Pregnancy Chiropractic

Pregnancy chiropractic care in Lawrence, KS, from Dr. Michael Stuart of Stuart Chiropractic Health Center, can help alleviate pregnancy discomfort so you can feel less worried about your delivery.

Below are just a few reasons why it's so essential for all pregnant women to receive regular chiropractic treatment during their pregnancy.

Pain Relief

Many pregnant women experience back and pelvic pains as their bodies adjust during pregnancy. For example, their bodies produce the hormone relaxin, which loosens ligaments and joints throughout their pelvic area. This can cause back discomfort as well as muscle ache.

Chiropractic care often provides relief from these discomforts. It has been known to reduce back pain associated with pregnancy and headaches.

Additionally, needleless acupuncture provided by the Stuart Chiropractic Health Center may help with other conditions during pregnancy, such as heartburn, leg swelling, and carpal tunnel syndrome.

Increased Mobility

Many pregnant women feel pain and stiffness as their bodies expand and change during their pregnancies. This could be caused by extra weight, altered posture, or the release of the relaxin hormone.

Gentle chiropractic adjustments for pregnant women can help avoid or alleviate certain conditions and increase mobility. In addition, keeping the spine and pelvis aligned will make it simpler for the body to function optimally.

Better Sleep

Chiropractic can significantly assist if you're struggling with pain and discomfort that prevents you from getting adequate rest at night. 

Dr. Stuart may suggest a more comfortable sleeping position, postural exercises, and a supportive mattress to enhance your nightly experience.

Consider pregnancy chiropractic in Lawrence, KS, if you have difficulty sleeping.

Reduced Edema

Gentle chiropractic adjustments during pregnancy are safe and help alleviate uncomfortable symptoms like sore backs and weak pelvic floors. Additionally, they reduce swelling by flushing out extra fluids from the body.

Women who seek prenatal care from their chiropractor enjoy improved overall health, including enhanced immune system function. This may reduce the risk of developing pregnancy-related illnesses like gestational diabetes and preeclampsia.

Enhanced Birthing Experience

During pregnancy, weight gain, altered posture, hormonal shifts, and other factors may cause spinal misalignments that cause pain throughout various parts of the body.

One of the primary advantages of chiropractic treatment during pregnancy is its capacity to enhance a woman's birth experience. 

Chiropractic care can help eliminate stress and worry during labor and delivery and reduce complications related to breech or posterior presentations by creating pelvic balance and allowing your baby to develop throughout pregnancy.
