Pregnancy & Chiropractic
Clairpointe Family Chiropractic offers chiropractic care for expecting mothers. When your body goes through the various stages and trials of pregnancy and labor, your spine is subjected to extreme amounts of stress.
After all, it has to constantly adjust itself to bear the growing weight of another person over a short time frame of just nine months. The center of gravity shifts forward, and substantial weight gain adds stress to the spine of the expecting mother.
This stress frequently causes lower back pain, headaches and migraines, nausea, insomnia, and other symptoms that can wreak havoc on your quality of life.
Over 50% of pregnant women complain of lower back pain during pregnancy, caused primarily by the weight that must be balanced by an overworked spine and support system. Furthermore, how smooth and uncomplicated your delivery is has a lot to do with the state of your body.
A body that is stressed, misaligned, and worn out can result in complications during delivery – resulting in anything from a painful delivery to problems with positioning the baby correctly.
Symptom of pregnancy that chiropractic care can help reduce:
- Relief from back, neck, or joint pain
- Helping with symptoms of nausea or heartburn
- Decreased Headaches or Migraines
The doctors at Clairpointe Family Chiropractic are licensed chiropractors who have received training related to pregnancy and have helped pregnant women pre and post-delivery.
