Chiropractic Services for Soon-To-Be-Moms

Throughout pregnancy, expecting mothers have numerous health matters to pay attention to. Not only do you need to ready your body for delivery, but you have to be sure your body is helping your growing baby develop properly. Focusing on diet, exercise, and your OB appointments is absolutely necessary, and remembering to visit your chiropractor is important, too! 

A properly aligned spine will lead to a smoother delivery. When your spine is out of alignment, the rest of your body will be too. Your body's entire nervous system is reliant upon the spinal cord sending nerve messages to and from the brain and the body. Therefore, if a misalignment is cutting off the nerve supply to certain areas of the body or pinching a nerve, issues will occur. Many of our patients experience secondary conditions and unbeknownst to them, a simple adjustment could ease that suffering! 

Chiropractic: Easing Discomfort During Pregnancy

Our skilled chiropractors know how to adjust our care based on each individual we see. Because of our ability to cater to each patient, we are able to safely and effectively provide chiropractic care to expectant mothers. 

As the pregnancy progresses, the mother's body weight increases as the baby grows. Not only is mom's body supporting her own increased weight, but also a six or seven pound fetus, which causes increased stress on the spine. This leads to pain on mom's back, poor posture, and balance issues. To top it off, the protruding abdomen leads to an increased back curve, altered posture, and pelvic changes. To accommodate these many changes and ensure that your body is still in alignment, our chiropractic services will keep you comfortable and healthy.
