Chiropractors can Relieve pregnancy pain!
The stress placed on a woman's body during pregnancy can lead to many complications that, while not life-threatening, cause discomfort or pain. In many cases, a chiropractors adjustment can alleviate pregnancy pain, decrease delivery time, and improve the babys position in-utero.
Anne Packard-Spicer, DC, a faculty clinician at Northwestern Health Sciences University, says a chiropractors adjustment can balance a womans spine and pelvis for normal functioning of the muscular and nervous systems. This allows better maternal body function, which will have a benefit to the baby.
When a womans pelvis is properly aligned, the uterus will be under less nerve and mechanical stress, which causes the baby to be in a more comfortable position during labor. Chiropractic adjustments can begin at any time and can continue all the way up to the day of delivery.
Many women worry about getting adjusted while they are pregnant, but chiropractic is gentle and very safe throughout pregnancy,says Packard-Spicer. There is no evidence that adjustments have ever harmed a pregnant woman or her baby. In my 12 years of experience, it is safe, gentle, and effective.
Pregnant women who are experiencing back or leg pain should be adjusted two-to-three times a week until their pain is stabilized.
After delivery, women should seek chiropractic care within the first 12 weeks. During pregnancy, the hormone relaxin circulates throughout the body, loosening the joints so that the pelvis can stretch open during delivery. After birth, the joints begin to tighten again. Checking for proper spinal alignment during this time may allow for the correction of chronic problems by allowing the spine to tighten in a normal alignment.
