A lot of people who get adjusted at Brilliant Life Chiropractic are pregnant, and there are good reasons for that. In fact, here are 4 main benefits to receiving chiropractic care during pregnancy (and after).
1) When you get adjusted, you are healthier. You feel better, your body works better, and your nerve system allows all of that to work together better. If you’re pregnant, getting adjusted will make sure that your developing fetus, your baby, is getting all the benefits of a healthier you, a healthier mom! When you’re healthy, your baby has a better chance of being healthy. Specifically, you will generally have less pain, greater stability, greater fitness, and an easier time getting around as your body changes in each stage.
Many women realize just how important their health really is when it comes to the health of their baby, and they embrace a more natural lifestyle. Chiropractic can be a big part of that.
2) Aligning the pelvis will make it easier for the baby to get into the correct position for labor and delivery. Using specific chiropractic techniques, we gently adjust the pelvis to create the greatest room in the uterus, which allows the baby to orient themselves properly. This helps to prevent or reverse a breach presentation, which can be a difficult complication during labor.
It is a gentle and noninvasive technique that doesn’t involve manipulating the baby in any way. Rather, the technique allows the pelvis to shift into a more natural alignment.
3) Reducing interventions during pregnancy and childbirth is high on the list of goals for many naturally minded mothers. They want to have as natural a birth as possible, and chiropractic is an important part of that process. Chiropractic has been shown to reduce the need for interventions such as episiotomy, epidurals, or caesarian section. Chiropractic care can help you to have the kind of birth that you want, on your terms.
4) After delivering a baby, many mothers feel pretty worn out and stressed. It is, after all, quite a ride! Getting adjusted during pregnancy and then after delivery can help moms bounce back more rapidly, feeling more like their old selves after the intense experience of birth. This will allow you to really settle into the role of motherhood, so you can bond with your baby. It’s also a good time to get the newborn baby checked, since it’s a rather traumatic process for them too! What better way to welcome them to Tacoma than by getting their nerve system fully functioning and helping them to develop at their absolute best.
