Pregnancy is both exciting and painful. As your little one grows inside the womb, excess weight and pressure are put on the lower back, leading to pain, discomfort, and – at times – conditions like compressed nerves and herniated discs. You want to relieve the pain and symptoms, but don’t want to do it in a way that might harm your baby. Prenatal chiropractic care is a great solution. Our team at Woodgrove Pines Wellness Clinic shares just a few reasons why below.
Every technique utilized in prenatal chiropractic care is non-invasive and substance-free. We utilize completely natural methods to encourage the body to do what it does best: heal and support you. Any methods used during pregnancy are gentle, don’t involve great amounts of force, and will not twist your body in a potentially harmful way.
One of the great things about chiropractic care is that it provides relief and doesn’t just cover it up for a while. Your chiropractor will determine the root cause of your pain, such as tension or misalignment, and work to address it. Once the source of pain has been eliminated, the pain will be significantly reduced.
Keep in mind, though, that until you give birth, your baby is still growing and moving inside of you. This can mean a new source of pain may appear. Regular visits with our chiropractors can ensure that any issues are addressed as soon as possible.
Prenatal chiropractic care is great for pregnancy-related pains, but there are other benefits. For example, women who visit a chiropractor during pregnancy have reported having shorter labor and delivery times, as well as a reduction in the need for a cesarean birth.
