Chiropractic care is an excellent and proven means of responding to injury and discomfort following car accidents, falls, sports related injuries, and many other kinds of injuries that affect our bodies. Less well known is the fact that chiropractic care is also an excellent way to relieve much of the pain and discomfort caused by pregnancy. Pregnancy ushers in some obvious, expected, and normal changes to a woman’s body. Weight gain and belly expansion are likely the best known of these changes. Other biological changes also occur in a pregnant woman’s body, and Caron Chiropractic can help with all of them and help you feel strong and ready for your delivery.
Expansion of the belly is often accompanied by an increased curvature of your spine. This occurs to accommodate the growth of the belly and can have an impact on a pregnant woman’s posture. The pelvis also undergoes changes in preparation for the birthing process, further complicating the changes to the woman’s posture. Each of these changes can create misalignment of the spine, which can in turn result in lower back pain and even severe muscle spasms.
Pregnancy can also disrupt sleep patterns, resulting in increased stress as the pregnant woman prepares for giving birth. As the pregnant woman’s belly grows with her baby inside, finding comfort while trying to sleep can become even more challenging. The rapid changes that occur in her body can cause her to lie differently on her pillow. It is not uncommon for pregnant women to complain of neck pain, which is of course also related to spinal alignment. All of these issues can be safely and effectively treated by the staff at Caron Chiropractic.
Relieve Discomfort During Pregnancy
Chiropractic adjustments are a non-invasive way to help realign the spine. If you are pregnant and you are experiencing lower, mid, or upper back pain, a chiropractic adjustment is a great first step toward relieving that back pain. When the spine is in need of realignment, the muscles that support the spine are often a source of pain because of the added stress they are under while supporting the misaligned spine. Massage therapy is another excellent way of relieving the stress of those muscles, and it is a great way to relieve and/or prevent muscle spasms.
The miracles of pregnancy largely speak for themselves. Those miracles can be experienced and enjoyed more fully with chiropractic treatment. If you are pregnant, or even if you are considering becoming pregnant, Caron Chiropractic can help prepare you and your body for the changes that accompany pregnancy.
