Treatment for Pregnancy Related Symptoms
Did you know that women who receive chiropractic care report faster and easier deliveries? While no one likes to be in pain, as it can also cause a great deal of anxiety and stress, neither are good for a mom-to-be or her baby. Getting adjusted regularly by a chiropractor while pregnant can help ease or even eliminate pain, making the process of having a baby a lot easier.
TREATMENT OF PREGNANCY PAINS AND DISCOMFORTS
During pregnancy, a woman’s center of gravity shifts forward to the front of her pelvis. This additional weight in front causes stress to the joints of the pelvis and lower back. As the baby grows in size, the added weight causes the curvature of mom’s lower back to increase, placing extra stress on the fragile facet joints on the back side of the spine. Any pre-existing problems in a woman’s spine tend to be exacerbated as the spine and pelvis become overtaxed, often leading to pain and difficulty performing normal daily activities. In addition, hormonal changes cause ligaments to become looser and cause the joints to become less stable.
Baltimore Back and Pain Center should be your partner for a healthy pregnancy. Chiropractic care offers a non-invasive, safe form of care to help alleviate this pain and make having a baby easier on mom. Diversified chiropractic adjustments are safe for mom and baby throughout the duration of her pregnancy. Our doctor can also offer nutritional, ergonomic and exercise advice to help address your special needs.
Chiropractic care throughout pregnancy can relieve and even prevent the pain and discomfort frequently experienced in pregnancy, and creates an environment for an easier, safer delivery. Most moms-to-be find that chiropractic care helped them avoid the use of pain medications during their pregnancy, and studies have shown that chiropractic adjustments help to reduce time in labor.
Chiropractic appointments for pregnant women should be scheduled about as often as OB/GYN appointments. And of course, more frequently if necessary.
