Chiropractic care is a safe and a natural method to treat many of the common discomforts of pregnancy according to a study from PubMed. Keeping the spine free of misalignments allows the nerves to communicate with the rest of the body through the peripheral nervous system.. This is especially important at a time, during pregnancy, when many chemical and structural changes are happening. Keeping the pelvis in balance is important to allow your baby the proper position in the uterus.
As the mother’s weight and abdominal size increase, pressure on the spine may also increase. This may lead to low back, hip and neck pain. Many of these symptoms may be helped by chiropractic adjustments. According to a study published in the National Library of Medicine 75% of women experienced an increase of pregnancy related back pain as the pregnancy progresses.
