Chiropractic care has proven to be very beneficial for pregnant women because pregnancy causes many structural and physiological changes to occur in a woman's body. Chiropractic care can help alleviate a number of issues that may arise during pregnancy as well as prepare a woman's body to have a healthy labor and delivery.
The International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) actually recommends for women to receive adjustments during pregnancy in order to establish balance in the pelvic region, which allows for babies to have a better chance of moving in the correct position for birth. Proper positioning of the baby decreases the chances of difficult labor and makes the delivery easier and safer for the mother and baby.
Some other benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy can include:
- controlling symptoms of nausea
- reducing back, neck, or joint pain
- reducing labor and delivery time
- reducing the chances of a potential cesarean delivery
