Are you pregnant, or do you know someone who is or plans to be?
Many people don’t realize that chiropractic care offers particular benefits during pregnancy.
The benefits of chiropractic care when you are pregnant
During pregnancy, your spine undergoes the additional stress of carrying a baby and the accompanying weight. 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 baby grows, 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. It can potentially ease your baby’s delivery.
Chiropractors receive training to safely meet the unique needs of pregnant patients. Chiropractors will alter their treatment techniques to maximize your comfort.
Make regular chiropractic care part of your prenatal care regimen.
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.
Chiropractic care can safely be given throughout your pregnancy. The final decision about your treatment—pregnant or otherwise—is always yours.
You may find chiropractic care particularly helpful late in the pregnancy. This is the time when your spine is under the greatest stress.
We are accepting new patients.
