What is Prenatal Chiropractic Treatment?
Prenatal chiropractic is the name for a group of services our chiropractor offers to pregnant patients. They address the series of alterations the body of a pregnant woman begins to undergo as soon as conception occurs.
Many patients are surprised at the pain and other discomfort they suffer from changes in their back, pelvis, and posture. Chiropractic services correct misalignments of spinal components to reduce pressure on nerves and create an atmosphere of whole-body health. They also correct pelvic alignment and balance throughout the pregnancy.
Prenatal treatment is safe for pregnant patients and their developing children. Chiropractors who provide it receive specialized training to work with pregnant women. Many use special adjustable tables that accommodate the body when pregnant and prescribe special stretches and exercises. Treatment includes techniques that avoid any unnecessary pressure on the abdomen.
Chiropractic care during pregnancy goes beyond regular chiropractic treatment. It takes into consideration the changes in physiology and endocrinology that occur in pregnant women and how they cause spinal or joint misalignment.
Our chiropractor cites a number of potential benefits of prenatal chiropractic care:
- Fostering a healthier overall pregnancy
- Reducing labor and delivery time
- Preventing potential Caesarean sections
- Controlling nausea
- Relieving joint, neck, and/or back pain
- Providing patient education on nutrition and home care
- Checking postpartum recovery of pelvic ligaments
Chiropractors provide prenatal patients with customized home care recommendations for exercises and gentle stretches. According to our doctor of chiropractic, one research study indicated that patients receiving prenatal treatment experienced labor times decreased by 24 to 39 percent.
Prenatal treatment plans usually include joint mobilization, therapeutic exercise, and soft tissue therapy. Each plan takes into consideration challenges such as increased weight and loosening ligaments as the pregnancy advances.
