Chiropractic care is the holistic maintenance of the spinal column and related nerves. It’s the art and science of adjusting misaligned joints to reduce spinal nerve stress and promotes health throughout the body. It’s safe and effective for everyone, from children to pregnant women.
All chiropractors are trained to work with women who are pregnant and there are no known contraindications to chiropractic care during pregnancy. In fact, some chiropractors focus solely on prenatal and postnatal care. During pregnancy, your body undergoes many changes in preparation for creating the proper environment for developing the baby. These changes can lead to misalignments in your spine and pelvis, which is where chiropractic care becomes a necessary part of your prenatal care.
There are a number of benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy, including:
- Maintaining a healthier pregnancy
- Controlling the symptoms of nausea
- Reducing the time of labor and delivery
- Relieving back, neck, or joint pain
- Preventing a potential cesarean delivery
If you’re interested in chiropractic care during pregnancy, seek a professional who has experience working with pregnant women. Be sure to openly communicate with your chiropractor about your body to reap the benefits.
To your health,
