Increase your chances of a pain-free pregnancy and a smooth delivery by seeking pregnancy chiropractic care. Seeing our chiropractor at APEX Wellness Center not only provides many benefits for you when you're pregnant but for your baby as well. Here are just a few of the many benefits.
One of the most common complaints pregnant women experience is back pain. This type of pain happens as the uterus grows, which forces the abdominal muscles to stretch causing strain on the back. When the uterus gets bigger it also forces the posture of a pregnant woman to change. One more reason a growing uterus causes back pain is that it might be pressing on a nerve.
Weight gain during pregnancy adds more work for the muscles and more strain on the joints, which can also cause back pain. During pregnancy, you are probably aware that you need to be careful when it comes to taking certain kinds of medication. If you would rather not take any over-the-counter pain medications to relieve your back pain, seeing a chiropractor offers a drug-free, natural way to deal with back pain during pregnancy. For optimum prenatal health, chiropractors can also recommend proper nutritional supplements along with safe and effective exercises.
Along with reducing back pain, another benefit of seeking chiropractic care during pregnancy is that it can help prepare your body for labor and delivery. Since the pelvic bones get aligned during spinal adjustments, it can help the baby get into the proper position and make it easier for the baby to pass through the birthing canal.
It has been proven that chiropractic care during pregnancy can even reduce the amount of time that you are in labor. Some studies have shown that women who are having their first baby, and who are going to a chiropractor for regular adjustments, can reduce their labor time by 24 percent. For women who have previously had a baby, labor time can be reduced by 39 percent. Shorter labor times means less pain during the delivery and a reduced chance of back labor. It also means that there is a reduced chance of complications arising during labor and delivery.
If you are pregnant and would like to experience the many benefits pregnancy chiropractic care has to offer, or you are concerned about your prenatal health, simply contact APEX Wellness Center in Dallas, TX at 972-392-9402. We would love to help both you and your baby.
