Chiropractic For A Comfortable Pregnancy

Posted on Sep 29, 2019


If you or someone you know is pregnant, consider chiropractic care. Why should pregnant women see chiropractors?

Chiropractic care helps maintain the body’s spinal column, as well as discs, bones and nerves. Through chiropractic adjustments, things are aligned properly, reducing nerve stress and promoting health and wellness without drugs or surgery.

When a woman is pregnant, she’ll experience many changes in her body as it prepares to give birth to a baby. These physiological and endocrinological changes can affect the spine and joints. Furthermore, women are likely to see pelvic changes and have to deal with postural adaptations. Also, pregnant women should expect an increased back curve and a protruding abdomen. Chiropractic care helps establish alignment and pelvic balance, helping increase the amount of room available for the developing baby and allowing the baby to get into the best possible position for delivery.

Since the body changes during pregnancy some women experience musculoskeletal problems. It’s not unusual for the uterus to be off-center. It pulls out in front and is not well-balanced in back… so chiropractic helps fix that. Meanwhile, hormonal changes can soften joints. Women can experience hip pain, which chiropractors address. Other common pregnancy ailments include headaches, low back pain, pubic-bone pain, and even rib misplacement. Hormonal changes relax the ligaments while rapid weight gain causes joints to become misaligned. Chiropractors are all about putting things back into proper alignment in order to alleviate symptoms.

During pregnancy, chiropractic care can help control symptoms of nausea while relieving back, neck or joint pain. Those who have regular chiropractic visits before delivering a baby can expect to reduce the time of labor and delivery and possibly prevent a potential cesarean delivery. Overall, chiropractic care helps make for a healthier pregnancy and delivery.

Lakewoods Chiropractic in Forest Lake, Minnesota, helps many pregnant women with chiropractic care. Most pregnant women visit once a month during their first trimester and then every two to three weeks until the last month, where visits occur weekly. Basically, chiropractic care helps relieve pregnant women’s discomfort, helping to make their experience less stressful. If you or someone you know would benefit from this, please call Lakewoods Chiropractic at 651-464-0800.

By far the best chiropractor I’ve ever used. They customize a plan just for you and don’t use a one size fits all approach. I wouldn’t recommend anyone else!! Thank you!!!

I have been experiencing low back pain for at least 10 rememberable years and decided on a whim to try chiropractic care at Lakewoods. I had never been to a chiropractor before so I had no expectations that it would work or not but after just my first adjustment I had instant relief for the first time in 10 years. I have since been super impressed with how everything has been explained to me and how my care plan has been formed. The staff are all very kind and have been very helpful as well!
