Pregnancy and Chiropractic
Chiropractic during pregnancy brings balance to the spine and mom’s rapidly changing body and eases a number of tensions. Chiropractic also properly aligns the pelvis for the growth and positioning of baby, providing an easier, safer, and more gentle birth process for mom and baby.
Chiropractic during pregnancy:
- Can relieve and even prevent the commons discomforts experienced during pregnancy
- Restores balance to the pelvis creating an environment for an easier, quicker, and safer delivery
- Reduces interference to the nervous system allowing the uterus to function at its full potential
- Has been shown to reduce the need for pain killers and medical intervention
Even the most natural birth can be stressful for baby and mom. Pulling, forcing and twisting a baby from the birth canal are fairly common practices. Cesarean section, forceps, suction extraction or eager hands can also do unseen damage.
Even the most “natural” birthing methods can cause subluxations—areas of your baby’s spine that distort key nerve impulses between the brain and body.
