PREGNANCY & CHIROPRACTIC CARE
At first, most people don't see the connection between chiropractice and pregnancy. However, there are 4 stages in which having an optimally working nervous system can benefit both mother and child. Many pregnant patients usually report shorter, more pleasant deliveries once they get chiropractic care.
Chiropractice makes your body become a strong, supple and balanced vessel to hold the pregnancy.
Frequent chiropractice during pregnancy appeals to mothers who look for a natural method to higher health.
Labor and Birth
A lot of people depend on chiropractic care to aid and ensure ideal biomechanics of the hips and spine hoping to reduce the requirement for interventions throughout the childbirth process.
Natural births can stress a baby's spine. Breastfeeding problems can easily arise in case the baby has a subluxation and is not able to easily turn it's head to one side.
We use special approaches to make our adjustments safe and comfortable for you and your child.
Frequently Asked Questions:
No. This might be a popular concern among parents who mistakenly think their child will get adjustments like the ones they receive. Not only are adjusting strategies modified for each person's size and unique spinal issue, a child's spine rarely has the long-standing muscle tightness seen in adults. This will make the energy required to adjust a child’s spine is quite less than an adult’s.
No. Only the spinal joints that are rigid will receive adjustments. This allows weakened muscles and ligaments to stabilize and heal.
Pregnancy is natural. Why do I need chiropractic?
Birthing is a natural phenomenon. It’s what we’ve done to the birth process that has become increasingly suspect. The birth process, even under natural and controlled conditions, is potentially traumatic. During the pushing stage of labor, the spine, and mainly the neck may be injured as the baby is compressed and pushed down the birth canal. Chiropractic does not try to stimulate or inhibit normal body function. Instead, the chiropractor addresses the important relationship between the nervous system and corrects the spine and nerves to ensure a safe delivery.
Will my medical doctor approve?
First, you do not need anyone's approval to seek a chiropractic opinion about health issues affecting your child or infant. The judgment of some other health care expert is often helpful in the decision-making process. Practitioners sustaining with the latest pediatric chiropractic research are beginning to learn the value of this normal, drug-free approach to improved health.
What does my spine have to do with my baby?
Pregnancy may be among the best times to obtain chiropractic care! While it’s always advantageous to get a well-working nervous-system, it is especially useful now. Both mother and baby can benefit. Adjusting methods are used to a mother's size, condition, and weight. Throughout this time of weight gain and hormonal changes, most mothers seek chiropractic-care. Many report easier and shorter births.
