As excited as people get about having a baby, pregnancy is filled with tons of discomfort as the mom-to-be's body goes through various changes. Most work closely with their doctor to get the prenatal care they need, but when symptoms come us such as nausea, back pain, and other body aches, or trouble sleeping arise, medication is not always an answer. At Mountain Spring Chiropractic Center, we have years of experience providing Fishersville, VA residents with natural and effective prenatal chiropractic care.
Staying Safe During Prenatal Chiropractic Care
When a chiropractor is trained, they learn to take special care when treating pregnant women. Some adjustments need to be modified, so it is important to let your chiropractor know that you are pregnant before beginning treatment to receive the most effective treatment possible. With regular treatment during pregnancy, overall spinal nerve stress is reduced, and a healthier state is maintained throughout the body.
How a Chiropractor Helps During Pregnancy
A lot of changes happen during pregnancy, and the result can be misalignment throughout the body. There may be balance issues due to pelvic changes, increased back curve due to a protruding abdomen, and postural adaptations that become necessary to limit discomfort. Our prenatal chiropractor can help with all of these things.
In many cases, chiropractors have not only helped with typical back and joint pain, but have helped reduce labor and delivery time, helped with stress management, and have even prevented the necessity of cesarean delivery by making sure the pelvis is not misaligned before labor. Because chiropractors are also skilled in wellness and lifestyle advice, they are also able to provide guidance and support when it comes to choosing safe ways to exercise, and tips on keeping up good nutritional habits that keep both the mom and baby healthy during pregnancy and after the baby is born.
Post Pregnancy Chiropractic Care
After giving birth, many women continue to visit their pregnancy chiropractor to correct misalignments and to help them get back into shape after the baby is born. Many bring the baby in to be checked as well to help them have a good start.
