Chiropractic care is helpful through every step of the pregnancy to keep body in optimal condition. Before and during pregnancy, chiropractic adjustment can help relieve pain and nausea associated with pregnancy. Chiropractors using specific techniques that avoid putting excess pressure on the abdomen. These natural and surgery-free spinal adjustments not only improves the health of the spinal column, but helps promote a healthier pregnancy, labor, and delivery.

Pain Management

Pregnancy can wreak havoc on the body’s skeletal structure, especially as the baby grows heavier with each passing month. As the weight of the baby changes, so does the posture and spinal curvature of the pregnant mother. Pregnant women often choose to ignore treatment since they consider back, neck, and joint pain an inevitable difficulty during pregnancy. Protruding abdomens increase back curvature and pelvic misalignments that cause pain and spasms.

Spinal Alignment

When the hips and lower spine are out of alignment, the baby could end up posterior, sideways, or breech. To prevent cesarean delivery, chiropractors can align the pelvis to make room for the baby to get into the best position for delivery. Pelvic balance and alignment can reduce unneeded stress on the uterus and prevent intrauterine constraint. Intrauterine constraint prevents ideal fetal positioning. Misalignment can make it difficult for a mother to have a natural, drug-free birth.

Pregnancy Symptoms

Pregnancy symptoms including nausea and vomiting can affect some women, while others remain symptom-free. Morning sickness can leave mothers dehydrated and nutrient deficient. Chiropractic adjustments can help remedy nausea and vomiting symptoms caused by pinched nerves. A spinal misalignment in the vertebrae can cause miscommunication in signals to the brain which can contribute to motion sickness, nausea, and vomiting.

Labor and Delivery

When a pregnant woman’s spine and hips are in alignment, it allows nerves and organs to communicate efficiently. Chiropractic adjustments can facilitate a faster labor and delivery. When a baby is in the optimal delivery position, they can navigate much easier through the pelvis and reduce the chance for dystocia, or difficult labor. When all the nerves and organs are in working order, labor and birth can progress more naturally and easily, perfect for those looking for a non-invasive and natural birth.

Chiropractic care isn’t just helpful before and during pregnancy, but also during the postpartum stage. Regular adjustments ensure the mother’s body is functioning optimally to ensure quicker healing times, better posture, less pain, and improved mood. Pregnancy doesn’t have to be full of pain, soreness, and aches. Try low-risk, cost-effective, and all-natural chiropractic care to stave off negative symptoms associated with pregnancy.
