Pregnant and at the Chiropractor’s Office
During your pregnancy, things can get a bit tricky as your body is slowly preparing itself to get the baby out when the time is ready.
The hormones within your body are kicked into overdrive to help relax your ligaments to get the baby’s head down and out. Through this process, your spine and lower body are being subjected to many changes.
Chiropractic care can help ease the burden and help you feel better if you are in the midst of any pains that spring up. Chiropractors are able to relax your stressed ligaments, help you control morning sickness, and reduce the chances of premature delivery.
Before visiting your chiropractor, ensure that they have worked with pregnant women in the past and that they have a specialized table that keeps pressure off of the belly. Speak to your obstetrician/gynecologist to see if seeking treatment from a chiropractor is best for you.
