Pregnancy is a beautiful and miraculous event to experience. A woman’s body is created to provide for the baby’s needs and adapt to the development of the baby. Unfortunately, there can also be negative impacts due to those changes, but care from a chiropractor can minimize or eliminate those issues. That’s why we offer excellent prenatal chiropractic care at Cleveland Chiropractic & Massage in Garner (40/42 area).

The Impact of Pregnancy on a Woman’s Body

While a pregnant body goes through several changes, some of the most impactful changes include:

  • An increased back curve to support the growing weight of the belly
  • Pelvic expansion
  • Overuse of some muscles and joints to carry the body’s weight and remain balanced

All of these changes are natural, and make it possible for women to carry babies. However, any time the joints and bones face changes and pressure, the body can easily become misaligned, which is not natural. Though misalignment is painful for anyone, it can be even more painful for pregnant women especially in the lower back area.

It is important to note that if the pelvis becomes misaligned, the baby will have a more difficult time moving into the breech position for labor. It will also make it harder for the baby to get through the birth canal during delivery. Both of these issues can cause a longer and potentially more painful birth experience.

The Benefits of Prenatal Chiropractic Care

Seeking the care of a chiropractor during pregnancy can help put the joints back in their proper places, and provide a variety of other benefits. Some of these benefits include:

  • Minimize or eliminate pain in the neck, lower back, and other areas
  • Set the pelvis right, leading to a quicker delivery as the baby can move through easier and help the baby move into an optimal birth position
  • Prevent the overuse of muscles
  • Help prevent or decrease nausea

Results will vary among patients and pregnancies, but the benefits of prenatal chiropractic care are undeniable. You can continue to receive care unless your OB/GYN says otherwise.
