Pregnancy Chiropractic Care can alleviate pain, strengthen your nervous system, and contribute to the overall health of you and your baby.
Chiropractic care is safe through all trimesters of pregnancy as early as the first month and does not harm the growing fetus. The type of care you experience may vary depending on your treatment plan, the chiropractor you visit and your pregnancy. Special pregnancy pillows, wedges and supports are used during treatment to ensure you are comfortable and relaxed.
Chiropractic manipulation is a gentle yet specific adjustment designed to help ease the symptoms of an unbalanced pelvis and misaligned spine. There are a variety of techniques the can be used and your pregnancy chiropractor will do a thorough assessment to determine which will be best for you. In addition, we will spend some time releasing tight muscles and ligaments in the areas of the body that are holding tension.
Your pregnancy chiropractor may gently open up and align the pelvis as well as release any tension in the ligaments of the uterus. This may allow space or room for your baby to move into the proper head down position naturally. If the baby is in correct position, this may also help maintain that ideal positioning leading up to delivery.
Many patients report significant improvements in their sleep, quality of life and overall health and general wellness.
