How Does Prenatal Chiropractic Help?
A woman’s body is designed for childbirth, however, sometimes issues arise. Whether it be a pain in your lower back, constipation, faintness, indigestion, or even morning sickness, the chiropractors at The Balanced Atlas can offer drug-free relief for your symptoms. We focus on the NUCCA style of chiropractic care, finding the root cause of issues not just fixing the symptoms.
By using spinal manipulation techniques, we can help align your pelvis and spine to allow a growing fetus the room it needs to develop. Pelvic balance can be maintained by regular visits to the prenatal chiropractic facility. Other benefits from regularly visiting your chiropractor during your pregnancy include:
- More energy
- Relaxed muscles
- Improved immune system
- Improved digestive system and
- Reduced chronic or acute pain.
What Effects Does Chiropractic Care Have On My Baby?
Once your spine and pelvis are correctly aligned, your baby will have more room to move and grow, however, there are other benefits. Correct alignment also helps the baby move into the correct birth position, reducing the chance of the baby being in a breech or posterior position, leading to a longer and potentially more complicated delivery.
