Chiropractic care is a natural way to ensure the body remains in proper balance, free of segmental joint dysfunction and improper biomechanics, and is an effective method of keeping people of all shapes and sizes functioning at a high level.
One demographic which has been shown to see particular benefits from chiropractic care is pregnant mothers. Chiropractic care can ensure a pregnancy with less discomfort in all stages from early pregnancy to labour and birth.
Some general reasons to enquire regarding chiropractic care during the pregnancy would be:
Back pain – as the bump continually grows there will be added stress on the back (especially the lower and middle back ). Chiropractic techniques are very effective at mitigating these problems and home care advice provided will be helpful for you along the journey.
Neck pain and headaches – as the stresses increase in the body there is often tension built up in the cervical spine which can cause neck pain and headaches. Chiropractic techniques are effective in minimising these.
Optimising health – When there are dysfunctional segments in the spine there will be compensations which often lead to pain and discomfort. Chiropractic care is extremely effective in optimising joint mobility throughout the body.
Better positioning of the baby - if the hips and lower spine are immobile or dysfunctional the baby could end up sideways, posterior, or breech – none of which is an ideal position for labour and birth.
Faster and less painful birth – chiropractic care has been found to decrease the time of labour, making the process somewhat easier.
These are just a few of the benefits which can be seen by pregnant mothers during the journey from pregnancy to birth. Let City Chiropractic help you along the way.
