Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy
Pregnancy can cause many uncomfortable movements in the spine and joints. Some of the typical chiropractic adjustments include a focus on the lumbar spine and the sacroiliac joint. This helps to shift the vertebrae back into alignment and can help to reduce or relieve lower back pain and also relieve pressure on the sciatic nerve, helping patients sleep better at night. Swelling and pain in the knees, ankles and feet can also be addressed with adjustments.
Chiropractic will definitely help make it easier for a woman to deal with the physical changes that occur with pregnancy, particularly during the second and third trimesters.
Chiropractic care can help your body to properly adapt to changes while relieving pain and providing supportive care throughout your pregnancy, delivery and after the baby has been delivered for both mother and child.
