Backaches during pregnancy are almost commonly accepted as something that cannot be avoided and there is nothing a pregnant mother can do about it. However, during my weekly visits to my trusted chiropractor and I chanced upon an article that I read in the waiting room that proved otherwise.
Before I began my chiropractic sessions, I always thought that chiropractors are the people who twist and crack your back until you cry for your mummy. This couldn’t be further away from the truth! In fact, chiropractic is a rather painless process and there are many techniques involved suited for different individuals. A good chiropractor will understand the patient first before beginning any form of therapy.
Before I talked to The Chiropractic Clinic on publishing this article, I did my fair bit of research online and from multiple sources to see if chiropractic is suitable for pregnant women. I definitely do not want to publish any content that is unverified and not useful, and so I’m happy to report that this are all legit and useful information. So, read on!
With the permission of the clinic, I’m sharing the article shared to me by The Chiropractic Clinic. I hope that this will benefit you as a pregnant mother to rid yourself of backaches and moving towards an easier labor.
Our main purpose with helping pregnant women happens to be a bit different than for non-pregnant patients. Quite simply, we serve to help a woman’s body adjust to the changes it makes to house a growing baby. Our main goal happens to be to lessen the pains of being pregnant and to help your pelvis section remain even and optimized for your baby’s birthday.
Your pregnancy happens to be a time of good change within…and without. As your little baby grows and develops your body morphs to the growing baby inside you: your breasts become bigger to prepare for breastfeeding, the curve in your low back increases as your belly becomes larger in size, and your head tends to move forward to maintain itself over your toes. Yes, these changes do not sound totally nice; they are the changes necessary to keep a woman able to move around over the course of her pregnancy. Undergoing Chiropractic Care should help make pregnancy a healthy & comfortable thing.
The good news happens to be that you are in the exact place to help your body adapt to this ongoing change. Chiropractic treatments let the vertebrae in your sacrum & your spine move more fluidly and help you to be more comfortable sitting, sleeping, standing, and taking a walk. Benefits such as these are extremely valuable to pregnant women primarily in their final trimester due to the fact at that point, walking around could become challenging.
1 of the benefits is that women who have regular treatments prior to birth & labor experience shorter labour times. As a whole, 1st time mothers who happened to be treated during their pregnancies had 25% shorter labours than women who weren’t under a chiropractor’s care. Ladies who had prior children and were under chiropractic care experienced 33% shorter labours than women who weren’t seeing a chiropractor during their pregnancies.
Chiropractic treatments turn out to be effective & safe while you’re pregnant. Chiropractors take extra precaution to be certain that pregnant women are comfortable, and all of our treatments are focused on the spine, rather than the abdomen. Most pregnant women are in awe as to simply how incredible chiropractic treatments feel!
