Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy

Pregnancy is a beautiful and exciting journey, but it can also be painful.

According to the American Pregnancy Association, 50 to 70 percent of expecting mothers experience back and spine discomfort at some point during their pregnancies.

During pregnancy, a woman’s body goes through many changes to help accommodate the growing baby. This puts stress on the lower back, joints, and pelvis.

Thankfully, a few visits to the chiropractor can help alleviate the pain and ensure a healthy delivery. Chiropractic care can even be beneficial for newborns.

 

Benefits of Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy

Seeking help from a chiropractor is one of the best things to do during pregnancy. Here are five ways chiropractic adjustments could help:

1.    Back Pain Relief

Back pain is a common complaint of pregnant women. This debilitating pain is caused by loosening of joints in preparation for delivery. When this happens, some joints lose stability and cause discomfort.

Regular joint adjustments throughout pregnancy can help relieve pain caused by spinal misalignment and ligament loosening.

2.   Nausea Reduction

Can chiropractic care really help morning sickness? Yes!

Some medications can help with pregnancy nausea, but chiropractic care offers a more natural approach to nausea relief.

Chiropractic care can help alleviate nausea by addressing spinal misalignment and improving nervous system function — both help balance hormones and reduce morning sickness.

Adjustments can also help improve digestive issues that cause nausea during pregnancy.

3.   Pelvic Balance

Pelvic balance reduces the chances of the baby moving into a breech position before labor. Research suggests that chiropractic care alleviates pelvic tension and assists in turning the baby into a more natural position for delivery.

In a study published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, chiropractors reported an 82 percent success rate for turning babies from the breech position.

Smoother Delivery

Getting chiropractic care during pregnancy could make delivery much easier. Some studies even suggest that routine chiropractor visits could reduce labor time by 25 percent.

This can be attributed to routine adjustments that help keep hips, pelvic, and spine in proper alignment. Also, functional nerves help control contractions easily.

Better Sleep

Improper posture and back pain during pregnancy can lead to restlessness and poor sleep. By working with a ADIO Chiropractic, women will learn techniques for good sleep posture.

The Webster Technique

ADIO Chiropractic uses the latest techniques in the industry to help an expectant mother throughout each stage of pregnancy. The Webster Technique is a safe technique that’s widely used during pregnancy, as it’s an innovative way to stabilize and create the best alignment for the uterus and pelvis.

Using this technique can decrease the chance of uterine torsion and round ligament pain. The Webster Technique also gives the baby plenty of room inside of the uterus for a much easier labor and delivery for an expectant mother. 

Benefits of Chiropractic Care After Birth

Routine spinal alignments not only help relieve pain during pregnancy but support wellness after birth. Here are two reasons why:

Faster Labor Recovery

Regular chiropractic adjustments during pregnancy can help prepare the body to heal and recover after labor. Essentially, chiropractic care puts a woman’s body in proper balance.

Post Pregnancy Wellness

Chiropractic care during pregnancy helps reduce the chances of injury after giving birth.

For example, routine adjustments help avoid injury when bending to lift the baby, holding the baby for long periods, pushing strollers, and lugging heavy car seats.

Can Babies Benefit From Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractic care isn’t just for expecting mommies. Infants can benefit from adjustments, too. Newborns can experience many physical stresses during childbirth.

When their spine gets misaligned, they can develop asthma and digestive issues. Spine misalignments could even cause difficulties with breastfeeding.

If you’re worried about taking your infant to a chiropractor, we’re here to assure you that it’s 100% safe.

The chiropractor uses gentle pressure to make modest spine alignments that help restore nervous system function.

Live Healthier With Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic adjustments can relieve stress points in the body and fosters total body wellness. Choosing to invest in yourself with prenatal chiropractic care services is an excellent choice that will pay huge dividends in the long term.
