During each of the 9 months or more of your pregnancy, the extra weight you are forced to carry can cause great stress on your hips, lower and upper back, your neck and shoulders. Your spine could become be misaligned and the back muscles incapable of compensating for the new work they now have to do now. If you are experiencing pain in any of these regions of the body, you should consider establishing a regular, 3 times per week chiropractic program to alleviate the pain caused by the rigors of carrying a baby and the extra weight for 9 months.
In addition to carrying extra weight, pregnancy changes the dynamics of how you walk, sit, stand, get up and lie down. You need to make adjustments along the way as your physiology and center of gravity changes. Even after you deliver the baby, continuing regular chiropractic can help you to adjust to getting your old self back physically.
Working with women who are pregnant is a regular and everyday part of the professional practice at Brewer Chiropractic. There are no known contradictions to receiving chiropractic treatment when pregnant. Wearing the proper shoes and learning how to get up and down from a sitting position are necessary when pregnant. With regular chiropractic treatments, you will have a properly aligned spine and this will alleviate nerve pressure allowing your internal organs to work more properly. Chiropractic treatments can alleviate not only back pain but also hip and neck discomfort.
