I’m Pregnant – Now What?
You have all the baby books, you are working on decorating the nursery, and you probably have your pre-natal visits set up. But what about taking care of your spine during pregnancy to help relieve back pain and other symptoms associated with pregnancy? Life doesn’t slow down just because you are pregnant.
Did you know that regular chiropractic adjustments can help ensure a healthier pregnancy, labor and even birth?
Pregnancy is tough on the body’s skeletal structure, especially as baby grows and gets heavier! The weight of the expanding belly can change your posture and spinal curvature. Chiropractic care can help correct posture problems and help your spine keep its intended curve. It can also help with nausea and vomiting and help get the baby into the proper position, by ensuring that there are no vertebrae out of place.
Other benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy include:
- Reducing the time of labor and delivery
- Relieving back, neck or joint pain
- Preventing a potential cesarean delivery
- Help with leg cramps and constipation
