So many women who received chiropractic care during pregnancy say to us, “How in the world do other women get through pregnancy without adjustments?” – Carol Phillips, DC
If you are pregnant one of the best things you can do for yourself and your baby is see a doctor of chiropractic. Pregnant women are very prone to subluxations (spinal misalignments causing nerve interference) because hormonal changes can cause relaxation of ligaments and increased spinal instability. This can result in pain, spinal imbalance, weakness, fatigue, and breech presentations. Chiropractic care provides so many things a pregnant body needs: a flexible and balanced spine, hips and pelvis; internal organs without postural stress and freedom from nerve stress – all essential for a healthy pregnancy and delivery.
In short – along with a better diet, exercise and avoiding drugs, alcohol and cigarettes – chiropractic care should be an essential part of every pregnancy.
