Women experience physical and hormonal changes during pregnancy. These changes can cause body stress and pain for the expectant mother. Prenatal chiropractic care is essential in managing these changes for a safe pregnancy and delivery. At ChiroMom, we offer exceptional health and wellness care to women in Bellmore, Seaford, Merrick, Massapequa, Wantagh, and the surrounding areas.
Is Chiropractic Care Necessary for Pregnant Mothers?
If you are pregnant, you are already familiar with some pregnancy-related symptoms. Pregnant women often experience fatigue, nausea, back pains, and general discomforts. Naturally, the body of a pregnant woman experiences a range of physical changes. These changes are a result of misalignments like pelvic orientation changes and postural changes. Chiropractic care ensures proper management of pain or discomfort through a whole-body approach.
Importance of Prenatal Chiropractic Care
Pregnancy can be a very stressful experience. Chiropractic care helps reduce pain and works to make the delivery process as easy as possible. Our chiropractor is skilled at restoring pelvic balance and creating proper space in the womb for the baby. There are many ways in which chiropractic care can benefit expecting mothers. These benefits include:
Joint, neck, and back pain relief
Chiropractors work on muscles, ligaments, spine alignment, and joints for more stability and better body functioning.
Optimal baby positioning and for a better birthing position
Chiropractic care allows for more room in the womb for the baby to grow through pelvic alignment. Our chiropractor positions the baby for delivery during these chiropractic sessions, especially in the last months of pregnancy.
Minimizing labor and delivery time
Women who receive chiropractic care during pregnancy experience shorter labor time than those who don't. This is a result of the pelvic alignment, which allows the baby to pass through the birth canal more easily.
Helps in special situations
Some women don't have normal pregnancies or deliveries. If you have a malpositioned baby or have had a cesarean delivery before, chiropractic adjustment helps ensure proper positioning. Prenatal chiropractic care helps maintain a healthy pregnancy and a safe delivery in unique situations.
To help with postpartum pain
You can choose to visit your chiropractor even after delivery. Chiropractic care helps with postpartum neck and back pain relief.
To control and reduce nausea symptoms
During a visit to our clinic, we work to manage pain or discomfort in your nerves and spinal cord, which improves the general functioning of the nervous system. This helps reduce nausea and the possibility of reoccurring in the future.
