Prenatal chiropractic provides specialized treatment for women experiencing back pain and other musculoskeletal problems during pregnancy.
You naturally gain weight as your pregnancy progresses, so your body must rebalance itself. This can increase strain on your spine, joints, and muscles. In addition, the growing baby’s weight centers on your abdomen, further increasing pelvic pressure.
These effects worsen over the nine months of pregnancy, causing an increase in spinal curvature as well as straining your back and joints. While slight, the increased curvature can cause noticeable back pain.
Discomfort will likely increase as your baby grows. By your last trimester, the extra weight, coupled with your baby taking up so much abdominal space, can result in cramping and digestive troubles, in addition to back pain.
Prenatal chiropractic helps to ease backache, joint pain, and abdominal discomfort without medications.
Most medicines aren’t suitable for pregnant women, so if you’re in pain, you often have to bear it as best you can. Prenatal chiropractic eases your discomfort safely, helping you feel better without risking medication side effects.
Research also indicates that many women receiving chiropractic treatment during pregnancy have less need for painkillers during childbirth and shorter labor. Chiropractic can sometimes help with breech births, where the baby is positioned feet first rather than head first.
The chiropractic treatment you require during pregnancy depends on the problems you experience and whether you have other musculoskeletal conditions. The Repair Recover Restore team assesses your needs during your consultation and creates a personalized treatment plan for you.
They use appropriate hands-on techniques or a chiropractic instrument to make pain-free adjustments if they find any misalignments during your physical exam. Your provider uses exceptionally gentle techniques to perform prenatal chiropractic treatment, taking the greatest care of you and your baby.
Attending regular prenatal chiropractic sessions ensures your pregnancy experience is more pleasurable and makes birth easier. Your provider can also help with problems that arise after the birth, like postnatal aches and pains and postpartum depression.
