Minnesota Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy
At Caron Chiropractic Clinic, P.A., we offer services that are specifically designed for pregnant women. Chiropractic care is perfectly safe during pregnancy when it is provided by a chiropractor that has been trained for pregnancy. Chiropractic care is an excellent tool to help keep the body properly aligned and provide the most optimal environment for a baby to develop. Caron Chiropractic will work with you to provide that optimal and healthy environment. We do this by providing you with exercises and stretches that are safe to use during pregnancy and compliment any adjustments made to your spine.
During pregnancy, there are several physiological and endocrinological changes that occur in preparation for creating the environment for the developing baby.
The following changes could result in a misaligned spine or joint:
- Protruding abdomen and increased back curve
- Pelvis changes
- Uterus enlarges and expands forward
- Posture changes
Keeping the pelvis properly balanced and aligned is a big reason to receive chiropractic care during pregnancy. A misaligned pelvis can reduce the amount of space that the developing baby has. A misaligned pelvis can also make it more difficult for the baby to get into the optimal position for delivery. The nervous system is the communication system for the entire body and that included the reproductive cycle. Keeping the spine properly aligned helps the entire body work more effectively.
Chiropractic care during pregnancy provides many benefits for pregnant women.
