Back pain may be just one of the many symptoms you experience during pregnancy, but it can feel debilitating. Of course, pregnant women are limited when it comes to what they should use for pain relief. Stroud Chiropractic in Archdale, North Carolina, offers free consultations and same-day appointments for pregnant women who want to treat back pain in an entirely natural, safe way.
Here are three potential benefits of chiropractic care for pregnant women:
- Immediate Pain Relief: Lower back pain is common during pregnancy, but chiropractic care provides immediate relief for many women. Various studies have indicated chiropractic adjustments relieve lower back pain in pregnant women with no negative side effects.
- Reduction Of Intrauterine Constraint: Intrauterine constraint is any force outside of the developing fetus that obstructs its natural movements; it can cause congenital hip deformity, craniostenosis, and breech presentation. There is a special chiropractic technique called the Webster Technique that actually relieves musculoskeletal conditions that might otherwise lead to intrauterine constraint.
- Shorter Labor Times: A number of studies have indicated that with regular chiropractic care, women actually experience shorter labor times. In a study titled “The Effect of Chiropractic Treatment on Pregnancy and Labor,” Dr. Joan Fallon found labor duration was reduced by 24% for first-time moms who had chiropractic care, and 39% for women who had given birth previously.
Most people already know the effects that chiropractic care has on back pain, but many pregnant women are surprised to learn about the other benefits.
