When a woman is pregnant, their bodies undergo an extreme transformation, not only physically but chemically as well. Along with these changes comes a handful of symptoms that pregnant women experience that may make everyday activities hard and painful. As the baby continues to grow in size, the mother’s center of gravity drastically shifts and her posture adjusts greatly. This causes women to experience aches and pains in the lower back and hips, something that can become an extreme nuisance as the baby continues to grow and gain weight. If you live in Suffolk County, Block Chiropractic Sports & Wellness provides chiropractic care for pregnancy in Smithtown and Selden.
Seeing a chiropractor while pregnant is very common and beneficial. It can, in fact, help treat and alleviate many of the common pains and aches associated with pregnancies. The benefits of visiting a chiropractor while pregnant include:
- Alleviation of pain, especially back pain
- Realignment of the spine
- Realignment of joints
- Readjustment of posture
- Readjustment of balance
- Morning sickness relief
- Ensure a healthy immune system for both mother and baby
- Proper hip and spine alignment can provide for an easy, natural, drug-free birth
Chiropractic care during pregnancy, however, is not suggested for all expecting mothers. You should consult your doctor before visiting a chiropractor, especially if you experience the following:
