10 Rewarding Benefits of Prenatal Chiropractic Care
Pregnancy can be a stressful time for a woman’s body. A woman experiences so many changes throughout the gestation period.
Some of those changes include: increase in blood volume, increased breast size and tenderness, increase in the hormone Relaxin*, weight gain that changes biomechanics and center of gravity, among others.
Prenatal chiropractic care is beneficial for expecting mothers to help relieve stress to the body. At Flint Hills Family Chiropractic LLC, our primary goal is to educate and empower expecting mothers to have a happy and stress- free pregnancy.
Below we highlight the many benefits of Chiropractic Care during Pregnancy:
Controls symptoms of nausea- Chiropractic care helps to align the spine and pelvis, leading to an overall improved function of the nervous system. Aligning the spine may help reduce the frequency of nausea, by allowing the signals from the brain to travel uninhibited to the body and vice versa. Our nervous system works like an electrical circuit. When something blocks the signal, it is like a light switch being turned off. When the signal is no longer blocked, the light will come on.
Balances pelvis- A pregnant belly can cause stress and tension on mom’s pelvis. The Webster Technique is used to align the pelvis and back. It is essential for a pregnant woman’s pelvis to remain balanced and aligned for an optimal delivery process.
Dr. Campbell and Dr. Palmer are both trained in the Webster Technique.
Fewer medical interventions- Chiropractic care is a non-invasive method to achieve maximum comfort for pregnant women. No medication or invasive procedures necessary to maintain a healthy, enjoyable pregnancy.
Relieves back, neck, joint pain- The extra weight of a pregnant belly can lead to bad posture, which can wreck havoc on the mother’s spine, and lead to increased neck and joint pain. Regular chiropractic adjustments help to maintain proper biomechanical function of the body, helping to decrease pain.
Reduce likelihood of stalled labor- Proper pelvic alignment allows for an optimal pathway for baby and this can help labor to progress naturally. Since the baby would have more room with regular chiropractic adjustments, this may allow for a successful vaginal delivery.
Faster postpartum recovery- Consistent prenatal chiropractic sessions help to align the pelvis and spine, allowing for optimum positioning for delivery, therefore leading to an overall easier labor. Regular adjustments may lead to a more timely recovery, allowing mom to fully enjoy spending time with her baby.
Prenatal chiropractic care is extremely beneficial for mom, considering it provides lasting benefits during such a crucial time.
