Pregnancy leads the body into significant muscle and ligament changes in preparation for carrying and delivering your baby. With pregnancy being a dynamic process where numerous physiological changes occur within a relatively short period of time, chiropractic care assists in the natural progression of those changes, reduces stress on your spine, enhances your ability to continue a moderate exercise program, and can reduce labor time by 24% for a first delivery and up to 39% for second and third deliveries.
In keeping all the nerve pathways open and allowing for better nerve supply to every organ, tissue, muscle, ligament, etc. with chiropractic care, you are able to remain active throughout your pregnancy. Anytime a job requires physical endurance (as during the delivery process), it’s always better to be in good physical shape. Then being in shape transfers into the body being more comfortable, able to rid itself of toxins easier, digestion becomes more complete, and an overall sense of well-being is experienced on a daily basis. Also, with less discomfort, fewer analgesics are needed throughout pregnancy and during delivery, which means fewer possible side effects for both you and your baby.
Chiropractic care has proven to be a very integral part of a woman’s lifestyle, assisting in getting healthier, promoting the ability to be active, and decreasing many challenges associated with pregnancy. Optimize your well-being and focus on the beautiful experience of having a new life developing inside your active, changing, healthy body!
