Chiropractic Care during Your Pregnancy

 

When you think about being pregnant and all of the various doctor’s appointments involved, as well as the planning you do for labor, chiropractic care isn’t probably the firs thing you think of. The fact of the matter is, however, chiropractic care can be extremely beneficial during pregnancy.

You see, your body is going through tremendous changes during pregnancy, both in a chemical sense and in a very physical sense. Your center of gravity is shifting, for example, which is responsible for many of the aches and pains of pregnancy. Add in all of the other bodily changes, and you start to see where chiropractic care can help.

There is some evidence to suggest, for example, that chiropractic care can help with morning sickness. By making regular adjustments, your chiropractor an help lessen the severity as well as the frequency of morning sickness.

Chiropractic care can help address a number of potential problems, too. It’s relatively common for your joints or spine to become misaligned while pregnant, leading to pains like back ache. In some cases, this misalignment can make labor more difficult.

The best time for chiropractic care during pregnancy, of course, is during the later stages. When your baby starts to really grow and you start to add weight, chiropractic care can help your body adjust to the changes.

There is even some evidence that women who have been under regular chiropractic care during pregnancy may experience a shorter labor. Some studies suggest that labor may be as much as a quarter shorter for women who are under chiropractic care, largely due to increased flexibility and movement in the pelvic area.

If you’re interested in chiropractic care, talk to your doctor today. She may be able to refer you to a reputable and effective chiropractor, and one who is used to treating women during pregnancy.
