Chiropractic care is wonderfully versatile and works for a variety of patients. While many people associate chiropractic care as a solution for neck injuries or back pain, most people do not realize that chiropractic care is also the perfect complement to prenatal (and postnatal) care. In fact, many pregnant women have found relief and peace right here in our offices.
Pregnant women are working hard to manage new aches, pains, stretching skin and all sorts of strange symptoms that accompany pregnancy. Chiropractic care focuses on Mama, using holistic care techniques that keep her and Baby as healthy as possible.
As pregnant mothers watch their bellies grow, most begin to experience serious lower back pain and tingling legs. This pain, thanks to a compressed sciatic nerve, is common for pregnancies and can be nearly unbearable if left untreated. When Mama chooses to work with Select Health Chiropractic, we are able to offer adjustments that offer short-term and long-term relief from pain.
General Aches and Pains
It isn’t just the lower back that can offer trouble to pregnant mothers. There are general aches and pains, as well as tightness, that can appear during all three trimesters. At Select Health Chiropractic,we use a combination of adjustments, massage, and other therapies to keep Mama feeling great. We aim to keep pregnant mothers as active as possible, and eliminating aches and pains can keep our patients on track.
Morning sickness is a common symptom of early pregnancy, and some mothers can experience nausea throughout the pregnancy. At Select Health Chiropractic, we use nutritional guidance as well as adjustments to alleviate these unpleasant symptoms while ensuring Baby is getting the nutrients he needs to develop properly.
Finally, as the last trimester arrives, pregnant mothers begin to prepare for labor in earnest. Chiropractic care can help Baby get into correct position, as well as prepare Mama’s hips and body for the birth ahead.
If you or your partner is pregnant, we would love to work with you throughout (and after) your pregnancy. Give us a call to learn more about our services and how they could benefit you.
