Can Expecting Mothers Receive Chiropractic Care?
Indeed, they can. There is no evidence that chiropractic care has ever
harmed an expecting mother or her unborn child, though there are plenty
of women who have benefitted from a chiropractor’s help in resolving
back pain during pregnancy. By gently adjusting your spine, a chiropractor
can help reduce pressure, realign your vertebrae, preserve your range
of motion, and help you experience a more pleasant pregnancy.
In addition to pain relief, chiropractic care is also thought to provide
other great benefits for expecting mothers. Many pregnant women have attributed
reduced nausea to chiropractic care. It is also thought to play an important
role in preparing the body for birth, to the point of reducing labor and
delivery time and preventing the necessity of a C-section.
