Prenatal Chiropractic Care
Pregnancy is a time in a woman's life full of hope and excitement. Along with these positive aspects, comes the disadvantage of potential aches and pains due to changing body shape and weight gain. One way to alleviate discomfort is with a prenatal chiropractic appointment with our chiropractor at Total Wellness Solutions in Atlanta, GA.
What Is Prenatal Chiropractic Care?
During pregnancy, chiropractic care is beneficial to those who suffer from discomfort caused by rapid body changes. Prenatal chiropractic sessions are held in our office in a setting where your comfort is first and foremost in importance. Chiropractic appointments during pregnancy do not harm the mother or baby in any way. In fact, many women find that the process that is used is quite relaxing. Prenatal chiropractic care can be used in conjunction with routine doctor's visits. The procedures are non-invasive and there are no medications administered, making chiropractic care a great way to reduce stresses within the body without causing risk.
Common Conditions A Prenatal Chiropractor Treats
Our prenatal chiropractor treats several difficulties that many pregnant women experience during this time of their lives. Many women find that they deal with back pain or sciatica during their pregnancies. This is because the center of gravity in the body shifts as weight is gained. Chiropractic care during pregnancy can help with the reduction of headaches, neck pain, and general discomfort.
Some women find that routine visits to our chiropractor throughout their pregnancies can lead to shorter birthing times and a reduction in the chances of Cesarean sections. Regular visits also help to minimize nausea for those who suffer from morning sickness. Our chiropractor may also determine how your baby is positioned in the body, giving you insight regarding the possibility of a transverse, breech, or posterior birth.
What Makes Prenatal Chiropractic Care Different?
Prenatal chiropractic visits are similar to routine visits, however, our practitioner uses extra precautions to ensure the patient remains as comfortable as possible throughout the session. Special tables are used to help protect a woman's stomach during spinal adjustments. Temperature control is administered to ensure that heat does not become excessive as well. Our practitioner will discuss concerns and help with creating a personal plan to address any difficulties safely and efficiently. All of the processes are non-invasive and safe for both mother and child.
