Conditions from Pregnancy and How We Can Help
A woman's body undergoes enormous changes that begin at the moment of conception. Here are some common conditions of pregnancy.
Hormonal Changes: These hormones affect each woman's body differently. Hormones are thought to be the cause of the well-known malady "morning sickness." Estrogen is involved in the growth of breasts and uterus and increases blood flow. Progesterone works with hormone relaxin to cause several bodily changes, including the softening of cartilage, ligaments, and joints loosening. Our prenatal chiropractor can address help you with any pain or discomfort caused by hormonal changes.
Back Pain: Studies report that a large number of women experience some form of back pain during pregnancy. As the fetus develops in the woman's uterus, the woman's organs can begin to shift and relocate, if only slightly. Sometimes this places pressure on the spinal column, causing misalignment and pain. Our prenatal chiropractor can use gentle manual manipulation to realign the, helping to relieve the pain. As the baby grows, the added weight can cause back pain for many women. Our chiropractic adjustments can help to minimize a patient's back pain by correcting spinal posture and maintaining the mother's natural spinal curve.
Subluxation and In-Utero Constraint: This happens when pelvic motion is restricted, and the position of the baby in the uterus isn't ideal for delivery. Our chiropractor can treat this condition to relieve the uterus and pelvic cavity, allowing for ideal positioning for the baby.
