Believe it or not, chiropractic care is not only safe for pregnant women, but is actually beneficial during pregnancy. Chiropractic care is a science of healing without drugs, usually done by applying controlled force to certain parts of the body like the spine, joints and soft tissues.
Chiropractors are specially trained to treat pregnant women. A trained chiropractor will be sure to use the appropriate treatment techniques. For example, usage of table during the treatment to ensure that the pregnant lady is comfortable, as well as ensure that no part of the body is being strained. They will also make sure that while performing the treatment, they do not apply any pressure to the abdomen. Additionally, the chiropractor will recommend exercises that are safe to be used during pregnancy.
Why Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy?
Pregnant women develop several physiological and endocrinological changes during pregnancy. Such changes may result in misaligned spine or joints such as protruding abdomen, increased back curve, pelvic changes and postural adaptations. Chiropractic care will help establish pelvic balance and alignment.
