Chiropractic and Pregnancy

Pregnancy puts a lot of stress on a woman’s joints. (Now I know first hand!) It’s very important that a pregnant woman still receives chiropractic care to relieve the discomfort that she experiences.   

Relaxin

A hormone called Relaxin is released in the first trimester and beyond to make the pelvis more flexible for the upcoming childbirth. As a result, some women will experience, back, knee or foot pain as all of the joints in general increase in laxity.  Strengthening the core muscles will help to prevent muscular imbalances.

Regular Adjustments

Receiving regular chiropractic treatment will help to release tension in the mid back and neck  that’s created from postural changes and growing breasts and can also help to relieve pelvic pain that is the result of the instability that’s caused by the hormone relaxin.

It’s all about you!

If you are expecting, take care of your body. It will help you in the long run as you take care of your child! If you know someone who is expecting, spread the word about how chiropractic can help her have an optimal pregnancy experience.
