Have a Smoother Pregnancy With Chiropractic

Chiropractic is a safe, natural and remarkably effective way to enjoy your pregnancy. Here are five ways that chiropractic can be helpful during pregnancy.

Relieves Back Pain

Chiropractic can keep your spine in alignment. So being under care during pregnancy can help prevent and alleviate low back pain associated with pregnancy. As your baby grows, pregnancy can take a toll on your body’s skeletal structure. How? The weight of your growing belly alters your posture and spinal curvature. Not only can chiropractic relieve your back pain, but it can help correct posture problems.

Eases Uncomfortable Symptoms

Nausea or morning sickness are some of the most unpleasant symptoms many women experience during pregnancy. Chiropractic can help decrease these symptoms. That’s because if nausea and vomiting are partly caused by nerves pinched by vertebrae that are out of place, an adjustment will help correct the problem.

Boosts the Immune System (for Mom and Baby)

The primary premise of chiropractic care is that it allows the body to heal itself. It does so by removing interference in the nervous system. When the brain and the body can communicate freely, the body can function as it was designed. Because the immune systems of a mother and her baby are closely connected during pregnancy, chiropractic helps to ensure they both have a robust immune system.

Promotes Optimal Positioning for Baby

Chiropractic helps to align the mom’s pelvis and hips. If the hips and lower spine are out of place, the baby could end up in a breech, sideways or posterior position. None of those are ideal positions for labor and birth. Chiropractic adjustments can help your baby get in the proper position.

Improves Labor and Delivery

Another tremendous benefit of being under chiropractic care during pregnancy is it can help reduce labor and make the birth process more comfortable. If the mother’s spine and hips are properly aligned, labor and birth can progress more easily.
