During pregnancy a woman’s pelvis is put under a lot of stress because of the additional weight in front causing a lot of pain on the lower back. There are several physiological and endocrinological changes to a woman’s body such as Protruding abdomen and increased back curve, Pelvic changes and Postural adaptations.
Making sure that the pelvic is well balanced is one of the most important things during pregnancy, not only to avoid pain but any misalignment in the pelvis might reduce the amount of room available for the developing baby. Adjusting the pelvic also helps getting the baby into the best possible position for delivery. Keeping the spine aligned helps the entire body work more effectively.
Chiropractic care during pregnancy can provide benefits for pregnant women by helping them maintain a healthier pregnancy, control symptoms of nausea, reduce the time of labor and delivery, relief back, neck or joint pain and prevent a potential cesarean delivery. Chiropractic care helps you to get your lower body in proper alignment for an easier birth. The chiropractor’s ability to realign and, in many cases, relax the ligaments and muscles in your pelvis has led to what is now known as the Webster Technique, a method that helps breech babies to turn themselves, naturally.
