Why should I find a prenatal chiropractor near me?
Pregnancy is hard on your body no matter how healthy and physically fit you were at the beginning. The addition of baby weight combined with natural biological process that help make childbirth possible create a perfect situation for other body imbalances to form. At Synergy Health Solutions, we are ready to help with prenatal chiropractor-led care in the Longview WA area.
Why is prenatal chiropractic care important?
When you are pregnant, the changes to your body extend far beyond creating and growing new life. To prepare for childbirth, the body starts to loosen to create the space for delivery. Hormones make this possible, and ligament and joint loosening is necessary for a natural delivery. However, it creates complications for the rest of your body at a time when it is also adjusting to a larger midsection. What often follows are coordination problems and pain.
How can a chiropractor near me help?
An enlarging midsection also puts a great deal of strain on the spine without considering the added impact of joint laxity. Spinal realignments and adjustments are a great way to alleviate some of your discomfort during pregnancy and promote as much internal balance as possible. In some cases, this renewed alignment helps manage other pregnancy symptoms, such as morning sickness.
Are there any drawbacks to prenatal chiropractic care?
There are no indications that accessing chiropractic services while pregnant has any drawbacks or causes any complications for expectant mothers or babies. However, we recommend that you always consult with an OB/GYN to discuss any additional treatments sought while pregnant. All chiropractors are trained to work with pregnant patients and have special accommodations to alleviate strains while you are receiving an adjustment. These include using specially designed tables capable of relieving pressure on the abdomen during your visit.
A chiropractor may also provide you with various exercises to help strengthen your body to prevent additional misalignments and prepare for delivery. These exercises and stretches are designed for safe use throughout pregnancy.
