When it comes to life-changing, life-defining moments, few compare with the event of childbirth. It makes sense, therefore, to give yourself the strongest possible chance at a healthy, successful childbirth and this begins early in the pregnancy process. As early as the first trimester, physical and hormonal changes conspire to have you feeling out of whack. At Associates in Chiropractic, we specialize in pregnancy chiropractic: a gentle and non-invasive treatment that keeps the mother-to-be healthy and encourages a nurturing environment in the womb.
The mother’s body is weakened by an upsurge in the production of pregnancy hormones which help relax the ligaments in the pelvic region to make way for the baby. Add on top of this the weight of the body, which lowers her center of gravity and increases the amount of pressure to the pelvic region and you have a recipe for pain. A misaligned pelvic region can reduce the room available inside the womb and make labor more difficult. Chiropractic seeks to combat and negate these factors by maintaining spinal balance.
The main benefits of chiropractic during pregnancy:
Maintaining pelvic balance
Maintaining proper curvature of spine, despite the physical changes
Decreasing tension on the womb
Inreasing immune function for the mother
