Safety Benefits for You and Baby During Pregnancy
Chiropractic Care during pregnancy helps you and your baby
Your body goes through many physiological and endocrinological changes as part of the preparation for creating the environment for the developing baby. Changes such as pelvic changes, protruding abdomen, and postural adaptions can increase the chances that your spine and joints will become misaligned. However, chiropractic care can help counteract these misalignments and ultimately help you establish a pelvic balance during your pregnancy. This will benefit both you and your baby.
Not only can a misaligned spine cause the mother pain during pregnancy it can also put additional pressure on the developing baby. This can reduce the amount of room they have to grow, prevent them from getting in the optimal birthing position, and increasing the risk of a breech birth, which could ultimately lead to a c-section.
As your spine alignment is closely associated with your nervous system, and your nervous system is the master communication system to all the bodies systems including your reproductive system. By working with LifeGiving Chiropractic to align your spine during pregnancy you can help your entire body work more effectively.
Other Benefits of You During Pregnancy
Help allievate many pregnancy symptoms
As your body changes and your baby becomes heavier, your center of gravity shifts, this can encourage poor posture and rotation of the pelvis. This will force your body to unnaturally adapt to additional stress placed on the spine.
These changes can be painful and uncomfortable, to say the least. They can also negatively affect your joint function and nerve communication. By using the proper chiropractic care we can gently ease your spinal cord and extremities into place, which will help restore proper joint function and improve nerve communication.
This process can help with many other symptoms of pregnancy including:
- Reducing the time of labor and delivery
- Preventing a potential cesarean delivery
- Controlling symptoms of nausea
- Relieving back, neck or joint pain
- And ultimately creating a healthier pregnancy environment for you and baby
Pediatric Chiropractic Care for Newborns
Helps with colic, acid reflux, and problems breast feeding
Chiropractic care can help your baby even after birth. The birthing process is not only hard on the mother it can also be hard on a newborn. In the womb they are forced into a position that can be hard on a baby’s spine. This is believed to be the cause of some newborn health issues such as colic, acid reflux, and some problems with breast feeding. Seeking a skilled chiropractor can not only help with these issues it can also help with their development as they start learning to sit, crawl and walk.
Pediatric Chiropractic Care through Childhood
Help Their bodys grow strong and healthy
As your child gets older chiropractic care can help them with other issues they might faces as well. As their bodies grow, they may start experience pain and discomfort as they start dealing with changes in their physiology. Much like adults’, a children’s spines can become misaligned or pressured, as their body is still growing this misalignment can interrupted their nervous system and inhibit performance of certain parts of the body. This can happen from poor posture, an injury, or regular growing. Regular adjustments can prevent this and help them lead a happy healthy childhood.
