Pregnancy and Chiropractic - Questioned Answered
Constant structural changes, physical and emotional stresses provide the opportunity for beneficial chiropractic care during all stages of pregnancy.
Benefits of Chiropractic Care
Chiropractors specialize in the location, reduction and stabilization of the vertebral subluxation complex, which can be related to many of the uncomfortable symptoms associated with pregnancy and labor.
In addition to relieving the discomfort many expectant mothers experience, chiropractic care helps normalize nervous system function. This is an important component of overall good health.
The benefits of chiropractic care may also be noticed during delivery. Many chiropractic patients report their deliveries were faster and more comfortable than their deliveries prior to chiropractic care.
Regular chiropractic checkups, along with other healthy habits, create the best opportunity for a healthy, happy baby.
