Adjusting women through pregnancy results in a healthier pregnancy. A healthier pregnancy will make for an easier labor and delivery and a better transition for the baby into this life.
Chiropractic care through pregnancy is not only safe...it is essential. We can look at the implications of subluxation (misaligned vertebra) from a biomechanical, hormonal and neurological standpoint. It is easy for all of us to see postural changes through pregnancy – the center of gravity changes, the weight of the baby places increased pressure on the spine and pelvis and towards the end of the pregnancy, changes are seen in walking patterns.
What we can’t see are the millions of different hormonal changes and chemical reactions occurring both in the mother and the developing baby – all of which are controlled and coordinated through the nerve system. Chiropractic is all about reducing any interference in the nerve system. This will allow it to control and coordinate the body at its optimum capability.
