Chiropractic Care and Pregnancy

Many women will experience structural changes during their pregnancy. Also, it is possible for pregnant women to experience complications during the pregnancy. Chiropractic care can improve the pregnancy experience with a few treatments.

A woman’s body changes because the body has to make room for the development and growth of the baby. This leads to stress on the joints, muscles, spine ligaments and pelvis ligaments. The stress of the pregnancy on the body will lead to strain muscles, misaligned joints and stretch ligaments. This is the reason for complications during pregnancy. Also, the body changes can cause spinal problems or irritate the spine. There are four problems that can rise because of spinal dysfunction which are extreme curving of the lower back, pelvis unable to open for delivery, gland dysfunction and hindrance of the somatic nerve flow.

Chiropractic care is able to improve nerve irritation involving the pelvis or spine and joint misalignment. The treatment will prevent a woman from having complications during a pregnancy. Many women are not aware of the symptoms that are affecting their pregnancy. For example, some of the symptoms that lead to pregnancy complications are numbness, joint aches, lower back pain, muscle spasms, sharp pain, headaches and baby unable to move in the womb. If you are having these symptoms then it’s time for a visit to a chiropractic doctor.

Many chiropractors will help a woman have a healthy pregnancy by helping the woman to understand the problems associated with being pregnant. In addition, the mother will have a quicker and effortlessly delivery. Chiropractic treatments will help relieve some of the pain from the stress on the joints, back, neck and pelvis. Also, the treatments can prevent vaginal tearing from delivering the baby. Most women want to have a natural birth but complications can lead to a cesarean section. Chiropractic care can help with avoiding a C-section.

The main goal for a pregnant woman is to have a smooth pregnancy and a healthy baby. In addition you should choose a chiropractor that is experience with prenatal care for women. Furthermore, it’s important to make a smooth transition from being pregnant to motherhood.

  1. I would love to stop by. But, I think it might have to wait until this summer. I did not know that Serlkay had ever expanded its size. I must say that a succesful family owned business in this day and age is a very refreshing sight! As well as this is a very refreshing site! Charlotte NC Chiropractor
