Chiropractic During Pregnancy
A question we often hear women ask when they become pregnant is, “Is it safe for me to continue to receive chiropractic care?” Chiropractic care is safe for expectant moms and it can alleviate symptoms associated with pregnancy such as: low back pain, sciatica, headaches, and rib pain. Women experience so many changes to their body during pregnancy and receiving adjustments during those 9 months can be extremely beneficial.
Chiropractic care can help with much more than the aches and pains many women experience during pregnancy. Getting the nervous system functioning optimally will help all systems function more efficiently. A healthier mother means a healthier baby. Many women also experience a smoother labor and delivery after they have been under chiropractic care. Chiropractic treatments can also help turn a breech baby. Turning a breech baby can save an expectant mother from undergoing a C-section.
I think it’s safe to say that we all want what’s best for our children. Don’t you want your child to be as healthy as possible? Of course you do! Babies and children who are receiving chiropractic care are sick less often, have fewer ear infections, and have better immune systems than those who do not receive care. Chiropractic care truly is a family affair.
