Pregnancy Chiropractic at Sims Chiropractic Wellness Center

If you’re expecting, you are experiencing many changes to your body including a certain amount of pain and discomfort. At Sims Chiropractic Wellness Center, we help many moms-to-be experience healthy and comfortable pregnancies. Here are some of the most common benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy:

Improved Lower Back Pain

It’s estimated that 50% of pregnant women experience lower back pain during pregnancy. Expecting women know how debilitating this pain can be. As you experience weight gain during your pregnancy, additional stress is put on your back, which can create posture problems. Gentle chiropractic care can alleviate lower back pain.

The position and health of your spine and pelvic area play a key role during delivery. Moms-to-be who receive prenatal chiropractic adjustments have experienced more desirable birthing positions for their babies. The result is faster and less complicated deliveries. When your baby’s in the proper positioning, you’re less likely to experience interventions such as forceps or vacuum, or cesarean birth.

While many women experience lower back pain during pregnancy, a majority of women continue to suffer from lower back pain after having their babies. This pain can persist up to a year after delivery. That’s why we recommend that women continue to receive postpartum chiropractic care. Postpartum chiropractic care helps moms recover sooner from the stresses that are placed on muscles, joints, ligaments, and the nervous system.
