When women are pregnant, their bodies go through drastic changes to prepare for carrying, protecting, and sustaining the new baby. This process creates a tremendous strain on the neck and back as well as many muscles and ligaments throughout the body. Chiropractors can help relieve the pain and uncomfortable feelings that accompany these changes.
Chiropractic adjustments and related treatments are completely safe for both mom and baby, but always tell your doctors if you are pregnant or if you are planning on having a baby. This will allow your chiropractor to create a specialized treatment plan to provide the most benefit to you and your baby. Chiropractic adjustments are healthy and non-invasive and can make the entire pregnancy term and birthing process much easier for women.
During chiropractic treatments for pregnant women the doctor will help to loosen tight joints and muscles and can use soft tissue techniques to help relieve tension with ligaments. Chiropractic treatments can also help pelvis pain, which is caused when the pelvis joint is under added pressure and is tilting anteriorly during the pregnancy.
Chiropractic treatments can help you have a more pleasant and natural child birth, making the delivery process less painful and shorten the recovery time.
