The wondrous process of growing a baby inside you causes many changes inside the pregnant body. Not only do your organs shift, but lots of pressure is put on your skeletal structure as well. Since the baby is growing day by day, chiropractic management of the structural changes that are going on in the pregnant body can help alleviate the pain that might be associated with pregnancy. Here are the top 5 reasons why we think you could visit a chiropractor during pregnancy:
- Stay in alignment. Safe, effective adjustments can help combat spinal misalignment or dysfunction during pregnancy. For instance, if your lower back goes out of alignment, catching it quickly through regular visits to your chiropractor is much better than letting your spine be out of alignment for months at a time.
- It might help with labor and delivery. Studies show that being fully aligned at the time of delivery can reduce your need for medication by 50%. You don’t want to be thinking about how your back is out in the middle of labor! Make sure you call your chiropractor to stay in alignment preceding the days your baby is due.
- Customized exercises. Since we here at Care Medical Centers are also licensed physical therapists, we can help you develop exercises to help keep your body strong during pregnancy. These exercises can help with weight gain and help with your recovery after the baby is born.
- Post-partum recovery. Once the baby is born, everything has to slowly go back to where it was. Your organs have to shift back into place and your skeletal structure has to return to normal. Getting care from a chiropractor for not only yourself but also your baby can help with the proper restoration of bio mechanics and also help you with the strain put on your back from breastfeeding.
Bringing a new baby into the world is a beautiful time for your family. Make sure you ease the stress of this process by involving your chiropractor to allow for a holistic, natural approach. Call us at Care Medical Centers today at (954) 981-4355 to allow us to help you manage the structural changes in your body during pregnancy. We have offices in Ft. Lauderdale, Hollywood and Boynton Beach to be of easy access to you.
