The Benefits of Chiropractic Care during PregnancyStudies show that chiropractic care is generally safe for pregnant women. It is effective in reducing spinal nerve stress, alleviates lower back pain, and promotes overall health. The adjustment of misaligned joints, spine, and muscles will greatly benefit the mother and the would-be born baby. It will significantly improve the mother's quality of life and lessen her reliance on OTC pain medications. Our chiropractic care will also help control the symptoms of nausea, align the pelvis for easier delivery, reduce the time of labor and delivery, and prevent a potential cesarean operation. The adjustments will also alleviate the symptoms of sciatica, which is common in the later stage of pregnancy. Some would-be mothers complain about the sharp burning lower back pain that runs down to their legs, which makes sitting or walking extremely uncomfortable. Our sessions will also help control urinary incontinence and the many other discomforts that pregnant mothers usually experience.
The benefits of chiropractic treatment to pregnant women are overwhelming but it is not a type of cure-all treatment during pregnancy. Those who are experiencing serious symptoms and other health conditions should ask for their doctor's approval before trying chiropractic therapy. Seek immediate medical care if you are experiencing vaginal bleeding, having moderate to severe toxemia, or placenta previa or abruption. Do not try any spinal manipulation or adjustment if there are complications in your pregnancy.
