Many pregnant women have found that chiropractic adjustments provide relief from the increased low-back pain brought on by pregnancy. Chiropractic adjustments are safe for the pregnant woman and her baby and can be especially appealing to those who are trying to avoid medications in treating their back pain. Doctors of chiropractic can also offer nutrition, ergonomic, and exercise advice to help a woman enjoy a healthy pregnancy.
Chiropractic adjustments throughout pregnancy can help maintain balance in your pelvic muscles and ligaments leading to an easier delivery for the pregnant women and her baby.
Chiropractic care can also help after childbirth. In the eight weeks following labor and delivery, the ligaments that loosened during pregnancy begin to tighten and can lead to discomfort. Chiropractic Care can help rebalance the pelvic joints and ligaments during this time.
