Regular chiropractic adjustments during pregnancy have been linked with shorter, less stressful labors. At Family Chiropractic & Natural Healing Center, we are specialists in pregnancy chiropractic. The hormonal and structural changes that occur in a woman's body during pregnancy often conspire to leave her pelvis out of alignment, creating a domino effect of instability in the base of the spine. This contributes to back pain and can make it difficult for the baby to get into a proper birthing position.
We focus on establishing pelvic balance to allow plenty of room for the baby to grow at every stage of pregnancy. As the due date approaches, this becomes more critical because the baby will attempt to move into the proper head down position that makes for easy delivery. Misalignment in the pelvic joints contributes to intrauterine restraint and prevents the baby from assuming the proper birthing condition. At our office in Milpitas, we focus on maintaining proper pelvic alignment, despite the physical changes to set you up for success on delivery day.
A comparative review by the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, found here, states that: "Chiropractic evaluation and treatment during pregnancy may be considered a safe and effective means of treating common musculoskeletal symptoms that affect pregnant patients." With very little risk of side-effect, we facilitate an easier pregnancy with less pain and a higher likelihood for an easier, shorter labor and delivery.
