What is Prenatal Chiropractic for?
More and more women are considering chiropractic care during pregnancy or a prenatal chiropractor to help with a better birth experience. Research shows that chiropractic helps with several conditions or problems that can occur during pregnancy. Conditions such as fetal position, dystocia in labour, placenta previa, low back pain during pregnancy, Breech presentation or other conditions. You don’t have to have a pregnancy problem for chiropractic to help. We see more expectant moms using chiropractic care to have a better chance at having natural delivery with less intervention.
Pre-natal Chiropractic works extremely well to get the body balanced and in tune before there is a problem. Pain and discomfort are often the motivation for an expectant mom to find our office but more frequently we are meeting moms who want to be proactive.
How does Prenatal Chiropractic work?
Chiropractic whether pregnant or not works the same way! A prenatal chiropractor uses specific tests to check for imbalance or interference. If there is neuro or structural indicator the prenatal chiropractor works to restore balance first in the nervous system. Second in musculoskeletal system specifically the pelvis and lower spine. The pelvis and lower spine act as a unit to allow passage of the baby through the birth canal. When the body is connected and balanced there is a much better opportunity for things to go the way they are supposed to. Removing interference and restoring function is the way it works.
Your prenatal chiropractor will use different tests to see if there is interference or imbalance. The body gives clues to where and when things need to be restored. A prenatal chiropractor knows how to find the best ways to restore balance and function. Pain or a symptom is often a secondary or collateral condition to imbalance. Restoring balance takes pressure off the body, restores the communication and allows the normal function to return.
