Pregnancy is a beautiful time, a blessed time to celebrate new life. It is also a time where the body performs at its best, as it is sharing your energy with your baby.
From the moment of conception, the human body undergoes a series of changes, both positive and negative. In addition to common conditions such as nausea and indigestion, pregnant women experience back and pelvic pain, sciatica, discomfort, and even anxiety. Since the body is performing at a higher capacity than normal, it is easier for it to suffer from stress and fatigue.
When the body, especially the spine, experiences a lot of stress, subluxations can occur, resulting in miscommunication and dysfunction. Changes during pregnancy, such as weight gain and pelvic posture and rotation, to help support the mother and baby add on to any current stress to the spine and can lead to nerve miscommunication.
Chiropractic care helps to re-establish the communication between the brain and the nerves in the body. Through gentle manipulation and techniques, chiropractors are trained to adjust a pregnant woman’s body without adding additional pressure to their abdomen. Results will often include relief from back pain and control over nausea. In addition, expecting mothers could see a reduced time of labor, and even avoiding a possible c-section, during delivery. Chiropractic care allows the mother to relax, to adjust to the changes in the body, and to prepare for her new bundle of joy.
