Chiropractic care is an alternative medicine that treats the spine column, discs, and related nerves and bone structure. It avoids the use of surgery or medication. Your provider uses expert techniques to adjust misaligned joints and alleviate overall pain and nerve stress.
Chiropractic care for pregnancy helps with ailments like headaches, hip and low back pain, upper back pain, and sciatica, where low back pain can radiate down your leg. Treatment can also improve pubic-bone discomfort and rib misplacement.
The providers at Kerinver Chiropractic are specifically trained to work with pregnant patients and use techniques that avoid extra pressure on your belly. There are no known complications arising from chiropractic care during pregnancy.
It’s important to discuss your medical history with your provider before moving forward with care. Your provider may have you avoid chiropractic care if you have:
In addition to office visits, your provider can equip you with stretches and exercises that are safe for you to do at home.
Pregnancy can result in a misaligned spine or joints caused by changes in your pelvis, protruding abdomen causing an increased back curve, or overall posture adaptations.
Luckily, chiropractic care can help establish pelvic balance and alignment. This helps avoid intrauterine constraint, where a misaligned pelvis limits room for your growing baby.
Your provider can also work with you to relieve pain in your joints, hip, back, and neck. You may even find the care helps with nausea and overall well-being.
During delivery, a misaligned pelvis can make it difficult for the baby to have a natural vaginal birth. This can occur with a breech, where the baby’s position is feet or bottom first in the uterus, or with posterior, where the baby faces out your tummy instead of back.
Chiropractic care can ensure an aligned pelvis, help avoid invasive processes like a C-section (cesarean), and reduce labor and delivery time.
