Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy
Chiropractic care can prove to be a vital tool to use in your ongoing search for wellness during any time of life. During pregnancy, however, the body needs extra special care and attention. At Apex Wellness Center, serving Dallas, TX, we know just how special and stressful pregnancy can be.
Why Choose Chiropractic Care While Pregnant?
Most pregnancies do not pose any limitations to chiropractic care. Our trained chiropractors at Apex Wellness Center are very familiar with working with pregnant patients. We take into consideration our patient's comfort, needs, and wellness goals while creating a customized treatment plan for each individual.
The spinal column, muscles, and joints are under an enormous amount of stress during the months of pregnancy. Your Dallas chiropractor can take steps to relieve a great deal of this stress through spinal adjustments and massage therapy.
Will I Be Comfortable During My Session?
Our chiropractors will do everything in their power to make sure that a pregnant patient is as comfortable as possible during her session. It is important during your session to speak up if you are uncomfortable. The more information your chiropractor has, the easier it will be able to address your issues. Special pregnancy tables can be used to relieve pressure on the abdomen.
What Kind of Issues Can Affect My Body During Pregnancy?
There are many changes going on in your body during pregnancy beyond the obvious growing of the fetus. The protruding abdomen can increase the curvature of the spine. This can also result in pelvic changes. Many women also experience changes in their posture as they try to compensate for the changes in their center of balance and their weight.
How Will Chiropractic Care Benefit Me?
Chiropractic care during your pregnancy can help to reduce nausea, reduce back pain, strengthen the spinal column and surrounding muscles, and potentially reduce complications during delivery.
What Can I Expect During My First Visit?
During your first visit to Apex Wellness, you can expect an evaluation of your overall health and wellness. If you have experienced any complications in your pregnancy so far, then you should discuss these complications with your chiropractor.
The chiropractor you visit will use the information gathered to create a customized treatment plan for you. This treatment plan will address your specific health and wellness goals as well as special issues you may be dealing with.
