Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy!

Is it safe to see a chiropractor while pregnant?

This is a often asked question. Chiropractors specialize in treating the spine, which is the main avenue for the nervous system. The nervous system communicates with the rest of the body: its organs, systems, everything. When the nervous system is healthy, so is the rest of your body. If it is important for any person to maintain healthy bodily functions, it is paramount that one who is pregnant do the same.

Above all, chiropractors train extensively in attending pregnant women as well as infants. As medical professionals, they understand the stress the body is under. At Wilbanks Chiropractic we are particularly careful and empathetic to patients’ needs. We take a thorough analysis of each individual situation and performs the safest, effective adjustment on a one-by-one basis.

Not only is it safe to see a chiropractor while pregnant, in many cases, it is important that you do.

How the body changes during pregnancy

If you are or ever have been pregnant, you are well aware of the discomfort that comes with it. Swelling feet, nausea, and back pain are just a few of the many pains. The latter of these three is especially relevant to why it is important to see a chiropractor during your pregnancy. As the fetus grows, the abdomen protrudes and the back curve becomes more pronounced. This comes with not only the characteristic back pain and abdominal discomfort, but you need to adapt your posture as well. Combined, this all leads to some serious potential spinal issues.

Additionally, during pregnancy, the pelvis changes and can become misaligned. Professionals refer to this as intrauterine constraint. If unchecked, this can lead to complications during birth, including a potential cesarean section.

There is no reason an already complicated and difficult nine months become more so. Seeing a chiropractor while pregnant has some extraordinary benefits to easing the process.

How chiropractic helps during pregnancy

The pros of recieving chiropractic care during your pregnancy are abundant. Overall, it promotes a healthier pregnancy. When everything is in line with each other, the complications reduce and everything goes much more smoothly. This leads to a reduction in the time of labor and delivery and promotes a natural non-invasive birth. (Read that as “no c-section.”)

Chiropractic care will streamline the long journey that is pregnancy. Receiving this care can control nausea as well as back and joint pain. And when it comes time for delivery, a chiropractor’s consistent care can place the baby in an optimal position.
