Prenatal chiropractic treatment involves safe and gentle adjustments, massage, exercise and stretching.
Throughout pregnancy, chiropractic techniques are adapted for belly growth and modified using props like pregnancy pillows.
The chiropractor can assess your pelvis, sacrum and vertebrae for any misalignments that could be responsible for pain or creating uterine constraint.
Tips for Expectant Mothers
In addition to gentle, non-invasive chiropractic treatment, there are some tips you can follow to help keep your spine aligned:
Keep your core strong so it can support your spine. Ask your healthcare practitioner about the benefits of swimming, yoga or other low-impact exercise programs.
2. Sleep well!
You know you need to rest, but are you sleeping smart? Your growing uterus can place pressure on the large blood vessels in your abdomen and restrict blood flow.
Sleep on your left side and place a pillow between your knees to keep your spine in proper alignment.
3. Think twice!
Maybe put those killer heels aside until after the baby is born.
Rest frequently with your feet elevated.
Don’t lift heavy objects (or toddlers) – ask for help.
