Attending to the unique needs of expectant mothers is the goal of pregnancy chiropractic. Chiropractors are specially trained to tailor their techniques to help alleviate common pregnancy complaints and to protect both mother and child.
Pregnancy chiropractic is unique as expectant mother is carefully supported in order to provide superior comfort and to protect her and the baby from strain or injury. Many areas of the body are avoided during treatment to protect mother and child and extra attention is given to areas of the body that are particularly affected by pregnancy, like the feet and back. A pregnancy massage is not advised during the first trimester, but can provide welcome relief later on, especially during the last few months of pregnancy.
Approximately one-half of all women report experiencing some level of back pain during their pregnancy, causing some expecting mothers to feel that aches and pains are normal and to be expected when you're carrying a child.
However, the reality is that this doesn't have to be the case. The staff at Bay Pointe Chiropractic has helped many women in Commerce Twp experience a healthy and happy pregnancy.
Chiropractic care can often help make pregnancy more enjoyable by effectively treating misalignments creating by the growing fetus, thus creating a more comfortable pregnancy and delivery.
There are other advantages of engaging in chiropractic during pregnancy as well.
By treating subluxations and aligning the spine, the brain is better able to communicate with the rest of your body, which means more stable hormone levels, fewer headaches, less nausea, and more.
And It's Safe...Studies have found that chiropractic during pregnancy is both effective and safe, which means that expecting mothers can enjoy the benefits of chiropractic physically as well as mentally.
