Prenatal Chiropractic Care at Absolute Balance Chiropractic
Pregnancy can be a bit overwhelming at times, not only from the emotional and logistic standpoints but also physically. As your body changes it's normal to struggle with aches, pains, and other musculoskeletal issues. Maintaining an optimal spinal alignment during this time is a smart choice, not just for you but also for your unborn child. That's why you should consider pursuing prenatal chiropractic care here at absolute Balance Chiropractic in Bettendorf IA.
Receiving Chiropractic Care While Pregnant
There's no getting around the fact that your body must change dramatically while it's bringing a new baby to term. The abdomen must expand to accommodate the enlarging fetus, and this alters your alignment and posture into a relatively unnatural position. As you find yourself leaning backward, you may find that you're suffering from a muscular strain in the neck (which also causes headaches) and lower back. At the same time, pinched nerves in the spinal column can create issues such as sciatica. impaired nerve function may aggravate circulatory sluggishness, hormonal swings, and other discomforts.
Prenatal chiropractic care can ease your symptoms without the worries posed by painkillers -- and when performed with the proper care and expertise, it's completely safe for mother and baby alike. Our Bettendorf chiropractor, Dr. Knight, can make use of a specialized table to ensure your comfort and support, even when lying down for adjustment sessions. Gentle chiropractic techniques can correct alignment errors, reducing imbalances, muscular strain, and nerve impingement (with all of its associated symptoms) as a result. We can combine chiropractic adjustments with massage and other natural techniques for easing discomfort and tension.
Healthier Alignment for a Healthier Birth
as you can see, prenatal chiropractic care can make your pregnancy a lot more comfortable. But did you know that it can actually improve your odds of having a normal, uncomplicated delivery? That's because sacral and pelvic misalignments (a common side effect of the ligaments loosening during pregnancy) can make it more difficult for your baby to turn upside-down in the womb -- a necessity for head-first delivery. Our ability to administer careful chiropractic adjustments in this area can help this reorientation occur more easily, paving the way for a healthy natural birth as opposed to a C-section or other medical intervention.
