Total Wellness’s certified doctors offer specialized care to maintain optimal spine alignment during the prenatal period. As pregnancy progresses, the body undergoes three major changes:
- Protruding abdomen and increased back curve
- Pelvic changes
- Postural adaptations
Any of these changes can increase stress on the body and result in a misaligned spine or joint.
In certain cases, a lack of pelvic balance and alignment may limit the space a baby has to develop in the womb. On top of obvious adverse effects this may have on the baby’s growth, this condition can also create difficulty during delivery time by preventing a normal birth position. Natural labor will be impeded as a result, leading to C-section deliveries or other complications.
Prenatal chiropractic adjustments will correct any misalignments and allow your baby to develop unimpeded. In addition to relieving back, neck or joint pain, chiropractic care during pregnancy can reduce labor and delivery time, control symptoms of nausea and prevent a potential C-section delivery. We will also recommend stretches and exercises to use during your pregnancy to maintain your physical and mental health as you reach term.
Visiting our trained doctors throughout your pregnancy will ensure the health of both mother and baby and create the conditions for a smoother, safer delivery.
