Does Chiropractic Care Help Pregnant Mothers?
It is well known that chiropractic treatment helps many problems, conditions and symptoms. This is also true of pregnancy and it can actually be a big source of relief for an expectant mother. At Back Pain Relief Center, we have helped many pregnant women find relief from aches and pains and find other benefits through chiropractic and pregnancy.
It’s important to note that there are no known contraindications between pregnancy and chiropractic. All chiropractors are trained (ourselves included) to be able to provide adjustments for pregnant mothers.
The Benefits of Chiropractic and Pregnancy
The benefits of chiropractic care and pregnancy are huge. For the aches and pains and the general increase in back pain that women can experience particularly in their second and third trimesters, chiropractic can be very helpful. If you consider not only the extra weight of carrying an unborn child, but also the extra imbalance it creates, it’s easy to see how back pain is manifest in pregnancy.
Of course, there are multiple other areas that a pregnancy creates where chiropractic care can help, such as sciatica and headaches, and if the baby isn’t moving around as freely as it should, then a chiropractic adjustment can help to balance things out again and enable proper and natural movement inside the womb.
It can also help in other areas such as carpal tunnel syndrome, Bell’s Pasley and other complications.
Primarily though, we see pregnant women coming in to be helped with the general aches and pains that pregnancy can inflict. Things like:
- Differences in posture
- Increased back curve
- Changes in pelvic position
