Obtaining Prenatal Care from a Local Chiropractor
Treatment provided by a chiropractor can be very advantageous for a mother-to-be. It includes everything from relieving pain in the body’s muscles and spine to helping reduce nerve ending stress and boosting relaxation. If you're tired of being in pain all the time, Dr. Nadine's Bodymoves Chiropractic Inc. provides prenatal chiropractic care that is both safe and effective.
Dr. Nadine Is Trained in Prenatal Care
Generally, chiropractic care focuses on the spine, the disc assembly inside, the nerve system emanating from the spine, and the musculoskeletal structure of the body. Much of chiropractic treatment involves helping the body fix misalignments, improve healing capability, reduce stress symptoms, and improve soft tissue trauma damage. The above said, a core part of a chiropractor’s training includes treatment of an expectant mother, and it is a routine care component a chiropractic office can provide.
Above general practice, there are specializations chiropractors can pursue with related certification. These medical providers are trained in both treatment of prenatal care as well as how to work with specialized table equipment designed for pregnant patients. A primary focus of the approach is to avoid any unnecessary pressure on the woman’s abdomen as well as to reduce strain or pressure occurring that affects the same area. Thus, much of the treatment is two parts, one focused on relieving stress and the second on exercise training to help a pregnant patient exercise and stretch during pregnancy to retain flexibility and strength.
Common Pregnancy Symptoms Addressed
Chiropractic care during pregnancy can directly address multiple issues and changes that happen to the body during the baby-carrying process. These include:
- Increased strain on the lower spine and abdomen protrusion
- Changes to the pelvic area preparing for birthing
- Posture changes to carrying the weight changes
- Pressure on the sciatic nerve causing pain or loss of balance
