Chiropractic Care - During Pregnancy

Sometimes it may seem that aches and pains are synonymous with pregnancy. Backache and sciatica pain are just a few of the discomforts that accompany carrying children and although you can't completely prevent such pains, women can take measures to relieve some of the aches. One method to alleviate the painful side effects of pregnancy includes making regular visits to a chiropractor. During pregnancy, hormones are released to relax the muscles and ligaments of the body. This relaxing allows the uterus and other tissues to expand as necessary and likewise it makes it possible for the pelvic joints to loosen up in preparation for passage of the baby during delivery.

However, this relaxation of muscles and ligaments increases the probability that joints will misalign which then results in soreness. This looseness of the joints along with the oversized abdomen and extra weight that comes with pregnancy tends to throw women off balance. To compensate, they tend to pull their shoulders back and arch their necks.

The result of this new posture is a deeply curved lower back, strained muscles, and aches and discomfort. Many pregnant ladies also experience sciatic soreness. This occurs because the growing uterus applies pressure to the sciatic nerve causing a tingling and painful feeling in the lower back, buttocks, and legs.

The backache and sciatic pain may subside as the uterus grows and the fetus changes its position but in some cases the pain may remain throughout the entire pregnancy. Many can cope with the discomfort, but for some women the pain is so severe, daily activities become difficult or even impossible.

No matter what level of pain a woman feels, she can benefit from visits to the chiropractor. Many of these neuromuscular and biochemical problems that occur during pregnancy react favorably to chiropractic procedures.

But is chiropractic care safe for pregnant women? Many of us wonder this when seeking for alternatives to pain medications. The idea that chiropractic treatments are dangerous to the woman or the fetus during pregnancy is a misconception. Treatments practiced by a doctor that specializes in prenatal and postnatal chiropractics are gentle, safe, and noninvasive.

Chiropractors can give women gentle spinal adjustments to keep the pelvis and spine aligned properly which will in turn lessen the ache. They can also administer and give instruction of how to perform therapeutic exercises and stretches which will make the muscles affecting the spine stronger.

Chiropractors can also give beneficial soft tissue massages designed specifically for pregnant women. A massage can help reduce spinal stress and keep the mom-to-be more relaxed and flexible and more ready for the big labor day. Pregnant women can rest assured that receiving prenatal chiropractic care is safe for both themselves and their baby. It is a relatively common practice to be seen by a chiropractor during pregnancy and thus many insurance companies cover at least part of the cost.

All women should first check with their obstetrician to correctly identify the source of pain and rule out any other complications before seeing a chiropractor. The obstetrician may also be able to recommend doctors that specialize in prenatal chiropractics.

San Francisco chiropractic care practitioners are also known for their specialized non-invasive treatments for pregnant women. The massages and techniques not only solve the aches but also help in reducing stress. Is it good for your baby? To learn the answer, visit
