For Moms to Be, Chiropractic Care May Be a Big Help

By Paul Rothbart

Few things in life are as exciting as expecting a child. I remember well the thrill of waiting for the birth of my son. It was the greatest and most joyful nine-month stretch of my life. Of course, it was a bit harder on his mother. I can't imagine what it must be like to have a little human growing inside. Exhausting I would imagine. Harder to navigate with a growing belly. That extra weight can also put excess stress on a woman's back. If ever there is a time when seeing a chiropractor can be helpful, it's during pregnancy.

Is It Safe?

While pregnant the safety and health of your baby is your primary concern. Naturally, you also need to look out for your health. You may wonder if there is a risk of harm to your or your baby while undergoing treatment. Chiropractic care doesn't involve drugs or invasive procedures. If you are healthy and experiencing a normal pregnancy, the risks are minimal, just as they are for non-pregnant patients. Complications during chiropractic treatment are rare. It is a good idea to have a check-up with your doctor before seeking chiropractic care. This can ensure that there are no problems that would make receiving treatment risky for you or your baby.

Problems That May Need Treatment

For the length of your pregnancy, you have a baby growing and developing inside you. As the fetus gains weight, so do you. This weight is concentrated in the lower front of your abdomen. This is not an optimal distribution of weight. It can throw off your balance and place extra stress on your spine and hips. Other joints may also be affected as they try to compensate to assist in carrying the extra weight. Pain can occur in any of these body parts. You always want to avoid pain, especially when carrying a child as taking medication can be risky. You need a natural form of treatment.

How a Chiropractor Can Help

When it comes to spine and joint pain, a chiropractor is often your best bet. The treatment is completely natural and drug-free. It carries little risk to your baby. A chiropractor will examine you gently and can find subluxations in the spine and joints as well as compressed discs. Any of these problems can be adjusted. Your pain can be relieved and with continued treatments, prevented or minimized in the future. A chiropractor can also offer helpful advice on posture and stretching that can help prevent further problems.

Expecting a child is a beautiful and natural experience. It can be hard on your body and the best way to treat it is naturally. Consider a visit to The Joint Chiropractic. You don't need an appointment. Seeing a chiropractor may relieve pain and allow you to enjoy the excitement of bringing a new life into the world.
