possible fetal positioning. While most other prenatal practitioners aren’t concerned with the birth position until late in the pregnancy, chiropractors are able to address these issues earlier.
Other benefits of receiving prenatal chiropractic care include:
- Alleviating or helping to control the symptoms of morning sickness and nausea
- Reducing overall labor and delivery time
- Diminishing back and neck discomfort
