Prenatal Chiropractic & Lower Back Pain
During pregnancy, changes in the body tend to cause discomfort such as lower back pain. If you are pregnant, and you are experiencing this yourself or if you wish to thwart the possibility of lower back distress, making an appointment at Capitol Rehab of Crofton in Crofton to meet with our chiropractor is an option to consider for relief. Here is some information about prenatal chiropractic care to read over so you understand how it works and how it can help.
What Prenatal Chiropractic Care Is
Chiropractic care during pregnancy is not much different than receiving routine chiropractic care. The processes used include spinal adjustments, temperature therapy, massage, electric stimulating equipment, exercises and stretches, and lifestyle changes. When a patient is pregnant, they will receive the same care a routine patient, however, the targeted areas of the body will help relieve pain associated with the pregnancy.
How Our Chiropractor Will Help Discomfort
You will be asked to lie on a table with a special insert or pillow to help protect your stomach during your session. Our chiropractor will use a series of gentle movements along your spine to adjust it in a way where the joints are relieved of stress. This will instantly bring you relief to your lower back and will aid in the healing of the area so it does not continuously feel uncomfortable.
The Benefits That Are Obtained From Chiropractic Care
When a pregnant woman uses chiropractic care as a means of back pain relief, she will also have the benefit of keeping the pelvic area from restricting space for the growing baby. Spinal adjustments allow for plenty of pelvic room and will also decrease the possibility of Caesarean or breech birth. Many women also find that routine adjustments decrease the amount of time they spend in labor.
