Why are Prenatal Adjustments Needed?
Misalignment is common during pregnancy for a few reasons. Relaxin causes your muscles and ligaments to relax, which prepares the body for birth. It also makes misalignments more likely.
As your body grows, you carry more weight in your belly. This can affect your balance, and put more pressure on your back and hips. The extra weight of pregnancy can also cause misalignments.
Misalignments lead to pain and other pregnancy symptoms. They can also affect your body’s balance and increase your risk of injuries.
The Potential Benefits of Prenatal Chiropractic Adjustments
There are several potential benefits of prenatal chiropractic adjustments. They can help correct misalignments, which can relieve many symptoms common in pregnancy, including leg pain, back pain, and headaches. It might also be great for pregnancy nausea, often called morning sickness.
Techniques the May Be Used during a Prenatal Chiropractic Adjustment
A chiropractor on our chiropractic care team uses gentle techniques that are safe during pregnancy.
The adjustment might be done using a drop table. You’ll lay face down on the table and the table will be adjusted to accommodate your stomach. Pillows may be used to make you more comfortable if needed.
Our chiropractor might also check for tightness, and make any needed adjustments. We may also adjust other areas than the spine. Pregnant women often have upper back or neck pain. Adjustments can help relieve these types of pain.
