Looking for ways to make your pregnancy as healthy and comfortable as possible? Pregnancy doesn’t have to be painful or excruciating. It’s common for women during pregnancy to complain about back pain or feeling out of it and sick. The heavy and growing belly serves as clear evidence as one cause of the problem. The spine is being pressured and curved, and being nauseous doesn’t help. With a chiropractic adjustment, a chiropractor can correct these problems by treating any misalignments.
Being pregnant means making changes in diet, routine, and sometimes medical treatment. Many women are often unsure if they can continue going to the chiropractor for adjustments while they are pregnant.
Fortunately, it is safe to have chiropractic adjustments while pregnant. There may be a few changes; for example you will use a special table which is designed to avoid pressure on your stomach while being treated. You should also avoid lying flat on your back, particularly during your last trimester. Although chiropractic adjustment is generally safe during pregnancy, check with your OB-GYN to make sure it is safe for you to receive adjustments.
There are a lot of things going on inside your body during a pregnancy. As the baby gets larger, there’s going to be more pressure on your lower back and your body is expected to provide more support to the extra weight. A chiropractic adjustment can be highly desirable to ensure that you get the help that is needed, but is it safe for the baby?
If you are used to hearing the snaps and pops of an adjustment, you may not think it’s something that is possible. However, you CAN get adjusted during pregnancy. It is simply a matter of finding a doctor that is familiar with the process to ensure that it is done properly. At Advanced Chiropractic Rehabilitation, we provide adjustments throughout the stages of pregnancy.
