Pregnancy is such a monumental time filled with joy, excitement and love! During this time of excitement, the body is changing quickly each and every day. Chiropractic care can offer you the gentle support you need during this journey, and here are some great benefits regarding pregnancy and chiropractic care!
Chiropractic care can allow you to have a more comfortable pregnancy!
Your body is changing so quickly and as baby grows, your center of gravity begins to shift forward. This can lead to postural changes – such as an arched lower back and rounded shoulders. These postural changes can lead to discomfort and tension. But, with gentle and effective chiropractic adjustments, improved posture and relief can easily be achieved.
Chiropractic care may allow for an easier birth!
With your baby growing, a lot of pressure can be placed on your spine and lower back. Pelvic and sacral misalignments can create tension in not only the lower spine, but also the muscles around the hips and uterus. Balancing your pelvis and these muscles may allow baby to be in a better position, which in turn, may make for an easier labor and birth!
Make sure your chiropractor is Webster certified!
Not all chiropractors are created equal when it comes to pregnancy. Webster Technique is a pregnancy-specific technique that some chiropractors train and specialize in. Dr. Erica is certified in this pregnancy-specific technique, which is focused on providing balance and alignment to your spine.
