Four Great Benefits of Prenatal Chiropractic Care

 

Pregnancy is a wonderful, beautiful experience, but it can take a dramatic toll on the mom-to-be’s body from head to toe. Weight gain, stress, swelling, hormonal changes and back pain are common complaints of expectant mothers. Fortunately, our Omaha chiropractor can help alleviate many of the woes of pregnancy and even promote an easier delivery with gentle and natural prenatal chiropractic care. Check out these four benefits of seeing a chiropractor during pregnancy.

 

1. Chiropractic Care Helps Alleviate Back Pain

 

As the tummy grows, your posture changes and the back can become stressed and suffer from subluxations in the sacral and lumbar regions of the spine which often sources back pain. Chiropractic adjustments have been shown to be highly effective in relieving sacroiliac subluxations. An aligned spine keeps your body’s signals properly communicating, resulting in better health for you and your baby.

 

2. Reducing Pregnancy Complications with Prenatal Chiropractic Care

 

Our chiropractor in Omaha believes that pregnant women with aligned spines have fewer issues with pregnancy symptoms like morning sickness and swollen limbs. Some studies have indicated that there are less premature births and miscarriages amid pregnant women undergoing prenatal chiropractic care. Women also report less mood swings and feel an overall better sense of wellbeing.

 

3. Relieving Intrauterine Constraint with Chiropractic

 

Misplaced cervical vertebrae can cause the birth canal and womb to ‘tighten up.’ This constraint in the cervix often prevents the unborn baby from being able to shift into the head-first position before the big day arrives. Chiropractic adjustments can relieve stress of the cervix and help relieve and prevent intrauterine constraint. If your obstetrician mentions the possibility of a breach birth or the need for a Cesarean section, our chiropractor in Omaha would love to have a consultation with you.

 

4. Chiro Care Can Ease Things in the Delivery Room

 

Fetal Dystocia is the term used for complicated, long deliveries which are typically due to oversized babies and cervical constraints due to spinal misalignments. Receiving regular adjustments can help prevent this, but our chiropractor in Omaha can also assist patients in the delivery room with specialized adjustments that help ease fetal dystocia.
