Prenatal & Pediatric Chiropractic Care
Prenatal Chiropractic Care
Congratulations, on your pregnancy! Becoming a mother is a life event like no other and we are here to support you and your family all the way! Your Chiropractic care is designed to enhance your well-being and improve the birth outcome, giving you and your baby an optimal beginning.
Why is Prenatal Chiropractic Care Important?
The expectant mother's spine and pelvis undergo many changes to accommodate for the growing baby. According to Williams Obstetrics, "Any contraction of the pelvic diameter that diminishes the capacity of the pelvis can create dystocia (difficulty) during labor." Additionally, the increase in circulating progesterone, estrogen, and relaxin lends to pelvic hypermobility and sacral displacement. Chiropractors define this displacement/dysfunction as spinal misalignment or subluxation.
Great News for Expectant Mothers!
The benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy extend far beyond treating pain. Specific chiropractic care relieves pain and enhances nervous system function thereby enhancing the many structural and physiological processes necessary for birth.
Our Chiropractic care has been shown to:
- Correct spinal, sacral and pelvic misalignments.
- Diminish musculoskeletal and pregnancy related conditions.
- Reduce Breech Birth presentations.
- Diminish post-partum pain and recovery time.
