Benefits of Chiropractic Care during Pregnancy
Expectant mothers know the pain and discomfort that pregnancy can cause. If you are living with pregnancy pains, you are not alone. However, there is a way to naturally manage and reduce symptoms associated with pregnancy. Lowery Chiropractic in Tallahassee uses prenatal chiropractic care to treat pregnancy pains. Here's what you can expect from chiropractic care during pregnancy.
One of the most important components of treatment for prenatal chiropractic care is ensuring that it is safe and comfortable. For many women, it is important to avoid surgery and medication while still getting pain management for pelvic and lower back pain. Our chiropractor can provide non-invasive pain relief while ensuring you do not have a serious recovery time ahead of you.
Often, pregnancy pain can be relieved with the help of some modifications to your routine. For example, some pregnant women see a reduction in swelling, even around the joints, when they exclude certain foods from their diet. Our chiropractor can also recommend ergonomics, orthotics, and other helpful tools you can use at home or at work to feel more comfortable.
Joint Pain Relief
Many people do not realize the impact pregnancy can have on the joints. Weight gain can lead to joint issues and spinal misalignments. Our chiropractor may use pregnancy-friendly adjustments to return proper function to your joints and other parts of your body, including the ankles, knees, and wrists.
Correct Muscle Imbalances
Often, the body experiences imbalances in tendons, ligaments, and muscles during pregnancy. Chiropractic care can help correct these imbalances by using hands-on adjustments to alleviate tension and inflammation in the body. You should also schedule an appointment with our prenatal chiropractor if you experience sciatica or back pain during your pregnancy.
Improve Labor and Delivery
An essential part of our prenatal care is helping pregnant women improve the chances of smooth labor and delivery. For some women, this may include trying techniques that encourage the baby to move out of the breech position. You will also learn breathing and positioning techniques that can ensure a smooth delivery process.
