Prenatal Chiropractic Care in West Hartford, CT
Chiropractic care is focused on creating balance and alignment in the body’s musculoskeletal structure in order to maintain health and reduce pain and injury. This type of full body maintenance is especially important when expecting mothers are not only trying to keep themselves healthy, they are supporting and nurturing new life.
What is Prenatal Chiropractic Care?
Prenatal chiropractic helps to strengthen the back muscles, joints, immune system and other body functions that are being heavily taxed during the cycle of pregnancy. It also serves to help alleviate some of the pain, aches and extra pressure on the body that pregnant women often feel during this special time.
How Does Seeing a Chiropractor Help with My Pregnancy?
In addition to fortifying the body, chiropractic care during pregnancy is very beneficial for making the actual process of giving birth less stressful and intimidating. Much like Lamaze classes help to promote calmness and reminders to breathe during labor and delivery, regular chiropractic care during pregnancy helps prepare the body to better withstand the experience of contractions and all of the sensations and reactions that go along with it.
In fact, chiropractic care has been known to reduce the amount of time women spend in labor and it has also been successful in helping to avoid certain pregnancy complications, such as breech births.
Is Seeing a Chiropractor Safe During My Pregnancy?
One of the most beneficial aspects of visiting a chiropractor, especially for pregnant women, is that it is pain-relieving and health supporting treatment that doesn’t use drugs or invasive surgeries. Chiropractic care is generally considered safe for women during pregnancy, but as with any treatment you receive during this delicate time, you should always consult with your primary care physician before making an appointment.
