Three Ways Chiropractic Care Can Make Pregnancy Easier
Pregnancy is a journey for expectant mothers, both physically and emotionally. The body undergoes numerous changes to accommodate the growing baby, it’s crucial to prioritize maternal health and well-being. One safe and effective way to do this is through chiropractic care.
Reduce Pregnancy Discomfort
During pregnancy, as the body is adjusting to making room for the baby, it is likely for the spine to become misaligned. This can cause symptoms like back pain, pelvic pain, and joint stiffness. Chiropractic adjustments help relieve these discomforts by realigning the spine and pelvis. This reduces pressure on the nerves which can provide relief from unpleasant symptoms.
Align Pelvis for Smooth Delivery
Pelvic alignment is important for a healthy pregnancy and a smooth delivery. Dr. Pulver is trained in the Webster Technique specifically for prenatal care and can identify and address any misalignments in the pelvis. By correcting these misalignments, it opens the pelvis and allows for the baby to get into the best position for delivery.
In addition to chiropractic care, adding pelvic floor exercises in your daily routine can improve the likelihood of a quick and smooth delivery. Pelvic floor exercises can benefit women who are pregnant as well as women who are postpartum. These exercises can help strengthen the pelvic floor which reduces the risk of complications before and after birth.
Benefits of Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy
Chiropractic care during pregnancy offers many benefits including alleviating discomfort, supporting pelvic alignment, promoting pelvic floor health, and preparing for a smoother labor and delivery.
