Prenatal Chiropractic & Lower Back Pain
A pregnant woman will usually suffer from lower back pain while awaiting the birth of their baby. Making an appointment with our chiropractor at Capitol Rehab of Crofton is an option available if you are looking for relief from aches and pains caused by pregnancy. Here is some information about prenatal chiropractic care during pregnancy.
What Is Prenatal Chiropractic Care
Prenatal chiropractic care is the maintaining of the spine and nearby areas of the body without using medication or surgical processes. Adjustments of the spine will promote healing and a state of healthiness throughout the body. During pregnancy, aches and pains are usually noticed, especially during the third trimester. Our prenatal chiropractor is trained to administer procedures while keeping the baby and mother in the best of health during the processes conducted.
The Common Conditions Treated By Our Prenatal Chiropractor
There are a few conditions that our prenatal chiropractor will treat during an appointment. The most sought out treatment by pregnant women is help with sciatica or lower back pain. This is done with spinal alignments, gentle massage, and temperature therapy. Our chiropractor will also provide recommendations regarding stretches or light exercises that can be done to help reduce pain. Poor posture, pelvic changes, and a prominent protruding of the abdomen can all be treated with chiropractic care during pregnancy.
The Benefits Of Prenatal Chiropractic Treatment
In addition to a reduction of discomfort and pain, there are other benefits to be obtained with chiropractic care during pregnancy. A misalignment of the pelvic region reduces the amount of room a baby has available in this womb. This may make it hard for the baby to get into a position for easy delivery. Spinal adjustments can reduce the possibility of a breech or posterior birth. The chance of having a C-section also diminishes with routine chiropractic visits.
