What are the Benefits of Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy?
A question we are frequently asked at Wilbeck Chiropractic is, “What are the Benefits of Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy” the answer to this question is… There are many proven benefits of chiropractic care for both mother and child during pregnancy.
At Wilbeck Chiro we have a team of board-certified chiropractors who specialize in pregnancy and pediatric related care. Chiropractic care is an excellent way for expectant mothers to reduce stress, prepare the body for labor, and effectively treat neck, back, and pelvic pain safely and naturally, without putting unwanted stress on the body or relying on potentially harmful medication.
Below we will expand upon this question and explain in more detail the benefits of chiropractic care for expectant mothers, including natural pain relief treatments and how chiropractic care can prepare the body for childbirth.
How Do We Treat Pregnant Patients at Wilbeck Chiro?
Our pregnancy related treatments are like our normal adjustments, our front office team will take care of the paperwork and gather the proper insurance information, while you meet with one of our expert doctors to diagnose and discuss a treatment plan that’s right for you.
The goal of any adjustment is to relieve pressure and pain naturally while correcting the alignment of the spine. When treating or adjusting an expectant mother the main difference is that we want to focus more on the pelvic and lower back area.
When we treat an expectant mother we use a gentle technique known as the Webster technique that is safe for mother and child. We also utilize tools like an actuator and pregnancy pillows to reduce any extra stress that could be put on the body.
Treat Pregnancy Related Lower Back Pain Naturally
The most common pregnancy related pain symptoms we treat are lower back issues due to the added pressure or weight that is put on a mother as they carry a child to term. This added weight can cause the spine to pull back and compress, specifically around the lower back and pelvic region. Couple this with the body’s natural ability to produce a hormone called Relaxin and you have the potential for significant back pain or discomfort.
Relaxin is a reproductive hormone produced by the body that loosens and relaxes muscles, joints, and ligaments throughout a pregnancy to help the body stretch and prepare for childbirth. Relaxin isn’t a bad thing, but it can exacerbate pain symptoms if your spine is not in proper alignment.
Don’t live with lower pain during your pregnancy, find relief by treating it naturally and without the use of over-the-counter pain medication that could potentially harmful to your unborn child.
