Pregnancy & Pediatric Program
We want our patients to have the most safe and enjoyable pregnancy as possible. Chiropractic care can help as your body adjusts and adapts to the changes of pregnancy, and can help with the recovery process after the delivery. During pregnancy, there are several physiological and endocrinological changes that occur in preparation for creating the environment for the developing baby.
The following changes can result in a misaligned spine or joints:
Protruding abdomen and increased back curve
Establishing pelvic balance and alignment is another reason to obtain chiropractic care during pregnancy.
A misaligned pelvis may also make it difficult for the baby to get into the best possible position for delivery.
This can affect the mother’s ability to have a natural, non-invasive birth. Breech and posterior positions can interfere with the natural ease of labor and lead to interventions such as c-sections. The nervous system is the master communication system to all the body systems including the reproductive system. Keeping the spine aligned helps the entire body work more effectively.
Potential benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy include:
Maintaining a healthier pregnancy
Controlling symptoms of nausea
Reducing the time of labor and delivery
Relieving back, neck or joint pain
Preventing a potential cesarean delivery
Decreasing pain and symptoms due to sciatica, pubic symphysis diastasis, carpal tunnel and more.
The trauma from the birthing process can cause subluxations or neurological dysfunction in a baby's spine. Chiropractors perform gentle adjustments on babies to remove any subluxations and make sure the nervous system is functioning properly. This will ensure optimal growth and development during such a vital time. Parents have seen many benefits with their babies through chiropractic care.
