Chiropractic for Pregnancy in Oakdale

pregnant mom holding tummyYour pregnancy should be a wonderful time in your life, exciting and full of joy as you bring a new person into the world. However, your body is undergoing a lot of changes. This can mean discomfort and even pain in your joints, neck, back, hips, and extremities as your body grows to accommodate your baby.

There is hope, however, and it can be found through chiropractic care during pregnancy. Adjustments have been shown to tremendously impact the overall health of Mom and Baby, with labor times shortened by about 30 percent.

How Do Misalignments Develop?

There are many benefits to receiving chiropractic care during your pregnancy. Having an optimally functioning nervous system allows your body to work as well as it possibly can throughout your pregnancy while enhancing the environment the baby is growing within as well.

As a mom moves further in pregnancy, with the load of the baby out in front, the pressure builds on the mother’s lower back, middle back, and pelvic area as the baby grows. This can easily throw a spine out of alignment.

As this occurs, the mother also begins to produce a hormone called relaxin, which loosens and relaxes ligaments, muscles, and joints to help your body stretch. This can encourage misalignments as your body loosens naturally to prepare for the birth.

Misalignments in the pelvis, sacrum, and tailbone are also often implicated in birthing difficulties. The pelvis and tailbone surround the birth canal. If there’s an irregularity there, it may be difficult to get the baby through the birth canal with ease, prolonging birth times.

Comfortable and Gentle Adjustments for You and Baby

Regular adjustments during pregnancy help counteract this tendency toward misalignment. Adjustments relieve pressure on the nerves, allow the uterus to work as efficiently as possible, and can reduce delivery times for moms who’ve had regular care.

At Parkview Chiropractic Clinic, we have adjustable tables for pregnant patients, allowing us to make room for the baby as the pregnancy progresses. They allow us to gently adjust you without putting any significant pressure on the baby while still getting great results.
