Chiropractic care is the process of adjusting or realigning your spinal cord to lessen pain and promote health throughout the body. Chiropractic care can relieve most types of pain.
Benefits of Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy
Chiropractic care is regarded to be beneficial for pregnant women. The International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) recommends that women receive chiropractic care throughout pregnancy to establish pelvic balance and optimize the room a baby has for development. During pregnancy your body changes, which includes producing hormones to relax your muscles. But those hormones, combined with your swollen belly, can leave you loose-limbed due to a rapidly lowering focal of gravity. All of this can hamper your spine.
Chiropractic care may be able to undo much of this damage and get your lower body in proper alignment for an easier birth. Chiropractic adjustments can reduce the likelihood of miscarriage, control morning sickness, and lower your risk of pre-term delivery. The chiropractor’s ability to realign and, in many cases, relax the ligaments and muscles in your pelvis has led to what is now known as the Webster Technique, a method that helps breech babies to turn themselves, naturally preventing a potential cesarean delivery.
