Are you having a rough pregnancy or you would like to decrease labor? You may have heard that a chiropractor can assist but is this true? Revelation Chiropractic answer some frequently asked questions about chiropractic adjustments during pregnancy to help set the record straight!
1) Can I See A Pregnancy Chiropractor If I Am Expecting?
Yes and if you are not already you definitely should! A majority of the midwife clinics in the area refer us many many clients. A pregnancy chiropractor reduces interference to the mother’s vital nerve system which controls and co-ordinates all of her systems and functions. By improving maternal function we are decreasing the potential for unnecessary intervention. To the infant, a pregnancy chiropractor reduces interference to the mother’s nerve system allowing for better baby development. Pelvic balance allows the baby greater room to develop without restrictions to the forming cranium, spine and other skeletal structures. A prenatal chiropractor offers the baby the room to move into the best possible position for birth. With proper fetal positioning, there is a significant decrease in dystocia and the resulting birth trauma caused by intervention. Getting chiropractic care while pregnant has been shown to reduce labor time by up to 60%. ~Jeanne Ohm, DC Check out this article about the “5 Way’s Chiropractic Care Protects Pregnancy”
2) Is it Safe to Go to a Chiropractor while Pregnant?
Yes, not only is it safe, it is highly recommended. Our pregnancy chiropractor in Louisville, CO even has special pillows for you to use for all 3 different trimesters as that baby bump begins to grow! The new chiropractic technique we use (Torque Release Technique) is 100% safe, involves no cracking, popping or twisting and involves no bad side effects like anti-inflammatory drugs which should be kept to an absolute minimum during pregnancy.
3) What Conditions Can a Prenatal Chiropractor Help With?
– Pregnancy Induced Low Back Pain
Research shows that 57%-69% of women will experience low back pain during their pregnancy. In a recent study, a large population of women under pregnancy chiropractic care had an average starting pain score of 5.9 (out of 10). After receiving chiropractic treatment, they reported a score of only 1.5.
