Chiropractic During Pregnancy
During pregnancy, a routine of regular and consistent chiropractic care can improve your coordination, flexibility, strength and balance. This can all ease the physical burden of carrying the baby, and make for a more pleasant pregnancy experience. Keeping your spine properly aligned can also maintain optimal nervous system functioning, which can help to alleviate the aches, swelling, pain and even morning sickness associated with pregnancy.
Mothers who maintain a chiropractic regimen during pregnancy often find that their experience in labor is less difficult, their contractions reliably timed and the delivery easier and shorter than those who do not visit their local chiropractor.
Then, following the birth, chiropractic adjustment can help to correct distortion of the pelvis and restore energy and healthy body function in the long term.
