Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy

More pregnant mothers are turing to chiropractic care during their pregnancy. Why Do Pregnant Women Need Chiropractic Care?

Why Do Pregnant Woman Need to Find a Good Cape Girardeau Chiropractor?

As you may already know, or be experiencing, her body undergoes a great deal of physiological and endocrinological changes as the baby starts to develop in her womb.  As a result of these changes many mothers can suffer from changes in her joints or spine in either one or a combination of the following:

• More prominent curve on her back,

• Enlargement of the abdomen,

• Pelvic changes,

• Changes in posture.

These are the specific changes that make woman experience chronic lower back pains throughout their pregnancy!  This may mean for other woman having difficulty attaining the proper balance and alignment.  It is for this reason that Chiropractic Care will help them correct and enable them to develop a better posture, which will put less pressure on the body at this time.  Also, changes or misalignment of your pelvis could limit the baby’s development inside of your womb.  To further describe this, in order for the body to receive proper brain to body communication there should be no imbalances in spinal structures.  If there are, brain to body messages may not be adequate.  This could result in changes in your body’s functioning, but also could hugely impact the developing baby!

Any properly educated Cape Girardeau Chiropractor should have been educated on procedures caring for pregnant women, so if you follow the tips that I have taught you up to this point on how to select a Cape Girardeau Chiropractor, etc. Then this process will be extremely safe and gentle.   If you have not read the previous articles, the big thing that we are looking for in this case is that your Chiropractor has a means above just feeling you with his hands as to whether your problem is something that he can help or even should be attempting to help.  In our office we have computerized readings to tell us this, and this is the type of thing you should be looking for when dealing with your health or your baby’s health!

There Chiropractors who use Chiropractic for pre-natal and peri-natal care women.  In our office we have been trained in the care of both and have had additional training for both.  Doctors who utilize Chiropractic care to help pregnant mothers often need to see her more regularly according to how far along into her pregnancy she is.  In some cases your Cape Girardeau Chiropractor may suggest stretching and exercise routines that the pregnant woman can use to have a safer and healthier pregnancy.

The many benefits of Chiropractic Care on Pregnancy

Before women even undergo labor, the recommendations to undergo chiropractic care help them in several ways. It includes the following:

• It helps them achieve a healthier pregnancy.

• It will enable women to have better control over symptoms or other conditions associated with pregnancy.

• It enables them to deliver faster and more efficiently.

• It provides relief from pain on the neck, back, or joints.

• It helps women avoid the possibility of undergoing cesarean section.   

Chiropractic Effects during Labor 

If the benefits above didn’t care your eye, there is still more!  The labor itself can actually benefit, especially in the realm of pain management.  If you want a more successful delivery, try to learn more about how Chiropractic Care can help you achieve that.

Length of Labor

If the human body is severely stressed it will undergo many changes in terms of balance and ability to adapt.  The level of balance and adaptability will greatly influence labor!  Often times when women must undergo Cesarean section during labor, it is due to the body’s inability to adapt to the stress of the delivery.  Much of this extra stress can be attributed to a misaligned pelvis or less than perfect brain to body communication.  These things can actually slow down the descent of the fetus towards the mother’s birth canal.  Limited range of motion will also greatly affect her ability to adapt to the labor efficiently. 

As you can see, proper balance by using Chiropractic Care, can help a woman address the above problems before she even goes into labor, and may help her reduce the time spent in labor.  You may have heard the saying, “an ounce of prevention, is worth a pound of cure.”  During child birth is a time I am sure you would like to have those type of pounds of prevention in your corner! 

Fetal Position

This is another big factor when dealing with labor time.  By coming into the labor undergoing proper Chiropractic Care the pelvic positioning should be such, where the fetus is already correctly placed.  This way it is much easier and quicker for the baby to be delivered.  Many health experts advise that undergoing good Chiropractic Care helps many mothers avoid the dreaded acquisition of any form of back labor.  Avoiding this would during labor would something else I am sure you would love!
