Many pregnant women experience significant body changes, causing aches and pains in the lower back and hips. These aches and pains are part of the prenatal experience, and seeing a prenatal chiropractor may provide the relief needed to relax before your new addition to the family arrives. In addition, chiropractic adjustments and joint manipulations can help prepare the body for delivery and improve recovery.
Navarre Chiropractic Center in Navarre, FL, has a prenatal and postpartum chiropractor prepared to help you before, during, and after your pregnancy.
Is Chiropractic Care Safe for Pregnant Women?
Seeing a chiropractor while pregnant is a safe treatment option for expecting mothers looking for alternatives to help with the ache and pains of being pregnant. Chiropractic care is a non-invasive, drug-free treatment option to help with pain management, spinal nerve stress, and promote healing throughout the body.
Visiting our prenatal chiropractor is a safe treatment option, and some patients may not benefit from chiropractic adjustments. For example, suppose you are experiencing vaginal bleeding, a placenta abruption, a placenta previa, an ectopic pregnancy, or moderate to severe toxemia. In that case, seeing a chiropractor while pregnant is not recommended.
How Chiropractic Adjustments Help Pregnancy
Women experience hormonal and physical changes during pregnancy that can impact their posture and comfort. As the baby grows, it becomes heavier and can shift your center of gravity, which affects your posture. Then, as your posture changes, it can put pressure on joints, nerves, and soft tissue, which can cause pain and discomfort. A chiropractic adjustment helps realign the spinal column and alleviates stress on the body caused by all the changes.
Benefits of Seeing Our Prenatal Chiropractor
Seeing a prenatal chiropractor can help with nausea, reduce your labor and delivery time, alleviate back pain, prevent a c-section, and reduce the need for pain medications. Additionally, seeing a chiropractor while pregnant can help you recover faster, especially when you visit a postpartum chiropractor after your baby arrives.
