Prenatal Chiropractic in Charlotte NC
Pregnant mothers are limited in taking medication for their back pain. Prenatal chiropractic care is a safe and helpful treatment in pregnancy aches and pains. An astonishing 50% of mothers to be share one common problem. They will have low back pain. As the baby grows, your belly grows. And in a healthy pregnancy, you will gain between 25 and 30 pounds. With the extra weight, you will find your balance point shifting. The result is increased strain on your lower back.
As your body changes throughout each term and your baby begins to grow, it becomes a challenge for your body to keep up with the changes during this time. This is why pregnant women experience back pain as often as they do. Prenatal chiropractic care during pregnancy is a safe and helpful treatment to relieve the pain many women feel during this time. At Beyond Wellness Chiropractic Center, P.C., our chiropractor uses special techniques to help reduce a pregnant woman’s pain without harming the baby.
Prenatal chiropractic care can safely be performed on the pelvic region where the body’s shifting takes place during this time. As your body makes hormones to help relax the pelvis and prepare the body for delivery, your hips will shift during this time causing pain. A chiropractic adjustment helps realign the pelvis to help reduce any interference, creating a healthier environment for the baby and a more enjoyable experience for you.
Many of our patients visit our office during their pregnancy when they begin to feel the aches and pains.
