Prenatal Chiropractic Care and Our Fayetteville Chiropractor
Pregnant women know that they’re going to experience some aches and pains because of the way their body is changing. Many women don’t want to turn to medications for relief, so they seek out alternative treatments. Prenatal chiropractic care can address those aches and pain so you can enjoy your pregnancy. Our chiropractor at Johnson Chiropractic Center in Fayetteville, AR, can set up a treatment program to help provide you with optimal relief from the discomfort you feel.
How Can Prenatal Chiropractic Care Help Pregnant Women?
As a woman’s baby grows and her uterus gets larger, her center of gravity shifts. This puts pressure on her back and can slowly pull her spine out of its proper alignment. This means that there’s pressure put on the supporting structures, including the back muscles and nerves, because they don’t have the room they need to move properly.
The goal of prenatal chiropractic care is to get the woman’s spine into proper alignment. This takes the stress off her back so she can enjoy relief from the intense back pain that’s associated with pregnancy. Each adjustment that she receives from our chiropractor provides cumulative benefits, so she’ll feel better with each treatment. Our chiropractor may also provide her with stretches and exercises to do at home.
How Does Care from Our Chiropractor Prepare a Woman for Labor and Delivery?
One amazing benefit of prenatal chiropractic care is that it helps to prepare the pelvis for the delivery of the baby. Pelvic alignment can help to make the birth as safe as possible for the mother and her baby. This alignment will also help her during the pregnancy because she can be more active without having to worry too much about discomfort from sciatic nerve pain or lower back pain.
Women who receive prenatal chiropractic care can also benefit from having postnatal chiropractic care after the baby is born. This help to alleviate the changes to the spine that come with the birth of the child and the adjustments that she’ll make as she carries her baby around.
