Have you been told that low back pain during pregnancy is just a normal symptom of pregnancy? Or that it will go away after you’ve given birth?
Wait and suffer? Why? Pain is not normal. Pain is a signal telling you something isn’t right. Get it fixed and the pain goes away.
Pregnancy-specific chiropractic is a fantastic way to enjoy your pregnancy with the least amount of discomfort possible so you can stay active and prepare your body for the big day.
Pregnancy causes significant changes to a woman’s body in a very short time. Many are obvious – weight gain, postural and gait changes. What we don’t see are the thousands of different hormonal and chemical changes occurring in both the mother and the developing baby.
Now, more than ever, a women needs a healthy nervous system and spine that can react appropriately. Under all this stress and increased pressures sometimes the body does not adapt well and subluxations develop. This can produce symptoms. Our Chiropractors will identify the areas not adapting and help them, and then show you how to help yourself so you can function and adapt better in the future.
Giving birth is like a marathon at the end of nine long months of training. Both require great physical exertion, focus, concentration and a certain amount of confidence to face all that lays ahead. Pregnancy-specific chiropractic care can help you prepare for race day!
Immediately after birth, your body experiences another great posture change and your back needs to adapt to not having a pregnant belly anymore.
Let us not forget the now 24 hour on call feeding, lifting, bending, stooping, carrying, rocking, walking, and so much more, all quite often on very little sleep. Make time to take care of yourself! Life with a new baby is a magical experience mixed with intense physical and emotional stress. Caring for your self allows you to enjoy and better care for your baby. Chiropractic helps your body adapt and move more easily.
