Pregnancy Chiropractic Care
“I can’t imagine being pregnant without having chiropractic.
It made such a difference in my pregnancy and I love helping others the same way it helped me.”
There are so many changes that happen to a woman during pregnancy. Their body stretches and loosens to make room for the miracle of life. Hormones are flowing, and appetites increase to help a baby grow. For new mothers, pregnancy comes with so many wonderful things and so many new experiences for the body. Even experienced moms can have new symptoms every pregnancy.
Gentle, specific chiropractic care at Essential Life Chiropractic is a great way to support a pregnant body and growing baby. For instance, as the hormones loosen the ribs, mom can get midback/rib pain. Midback chiropractic adjustments can help to decrease this discomfort. Morning-sickness can come with headaches and nausea. Specific chiropractic neck adjustments can help to decrease neck pain and headaches. Finally, the low back is a constant source of pressure for a pregnant mom because of where the baby grows and is birthed. Specific adjustments to the low back/sacral will decrease pain and help the pelvic cavity to open at its best for the healthiest delivery possible.
