One of the most crucial times for a woman to receive Chiropractic care is during pregnancy!
From the time a child is conceived until birth a woman’s body goes through some of the most amazing, yet uncomfortable, changes a human body can endure. Posture, bone structure, and soft tissues move and change, sometimes and often enough, resulting in aches and pains. Only those who have been pregnant can truly describe the changes a woman’s body is subject to when pregnant. The best news is chiropractic care can help!
Can a Chiropractor treat someone who is pregnant?
YES! A chiropractor can treat a pregnant woman. All chiropractors are trained to work with women who are pregnant. Investing in the fertility and pregnancy wellness of women who are pregnant or trying to conceive is routine care for most chiropractors.
How can chiropractic care help with your pregnancy?
A woman who was average weight before getting pregnant should gain 25 to 35 pounds after becoming pregnant. This weight causes the spine, joints, and soft tissues to move and adapt to the sudden and rapid gaining of weight. This sudden increase in weight can cause subluxations in the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar regions of the spine as well as joint issues. Chiropractors are trained to identify and correct subluxations in order to restore the spine back to the most natural position. When a doctor of chiropractic adjusts a pregnant woman, they are making sure the pelvis is in the proper position, all 28 vertebrae are in proper alignment, and all joints are in proper positioning.
