Pregnancy Chiropractic at Sowers Chiropractic Center

Pregnant woman with hands on bellyWe want our bodies to function at as high a level as possible at all times. This becomes even more important during pregnancy. The first question everyone has concerning chiropractic care during pregnancy is “How safe is it?” Not only is it incredibly safe, but it’s effective, gentle, and best of all-completely natural.

Chiropractic care helps mom feel more comfortable as her body adapts to accommodate her growing baby. Weight gain and hormonal changes put additional stress on the body which can affect her spinal health and cause problems for both mom and the baby.

What to Expect

Getting to know each patient is very important. During your first visit, we do a thorough exam. We also ask about your pregnancy goals, such as natural childbirth.

After a thorough physical, we discuss your care plan, which varies according to your needs.

How Does it Help Me?

During pregnancy, a woman’s body produces extra hormones. One of them is Relaxin, which loosens the ligaments surrounding the pelvis to make delivery easier. Since these same ligaments provide support, misalignments can occur.

Chiropractic adjustment ensures everything is properly aligned and functioning without restrictions. Better pelvis and spine movement typically make the labor and delivery process shorter and less painful.

Moms tell us there’s a big difference with a chiropractic delivery.

Some benefits our patients have seen with chiropractic care include:

  • Keeps wellness levels high – when your body is in alignment and functioning properly, optimum wellness is possible.
  • Relieves back, neck and joint pain – carrying around the extra weight of the baby puts a strain on mom’s skeletal system. Inevitably, the new weight gets distributed unevenly causing low back pain, hip pain, etc.
  • Encourages baby to move from breech position – Breech deliveries cause difficulties for both the mother and baby. Chiropractic can help create an environment which encourages the baby to move into proper position.
  • Shorter labor and delivery – when mom’s body is in balance, joints and ligaments are relaxed. Labor and delivery may be quicker and less painful. Many moms have noted how much easier delivering while under chiropractic care.
  • Faster post-partum recovery – all these pelvic changes make walking, sitting and sleeping uncomfortable. Add in the new stresses on your body of holding your new baby, nursing, and carrying around the loaded diaper bag, no wonder you hurt! Chiropractic care can help ease your discomfort and get you back to feeling your best.
