Most mothers and all doctors will stress how important it is to get high-quality prenatal care during pregnancy, but an easily overlooked facet of that care is the importance of chiropractic care; both for the mother and for the unborn baby.
Chiropractic care can be beneficial during all stages of your pregnancy, including pre- and post-conception. If you are planning to get pregnant, a pre-conception adjustment can get your spine prepared for the weight it will have to support.
During your pregnancy, the spine is put under a great deal of pressure that can cause other problems, such as:
- Low back pain
- Mid-back pain
- Neck pain
- Hip pain
- Tendon and joint problems
Regular chiropractic adjustments can alleviate the pain and pressures caused as the baby grows. Sciatica, pain that originates in the lower back and radiates down the legs, can be minimized using a chiropractor. The related aches and pains can be minimized with quality chiropractic care.
As your baby grows, the pressures and stress on your spine changes and ensuring your spine is aligned and balanced will help your body handle them while minimizing related problems. The closer to birth a mother gets, the more important it is to keep the body aligned to make for an easier and less stressful birth.
When it’s time to give birth, the woman who has had proper care will have an easier time with it as the body is already in the proper alignment.
Proper chiropractic care can make a pregnancy easier and less painful. By reducing pain in the mother, you will also reduce the stress in both the mother and the baby. It should be an essential part of prenatal care for every expectant mother.
