Did you know that chiropractic care is recommended for pregnant women? It’s safe, effective and offers specific benefits!
Chiropractic care is recommended during pregnancy
During pregnancy, your spine undergoes the additional stress of carrying a baby and the accompanying weight. As hormonal changes relax the ligaments in your pelvis to help your body prepare for eventual childbirth, your spinal structure becomes more flexible too. As your weight increases, these effects will also increase. The good news is that chiropractic care is safe throughout your entire pregnancy.
Regular chiropractic care can relieve your discomfort and help normalize your body functions to keep you in the best possible health. Chiropractic care may also help control morning sickness and ease your baby’s delivery.
Chiropractors train to meet the unique needs of pregnant women. Chiropractors will alter their treatment techniques to maximize your comfort. The revised techniques will suit your body as it changes during your pregnancy.
Make chiropractic part of your prenatal care.
Add regular chiropractic care to your prenatal care regimen. Also, eat a nutritious diet and exercise in moderation. Cut out tobacco, alcohol, caffeine and excess stress.
Chiropractic care ensures that your spine and nervous system are functioning at their best. This helps to provide a healthy foundation for your developing baby.
