How does Chiropractic Care benefit Pregnant Mothers?

If you are expecting a new baby, chiropractic care can help you manage your pregnancy symptoms so that you can have a smoother pregnancy and delivery.

Less Lower Back Pain With Spinal Adjustments from our Chiropractor

One of the biggest complaints during pregnancy is back pain. On average, women gain between 25 and 30 pounds during their pregnancy, and it is all in the lower abdomen. While this is great for the baby, it can cause expectant mothers significant discomfort, especially during the last few months of the pregnancy. Spinal adjustments with our chiropractor help keep the spine in its proper alignment, which helps reduce the increased back curve that pregnant women experience. They also help keep the SI joint and pelvis in alignment, which reduces sciatic nerve pain.

Decreases Overall Pain and Reduces Nausea

In the early and middle stages of pregnancy, many women experience nausea and have new body aches and pains. This can be attributed to the changes happening within her body and the increase in hormones. Regular spinal adjustments can lower overall body and leg pain and reduce nausea. With these reduced symptoms, pregnant women can maintain their exercise routines longer into their pregnancies, which is beneficial to both the mother and baby.

Reduced Chances of Having a Breech Birth in Webster

Spinal adjustments are perfectly safe throughout the entire pregnancy, even into the eighth month. In fact, when women receive regular adjustments in their third trimester, they experience fewer breech births in Webster. It is believed that the adjustments help give the baby more room, and they encourage the baby to move into a head-down position.
