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?
The body can bend and twist because of the 24 independent vertebrae that the spine consists of. The spine also helps to protect the central nervous system, which coordinates most of the body.
Joint dysfunctions interfere with the body’s communication with itself. Joint dysfunctions happen when at least two vertebrae are restricted. During pregnancy, joint dysfunctions can occur as the body is changing to support both mom and baby.
The body has to adapt to extra stress on the spine during pregnancy as the pelvis rotates, posture becomes poor, and weight is gained in the abdomen. This can impede nerve communication and harm joint function.
Chiropractic adjustments are a non-invasive way to improve the function of joints and improve the communication of nerves. Chiropractors use a gentle movement on the spine and other areas to locate dysfunctions and correct them.
Benefits of Chiropractic During Pregnancy
Chiropractic care is a natural and safe way to relieve pain in pregnancy without the use of drugs and medications.
