Pregnancy Chiropractic Care
Pregnancy is a time when women’s bodies change dramatically. The body begins to shift, joints loosen and center-of-gravity begins to change so that a woman can carry the developing baby and prepare her body for delivery. Low-back pain, neck and pelvic pain are all typical symptoms experienced during this time. Approximately one-half of all women report experiencing some level of back pain during their pregnancy, causing some expecting mothers to feel that aches and pains are normal and to be expected when you’re carrying a child.
Studies indicate that 75-84% of women who receive chiropractic care during pregnancy report relief of low back pain. Women who seek chiropractic care during their first pregnancy report a 24% shorter labor and delivery time than those who didn’t seek care. Mothers delivering their third and fourth child report a 39% reduction in labor time.
Another study indicated that, for those women under chiropractic care, there was a 50% decrease in usage of pain relieving medications.
