Contrary to what many people will tell you, pregnant women do not need to just accept feeling uncomfortable during pregnancy. And what many refer to as the normal aches and pains of pregnancy are anything but normal.
In almost all cases, the discomforts of pregnancy stem from a combination of hormonal and biomechanical changes. These changes cause ligaments to relax and joints to become misaligned. Chiropractic care can alleviate the source of misalignment and help to relieve the symptoms.
The American Pregnancy Association published an article, Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy, outlining the many benefits of visiting a chiropractor during pregnancy. These benefits include:
- Maintaining a healthier pregnancy
- Controlling symptoms of nausea
- Reducing the time of labor and delivery
- Relieving back, neck and joint pain
- Preventing a cesarean delivery
