Pregnancy and Chiropractic
Pregnancy is often one of the happiest times in a family’s life. However, due to the nature of growing a child within your womb, the body also undergoes several significant physical changes. The body’s ability to foster life comes with compromises to a mother’s body which can cause discomfort and pain in the back and neck. Additionally, since the fetus is vulnerable to many medications, mothers are often hesitant to take medication to alleviate their discomfort.
Chiropractic appointments can be a solution to your back health during pregnancy since there are no contraindications for chiropractic care during pregnancy. This means that chiropractic care should always be considered an option for expectant mothers to support their health and overall comfort throughout their pregnancy.
