The Connection Between Pregnancy and Chiropractic Care

Dec 21, 2016

Most of us understand that regular prenatal examination and maintaining a healthy diet are a significant part of a healthy pregnancy – but many people do not realize that receiving Chiropractic treatment in Atlanta is an excellent complement to prenatal care.

Chiropractic and Prenatal Care

Controlled and non-invasive, Chiropractic is a safe and reliable form of prenatal care that can offer the mother relief from pain during pregnancy, helps position the baby in utero, and also helps relieve postnatal pain.

Consider Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy

Women experience a tremendous amount of physiological and endocrinological changes during and after pregnancy.

As the body changes, the curve in the back increases, the abdomen extends outward; the ligaments become more flexible, and the pelvis adjusts, among other changes. Receiving frequent Chiropractic Adjustments is proven to help the body adapt to these changes, while also treating common musculoskeletal conditions.

A Chiropractor can also help in creating pelvic balance and alignment, which helps the baby get into an ideal position that’s conducive to a healthy delivery.

Other Benefits of Chiropractic Care for Pregnant Women

There are a plethora of advantages an expecting mother can experience by working with a Chiropractor to support her prenatal care team.

According to the American Pregnancy Association, Chiropractic care helps pregnant women:

  • Experience a safer pregnancy
  • Control and reduce nausea
  • Experience a faster labor and delivery process
  • Eliminate existing back, neck or joint pain
  • Reduce the chances of needing a cesarean delivery

After receiving a few Chiropractic Adjustments, most women report complete relief from low-back pain caused by pregnancy.

How Chiropractors’ Approach Breeched Babies

Webster’s Technique is a popular Chiropractic solutions that is performed with the goal of reducing the effects of sacral subluxation/SI joint dysfunction.

Results from a survey published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics reported an 82 percent success rate in reducing the musculoskeletal causes of intrauterine constraint (a reduction of space for the fetus to move) using Webster’s Technique.

Often intrauterine constraint results in breech positioning, which can lead to a caesarean section.
