Chiropractic care while you’re pregnant is completely safe and highly effective.
The body undergoes a tremendous amount of changes internally and externally. There are hormonal changes that cause ligaments to soften and become lax allowing for the body to open up and allow for the baby to descend. But also as your posture changes so does the mechanical stress on the spine. The stress on the spine can cause pelvic, neck, shoulder, and upper back pain, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, and headaches.
Chiropractic care is a huge help!
Here at Premier Chiropractic Center, I adjust patients all the way through the pregnancy and even after delivery. Very little pressure is needed and we alternative ways to evaluate and adjust you while you are pregnant.
We also provide Massage Therapy and give great tips on strengthening the pelvic floor to resist further problems. Chiropractic care helps with the brain-body connection of Neuromuscular harmony that allows the nervous tissue to communicate optimally with the uterus/cervix to make sure they both are working together rather than against one another for easier vaginal births.
And how do we know of all this? Three children of my own and 18 years of experience providing excellent care for my family and friends here in the office, training and continuing education.
