Chiropractic During Pregnancy
Preparing to become pregnant or already within the journey can be an emotional and stressful time. Chiropractic care can help reduce stress by targeting the parasympathetic system, better known as the “rest and digest” of your nervous system. Allowing your mind and body to become relaxed can make this time much more enjoyable! When mom has reduced nervous system interference, she is functioning at her best and the baby’s development is optimal. Pregnancy is a hard job. You’re creating life! With this, aches and pain are common as your body changes rapidly. However, it is important to understand that pregnancy does not mean you have to be in pain. Chiropractic can help alleviate low back, pelvic, sciatic pain, mid-back, and neck pain.
Labor and delivery can be a taxing time for moms. Your body has gone through rapid changes to deliver the baby and with that, it deserves some attention! Chiropractic care can correct misalignments within the spine that occurred with contractions and delivery. These misalignments can lead to muscle tension, increased stress, and altered mechanics. Encouraging that communication between the body and the brain is important as you navigate motherhood.
