What Is Prenatal Chiropractic?
Prenatal chiropractic is chiropractic care provided to expectant mothers while they are pregnant. Prenatal chiropractic requires that a chiropractor have specialized training in how to treat expectant mothers during each trimester. Our team at Parrish Chiropractic can provide you with this specialized service.
Prenatal chiropractic is similar to traditional chiropractic in many ways. Spinal adjustments will be a major part of treatment. However, adjustments made during pregnancy must be modified in certain ways in order to keep both mother and baby safe.
Prenatal chiropractic also provides mothers with other types of treatment which can be beneficial. These treatments can include massage therapy, nutritional counseling, and stretching and strengthening exercises which can aid childbirth.
Why Do I Need Prenatal Chiropractic?
Although pregnancy brings with it many aches and pains, expectant mothers are very limited with the medication they can take for these issues. Some mothers cannot take any type of pain medication while pregnant. It is important to find alternative treatment options for these types of problems. Prenatal chiropractic helps alleviate many of these issues through regular treatment. The adjustments, stretches, and exercises your chiropractor can provide will help your body adjust slowly to the new strain it is under.
By using regular chiropractic care, a woman can better prepare her body for the physically demanding job of childbirth. There are many muscles and ligaments involved during the birthing process. When these muscles and ligaments are not properly prepared for childbirth, additional pain and a longer recovery time for the mom can be created. Your chiropractor will be able to slowly prepare your body for birth. This preparation will also make the postpartum recovery time a bit easier as well.
Is Prenatal Chiropractic Safe?
Prenatal chiropractic care is perfectly safe when performed by a trained professional. Remember, a chiropractor needs to be trained in prenatal chiropractic treatment. Our facility provides specialized tables to accommodate the mother's growing belly comfortably during a session. Every effort will be made to ensure that you are comfortable and well cared for at Parrish Chiropractic.
