How Chiropractic Care can be Beneficial during Pregnancy

Everyone likes to talk about the beautiful “pregnancy glow” that some women have during their pregnancies. While pregnancy is a beautiful, natural and extremely honorable gift, it can come with some down sides. For instance, the alluring pregnancy glow can also mean that your pores are over-infused with keratin, clogging up your skin and leaving you with breakouts and inflammation. The truth of the matter is, pregnancy isn’t always glamorous. Some women really struggle during their pregnancy, even though society tells us that we should be glowing. At the offices of Dr. Keren H. Gomez, we want all pregnant women to come as they are. We offer chiropractic care that can be extremely beneficial during pregnancy.

Back Pain

One of the most common complaints during pregnancy happens to be back pain. One study showed that over 50% of women experience back pain to some degree while pregnant. So why is that? As your abdomen protrudes, your back begins to curve. An increase in the curvature of your back can lead to a misaligned spine and joints. Chiropractic care works to correct those misalignments and alleviate that pressure on your back. If you have back pain during pregnancy and you are looking for pain relief, chiropractic care is a safe and natural way to heal your body and alleviate your aches and pains.

Pelvis Alignment

Not only does chiropractic care help during pregnancy, it can aid in the actual delivery of your sweet baby! A misaligned pelvis is known for restricting the amount of space available for the baby to properly develop. It also makes a vaginal delivery a lot more dangerous. Patients have noted babies in the breech or posterior position when their pelvis is misaligned. By re-centering and aligning your body through chiropractic care, we can help ease the dangers of a misaligned pelvis and even help to reduce the length of time you are in labor!

There are so many benefits to chiropractic care during pregnancy that it seems essential. Chiropractic care is also known to help reduce pregnancy symptoms like nausea and hyperemesis. It is also known for keeping you more comfortable throughout your gestation. If you are thinking about chiropractic care during pregnancy, call the offices of Dr. Keren H.
