Gentle, natural, and effective Pre-natal care will get you there!
Chiropractic care in pregnancy is an essential ingredient to your prenatal care choices. A large percent of pregnant women experience back pain during pregnancy. This is due to the rapid growth of the baby and interference to your body’s normal structural adaptations to that growth.
Pre-existing unnoticed imbalances in your spine and pelvis become overtaxed during these times. The added stresses lead to discomfort and difficulty while performing routine, daily activities. Chiropractic care during pregnancy can relieve and even prevent the common discomforts experienced in pregnancy. Specific adjustments eliminate these stresses in your spine, restore balance to your pelvis and result in greater comfort and lifestyle improvements.
Comfort for your baby, too.
As your baby develops, your uterus enlarges to accommodate the rapid growth. As long as the pelvis is in its balanced state, the ligaments connected to the uterus maintain an equalized, supported suspension for the uterus. If your pelvis is out of balance in any way, these ligaments become tight and cause constraint to your uterus. This constraint limits the space of the developing baby and can cause breech positioning and problems during the birth process.
