Yes! Chiropractic is a safe and healthy way to treat pain and discomfort during pregnancy. From conception to delivery, your chiropractor can help make the experience as painless as possible.
During pregnancy, a woman’s pelvis loosens and shifts. If the pelvis becomes misaligned while loosened, it can reduce the amount of room available for the developing baby, a condition known as intrauterine constraint. Likewise, a misaligned pelvis affect a mother’s ability to have a natural, non-invasive birth.
If the baby settles into a position in which its feet or buttocks are facing the birth canal, also know as breeching, many times the delivery will result in a cesarean delivery (C-Section). Chiropractic can help to balance the pelvis, to safely avoid breeching as well as intrauterine constraint. Benefits of prenatal chiropractic include:
- Relieving back pain
- Reduced headaches
- Better time sleeping
- Alleviating neck and joint pain
- Preventing a potential C-Section
- Controlling symptoms of nausea
- Reducing the time of labor and delivery
