Women's Health

You're on the path to motherhood, when is your Chiropractic visit?

Women are discovering the many benefits associated with Chiropractic care throughout their pregnancy. Chiropractors focus on the body's natural design and support the mother's desire for a safer, easier birth.

Pregnant women can safely receive Chiropractic care. In fact, Chiropractic care can promote a healthy, stress-free pregnancy by alleviating joint pain, muscle aches and nausea.

Chiropractors learn to accommodate the special needs of pregnant women. Care is modified so that no pressure is applied to the abdomen. Some Chiropractors receive specialized training to address specific conditions that can arise during pregnancy. Such a Chiropractor will have a special table that adjusts to accommodate the belly at all stages of pregnancy.

Misaligned joints may be caused by the significant changes that occur during a pregnancy. Weight gain, changes to the alignment of the pelvis, changes to posture and increased curvature of the back all contribute to pain and discomfort. Chiropractic during pregnancy can be especially effective in reducing the effects of these physical stresses on the body.

Chiropractic care can provide relief for other symptoms of pregnancy, such as nausea and morning sickness. Stress to the uterus and its supporting ligaments may be reduced by means of a specialized technique in establishing balance in the pelvis.

Maintaining a healthy spinal alignment will assist the body in functioning more effectively during this significant time of change.

For more questions about Chiropractic care during pregnancy, please contact us and we will be more than happy to answer your questions.  Also, feel free to visit the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association website.  Here you will find more information about the benefits of Chiropractic for mother's and children.
