Pregnancy is a wonderful time for all women but it's not without its own set of pains. In fact, many expectant mothers experience a lot of pain during pregnancy. This pain could be in the form of pelvic pain, headaches, and muscle strain.
The combined stress of gaining weight and having a baby grow inside the womb makes pain and discomfort more likely. Women typically gain 25 to 35 during pregnancy, with the baby growing a few inches every month.
Thankfully, there is help for pregnancy-related pain. Most women seek help for abdominal pain, back pain, fibromyalgia, joint pain and migraines.
According to the Journal of Midwifery and Women’s Health, most cases of lower back pain go unreported and untreated despite being very common. Only about half of expectant mothers seek relief for their pains and those that do, seek non-medical treatments because of the risk to the unborn baby. There is pregnancy help Gilbert AZ.
One of the most common non-medical treatments for pain is chiropractic care. Chiropractors treat pregnant women throughout their pregnancy.
Chiropractic care can benefit the body in ways that no other treatment can. Through gentle, precise adjustments, nerve interference is removed along the spine. Chiropractors work to correct subluxations or misalignments in the spinal, pelvic and cranial area. When misaligned, these areas create an imbalance in the surrounding ligaments and muscles. The resulting stress to the nervous stress affects the body's ability to function optimally.
Chiropractic care throughout the pregnancy helps the mother be healthier and more comfortable as well as the developing baby. Women under chiropractic care tend to have easier deliveries. It is important for the newborn to have a spinal checkup as soon after the delivery as possible. Having a healthy, aligned spine allows optimal development for the newborn child.
