Today, women juggle an incredible amount of responsibilities: jobs, children, marriages, friendships, appointments - the list is endless! You've got to be healthy just to keep up. Pregnancy is one of the most important and complex phases in a woman's life. Although the changes women experience from pregnancy are natural, a little extra help is sometimes needed to cope with the dramatic changes in their bodies.
A Perfect Pregnancy
In addition to the noticeable changes pregnancy cause in a woman's body, pregnancy can cause subtle changes in the musculo-skeletal system; changes a Chiropractic is able to detect and correct. Because the baby lies forward in the woman's body during pregnancy, her center of gravity shifts and the spine alters itself to accommodate this change. As a result, many expectant mothers may experience low back pain, pelvic pain, and sciatica. Pregnancy is also hard on the neck and shoulders. Due to an increase in breast tissue, the shoulders are rounded forward, placing tremendous pressure on the spine, neck and shoulders. This can cause headaches, spinal pain, and carpal tunnel symptoms. These stresses and strains can be relieved with regular Chiropractic care. Many Chiropractic patients report that their deliveries were faster and more comfortable than delivers prior to Chiropractic care.
It's especially important during pregnancy that nerve impulses flow from the brain to all parts of the body. A slightly out of place vertebra can create nerve irritation that snarls the body's communication system. Using gentle spinal adjustments, the Chiropractic Doctor can relieve this nerve irritation, allowing the body's energy to flow freely again and eliminate periodic pain through nature's own healing power!
Choose Chiropractic Care:
Chiropractic care can help make this special time in your life much more enjoyable. It's easier to be fit, healthy, and experience a trouble free pregnancy when your body freely sends the right messages. Chiropractic care focuses on the overall effects of spinal misalignments on the nerves that carry health giving energy to every cell in the body. Chiropractic helps women get well and stay well - before, during and after their pregnancies.
