Pregnancy and Chiropractic

Pregnancy is an exciting time in an expectant mother’s life. During the sweet nine months of waiting there are rapid postural changes due to the development of the fetus which can cause pain in the neck, low back and joints. These changes in the internal balance of the organs and general posture are further amplified by hormonal changes; in fact, to make the joints more elastic at the time of delivery, the body produces hormones that actually loosen the ligaments! So, during the last months of pregnancy, it is easy to suffer from aches and pains, especially in the lower back. An academic study in 2006 revealed that as many as 61% of women suffer from it.

Chiropractic adjustments (treatments) has shown not only to improve the mobility, posture and psychological conditions of pregnant women, but it also helps to facilitate labor, childbirth, and even post-delivery hospitalization and recovery! This is because adjustments help to balance the body in its physiological transformations, helping it to open up and relax.
