Pregnancy is such an exciting time in a women’s life. The nervous system controls all the processes within the body and must work even harder during pregnancy. It is the job of the chiropractor to make sure that system is working at it’s optimal level. Detecting and freeing subluxations in the women’s spine will help to allow the nervous system to work as it is intended to.

The nervous system is the master communication system to all the body systems including the reproductive system. Keeping the spine in proper alignment helps the entire body work more effectively.

Why would you chosoe to get chiropractic care during pregnancy?

Pregnancy has physiological and endocrinological changes that occur in order to create and environment for the developing baby. The following changes could alter the alignment of the spine and or joints:

  • A protruding abdomen and increased curve of the lower back
  • Pelvic changes
  • Postural adaptations

Establishing pelvic balance and alignment is another reason chiropractic care is important during pregnancy. When the pelvis is misaligned it may reduce the amount of room available for the developing baby. This restriction of the pelvis is called intrauterine constraint. A misaligned pelvis may also make it difficult for the baby to get into the best position for delivery.
