Chiropractic During Pregnancy
Pregnancy is a time of remarkable change in the body. Although these changes are natural, sometimes a little extra support along the way can help ease aches and pain and prevent other health concerns from developing. Aside from the obvious postural changes from increased pressure on the spine as the baby grows in the womb, millions of hormonal changes and chemical reactions take place, all controlled through the nervous system. During pregnancy, it is more important than ever to maintain a healthy spine and nervous system to adequately support the changing requirements in all parts of both your body and your growing baby. Chiropractic care is safe and effective during all stages of pregnancy when provided by a chiropractor that has been trained to work with pregnant women.
The benefits of chiropractic care can also extend beyond pregnancy. Many women report smoother and faster deliveries and faster recovery time post-partum and are overall in better health.
From pregnancy to birth, chiropractic can have positive benefits at any stage in children’s lives. Labor and delivery can be as traumatic on an infant as it is on a mother, setting the stage for the baby’s spine health which could his or her future.
Chiropractic care in children has also been shown to have positive results in treating common conditions like ear infections, headaches, and asthma. Some studies even show children who receive regular chiropractic care have stronger immune systems than children who don’t and are generally healthier. Chiropractic adjustments are completely safe for children when provided by a chiropractor trained in pediatrics.
