At Active Family Wellness in Arlington, Texas, women can begin or continue chiropractic care during pregnancy. This is a rewarding phase of a woman’s life, but it can also be a time of physical challenges. Chiropractic pregnancy care can help women remain healthy and well as they prepare for a new addition.
Pregnancy places an enormous amount of strain on a woman’s body. That can lead to problems with spinal alignment, as well as issues in other joints or soft tissues. These changes come on over a very short period of time, but leave some women with lasting physical imbalances. Seeking chiropractic pregnancy care can help women remain healthy throughout the course of their pregnancy and beyond. That can help make it easier to focus on caring for a new baby during those first few months, which can be a challenge in and of itself.
During the course of a woman’s pregnancy, it is not uncommon for there to be changes in the alignment of their pelvis. That can reduce the volume of space that is available for fetal development, a problem that is known as uterine constraint. It can also make it difficult for the baby to move into an optimal birthing position. Chiropractic care can improve a woman’s pelvic balance, which can help make pregnancy easier. There is research that suggests that certain chiropractic techniques can even reduce the risk of breech birth positioning.
Chiropractic care is never a one-size-fits-all proposition. Chiropractors begin each professional relationship with a full physical examination and a comprehensive health history. That information allows the practitioner to create a customized treatment plan to address each patient’s particular set of needs and goals. All chiropractors receive special training on adjusting pregnant women. They make use of special tools and techniques geared toward providing results while also accommodating the changes that pregnancy brings to a woman’s body. There is plenty of research that supports the benefits of chiropractic care before, during and after pregnancy.
