Pregnancy and Chiropractic Care

By Randi Morse

Pregnancy is supposed to be one of the most magical times of your life. You're carrying a life inside of you, there's simply nothing to be more excited about. Until you're pregnant. Some women are fortunate enough to have relatively easy pregnancies. They seem to breeze through each trimester without feeling ill or dealing with many side effects. Other women want to find pregnancy a joy but have a difficult time with it, mainly because they deal with some of the more unpleasant side effects that pregnancy can cause. Did you know that chiropractic treatment is not only safe for pregnant mothers, it can be extremely helpful?

Pregnancy Discomfort

There are a lot of things about pregnancy that can cause a great deal of discomfort. the mother's spine and body is working hard to support its own weight, as well as having to work extra hard to support all of the new weight the baby adds on. This throws off the center of balance and can cause muscle and joint problems, which can equate to pain. Because this extra weight is almost always caused by a protruding belly, the mother may shift her weight and change her posture, which can create an increased back curve and pelvic changes. 

Pregnancy Restrictions

There are two type of restrictions I'm going to talk about: joint restrictions and medical pregnancy restrictions. Joint restrictions are a situation during which the joint in your spine is unable to move properly, potentially causing disturbance in the central nervous system and in the muscles and tendons surrounding the affected joint. Chiropractors have many different techniques and treatment options when it comes to helping pregnant women, but there are so many medical restrictions placed on women during pregnancy that mothers are often nervous to seek out chiropractic care. They worry that treatment will harm the baby.

The good news is that for the average mother, chiropractic care is a fantastic option. It is drug-free, natural, and non-invasive. At The Joint Chiropractic, pregnant mothers can expect to find experienced chiropractors who can help them with many parts of pregnancy, including potentially helping pregnant mothers to find pain relief, helping to boost the health of both the mom and the baby, and helping to relieve some of the more annoying pregnancy symptoms, such as morning sickness. The Joint Chiropractic encourages new patients to walk-in and meet with a chiropractor to discuss treatment options.
