Chiropractic And Pregnancy

Pregnancy is a beautiful thing, and the ability of a woman to bring a baby into the world has to be one of the greatest wonders you can think of. While it is an exciting time, it can also be very exhausting as pregnancy puts a lot of strain on your body that can cause pain in your back and hips. The pelvic changes and protruding abdomen that come with pregnancy can cause a misaligned spine or joints. The good news is that we have chiropractors that are well trained in providing excellent chiropractic care to pregnant women. These sessions have gone a long way in helping mothers feel better during pregnancy.

As long as qualified chiropractors do it, chiropractic care is safe for all regardless of age or pregnancy status. Murfreesboro chiropractors have been well trained to offer chiropractic care to pregnant women. Receiving chiropractic care can help establish pelvic balance and alignment, which will reduce the restriction called intrauterine constraint and give the baby enough space while you are pregnant. We offer the best chiropractic care that will help you maintain a healthier pregnancy, relieve any back, neck, or joint pain, and even reduce the time of labor and delivery.

Tips You Can Follow

We play a huge role in helping pregnant mothers feel healthy and relieved from pain, but there are many tips you can follow that can contribute. 

Try not to pick heavy objects, but when you have to, please do it right. You have the responsibility of protecting your lower back from strain by bending your knee whenever you pick up heavy objects. 

You can try participating in gentle exercises that will get your body moving and your blood flowing. There are many good exercise options for pregnant women, including taking a walk and swimming. Don’t continue with any exercise that makes you feel weak or dizzy. When you want to sleep, putting a pillow in between your legs while you lie on the side can make a lot of difference.

During your pregnancy, you might want to consider opting for flat shoes. Flat shoes are better for pregnancy because it prevents injury and supports your weight better.

Finally, remember to get regular adjustments from us to maintain a healthy skeletal structure and keep your body in shape. We believe in offering the best treatments that will consistently make you feel healthy and well.
