Regular chiropractic care is an integral part of the prenatal and postpartum care during pregnancy.
With the release of the hormone relaxin, increased weight as well as change in weight distribution, the pregnant mother is predisposed to joint pain, muscle fatigue and possible nerve impingements affecting mostly (but not isolated to) the spinal and pelvic joints.
Doctors of chiropractic can alleviate the uncomfortable symptoms arising from the muscular, ligamentous, and biomechanical stresses encountered during pregnancy. We accomplish this through the use of a number of highly specialized procedures and techniques:
GENTLE SPINAL ADJUSTIVE PROCEDURES – specifically designed for use in the pregnant female to assist in maintaining correct movement in the pelvis and spine.
THERAPEUTIC EXERCISES AND STRETCHES – safe for use during pregnancy which keep spinal musculature strong, balanced and pain free.
SOFT TISSUE WORK – massage, trigger point work, soft tissue mobilization
DIETARY AND NUTRITIONAL COUNSELING – unique to the pregnant mother
GENERAL PREGNANCY INFORMATION – general info on pregnancy and support to the pregnant mom.
Chiropractic care during pregnancy is safe for both mother and fetus, and is beneficial for treatment of sciatica, back pain, pubic pain, rib pain, neck pain and headaches.
