Chiropractic Care for Pregnant Women
During pregnancy, a woman’s body goes through endocrinological and physiological changes to create an environment for the developing baby. A pregnant woman may experience pelvic and postural changes and an increased back curve. The baby may have trouble getting into the best position for delivery if the pelvis is misaligned. That is why it is so important for women to seek chiropractic treatment during pregnancy. Our team here at Family First Chiropractic & Wellness is here to help your body stay in the best condition for you and your growing baby.
What Happens to The Body During Pregnancy?
As the baby grows in the womb, the weight puts pressure on several areas of the body. Additionally, the ligaments relax more, making it possible for the baby to move through the birth canal. This leads to a more curved spine, pelvic changes, and uneven weight distribution. These are some of the biggest reasons for back pain, neck pain, and injuries during pregnancy. There is also the possibility of long deliveries and breech birth.
How Can A Chiropractor Help?
Dr. Mayo is skilled in adjusting the spine to help maintain the health and wellness of the discs, nerves, and joints. The adjustments can help relieve lower back pain, neck pain, sciatica, and other conditions that may occur during pregnancy.
Prenatal chiropractic care can also help control nausea, improve quality of sleep, and maintain an overall comfortable pregnancy. Dr. Kip is also certified in Webster Technique. This specific technique aligns mom's hips and can help a baby get into optimal position before birth.
Is Prenatal Chiropractic Care Safe?
Dr. Mayo uses gentle and non-invasive techniques, making chiropractic safe for pregnancy and children. His techniques focus on the nervous system and provide spinal adjustments to enhance the body to work more efficiently.
