For many women, pregnancy is a time of extreme joy, excitement, and anticipation all mixed together with nerves and maybe a little fear. Many first-time parents go to extreme lengths in preparation for the new addition to their family. While the new mom makes room in her home for the new baby, the body must also make room to accommodate another living person. This means many changes, and unfortunately for many women, pain becomes a part of that change. One way to alleviate pregnancy discomfort is with prenatal and postnatal chiropractic care.
When you consult with one of the qualified chiropractors at RxWellness Spine & Health, they can provide you with a complete consultation and details of why you might be experiencing chronic discomfort. Once we have a better understanding of your needs, we will provide a detailed treatment plan to help you get the most results in the best possible time frame. At RxWellness Spine & Health, we want to help you enjoy all the positive sides of your pregnancy by minimizing the pain and discomfort.
Why Seek Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy
Chiropractic care during pregnancy can help reduce back pain, headaches, neck pain, and general discomfort. Some women find that routine visits to their chiropractor throughout their pregnancy lead to shorter birthing times and a reduction in the chances of Cesarean sections. Regular visits also help to minimize nausea for those who suffer from morning sickness. Our chiropractor may also determine how your baby is positioned in the body, providing insight into the possibility of a transverse, breech, or posterior birth.
RxWellness Spine & Health for Pregnancy Pain
Prenatal chiropractic visits are very similar to routine visits, however, our practitioner uses extra precautions to ensure that pregnant patients remain comfortable throughout the session. We even pay attention to temperature settings to ensure mom and baby are comfortable during the session. At RxWellness Spine & Health, our qualified chiropractors use natural drug-free treatments to help expecting mothers manage the pain associated with pregnancy. Our procedures are non-invasive and safe for both mother and baby. We have special tables to protect both mom and baby during the adjustment. When you visit, you will talk with a qualified chiropractor, and together you will go over the action plan to keep you free from pain and discomfort during your pregnancy.
Postnatal Chiropractic Care
When a woman gains weight during her pregnancy, her center of gravity shifts forward and the spine is pulled out of alignment. In addition to this change, the production of relaxin can result in bones shifting to different positions and can lead to the compression of the nerves in the spine, resulting in chronic discomfort. After giving birth, the body should return to its original position, but in some cases that does not happen. This can result in some women experiencing constant pain for a prolonged period of time. When you work with a chiropractor, they will provide gentle adjustments to realign the spine and help bring the body back into balance.
