Chiropractic for Pregnancy?
Have you considered chiropractic care for pregnancy in Greenfield? It's common for women to complain of a lot of low back pain while pregnant. The physical stress of pregnancy can lead to a great deal of discomfort.
Many women wonder if chiropractic care is right for them during pregnancy, and in fact, it is safe and effective during all stages of pregnancy.
There are a number of reasons why pregnant women seek chiropractic care during their pregnancy. The most common reason is to relieve back pain. During pregnancy, a woman's posture changes to accommodate the baby growing inside her. The arch in the low back deepens and her center of gravity shifts forward as the abdomen grows outward. Additionally, her joints change and loosen, particularly in the pelvis, in order to expand during the birth process. Chiropractic adjustments help to restore alignment to the spine and pelvis, which can take pressure off of muscles, ligaments, and nerves. Most women find that adjustments greatly reduce their discomfort during pregnancy.
The other main reasons why women seek chiropractic care during pregnancy include:
- Muscle tension
- Nausea and fatigue
- Preparing for a VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Cesarean)
- Baby is breech or transverse
- Goal of reduced labor time and complications/interventions during birth
- Overall healthy pregnancy for mom and baby
While all Doctors of Chiropractic are able to provide chiropractic adjustments to pregnant women and children, some doctors focus more time and training on this area. Some patients also prefer to have a female doctor, especially during this sensitive time. Dr. Melissa Shera is extremely passionate about chiropractic during pregnancy, infancy and childhood, and she has received additional education in this area through the ICPA (International Chiropractic Pediatric Association). She is also certified provider of the Webster Technique.
