Pregnancy and Chiropractic
Chiropractic is not only safe during pregnancy, it is highly recommended! Proper spinal alignment allows for proper function. The body's ligaments become increasingly relaxed as the due date approaches. This ligament laxity combined with the extra weight can cause misalignment and chiropractic subluxation.
Expecting mothers go through many physical, hormonal, and emotional changes during the nine months of pregnancy. These changes work in a natural symphony that is orchestrated by the nervous system. Chiropractic treatment can ease the body from many of the pains and problems that can arise along the journey. A great rule to remember: what is good for the goose is good for the gander. The many benefits of chiropractic care that mom receives also indirectly helps the baby grow and develop properly.
