Pregnancy is often one of the happiest times in a woman’s life, but can be difficult to achieve, and even for those who do, it can be a stressful and difficult time. Chiropractic is an ideal means for alleviating the pain and discomfort of many pregnancy symptoms and complications.
Chiropractic During Pregnancy
During pregnancy, a routine of regular and consistent chiropractic care can improve your coordination, flexibility, strength and balance. This can all ease the physical burden of carrying the baby, and make for a more pleasant pregnancy experience. Keeping your spine properly aligned can also maintain optimal nervous system function, which can help to alleviate the aches, swelling, pain and even morning sickness associated with pregnancy.
Mothers who maintain a chiropractic regimen during pregnancy often find that their experience in labor is less difficult, their contractions reliably timed and the delivery easier and shorter than those who do not.
Then, following the birth, chiropractic adjustment can help to correct distortion of the pelvis and restore energy and healthy body function in the long term.
Chiropractic for Newborn Children
We don’t often think about how traumatic it is to be born, but babies experience any number of physical complications during the process of entering the world. Many of these arise from spinal misalignment, including difficulty with breastfeeding, asthma, colic, digestive problems and even behavioral issues which result from pain, discomfort and sub-optimal nervous response.
Pediatric chiropractic care can improve your child’s functions, helping to improve mobility, digestion and even increase immune system responsiveness. This is done through correcting spinal misalignments which increase nerve system function and communication, and can reduce the risk for illness and infant health disorders.
