Chiropractic care prior to conception promotes a more regular menstrual cycle and optimal uterine function. It prepares the body to be strong, supple and as balanced as possible to carry the pregnancy. Many couples who thought they were infertile have been helped by restoring proper nerve supply to reproductive organs.
Regular chiropractic care during pregnancy helps maintain balance, alignments and flexibility. It has helps decrease morning sickness, facilitates shorter labor and delivery times and increases overall sense of well-being. When the baby is comfortable, it can assume the optimal birthing position.
Back Pain During Pregnancy
There are many reasons why a pregnant woman may experience back pain:
- Natural changes to her body such as softening of ligaments and loosening of joints as her body prepares to give birth.
- A shift in her center of gravity as her girth increases.
- Weight gain.
- Position of the baby.
- Her posture
- Stress, exhaustion and worry.
Even natural births can stress a baby’s spine. Breastfeeding problems can arise if the baby is unable to comfortably turn its head. Schedule a chiropractic checkup for your newborn as soon as possible.
