Chiropractic care has many benefits. By realigning the spine, chiropractors bring relief to a variety of areas throughout the body, including the neck, back and head. Pregnancy puts stress on the entire body and can create symptoms that make everything from walking to even breathing difficult. Prenatal chiro may be able to ease the pain and discomfort of pregnancy, but is it safe? Here, we take a look.
Benefits of Prenatal Chiro Care
The body goes through a miraculous—and sometimes arduous—change when a baby is growing inside of it. Along with physical transformations, the body undergoes hormonal changes. Over time, they can result in an increased back curve due to a protruding abdomen, pelvic problems and posture issues. Add to that the usual softening of joints in a pregnant body, and you can have acute pain. Fortunately, prenatal chiropractic care can help.
By using their hands to manipulate and adjust the spine, chiropractors can relieve a variety of painful symptoms, including headaches, rib misplacement, upper and lower back pain, pain that travels down the legs, hip discomfort and even nausea. Chiropractic treatment is also known to encourage the baby to change positions while in the womb, often turning breech babies and even helping reduce labor pains.
Is it Safe?
The idea of someone pushing on your back to adjust your spine may sound frightening and is often even more so for expecting mothers. Fortunately, however, prenatal chiro is thought to be safe. Chiropractors know the proper amount of pressure to apply to all of their patients, particularly those who are pregnant. However, those who are with child should seek the help of a chiropractor who specializes in prenatal adjustments.
Look for someone with post-graduate training in adjusting pregnant women. Also, ask around for recommendations. Calling a birthing center, even if you aren’t planning to use its services, may be helpful in providing a referral.
The most important factor, however, is your level of comfort. Talk to the chiropractor before and ask if they’ve treated pregnant women, and how often. Not every chiropractor is trained to or even feels comfortable adjusting expectant mothers, and you want to choose one who is.
