What Are the Most Common Discomforts Associated With Pregnancy?
With pregnancy comes a range of aches and pains that can be difficult to ignore, among these the most common are neck and back pain, headaches, swelling, nausea, and mood swings.
Why Do These Discomforts Occur?
As your body makes room for your baby, it can alter your spinal alignment and cause other changes in your body like weight gain, and lead to added stress on your musculoskeletal and nervous systems.
What Is Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic care can help you manage the stresses that occur in every day life and those that occur due to injury or disease. It can help you regain or just maintain proper movement in your joints, particularly in your spine. This allows the nervous system to function at its best, promoting overall health and reducing aches and pains you might have.
How Can Chiropractic Care Help During Pregnancy?
Prenatal chiropractic care can provide you with some of the benefits you expect from visiting your chiropractor but with added help during and after your pregnancy. Pregnancy is not exactly an everyday stressor, and it is DEFINITELY NOT a disease or injury. Pregnancy can, however, add quite a bit of stress to the body as the body makes changes to accommodate the baby and prepare for giving birth.
Chiropractic care, Webster technique in particular, can help to prepare the body by promoting proper hip and pelvic alignment and movement. This provides the best possible environment for the baby, which can allow for a more comfortable and easier pregnancy and birth experience.
What Other Benefits Are There to Prenatal Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic adjustments can potentially help you avoid certain complications by keeping both your pelvis and spine in excellent balance to allow your body to adapt to the coming changes. Chiropractic treatment can also help accelerate post-partum recovery.
