Hey Little Mama, Here's How to Feel Better!
By Genevieve Cunningham
Oh, that pregnancy glow. It seems that only those who have never experienced the joys of pregnancy are the ones who claim that pregnant women glow. For those who have been through it … the glow is all but a myth. It’s not so much a glow as it is pain and discomfort and headaches and stress and sweat. Of course, there are good parts too, but they often get overshadowed by the troubles, especially when you're in the thick of those nine months. But the good news is that there are things you can do to make the experience more enjoyable. For many women, that means turning to chiropractic care. Take a look at these ways in which chiropractic care may help you stay healthy and pain-free during your pregnancy.
Why Do I Hurt?
You hurt for so many reasons. The body is going through more changes than you can possibly imagine. It is literally expanding during this time, as you're probably well aware. Your joints are loosening and spreading apart, which can cause some soreness. Your weight is climbing and placing more pressure on your back. Your hormones are at their highest, which is causing headaches and mood swings and so many other side effects. It’s a tough time with tough and painful side effects.
How Can the Chiropractor Help?
Chiropractors help keep your body aligned. They’ll focus on the vertebrae of the spine, carefully placing them into their proper locations. As they do this, it encourages other joints and bones in the body to align themselves as well. This can lead to pain relief in the back and neck and all over the body, a reduction in headaches, an improvement in flexibility, reduced pressure on the back, better sleep, and many other positive side effects. While it may not relieve every pain, it can certainly improve the health and condition of your body from now until long after baby arrives.
