Back pain is a common problem faced by women during their pregnancy. At least 50% of women experience some form of back pain during their pregnancy. The growing body changes its centre of gravity placing extra pressure on the spine. Regular Chiropractic care during pregnancy can not only alleviate pain during pregnancy but can also help decrease pain during delivery as well!
Chiropractic care is a safe, conservative and drug-free form of treatment that look at the spine, nerve roots and associated muscles. Care involves an adjustment of spine to align it back to its normal position. An adjustment reduces stress placed on the spinal nerves, which can cause various other health complications. Therefore, chiropractic treatments address the whole body to promote health and well being.
Benefits of Chiropractic Care
Many medical experts recommend chiropractic care during pregnancy as it helps maintain pelvic balance and the low-back curve. A balanced pelvis gives a baby more room to move into the correct birthing position and can avoid some of the potential fallbacks of delivery. Other benefits include:
- Reducing back, neck and joint pain
- Reducing nerve stress to promote healthy development of the mother and baby
- Relieving pressure from the spine and maintaining better posture
- Restoring joints to ensure optimum range of motion
- Stimulates optimal functioning of reproductive organs
- Maintaining a healthy pregnancy
A visit to the chiropractic clinic begins with a comprehensive assessment which includes a physical evaluation, spinal assessment, and history. Based on the assessment a treatment plan is devised, which involving therapies, nutrition and exercise. Chiropractic care aims to provide comfort for mothers during and after pregnancy.
