If you have ever been pregnant, then you probably agree with the statement that being pregnant changes a woman’s body. As your baby grows, so too will your belly. Some women gain a lot of weight when they are pregnant, while others gain little more than the weight of their baby. Weight gain, of course, is not the only change caused by pregnancy. Changes to the body’s structure occur in order to accommodate the little miracle growing inside of you, and Caron Chiropractic is ready to help you feel better as these changes occur.
The growing baby causes you to do such things as adjust your gait, sit differently and maybe for longer periods of time, and possibly reduce your physical activity. Each of these responses can decrease flexibility, which can in turn cause greater strain on the muscles of your abdomen, legs, back, and shoulders. The changes brought on by pregnancy also occur over a relatively short period of time, which means that your body is going through changes at a pace that is far more rapid than would be associated with virtually any other natural process. It is another reason why pregnancy is such an amazing process.
Chiropractic Treatment During Pregnancy
As you experience those changes, you may be tempted to believe that the aches and pains of pregnancy are normal, that every woman who has ever been pregnant has experienced them, and that there is little or nothing that can or should be done to alleviate those aches and pains. When it comes time for you to actually give birth to your baby, we believe you should feel physically ready, and we can help you achieve exactly that.
Chiropractic Care And Pregnancy
The care that we can provide you during pregnancy–by means of specialized chiropractic adjustment, massage therapy, stretching and flexibility exercises, and even acupuncture–can make the experience of giving birth easier than it would be if your body is tense and out of alignment. By spending time with us during your pregnancy, we can help to ensure that the muscle groups that support the unique condition of being pregnant are strong, limber, and prepared for the stamina required for birthing a child.
Caron Chiropractic understands the changes that occur in a woman’s body during the course of her pregnancy, and we apply our vast knowledge of chiropractic care, massage therapy, and acupuncture to help you feel better during pregnancy and as you prepare to give birth.
