This period of rapid development, hormonal changes, the laxity of connective ligaments, and shifting of weight-bearing structures, may cause many pregnant women to experience low back and leg pain.
Chiropractic care can be quite helpful.
As the center of gravity changes, so does stress on the spine and the body as a whole. Activator chiropractic technique is an incredibly comfortable and stress free method of spinal alignment, which pregnant mothers really appreciate. Besides helping to relieve the discomfort many expectant mothers experience, chiropractic care helps normalize nervous system function. This is an important component of overall good health. The benefits of chiropractic care may also be noticed during delivery. Many chiropractic patients report that their deliveries were faster and more comfortable than their deliveries prior to chiropractic care!
Women who exercise moderately, quit smoking, eat healthy foods, and avoid alcohol during their pregnancies are to be congratulated. Those receiving prenatal chiropractic checkups can increase their nervous system capacity to function at its very best. This is an important element in creating a healthy foundation for developing babies.
Studies have shown that women under regular chiropractic care throughout their pregnancy actually had a reduced amount of complications and decreased labor and delivery time. One particular chiropractic technique, called the Webster Technique, is a non-invasive technique designed to remove the cause of intra-uterine constraint during pregnancy, often allowing the baby to move from a breech presentation to a head down position naturally.
All pregnant women should be under regular chiropractic care to help their pregnancy and their baby be as healthy as possible!
