During pregnancy, a woman's body endures many changes and stresses as she prepares to bring a new life into the world. The body starts producing the hormone that loosens up your joints and ligaments to allow for an easier delivery through the birth canal. With this excess hormone, however, your joints can become too flexible, causing them to be less supportive and causing you to become more susceptible to injury.
Back pain, especially in the lower back, is a large complaint among pregnant women as the lumbar spine starts to curve more to account for the growing baby. Your body also tends to put on more weight to help support the baby. This weight gain places extra strain on your joints. Receiving prenatal chiropractic adjustments from Hiller Chiropractic helps relieve the pain and discomfort during all stages of your pregnancy.
What To Expect From A Prenatal Chiropractic Adjustment
Whether it's your first child or not, pregnancy affects every woman differently. Because of this, we typically perform a neuromuscular and orthopedic examination and go over your medical history and symptoms to determine the best type of adjustment for you. Our friendly staff provides a relaxed environment and expert skills to enhance the health and wellness of you and your baby. Our adjustments are focused on specific areas that are inflamed, misaligned, or causing you pain.
Prenatal chiropractic adjustments can be combined with our prenatal massage therapy for the most effective results. Although all of our adjustments and massage therapies are very safe for women throughout all three trimesters, we recommend contacting your OB/GYN before receiving any treatment to ensure you aren't a high risk pregnancy.
