When you find out you are pregnant, especially with your first, you want to do everything just right. You want to eat right, exercise right, lay in the right positions…Anything and everything that will help that baby is what you strive for. What some women may forget is that the best thing they can do while growing a precious human life is take care of themselves a little bit too! During pregnancy, your body goes through several physiological and endocrine changes. As your body grows and prepares for birth, you can become almost unrecognizable. So as your body rapidly changes, it’s important to take care of it. At Caron Chiropractic Clinic, we will work with you in keeping both you and the baby as happy and healthy as can be. Located in St. Paul, MN we are here to offer chiropractic services specifically designed for women who are expecting.
Is Chiropractic Care Safe During Pregnancy?
Not only is it safe, it is highly recommended! Our prenatal chiropractor in St. Paul is specifically trained in the physical changes that occur within a pregnant woman’s body. Pelvis changes, posture changes, increased back curvature due to a protruding abdomen, and even uterus enlargement and expandment of the uterus are all things that result in a misalignment of the spine or a joint. It is extremely important for the baby that these problems are corrected so that the baby may have room to grow. When a pelvis is misaligned, it can reduce the amount of room the baby has to develop. It also makes it very difficult for the baby to face head down for delivery. Additionally, misaligned spines can cause nervous system communication problems, thus creating issues for the rest of the body.
Chiropractic Benefits During Pregnancy
One of our favorite things to help correct is expecting mothers coming in for hyperemesis, uncontrolled vomiting. This problem, primarily present in the first trimester, can be miserable and on occasion, can occur throughout the entire pregnancy. Fortunately, Caron Chiropractic Clinic can help with this. Some of the benefits to chiropractic care during pregnancy include: maintaining the pregnancy, controlling vomiting, reduction of labor and delivery time, relief of back, neck, or joint pain, prevention of breech delivery and/or potential cesarean delivery.
