When preparing for the baby and delivery there are physiological and endocrine changes that can happen. These include postural adaptations, increased back curve and protruding abdomen, and pelvic changes. Sciatica is also a common pregnancy problem. Find out what triggers sciatica and how can you relieve the pain.
It is absolutely essential that the pelvis is in the proper alignment not only for delivery but also so there is ample amount of room for the developing baby. If there is intrauterine constraint, this may prevent the mother from having a non-invasive natural delivery. The potential benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy include:
- Maintaining a higher level of comfort for both mother and baby
- Controlling nausea
- Promote a more natural, faster labor and delivery
- Provide relief of back, neck, joint, and nerve pain
- Prevent potential complications associated with spinal and joint misalignment
