Chiropractic Care for Pregnancy

pregnancy

The physical stress of pregnancy can lead to a great deal of discomfort. It's common for women in Rogers to complain of low back pain while pregnant, as well as related issues, such as sciatica, leg cramps and constipation. This can lead to difficulty performing daily routines as well as difficulties in labor.

Chiropractic treatment for pregnancy is can be an outstanding source of relief for back pain. Many women also comment that the birth process was easier after having undergone chiropractic treatments. The following article takes a more in-depth look at the discomfort caused by pregnancy and explains exactly how chiropractic treatment can help.


Prenatal Chiropractor in Rogers

During pregnancy, a woman’s body is undergoing a number of different changes to accommodate the growing baby. As the baby grows, a mother’s center of gravity shifts to the front of her pelvis, resulting in added stress and discomfort in the low back and the various joints of the pelvis. At the peak of pregnancy and the associated weight gain, the curve in the low back (lordotic curve) can increase to the point of causing serious impact on the vertebral joints, the sacrum and the hip joints.

The nerves that travel to all other parts of the body have their origin in the spine. When the spine is compressed, these nerves can become irritated causing the pain to radiate to other areas of the body. Sciatica is a condition commonly stimulated by pregnancy, involving pain that radiates from the low back all the way down the legs.

If a previous issue exists with the alignment of the spine, and there has been a history of low back problems, pregnancy will often aggravate the condition. Pregnancy can cause the spine to become misaligned to the point that it does not simply go back into place once the pregnancy is complete. This can make the tasks that become necessary once the child is born, such as carrying a baby on your front or back, breast-feeding and bending over to lift and pick things up, painfully difficult.


Prenatal Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic practitioners can provide safe and effective personalized care throughout your pregnancy and in the postpartum period. A thorough examination will determine the best treatment to address your discomfort and prepare the body for the height of pregnancy and childbirth. There are specialized adjustment methods to accommodate pregnancy. These treatments may reduce the need for pain medications throughout the delivery as well as help to reduce labor time. Follow up treatments can assist in realigning the body after the pregnancy, speeding the transition to a healthy post-pregnancy body.
