Is Chiropractic Care Safe for Pregnancy?
We get this question a lot, but yes! Chiropractic care poses no threat to mother or baby during pregnancy. We use gentle adjustment techniques and other supporting treatments that are all safe for the baby and good for your body. Because we are helping your body function better, the baby will benefit too. Our adjustments can even help with getting a breech baby into the correct position for labor. Come visit us and find out why chiropractic care can be so helpful in supporting you during your pregnancy.
Pregnancy is an exciting time, but it’s also a very uncomfortable time for most women. As the body grows to accommodate the growing baby inside the womb, the joints, ligaments and muscles are often strained. Because your body is working hard to produce everything needed to support the small baby, your body may experience a wide range of symptoms that are uncomfortable. Your body is also trying to prepare for labor, which can be difficult when you feel your energy is zapped by all of the changes.
Chiropractic care in pregnancy allows expecting mothers to relax and find relief from these symptoms. As your Omaha chiropractor, Dr. Kosak will help with the sciatica, back, hip or joint pain you might be experiencing. We can help reduce the degree of morning sickness, fatigue and stress.
Chiropractic Care for Pregnancy Symptoms in Omaha
Chiropractic care will help you during pregnancy by adjusting the parts of your body that may be struggling with the changes. As your abdomen changes to accommodate the baby, you may experience back pain. Your pelvis will also change in preparation for labor, which may give you a lot of hip pain. While some symptoms may feel directly related to nerve, ligament or muscle problems, the causes of other symptoms may seem harder to pinpoint. We treat everything from extremity numbness or weakness to nausea. There are a lot of common symptoms women experience when pregnant that can be helped with chiropractic care:
- Back pain
- Hip pain
- Morning sickness
- Acid reflux
- Joint pain
- Breech baby
- Extremity numbness or weakness
- Pinched nerves
If you have struggled with any of the above prior to pregnancy, your symptoms may flare up during this time. Our chiropractic care for pregnant women addresses these concerns and others, so please let Dr. Kosak evaluate your symptoms and develop a prenatal chiropractic care plan for you. We immediately show you how chiropractic care can help with pregnancy by providing a reduction in your pain and stress. Dr. Kosak uses gentle adjustments to position your joints and spine for comfortable movement and nerve signal flow. You feel an increase in circulation, a reduction in swelling and pain and the ability to return to your physical activities.
Prenatal chiropractic care is a natural, drug-free way to lessen your pain as it works with your body's own healing abilities. You do not have to fear the side effects of medication on yourself or your baby. Instead, you feel an increased sense of energy and wellness. Dr. Kosak may also suggest "needle-less" or electric acupuncture to improve your energy flow and reduce your discomfort.
