Are you pregnant and experiencing sciatic nerve pain, sacroiliac pain, pubic symphysis, or round ligament pain? If so, a visit to our chiropractors may help you have a healthier and less painful pregnancy. Expectant mothers often visit a chiropractor to help manage and treat their neck pain, back pain, and extremity pain without having to rely on pain medication.
If you are expecting and experiencing any of these conditions, our team at Walker Chiropractic and Wellness Center in Miramar can help. We have gathered some of the most common questions that we run into regarding prenatal chiropractic care.
Is prenatal chiropractic care safe?
Yes, according to the American Pregnancy Association, there are no known contraindications to chiropractic care throughout pregnancy. In fact, our chiropractor Dr. Venessa Walker and our team are specially trained to work with pregnant patients.
What are the benefits of chiropractic care for expectant mothers?
There are several benefits for mothers-to-be when they visit a chiropractor. Chiropractic care can help realign the spine and joints that are affected by pregnancy. It can also help to address and remove nerve obstructions in the spinal column that may prevent your organs and immune system from functioning at their optimal levels. At the same time, a visit to the chiropractor can help reduce your nausea, vomiting, and even headaches by realigning your spine and improving your overall nervous system function.
How can prenatal chiropractic care help the birthing process?
According to the American Chiropractic Association, chiropractic care can help the birthing process. The association reports that first-time moms who have received regular chiropractic care had 25% shorter labor on average. Our services can also help align your body and reduce pain in your back, legs, and pelvis area during childbirth.
What are the benefits of chiropractic care after childbirth?
Chiropractic care can play an important role in your postpartum care. New mothers often experience loosened ligaments, pinched nerves, and persistent back pain. They also see a change in their posture and balance. We can provide quality chiropractic care to address these issues.
