All About Prenatal Chiropractic



Prenatal care for you and your babyChiropractic care has become a common resource in helping pregnant women to be more comfortable and have healthier birth outcomes. Women who are pregnant and cannot take medications can suffer extreme back discomfort, but there is hope for those that suffer and it comes in the form of prenatal chiropractic care.

Prenatal chiropractors can be helpful to pregnant women by performing pelvic and spinal adjustments, to ease discomforts during pregnancy and to help prepare your body for an optimal birth process. Published studies have indicated that chiropractic care does in fact reduce labor time. Adjustments can make birth safer with fewer complications for both you and your baby.

Chiropractic care can also help with stresses that may have settled on the spine and nervous system throughout your lifetime and are more apparent because of laxity in the ligaments due to hormonal changes during pregnancy.

Prenatal chiropractic can be beneficial in alleviating many common discomforts of pregnancy, such as morning sickness, and acid reflux, as well as sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, difficulty sleeping, and lower back pain or neck pain.

Adjustments are a great thing to help with the restoration of balance to the nervous system, so that your body can follow it’s innate clues and have a safe and natural birth process.

Since some babies experience a spine misalignment during the birth process, chiropractic care is sometimes recommended for infants and young children. Some infants who have been fussy or experienced poor sleeping patterns experience improved sleep, nursing and breastfeeding after beginning chiropractic treatment.
