Is Chiropractic Care Safe During Pregnancy?
Pregnancy is a transitional life stage in which many changes occur. Your body, mind, home and relationships will all adjust when you welcome your new baby into the world. Prior to the arrival of your child, your body makes the most adjustments as you protect and care for your growing baby. The health team at Century Center Chiropractic congratulates you on your pregnancy and wants to help you understand the ways in which chiropractic care is safe and helpful during pregnancy. Our Atlanta chiropractor, Dr. Jared Simon invites you to our care center for a complete evaluation if you have never received chiropractic care before. If you are already a client of ours, let us assure you that your care can continue and will provide relief for many of your pregnancy symptoms.
Pregnancy and Chiropractic Services
The excitement of pregnancy often outweighs the physical changes that may bring you discomfort. As your belly grows, your spine and core muscles are challenged to support the increased weight. As a result, you may feel back pain and weakness, sleeping may be uncomfortable and you also may find pain that extends into your hips and legs. This discomfort is caused by a spine that is strained and Dr. Simon alleviates this pressure through gentle adjustments.
Through manual adjustments that gently slide your vertebrae into a more comfortable alignment, Dr. Simon reduces pressure on nerves so your pain decreases. After an alignment, you also feel increased mobility and a restored energy level. This is because your body is operated more efficiently and allowing circulation to flow throughout it. Chiropractic adjustments are non-invasive and medication free. You do not have to fear any side effects to your child. Instead, you experience natural healing relief that uses your body's own ability to restore itself.
Benefits of Pregnancy Chiropractic Care
With consistent chiropractic care during pregnancy, you will notice an improvement in your sleep. Instead of being uncomfortable and tossing and turning, you are able to settle into a comfortable position and get the rest you need. In addition, you may also feel a decrease in the swelling of your feet and legs.
Dr. Simon positions your body to function at its best and with improved circulation, your body is able to remove the excess water and toxins that may otherwise settle into your legs. As your pregnancy progresses, Dr. Simon changes the way he adjusts your spine so you do not have to lie face down. You may be on your side or sitting up, depending on your adjustment needs. Dr. Simon also pays close attention to the position of your pelvis to eliminate difficult births and prepare your body for the birthing process.
