WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF CHIROPRACTIC DURING PREGNANCY?
Something pregnant women often times complain about is low back pain. This is extremely common. As your stomach starts to grow, your center of mass changes, bringing you low back into extension which causes many women pain. There is also a hormonal change that creates more elasticity in your ligaments causing more movement than you are used to. Chiropractic and small rehabilitation exercises can really help this.
WILL MY BIRTH BE EASIER BECAUSE OF TREATMENT?
This is very possible. Aligning your hips and pelvis in an optimal position can open the birth canal to make birth easier. Pelvic floor and stability exercises before birth can also help while pushing.
