As baby grows, the weight-bearing changes on mom can cause significant neck and back discomfort. As critical body changes occur, pregnant women are at greater risk of injury. That’s why it’s important to work with a chiropractor during this time of joy to get safe, appropriate treatment and prenatal care. At Bass Chiropractic, we provide relief for pregnant women in West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, and the greater Los Angeles area.
Approximately 50 percent of all pregnant women suffer lower back and neck pain during pregnancy. The sudden weight gain puts a tremendous strain on the spine and other changes are sources of physical stress. That’s because the growing infant is shifting your center of gravity and mom will often experience the following symptoms.
These and other uncomfortable aspects of pregnancy can be managed and minimized through a prenatal chiropractic regime designed to help maintain the body’s natural alignments. A misaligned spine can lead to serious injury during pregnancy and delivery complications. Studies indicate that women who go through pregnancy misaligned are more prone to complications during childbirth. It stands to reason that a healthy, properly balanced body can best endure labor and delivery. Women who participate in chiropractic care during the third trimester were found to deliver more comfortably and required less pain medications. Natural birth remains a goal for many expectant mothers and chiropractic health measures are helpful in reducing the use of painkillers.
The Webster Technique remains one of the most beneficial for pregnant women. It helps to re-balance the pelvic region through a series of chiropractic adjustments and relaxation measures.
Ligaments and joints in the pelvic region can become tight due to increased pregnancy pressure. This condition can impede the unborn child enjoying optimal position and make delivery difficult. The Webster Technique was designed specifically to improve child birth and is widely considered beneficial.
If you are an expectant mother, it’s important to consult with an experienced chiropractor about individualized care during pregnancy.
