Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy

Here at Jex Family Chiropractic in Kent, your health is our first priority. Pregnancy chiropractic care can be just as important. Women who have endured the pains of carrying a child can experience both a the joys and pains involved with carrying a child. However, through good chiropractic care it does not have to be. Many pregnant women see a chiropractor for a variety of reasons. With our Kent chiropractor, we will work on making this short time of discomfort be changed to a delightful experience.

Reasons for Chiropractic Care While Pregnant

Your body is going through several changes while pregnant. These changes include a protruding abdomen and a curved back, stretching of the pelvic bone, increased breast size, and let’s not forget the constant urge to pee all the time. There have been reports of skin color changing as well. In addition, the pituitary gland is said to heighten during pregnancy. Health maintenance for the spinal column will relieve these pressures. Our chiropractor can also work to relieve disc and nerves in the areas most affected. Adjusting misaligned joints in the body and spine can also relieve nerve stress from pregnancy as well. Receiving pregnancy chiropractic care may also prevent the possibility of Intrauterine constraint, which is when there is an external force that obstructs the normal movement of the fetus from entering the vaginal canal properly; as a result preventing natural birth. It is also believed that seeing a chiropractor may be beneficial for women who are trying to conceive.

With all these changes, a woman may need to see a chiropractor to relieve these pressures. Chiropractic care will help control symptoms of morning sickness during the first trimester, maintain a healthy overall pregnancy, possibly preventing a Cesarean section, and reduce the time for labor and delivery of the baby. Pregnancy is a fulfilling job, but can leave the body in pain. Let us help make it a rewarding one with less pain.
