Benefits of Prenatal Care at Crystal Springs Chiropractic
Women go through various painful physical changes during pregnancy. Many women suffer from back and hip pain, body aches, and increased stress and pressure on the muscles, joints, and nerves. Chiropractic care during pregnancy is a great and natural way to alleviate the aches and pains associated with pregnancy. At Crystal Springs Chiropractic, we provide prenatal chiropractic care for women in and around the San Mateo area. Learn more about why you should consider visiting a pregnancy chiropractor.
Reduce Back and Hip Pain
Most women suffer from lower back pain during pregnancy because of the increased weight in the belly. This causes posture changes that put increased pressure on the spine and muscles of the back. Consistent chiropractic treatment helps correct spinal misalignments, lower back muscle tension, and improve posture. Chiropractic visits are also a great alternative to medication.
Improved Nervous System Function
Changes to the spine and posture impact the overall function of the nervous and immune systems. You'll also be more vulnerable to getting sick with compromised systems. Chiropractic care establishes better overall health to improve brain function. We will also suggest other nutritional and lifestyle changes to make you as healthy as possible during pregnancy.
Ease Pregnancy Symptoms
Symptoms such as morning sickness, acid reflux, insomnia, and swelling are common with pregnancy. Chiropractic care works to realign the spinal column, providing optimal communication between the nervous system and the rest of the body. A well-functioning nervous system coordinates your body better, helping to reduce the severity and frequency of pregnancy-related symptoms.
Chiropractic visits can help with proper pelvic alignment and positioning of the baby to decrease labor time and reduce pain. Our chiropractors use different techniques to help move babies out of breech positions. We also help align the pelvic muscles, reducing restrictions during delivery. As a result, Cesarean (C-section) deliveries are less likely to occur with regular chiropractic visits.
