Pregnant women may reap the benefits of proper chiropractic care during pregnancy. Pregnancy produces not only changes in the body’s chemistry, pregnancy also stresses the body’s structure adding pains and pressures otherwise not experienced.
Chiropractic treatments can provide safe ways to rid a body of some of those aches and pains with no danger to the unborn child. The stresses and strains of pregnancy are caused by the physical changes and hormonal changes in a woman’s body.
The joints, ligaments and tendons all act and react differently with the added weight, tight spaces, and hormonal variances. Chiropractors may use specific techniques to eliminate or reduce pain. This relief is safe and effective and may aid in a the act of delivery.
