Chiropractic and Pregnancy
During pregnancy, a woman's body undergoes extraordinary changes, both psychological and physiological, and perfectly adapts, thanks to its innate intelligence, to create a new being.
The ovaries secrete a hormone called relaxin that helps joints become more flexible and elastic. This process allows the spine to become more flexible and prepares the pelvic ligaments for childbirth. This flexibility can cause misalignment of the articulations and trigger back pain and, quite frequently, cause sciatic nerve impingement. Other problems that often occur during pregnancy are headaches, nausea and cramps.
Another important factor to consider is that the cephalic fetal positioning must be correct to facilitate delivery. If the mother’s spine is not aligned, then the correct positioning of the baby may not occur, resulting in a cesarean.
Chiropractic care is the natural choice, it is non-invasive, drug-free and 100% safe for the health of the mother and fetus. The spinal adjustment releases the tension of the nerves and aligns the spine and pelvis, it optimizes the functioning of the body and facilitates the delivery for the mother and baby.
