Chiropractic Care for Pregnancy

Pregnancy can cause a severe amount of discomfort and pain, especially in a mother’s back. Chiropractic medicine has become a popular method for women seeking out natural ways of dealing with their body’s constant changes during pregnancy. Chiropractic care during pregnancy can provide many benefits for patients including relieving and eliminating back, neck, hip, and joint pain. All of which is done without the use of dangerous prescription drugs.

Maintaining a healthy posture during pregnancy is key. It can significantly reduce pain and discomfort by helping the body adapt to the increased abdominal pressure and changes in spinal curvature. Chiropractic care can also prepare the mother to naturally contend with the amplified pain that can occur from continuous pelvic and postural changes during pregnancy. For expecting mothers, keeping the spine healthy is one of the best, all-natural, ways of keeping the immune and nervous system functioning at an optimal level. This benefits her as well as her developing baby.

Dr. Irvin Henderson, member of the American Medical Association Board of Trustees, studied the effects of chiropractic adjustments on labor and delivery. He reported that women who received chiropractic adjustments in the third trimester were able to carry and deliver their child with much more comfort. Establishing healthy balance and lumbar spinal alignment will help reduce the amount of restriction on the mother’s body and will optimize the developing baby’s position during development.

The implementation of chiropractic care for pregnant patients has shown to prevent or reduce the common prenatal conditions seen with neurological and physiological involvement postpartum. Continued chiropractic care will also be beneficial in assisting proper restoration of normal spinal biomechanics after birth.
