The More You Know
Pregnancy is one of the most important times for a woman to receive chiropractic care. The body is put through many changes throughout the course of pregnancy that affect the back, pelvis, and posture. These changes can lead to pain and discomfort. However, chiropractic care can help.
How can Chiropractic Help?
During pregnancy, joint dysfunctions can occur as the body is changing to support both mom and baby. The body has to adapt to the extra stress on the spine during pregnancy as the woman’s posture becomes poor, weight is gained in the abdomen, and her body mechanics become altered as the pregnancy progresses.
Benefits of Chiropractic During Pregnancy
Chiropractic care is a safe way to relieve pain in pregnancy without the use of medication. It has also shown to benefit the woman later on when she goes into labor by keeping mobility in the pelvis, which can allow for an easier delivery.
