Prenatal chiropractic care is gentle, safe treatment designed to ease delivery and speed up recovery!
Why should you see a chiropractor when you’re pregnant?
It doesn’t take long to start to see results! Women had substantial relief from back pain after just 1.8 chiropractic treatments (on average). Not only does treatment help with pain management during the pregnancy, it leads to a 24% shorter labor and delivery time.
Women’s bodies go through many changes during and after pregnancy. Chiropractic care helps relieve pain associated with the changing body. Some common symptoms include:
Along with treatment, we teach women how to biomechanically and physically adjust during the pregnancy through rehab exercises and stretches. Ensuring proper body mechanics lessens the likelihood of pain and maximizes our body’s capacities to function.
As the baby grows, the center of gravity in the woman’s body will be more forward than usual. Carrying the baby’s weight on the front side leads to an anterior pelvic tilt, which means extra-contracted and tight back muscles that can be painful!
