An obvious reality about pregnancy is that it changes a woman’s body. What may be less obvious is that chiropractic care, when offered by a qualified professional who has received specific training, is a perfectly appropriate healthcare option for pregnant women to help relieve the stress and strain that a pregnancy can cause. Caron Chiropractic is pleased to offer chiropractic care for women who are pregnant. Chiropractic care has many benefits during pregnancy including maintaining a healthy pregnancy, controlling nausea and vomiting, reducing the length of labor and delivery and relieving back, neck and joint pain.
Chiropractic Care for Pregnant Women in MN
Pregnancy is at once a miraculous and completely natural and frequent occurrence. Based on how many babies are born every day, it may be tempting to consider pregnancy commonplace, if not for the miraculous nature of it. For every woman who has ever been pregnant, the changes to her body have been significant. Pregnancy can also take a significant toll on a woman’s body. For example, there are changes to the pelvis that occur during pregnancy, which can place pressure on the back, resulting in changes to posture and back pain. In addition, the protrusion of the belly as the baby grows also changes posture and can result in stress on the back.
Chiropractic care can help you do some things on your own that build on the treatment we provide. We can show you how to do a variety of exercises and specific stretching techniques that increase flexibility and maintain or build strength in anticipation of your giving birth. Exercise and stretching during pregnancy are good ways to prepare for the work of giving birth. If you are experiencing pain or discomfort that is related to your pregnancy, we will work with you to determine the best possible treatment plan.
Find Relief from Back, Neck and Joint Pain During Pregnancy
The changes that occur to your skeletal system during pregnancy not only cause physical discomfort or pain, but they can also make it more difficult to mentally prepare to give birth. Relieving the pain that you are experiencing, however severe it may be, can help you feel more energetic and better prepared for the birth of your child. Because everyone is unique, every treatment plan will look at least slightly different from every other. It is likely, however, that back, neck and joint pain associated with pregnancy could benefit from a combination of spinal adjustments and massage therapy. Our staff will work with you to identify the best combination of treatments to maximize your chiropractic experience and get you ready for the miracle of your baby’s arrival.
