Because women carry so much extra weight during pregnancy, back pain is a common symptom that women experience in their second and third trimesters. Visiting a chiropractor during your pregnancy can reduce the pressure on your spine and allow you to stay more comfortable as your body goes through the changes associated with pregnancy. Read on to discover why your chiropractor should be part of your care team while you are expecting.
Easing pregnancy symptoms
Not only can chiropractic adjustments reduce body aches and back pain during pregnancy, but they can improve circulation and reduce the chances of conditions such as spider veins in the lower body. As you continue to see a chiropractor, you can learn ways to stretch and exercise at home for more consistent relief from discomfort.
Safely reducing back pain
Many expecting mothers are concerned about the safety of their babies during visits to the chiropractor, but you can rest easy knowing that chiropractic care is safe and beneficial for both mother and child. Chiropractic care may reduce your need for medication to manage pain, which can pose complications in your pregnancy.
Ensuring a more comfortable delivery
There is an immediate payoff with prenatal chiropractic care as well as long-term benefits. Clinical studies have shown that chiropractic care can improve the experience of childbirth with a more comfortable delivery and reduced likelihood for breech births.
