Prenatal chiropractic care in Tampa can be quite helpful during all stages of pregnancy. This period of rapid weight gain, hormonal changes, laxity of connective ligaments, and shifting of weight-bearing structures causes many pregnant women to experience pain or discomfort. More and more mothers are discovering the many benefits associated with chiropractic care throughout pregnancy.
Prenatal chiropractic provides safe and effective treatment of pregnancy aches and pains including low back pain, headaches, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, plantar fasciitis, symphysis pubis dysfunction (SPD), and pelvic pain.
According to the American Pregnancy Association, the other benefits of regular chiropractic care include:
- Maintaining a healthier pregnancy
- Controlling symptoms of nausea
- Reducing labor and delivery time
- Relieving back, neck, or joint pain
- Prevent a potential cesarean delivery
Chiropractic adjustments of the spine and pelvis help to maintain a healthier and more comfortable pregnancy and encourage the baby to assume the optimal position for birth. Women who experience breech or transverse positioning of the baby can be helped with Chiropractic. The Webster Technique is a specific analysis of the pelvis for pregnant women to identify pelvic misalignment and round ligament tension. Chiropractic care and appropriate exercise recommendations during pregnancy can promote the optimal position for baby, reduce the time of labor and delivery, and reduce the likelihood of interventions during delivery.
