Prenatal Chiropractic Patients Get the Pelvic Floor in Shape with Clinical Pilates, Manhattan, New York

Doctors who specialize in prenatal chiropractic care are most concerned with supporting the healthiest and most advantageous conditions for pregnancy and childbirth. Doctors who earn Certifications and Diplomates from the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association are likely to have experience caring for three and even four generations of patients from the same family. What a labor of love!

If possible, the prenatal chiropractor even considers assessing preconception health as a top priority. That is, what steps can be taken to prepare the body from a fertility perspective? Additionally, what steps can be taken to support moms from a recovery perspective. After birth, moms dream of the stamina that allows them to focus primarily on nurturing. In addition to chiropractic care, another area of well-being to consider in the prenatal model is conditioning. Conditioning through specific prenatal exercise formats supports and prepares mothers for the physical demands of labor. Specific exercises to strengthen the pelvic floor also help set up moms to recover faster.

Prenatal chiropractors, Like Dr. Michael Magwood address this population’s needs with programs like IM=X Pilates workouts that follow the ACOG guidelines. He teaches formats that safely challenge women in their 2nd and 3rd trimesters. Essential guidance is necessary for this population, so a medical history is obtained along with the appropriate screening and consultation.

There are a number of benefits to clinically oriented prenatal pilates formats, particularly where chronic conditions of neck and back pain are concerned. Most medical doctors avoid commonly prescribed pain medications during pregnancy. In a more natural approach, moms who participate typically notice improved posture and stability of the core, increased strength and flexibility, injury rehabilitation, improved balance, restoration of natural movements and increased muscular coordination and control. This is the right approach to the easiest, safest delivery.
