LIFE itself is an absolute miracle. Many individuals do not understand the intricate details of how two half cells become one cell and from there, in a period of 9 months, we get a perfect human being that enters the world. His little heart starts beating at 24 days... Her eyes formed at 36 days... This miracle unfolds perfectly - unless there is interference.
At first glance most people don't see the connection between chiropractic care and pregnancy. However, there are four stages in which having an optimally working nervous system and structural support help both mother and child.
Pre-Conception: Chiropractic care prior to conception promotes a regular menstrual cycle and optimal uterine function. Some couples who thought they were infertile have been helped by restoring proper nerve supply to reproductive organs.
Pregnancy: About half of expectant mothers will develop low back pain during their pregnancy. Regular chiropractic care during pregnancy helps maintain balance, alignment and flexibility. Many report less morning sickness. When the baby is comfortable, he or she can assume the optimal birthing position.
Labor and Birth: Mothers who get chiropractic care seem to require less high-tech intervention. Many report shorter, less traumatic births. With proper nerve supply, well-timed contractions move the baby more easily through the birth canal.
Post Delivery: When your body tightens up the loose ligaments that developed during pregnancy, it is important to make sure your joints are aligned properly before your muscles return back to their pre-pregnancy state. You can relax knowing we use a light touch to be safe, comfortable and effective.
