Pregnancy & Chiropractic Q & A

How can chiropractic services be helpful during pregnancy?

While pregnant, you’ll experience many changes both physically and emotionally. The services at Back at Health Chiropractic can help mothers and fathers with a number of treatments aimed to correct posture and alleviate the mental and physical strain of birthing.

What are these services?

First and foremost, posture correction is addressed to ensure proper blood flow and safety for the expectant mother. As the center of gravity begins to shift it’s crucial to practice correct posture. By executing proper posture the muscles in the lower back can do their job and support the mother as she carries her child. A mix of cryotherapy and heated massages can help promote blood flow and reduce swelling to any muscles that become inflamed during the pregnancy.

How can chiropractic treatment aid me outside of the doctors’ office?

One of the most important pieces of physical therapy and chiropractic therapy for that matter, is the continuation of exercises at home. Back to Health Chiropractic physicians, Dr. Griffin and Dr. De Sesa will teach proper techniques to both mother and father so that they can continue their practice of corrective exercises. Dad will benefit just as much as mom by sharing in the experience promoting mutual growth and development in healthy practice.

How will chiropractic treatment affect my newborn child?

There’s no evidence to suggest that chiropractic treatment will negatively affect the health of the baby. On the contrary, by improving the health and quality of life experienced by the mother, the child will also benefit. Of course it’s important to refer to your health care providers and physicians to identify any particular health needs that may lead to complications. Back to Health Chiropractic is here to lend support in any way it can for you and your new bundle of joy. Your health and safety will always be their number one priority.
