Why Chiropractic during pregnancy?

Why Chiropractic during pregnancy?

So you’re pregnant and you have low back and hip pain. You are not sure what your choices may be so you ask your birthing professional about your options. They respond by offering some home care options of a warm bath and stretching or maybe some Tylenol. They then ask if you’d like a prescription for Physical Therapy.

Back pain during pregnancy

Back pain during pregnancy

One of the most common complaints during pregnancy is back pain. I often hear pregnant women say “my back hurts, but I guess that just comes with the territory, right?” Wrong. It doesn’t have to be that way. Studies have shown that around 85% of pregnant women experience back pain, but less than half of those seek care or treatment. There could be many reasons why, but it is clear to me that most simply don’t know that there is treatment available. In my professional experience women who seek chiropractic care to manage low back pain and other complaints are happier with their pregnancy, better understand the changes occuring in the body, and feel more in control of what is happening with their body. Studies also support this showing that 84% of pregnant women who utilize chiropractic care report relief from back pain. Those patients who receive chiropractic care throughout pregnancy (at least once a month) report back to me that their labor and delivery seemed uncomplicated and “easier”...

Maternity Care

Maternity Care

Studies have shown that between 67-85% of pregnant women experience back pain, but less than half of those seek care.  Many pregnant women are not aware that chiropractic can help during and after pregnancy or simply think that this pain is just part of pregnancy and must be endured.  Chiropractic care for pregnant women is safe when performed by a licensed trained chiropractor.  Not only can chiropractic care decrease pain and discomfort before, during,a nd following delivery, but can also improve function for the mother and improve chances for the labor and delivery to proceed without complication.  But the benefits do not stop there.  Chiropractic can also help increase recovery rate after delivery and provide additional support and education for a new mother and her baby.  There is treatment available for the aches and pains of pregnancy.  Call Family Chiropractic & Wellness to schedule an appointment or complimentary consultation today....
