Prenatal Chiropractic Care is Beneficial
By Virginia Laird
Pregnancy is not pleasant for every woman. Some ladies experience every pregnancy symptom in the book. Others may have the presence of only the ever-growing belly reminding her of the baby’s impending entrance to this world. Still there are some that fall somewhere in the middle with a handful of symptoms. No matter what or how many symptoms show up with your pregnancy, every woman’s body undergoes changes that can’t always been seen by the naked eye.
While a baby is taking over the full abdomen, using your bladder as a trampoline, and doing cartwheels off your spine, your joints and spine are moving, making room for this precious little one. The following are things that can happen to your body while you tote a sweet baby around in your belly for the next nine months:
A growing belly can cause a curve in the spine
Pelvis bones are ever moving during pregnancy causing hip pain
Posture changes as our body adapts to having a growing person in the abdomen
As your body goes through these changes, it is important to seek out a chiropractor’s help in finding relief from “growing” pains. The Joint Chiropractic in your local community can help you get started on a personalized plan that can include stretches and exercises to help you cope with your changing body.
Benefits of Chiropractic Care while Pregnant
Chiropractic care while pregnant will help you get your pelvis back in line. As your pelvis moves around making room for the baby, it can cause a great deal of pain for you. Pelvic movement, although very normal during pregnancy, can also be misaligned, causing a reduction of the space your baby actually has to grow.
With the help from a chiropractor at The Joint Chiropractic, you can also get on the path of keeping your spine in line during your pregnancy. Your spine plays a huge role in your body’s communication. Maintaining good spinal alignment helps your overall body stay healthy.
Several benefits you may experience from chiropractic care while pregnant may include:
Reduced amount of nausea spells
Possibility of a reduced time in labor and delivery
Maintaining an overall healthier pregnancy
As a mother of three, I am not sure that there is any way to avoid the aches and pains that a body goes through while pregnant. However, I can say that I appreciated all the assistance I could find that was legit and holistic during my pregnancies.
