by Administrator 4. November 2014 13:32

Visiting a chiropractor during pregnancy is not only safe but highly beneficial for the wellness of the pregnant women and her child. Many chiropractors are trained in prenatal and postnatal care to treat the expecting mother. Chiropractic care at the time of pregnancy is a great way to lower the intensity or even eliminate the normal pregnancy symptoms including back pain, pelvic pain, nausea, stress, anxiety etc.

How Chiropractic Care Helps

A chiropractor can play a great role in enhancing the well-being of the expecting mother in the following ways:

  • Establish Pelvic Balance:  Pelvic pain is a most common type of pain suffered by the pregnant women. Chiropractic care can help in diminishing the pain by regulating pelvic balance and body alignment, which provides comfort to both the mother and the baby.
  • Help in Safe Delivery: The chiropractic care also helps in aligning the body in such a way that the baby is in the best position at the time of the delivery. This helps to eliminate the possibility of dystocia (obstructed labor) and make the delivery safer and easier. It also prevents the chances of C-section delivery.
  • Control the Symptoms of Nausea: Chiropractic care also reduces the nausea experienced by the would-be mothers by making the body active and improving blood flow.
  • Avoid Back Pain:  Chiropractic care is very beneficial for the expecting mothers who want to avoid taking medications for back pain relief. Chiropractors use spinal adjustments to provide relief from the problem. 

Important Considerations:

  • Make sure that the chiropractor uses proper safety measures during the session.
  • The exercises recommended by the chiropractor should be done very carefully to avoid any complication. Initially, try to perform the exercises in the presence of the doctor to ensure safety.
  • Pregnant women should make sure to take the consent of their doctor before opting for chiropractic adjustments.
  • Discuss with your doctor about any health issue that you are experiencing currently or in the past.
