9 Reasons to See a Chiropractor Through Your 9 Months

By Genevieve Cunningham

The nine months leading up to the birth of a new child are some of the most exciting months in your life. They are full of joy, a little bit of anxiety and, unfortunately, some serious pain. It’s stressful, both mentally and physically. One great way to protect your health and wellness throughout your pregnancy is to get chiropractic care. Check out these nine reasons to see a chiropractor all nine months long.

  • Back pain relief - Back pain is a common complaint of pregnant women. Chiropractors may be able to align the spine properly and keep the spine in a more comfortable position.

  • Reduction in headaches - Not all expectant moms suffer from headaches, but those who do really suffer. Chiropractic care can sometimes reduce headaches in both severity and frequency.

  • Better sleep - The more comfortable your body, the better sleep you’re likely to get. Chiropractic care may help provide the comfort you need to get a little more rest before baby’s arrival.

  • Joint pain relief - Another common complaint of the expecting mother is that of joint pain. The knees and hips are especially common. Chiropractic care may help rid the body of these pesky pains.

  • Sciatica - Sciatica is a serious pain that occurs when pressure is placed on the sciatic nerve. With an aligned spine, it may encourage the pressure on this area to be released, thus eliminating this pain.

  • More energy - An aligned spine means an aligned central nervous system. This can encourage efficient function of body systems, which may free up poorly used energy in the body.

  • Less illness - The efficient function of the nervous system means efficient function of body systems. One of these is the immune system, which then means less illness and a healthier body in general.

  • Less stress - It’s not that chiropractic care eliminates mental stress, but it does keep your body healthier, which eliminates physical stress. When physical stress is eliminated,  it can then lead to less mental stress, as well.

  • Preparation for birth - Chiropractic care can get your joints and the rest of your body ready for labor. Will it still hurt? Yes! But, it can prepare your body for the journey ahead.
