Chiropractic care can help relieve pain
As much as people dislike it and want to stay far away from it, pain is a part of life. Just about everyone experiences discomfort and irritation in the body to some degree at one time or another. Bearing a child can cause physical pain and other symptoms that can be much worse than everyday aches and pains. That is where our team comes in.
With chiropractic treatment, we can help to ease the pain and physical strain pregnancy places on the body. Along with that, we can recommend stretches and techniques to help prepare the mother's body for delivery.
Some of the most common places for these unwanted feelings occur in the joints. Our chiropractor can address pain in the:
- Headaches and migraines
Benefits of chiropractic birth preparation
Women can experience agonizing pain and discomforts throughout the duration of pregnancy. As an expectant woman prepares for delivery, her body and hormones will change. Her center of gravity will change, putting pressure on the back and other parts of the lower body.
The curvature of a pregnant woman’s back may increase as well. Pelvic pain is another typical issue that pregnant women face. As a chiropractor, we can provide relief during pregnancy as the delivery date approaches by adjusting the spine, realigning joints properly and promoting sound balance. Our chiropractic work can benefit the developing baby as well.
Women may also have shorter labor because of regular visits to the chiropractor. Since each patient has their own set of needs and concerns, our team will customize a unique treatment plan.
Helping with birth preparation
As the months go by and the delivery date grows closer, the expectant mother needs to care for her developing baby. One of the biggest challenges pregnant women face at this point is not having much room for the baby inside. We can also recommend treatment to help with pelvic balance. Through adjustments and other techniques, our team can increase the space for the baby.
These adjustments can help avoid problems with the delivery, such as the need to have a C-section. A misaligned spine and pelvis bring other troubling consequences for a pregnant woman. The misalignment will put stress on the patient and could even impair the nervous system.
The effects of this on the baby could be disastrous. As a chiropractor, Dr. Jane Macris, DC can help to improve the mother’s function and health. Better wellness for the mother can lead to improvements in the baby’s development and growth, as well.
Many pregnant women wonder whether chiropractic care is right for birth preparation. We strive to help expectant mothers feel comfortable when they see us during appointments from pregnancy up until labor and delivery. Even postnatal patients can benefit from manipulations and therapy. Prospective patients should consult their OBGYN before going to a chiropractor, as there are some instances where it would be better to postpone this treatment.
At the initial visit with our chiropractor, patients discuss their concerns and condition. A team member will take X-rays and go through a health questionnaire with the patient. Our chiropractor will decide how many visits the patient should make and what treatments will likely help the most.
We will make any necessary modifications to the treatment. These may include using a cushion underneath the patient on the table, adjusting the height of the table and applying less pressure during adjustments.
