Pregnancy can be a wonderful time for many women, but it can also do quite a number on the female body! Pregnancy affects women differently not just from woman to woman, but from pregnancy to pregnancy. One thing that is common, however, is that many expectant mothers experience issues that could be helped by a pregnancy chiropractor.
Because pregnancy comes with a lot of hormonal changes that work to stretch and relax a woman’s joints, it can also cause a lot of issues with joint pain, back pain and even easier dislocations in some women. These types of issues can make it hard for a woman to keep up a regular exercise routine as well as perform normal daily tasks that wouldn’t be bothersome otherwise.
When a pregnancy chiropractor works with pregnant women, the utmost care is taken to ensure the health and safety of both baby and mom. All pregnancy chiropractors will discuss medical issues that could be affected by chiropractic care such as preeclampsia, high blood pressure, etc. Women with high-risk pregnancies should carefully discuss the use of a pregnancy chiropractor with both their OBGYN as well as pregnancy chiropractor. Many women who are experiencing a healthy and routine pregnancy find that visits to a pregnancy chiropractor can alleviate the joint and back pain that are so common with the sudden weight strain on the lower spine.
If you find that pregnancy comes with a lot of nerve pain, joint pain, back pain and other issues that can be alleviated with a pregnancy chiropractor, talk today with us at Mapleview Chiropractic Centre!
