Women are often told to expect certain discomforts during pregnancy, but that doesn’t mean that you simply have to suffer through those nine months. The certified pregnancy chiropractic experts at Loehr Chiropractic & Acupuncture utilize specialized adjustment techniques to help minimize your pregnancy discomforts and ready your body for labor.
Aches, Pains, and Pregnancy
Thanks to changes in hormone levels, alterations in posture, and the strain that being pregnant puts on the body, many women who are expecting find themselves dealing with lower back pain, pelvic pain, and headaches. These discomforts are not just part of being pregnant; they are messages from your body’s inner warning system indicating that something is not right. In many case, these pains occur because the spine is not moving properly or the alignment of the pelvis is off.
Chiropractic Care for Mothers-to-Be
Pregnancy chiropractic care is an effective, drug-free way to alleviate pain during pregnancy. However, the benefits of chiropractic care when you are expecting actually go well beyond pain management. At Loehr Chiropractic & Acupuncture, we often recommend wellness visits throughout your pregnancy to ensure the proper alignment and movement of the pelvis.
As chiropractors for pregnancy, we work with the Webster technique to gently and safely adjust the pelvis and the nearby ligaments to their proper positions. Why does this matter? Every ligament supporting the uterus is connected to the pelvis. Any rotation in the pelvis could cause tension in the uterus and put unnecessary tension on your unborn baby. Quality pregnancy chiropractic care also assists in preparing the body for labor. Women adjusted throughout their pregnancy report faster, easier labors, and a lower incidence of breech-presenting babies.
Chiropractic treatments during pregnancy can provide the following benefits:
- Help you maintain a healthier pregnancy
- Relieve pain in the lower back, neck, or joints
- Reduce the frequency and severity of headaches
- Control nausea
- Reduce the time of labor and delivery
- Prevent a potential cesarean delivery
- Decrease stress
