Pregnancy and Chiropractic Go Together Like Peanut Butter and Jelly!

Creating and maintaining good health is more than just a ‘lifestyle.’ It involves investing in your body: what you put in it, how you move it, and how you treat it. Chiropractic care isn’t just there for you when you have an injury; instead, it’s a tool in your health toolbox that can be used to improve physical, emotional, and mental health!

Chiropractic care is a perfect match for pregnancy because it’s gentle and soothing for mamas to be. Like that familiar PBJ of your youth, you’re going to feel great after an adjustment when you are pregnant.

The body goes through extraordinary changes during pregnancy that can, at times, result in physical discomfort or pain. As a prenatal chiropractor, I focus on proper pelvic alignment during the prenatal journey. Not only does this decrease issues like low-back pain, but it can also help ensure that your baby can move into its proper birthing position when the time comes.

Once babe has arrived, I always encourage our patients to continue with postnatal chiropractic care. This can help correct any issues, like loosened ligaments or misalignments, to prevent injury and alleviate any postpartum discomfort you might be experiencing.

Chiropractic care has also been shown to help stimulate endorphin levels, which are especially helpful in those early, exhausting days, but can also be beneficial for any parent dealing with postpartum depression.

A core building block to good health, at any age, is getting good, consistent sleep, but it’s especially important after baby arrives. As a new parent, sleep becomes a necessary weapon in your arsenal of preparing for and executing each crazy, hectic day.

We often carry our daily worries and stress throughout our body and nervous system. Regular chiropractic care can improve your ability to get a good night’s sleep by ensuring proper spinal alignment which helps improve your nervous system
