How Do Chiropractic Adjustments During Pregnancy Work?, Manhattan, New York

Pregnancy is a beautiful time in a woman’s life, but it can often come with a lot of discomfort. A prenatal chiropractor can help reduce pain and improve the body’s movements. Below is a guide on how a chiropractic adjustment can work for pregnant patients and potentially reduce some of the everyday aches of pregnancy.

Understanding Prenatal Chiropractic Adjustment

How Does It Work?

chiropractorA chiropractic adjustment is the application of pressure to a patient’s spine or other parts of their body to alleviate pain, correct alignment, and improve the way their body moves. A prenatal chiropractor will provide an adjustable table to accommodate a pregnant woman’s growing belly and will only use techniques that don’t put pressure on the abdomen. In addition to adjustment, a chiropractor can also show you effective stretches for easing tension in your joints that can be caused by a hormonal increase during pregnancy.

How Does Chiropractic Adjustment Benefit a Pregnant Patient?

There are many benefits to prenatal chiropractic care, most of which involve relieving common pains associated with pregnancy. Chiropractic care can reduce nausea through pressure point massage and properly adjust your posture as your center of gravity shifts. When pregnant, the increased curvature of your back, combined with a growing abdomen, can result in spinal misalignment. A prenatal chiropractor can help realign your spine or your joints, promoting whole-body health during your pregnancy. Chiropractic adjustment can also reorient your pelvis, which can relax the surrounding muscles and may even help babies in breech position turn naturally, causing an easier and faster labor experience.
