What are the benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy?
There are many different reasons why women chose to visit a chiropractor during their pregnancy. About half of all expectant mothers will develop low back pain at some point during their pregnancy.
The growth of the baby in your abdomen results in numerous biomechanical, and postural changes, resulting in increased pressure on the joints in your low back, and increased tension in the low back muscles.
The care your chiropractor will provide during pregnancy is gentle, and techniques are used that avoid unneeded pressure on the abdomen. By releasing tension in tight muscles, and mobilizing restricted spinal joints, pregnancy-related back pain can be decreased.
