During pregnancy, a woman’s body goes through endocrinological and physiological changes to create an environment for the developing baby. A pregnant woman may experience pelvic and postural changes and an increased back curve. The baby may have trouble getting into the best position for delivery if the pelvis is misaligned. That is why it is so important for women to seek chiropractic treatment during pregnancy. Our team here at Advanced Back Pain & Injury Center in Phoenix is here to help your body stay in the best condition for you and your growing baby.
What Happens to The Body During Pregnancy
As the baby grows in the womb, the weight puts pressure on several areas of the body. Additionally, the ligaments relax more, making it possible for the baby to move through the birth canal. This leads to a more curved spine, pelvic changes, and uneven weight distribution. These are some of the biggest reasons for back pain, neck pain, and injuries during pregnancy. There is also the possibility of long deliveries and breech birth.
How a Chiropractor Can Help
Our chiropractors are skilled in carrying out treatments specifically designed to help maintain the health and wellness of the spine, discs, nerves, and joints. Our treatments can help relieve lower back pain, neck pain, sciatica, and other conditions that may occur during pregnancy.
Prenatal chiropractic care can also help control nausea, improve quality of sleep, and maintain an overall comfortable pregnancy. Additionally, our chiropractors can help a baby in the breech position get into a proper position for birth using the Webster technique.
Is Prenatal Chiropractic Care Safe?
Prenatal chiropractic care is safe for most pregnant women. However, you should always check with your OB to see if it is right for you and your child. We provide the torque release technique as a way to help our pregnant patients with pain and muscle tension. TRT is gentle and non-invasive, making it one of the safest techniques for pregnancy and children. TRT is a very targeted approach that focuses on the nervous system and provides spinal manipulation without the cracks and pops associated with chiropractor visits.
