Pregnancy is one of the most impactful natural events in a woman's life. The hormonal changes that are necessary to maintain the pregnancy as well as the natural changes to the mother's body that prepare her for labor and delivery can arise throughout the pregnancy. In fact, mothers may experience pregnancy differently through several births.
Since chiropractic attends to the joints and ligaments of the body and is completely drug free, it can be an ideal regular treatment for mothers throughout their pregnancies and beyond.
Some of the benefits can be:
- Less nausea
- Relief of back, neck, hip and joint pain
- More room for your growing baby due to better alignment of the body
- Better sleep
While chiropractic care can be very helpful for normal pregnancies, there are certain circumstances when it is not advised. These include:
- Vaginal bleeding
- Placenta previa
It is important to check with your obstetrician and chiropractor to ensure that chiropractic care is right for you and your growing child. However, you are very likely to learn that it is, if your pregnancy is a healthy one.
