At Caron Chiropractic Clinic, P.A., we offer a complete set of services specifically designed for women who are expecting a baby. Chiropractic care is perfectly safe during pregnancy when provided by a chiropractor that has been trained in the physical changes that occur within a pregnant woman’s body. We will work with you to make sure that the baby is provided with the optimal environment in which to develop. We’ll also provide 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
Establishing balance and alignment with the pelvis is another reason to receive chiropractic care during pregnancy. When the pelvis is misaligned it may reduce the amount of room available for the developing baby. A misaligned pelvis may also make it difficult for the baby to get into the best possible position for delivery. The nervous system is the communication system to the reproductive cycle along with all the other parts of the body. Keeping the spine aligned helps the entire body work more effectively.
Chiropractic care during pregnancy provides many benefits for pregnant women.
Benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy include:
- Maintaining the pregnancy
- Controlling vomiting
- Increased likelihood of full-term delivery
- Reduction in the time of labor and delivery
- Relief of back, neck or joint pain
- Prevent a potential cesarean section or vaginal breech delivery
If you are pregnant or plan to start a family in the near future, a consultation with one of the Doctors would be very beneficial. Please contact our office today for more information.
I was suffering back and leg pain when I was 5 months pregnant. My mom told me to see the Carons, but I was scared to try chiropractic. They were so professional and kind. They explained the care thoroughly and my pain was gone within two weeks. The adjustments in my third trimester helped me have a great delivery. Thanks.
