Pregnant mothers may be wondering if visiting a chiropractor is safe. At QualCare Rehabilitation and Allied Medical Centers, we offer chiropractic treatments meant to help alleviate your pain, especially if you are experiencing unbearable pain and discomfort during your pregnancy. Mothers can enjoy the benefits of chiropractic care as it is completely safe and offers numerous benefits.
If you have already experienced strain or stress to your back or shoulders, pregnancy might only intensify the pain and even aggravate any pre-existing conditions. It may be worthwhile to speak with one of our Houston chiropractors to assess for any misalignments, pinched nerves, or dysfunctions to the areas of the body that may make your pregnancy more painful, such as the pelvic region.
Body Changes During Pregnancy
The body changes drastically during pregnancy. A woman will begin carrying more weight in her belly, placing strain on other parts of the body to support the baby’s weight, including the lower back and the shoulders. These areas may be pulled in another direction or tilted forward, in positions where they had not been before. The body also begins producing hormones that loosen many of the tissues.
As this is a time of changes in the body, you may periodically notice an imbalance in the pelvis and other parts of your body. We can help ensure that your body is balanced correctly. This can encourage the optimum positioning and space for the baby’s delivery. Once your baby has been delivered, chiropractic care may be useful to adjust to your body, as the pelvic region begins shifting again.
Trusted, Quality, Personalized Care
We have knowledgeable and experienced chiropractors who use safe adjustment techniques to relieve your pain. Because chiropractic care is a non-invasive form of treatment, your body is readjusted safely, and allow you a much better chance of feeling better and overcoming the; pain.
