What Is Prenatal Chiropractic?
Prenatal chiropractic, also known as pregnancy chiropractic, is a specialized form of chiropractic care that focuses on the needs of pregnant women. This chiropractic care aims to improve the overall health and well-being of both mother and baby by helping reduce stress and improve joint alignment.
What Does Prenatal Chiropractic Involve?
A prenatal chiropractor will use several techniques to help reduce stress, improve joint alignment and alleviate any physical discomforts associated with pregnancy. These techniques may include gentle spinal adjustments, massage therapy, and lifestyle advice. In some cases, a chiropractor may also recommend safe exercises during pregnancy to help strengthen muscles and joints.
It is important to note that all pregnancy chiropractic services are tailored to meet each woman's individual needs. A prenatal chiropractor on our team at Back to Basics will take a comprehensive approach to help ensure your comfort and safety during this special time.
How Does Prenatal Chiropractic Help?
Prenatal chiropractic can help to relieve pregnancy-related aches and pains by helping to properly aligning the spine, relieving pressure on the nervous system, and improving mobility. It can help deal with conditions such as:
Lower Back Pain
Expectant mothers can experience lower back pain as the pregnancy advances due to the extra weight of the baby and hormonal changes that affect ligament flexibility. A prenatal chiropractor can use gentle spinal adjustments and other techniques to help relieve this discomfort.
The growing baby bump can put extra strain on the sciatic nerve leading to pain that originates from your lower back and radiates down one or both legs. A pregnancy chiropractor on our team can utilize massage therapy, spinal adjustments, and other techniques to help reduce this pain.
When the pelvis is out of alignment, it can lead to various issues ranging from lower back pain to premature labor. Prenatal chiropractic can help to realign your pelvis and restore balance, which may help improve comfort and reduce the risk of complications.
