Chiropractic care during pregnancy; frequently asked questions…
Is Chiropractic care during pregnancy safe?
Yes. There are no known reasons or contradictions to suggest otherwise. Although some chiropractors may take a special interest in pregnancy, all chiropractors are trained to work with pregnant women.
Why should I have chiropractic care throughout my pregnancy?
Throughout pregnancy, the female body changes to create an environment for the developing baby and these physical and hormonal changes can cause the spine and joints to move and misalign.
Pelvic alignment is essential for the baby’s development and is a common reason as to why pregnant women seek chiropractic care. When the pelvis is not aligned correctly, the amount of room available for the developing baby is reduced. An aligned pelvis creates the ideal environment for the baby to move into the best possible position for delivery.
Remember – the nervous system is the main communication system to all of the body’s systems. A healthy spine and regular adjustments allow the nervous system to function at its optimum, allowing the entire body to work effectively and efficiently.
