Visiting Your Chiropractor When You are Pregnant
At Integrated Health Solutions, we believe that most everyone benefits from chiropractic care, including moms-to-be. Chiropractic care and medical treatment benefit pregnant women and their babies by encouraging the body’s normal physiological functions. Here are a few examples of how chiropractic care helps contribute to a healthy pregnancy:
- An expectant mother’s stability and structural balance can be enhanced through chiropractic care allowing her to feel more comfortable throughout her pregnancy. The mother’s nervous system, which is hard at work controlling all of her body’s systems as well as the baby’s growth, will experience less nerve interference.
- Pregnant women who regularly see their chiropractor generally spend less time in labor and require less medical intervention than other mothers. Chiropractic adjustments can reduce or even eliminate tensions on the ligaments supporting the uterus, which has been proven to ease pregnancy symptoms and aid in delivery.
- The baby’s in-utero environment can be enhanced through chiropractic care. healthier and more comfortable for baby. Reducing tension in the uterus creates more space for the baby leaving them less constrained while forming skeletal structures, spine, and cranium. This also allows the baby to settle into the best position for birth.
- Due to all the extra weight in the belly area and hormone relaxing in the body expectant moms can develop intrauterine constraint that results in pain. Routine chiropractic care during pregnancy has been proven to help reduce pain and provide an easier labor and delivery.
