Chiropractic Care for Lower Back Pain During Pregnancy
During pregnancy your body changes at a rapid pace to accommodate the growth of your baby. While this is a beautiful and wonderful experience, it can also be quite uncomfortable and even painful as your lower back and hips, and joints adjust to the new weight and onslaught of hormonal changes.
Chiropractic care focuses on the vital communication link between your brain and your body- your nervous system. In pregnancy this is especially important it affects the health of the mother as well as the health and growth of the child. Proper pelvic and spinal alignment is crucial to allow the baby enough room to develop and grow within the womb. It also provides healthy relief from pinched or cramped nerves and muscles without the use of drugs which can be harmful to the developing child.
As birth nears proper pelvic alignment allows for a safer, faster, and much easier labor for both mom and baby. After the birth chiropractic adjustments can help realign pelvic and spinal areas as your body readjusts itself to a more normal weight and shape.
