How Chiropractic can be beneficial during Pregnancy?
Pregnancy is a very special time for families and loved ones. Pregnancy and the creation of another life is a beautiful and miraculous process however, women can find themselves feeling aches and pains along with general discomforts related to their pregnancy. Chiropractic care during pregnancy can greatly help ease many of these discomforts.
During pregnancy, the increase in weight in the front of the pregnant woman’s body changes her balance and base of support. As she grows, more compressional forces are placed on her joints and ligaments, while her body releases a hormone called “Relaxin”. This Relaxin hormone aids in relaxing the pregnant woman’s ligaments and joints, causing the ligaments that hold her joints together to loosen in preparation of delivery. As a result of this, her joints feel less stable and her muscles tighten and contract to provide more support.
As the woman moves through her trimesters, specific Chiropractic techniques help with common pregnancy related aches and pains such as: Sciatica, Ligament Tension, Pubic pain and Dysfunction, Tailbone strain, Rib pain, Plantar Fasciitis, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and much more. It is never to late to see a Chiropractor during your pregnancy, however, the earlier support will help decrease unwanted discomforts.

Postpartum & Chiropractic Care:
Postnatal Chiropractic care is helpful to any mother as it helps the woman recover. This helps her focus on the health and wellbeing of her new baby and enjoy all the new precious moments. After delivery, the woman’s ligaments begin to tighten and the joints start to realign. Seeing a Chiropractor in the first few weeks to months after delivery can help avoid misalignments. It helps to support optimal balance in her joints and ligaments. All Chiropractic techniques can be modified to accommodate the new mom’s recovery whether she had a vaginal or cesarean birth. In addition to this, the Chiropractor can provide valuable advice on proper postnatal exercises. They provide proper ergonomics of nursing and carrying your newborn.
