Pregnancy and Chiropractic
There are few things in life that are more exciting than expecting a child. Whether it is your first or your tenth, pregnancy reminds us all exactly how incredible the human body is. During this exciting time, the mother’s body is experiencing change at a rapid pace which can cause aches, pains and discomfort. However, these changes can also affect the experience for the growing infant. Mom’s pelvis and sacrum are vulnerable to misalignments which can affect the shape of the womb and cause distress for the baby or even an alternative position which can complicate the birthing process. Therefore, it is
crucial for pregnant mom’s to be under modern chiropractic care. Through very specific and gentle techniques the pelvis can be adjusted into the optimum position which can relieve aches and pains for mom but also allow for correct positioning for the baby as he or she approaches birth.
Research has shown that regular chiropractic care during pregnancy can reduce labor times and pains by up to 60%! We have yet to meet an expectant mother who said no thanks to that offer.
