- Uncontrolled Hormones
- Swollen Ankles
This is a list of condition normally seen during pregnancy. So it is something you need to get used to for the next several months because there is really nothing you can do about it.
Wrong. These are typical symptoms of pregnancy, but the intensity and in some cases the presence of these symptoms will diminish under chiropractic care. Here are a few more reasons soon-to-be-mothers in Wallingford should seek chiropractic care.
As we have established throughout our website pages and posts, the nervous system controls your body, all of it. When you become pregnant, your nervous system will adapt to the changes brought about by this little human being growing inside of you. The new life you carry does what it needs to to preserve its health, often at your expense. This is what causes the deficiencies within your body and you are left to adapt.
The presence of vertebral subluxation in your body will result in the inability of normal communication and will result in the following:
Subluxation causes body imbalance and a subluxation at your atlas will cause you to tilt your head to one side. Now, your brain needs to make an adjustment because it has a reflex that keeps your eyes level to the horizon. In turn, this causes your lower cervical spine to bend the opposite direction of your head tilt. In fact, a subluxation at your atlas will cause imbalance throughout your body, putting undue pressure on joints and creating an unevenly aligned pelvis during pregnancy that can be quite painful. When your body is out of alignment, you have several compensations traveling down your spine. The muscles on both sides of your spine become very tight and inflammatory effects take place.
When your body is out of alignment, you have several compensations traveling down your spine. The muscles on both sides of your spine become very tight and inflammatory effects take place. These negative changes in your body add stress to the nerves exiting your spinal column, which lead to all parts of your body including organs, muscles, glands and blood vessels. If not treated, the nerve stress will lead to problems throughout your body.
In short, regular chiropractic treatments are safe and will help relieve the symptoms associated with pregnancy.
