Experience the Comfortable Pregnancy You Deserve

pregnant women holding her backIt’s no surprise that a woman’s body undergoes numerous changes during pregnancy. A hormone called “relaxin” is released in her system, loosening muscles and ligaments to allow expansion of her pelvis during the birth process.

Relaxation of these tissues, along with increased weight gain, causes the low back to naturally arch forward. This in turn tightens the low back muscles, as well as the muscles in the front and back of the thighs. And, as a chain reaction, more stress is created on the arches of the feet.

To top it off, these changes combined with naturally occurring tissue swelling in the legs lead to symptoms of low back, leg and foot pain. These are common ailments chiropractors successfully address in their office with gentle adjustments and muscle therapy.

It is also common for pregnant women to experience upper back and neck pain, as well as stress headaches. These ailments can occur from carrying, holding or feeding their baby.

Providing Natural Relief

As pain relievers aren’t advised during pregnancy, chiropractic care is an excellent and effective alternative. Gentle chiropractic adjustments to the upper back and neck help relieve muscle and nerve irritation, as well as restore the motion and flexibility in these areas. In addition, we recommend muscle relaxation therapy, and at-home stretches and exercises to rehabilitate and stabilize the spine to prevent future injury.

Easing Labor Pains

For most pregnant women, the biggest source of pain comes with labor and delivery. Women who get regular chiropractic adjustments throughout their pregnancy will ensure their spine, hips, and pelvis are properly aligned. Because the alignment of the spinal column affects nerve response, adjustments can also help alleviate labor pains due to contractions and make dilation more efficient.
