Chiropractic care in Murfreesboro can help in many ways if you are pregnant

Chiropractic help during Pregnancy

In the United States, about 6 million children are born each year, and over 14% of these deliveries are complicated. So, not only is labor excruciating but there are also risks to be aware of. Exercise, appropriate nutrition, supplements, and chiropractic care at our Murfreesboro chiropractic office are effective ways to reduce these risks. Through this, we can help pregnant women have safe deliveries.

A woman’s body undergoes many changes during pregnancy

When a woman is pregnant, her body undergoes immediate modifications. All of these modifications are intended to help the woman’s burgeoning life. As lovely as it is, pregnancy can bring a certain amount of discomfort or suffering for the mother. Morning sickness is extremely common throughout the first trimester. Meanwhile, the increase in hormone levels and the expansion of the placenta lead to this.

The liver is working much harder due to the severe rise in hormone levels and the expansion of the placenta, which can cause a lot of stress on the organ. We will endeavor to minimize any stress on the neurological system and optimize the function of the liver, compensating for its increased workload by obtaining care at Murfreesboro Advanced Chiropractic. 

Headaches are another common pregnancy symptom during the first trimester, but they can continue the entire pregnancy. There are several potential causes for headaches, including misalignment(s) in the neck and upper back, dehydration, stress, and sugar and caffeine withdrawal. These headaches can be considerably decreased or avoided with chiropractic adjustments, good nutrition, and a healthy sleep cycle. 

The baby’s weight begins to show during the second trimester, and the mother’s body has been enduring physical modifications to accommodate this weight. If you already have spinal misalignments, a pregnancy might increase the symptoms, resulting in headaches, acid reflux, constipation, diarrhea, or pain. The pelvis shifts forward throughout pregnancy, affecting the lower back curve. This is expected, but if you already have a misalignment in your lower back or spine, it could cause significant pain and consequences. 

When a woman goes into labor, the actual benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy become apparent. 10–12 hours is the average length of labor. Moms who receive chiropractic care for the first time should expect a 24 percent reduction in labor time, while mothers who have already had children can expect a 39 percent reduction in labor time. Most significantly, women who have been receiving regular care are less likely to require medicines during birth because their bodies have been better prepared for the event.
