Chiropractors are trained to evaluate and treat certain bodily disorders through the use of all-natural and drug-free treatments including manual adjustments, therapeutic exercise, massage, and acupuncture. However, chiropractic care addresses more than just problems of the musculoskeletal system. Our Portland chiropractors promote full body healing by restoring optimal function of the neurological, physiological, and emotional systems, as well.
For pregnant women, chiropractic care offers a holistic and safe approach to maintaining optimal physical and psychological wellness.
Top 3 Benefits of Chiropractic for Pregnancy
1. Relieve joint and muscle pain. A woman’s body undergoes many physical changes throughout pregnancy. This can lead to stress and strain on the joints and muscles, especially in the spine and pelvis. Chiropractors use safe treatments including adjustments, mobilizations, and massage therapy to restore a woman’s optimal spinal alignment and relieve aches, pains, and even nausea associated with pregnancy.
2. Reduce labor and delivery time. Chiropractic services such as those offered by our Portland chiropractors can effectively restore a woman’s natural posture and alignment, and minimize physical and psychological stress. Both of these factors can have a significant positive impact on childbirth. Many women have experienced shortened and less complicated labor and deliveries following regular chiropractic care throughout their pregnancies.
3. Healthier pregnancy for both mother and child. The physical and psychological health of a woman during her pregnancy will have profound effects on the health of her baby. Chiropractic care maintains safe alignment of a woman’s spine and pelvis, which ensures that there will be enough room for her growing baby. Additionally, calming and pain-relieving techniques provided to the mother can positively impact the hormonal and neurological influences she has on her child.
