Pregnancy and Chiropractic

Posted: August 27, 2015

Did you know that chiropractic is great for pregnant women?  Being under chiropractic care during your pregnancy is one of the greatest things mothers can do for themselves and their baby.

During pregnancy mothers are told to eat right, take their vitamins, get plenty of rest, and to exercise.  All of these things are important because your body is in the process of making a baby.  Since your body is doing so many things it is important to make sure that it is functioning at its highest level.  That is where chiropractic comes in.  A scientific specific chiropractic adjustment removes interference to the mother’s nervous system.  This allows her brain and body communicate better to improve baby development and uterine function.

Also, a woman’s body goes through many changes during pregnancy with the hormonal changes and increased body weight. Chiropractic adjustments align the spine and the pelvis to relieve discomfort in the low back and other aches and pains associated with being pregnant.  This helps to relieve tension on the muscles and ligaments of the spine and pelvis and allows for better positioning for the baby.  Proper alignment of the spine and pelvis will also help to improve the labor and delivery.

If you are pregnant, or know someone in the Kernersville, Winston Salem, Walkertown, Greensboro, or High Point areas, who is pregnant.  Please call our office today at 336-907-752 to make an appointment and find out the benefits of care for you and your baby.
