Prenatal/Pregnancy Chiropractic Treatment
Chiropractic and Massage during pregnancy for pain relief
During pregnancy the women’s body is changing and growing at an amazing rate. With the belly expanding forward away from the center of gravity, the woman is going to feel a pull on her low back as well as new pelvic pressure. The increase in demand of the spinal and pelvic ligaments, muscles, and joints can leave the pregnant mother with new aches and pains. Chiropractic care during pregnancy has not only proven to eliminate these new aches, but decrease labor time, and allow for a safer and easier birth!
Soft tissue/manual therapy release techniques, especially of the round ligament, along with regular chiropractic adjustments throughout the last trimester are extremely helpful. This in turn can reduce torsion in the uterus, a cause of intra-uterine constraint, of the baby and allows for optimal fetal positioning and preparation for birth.
