Our bodies are constantly changing. From birth to death there’s never a day that our bodies aren’t affected. Needless to say, when a woman is carrying a child there are even more changes to take into consideration. One thing that will help is chiropractic care. Dr. Marshall and your chiropractor Tulsa professionals are ready to assist during this time where wellness is vital.

Juggling a life and a family is not always easy. However, it should be pain free. It is widely accepted that routine care by a chiropractor during pregnancy has many benefits. Regular adjustments can help balance your body. Which in turn allows you the freedom and ability to balance your life.

There are many reasons why an expectant mother would want to be seen by a chiropractor. The most common conditions treated are pregnancy-related sciatica or pelvic pain. Simple tasks like walking, sitting or even sleeping can be uncomfortable at certain times during pregnancy. After giving birth many new mothers experience middle back pain. This is a common occurrence in postnatal mothers due to breast feeding, bottle feeding or just rocking babies to sleep.

There are many potential benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy which may include:

Maintaining a healthier pregnancy

Pelvic misalignment may reduce the amount of room available for the developing baby. This restriction is called intrauterine constraint. However, chiropractic adjustments will realign the pelvis and hopefully relieve pain and pressure for the baby and for mom.

Controlling symptoms of nausea

It is likely that due to the changes occurring in your body that there are some pinched nerves. If nausea and vomiting are associated in part by out-of-place vertebrae, an adjustment can help remedy the problem.

Reduction of time in labor and delivery

Chiropractic adjustments help influence supporting muscles and ligaments around the womb. This allows for the ideal shape of the space in the pelvis. This leads to a much easier labor and delivery.

Prevention of potential cesarean delivery

Misalignment of the pelvis may make it difficult for the baby to get into the optimal position for delivery. This may affect the mother’s ability to have a natural, non-invasive birth. Focusing on relieving the tightness in the round ligaments will allow the baby to shift comfortably. Once the baby can move freely in the womb he or she may then get into proper position for delivery.

Pelvic pain and changes

Close to the end of the pregnancy, the pelvic girdle begins to open up in preparation of delivery. Due to this expansion the mother-to-be can experience pain and discomfort. Chiropractic adjustments can help to alleviate this pain as well as help the prevention of back labor.

Postural Adaptations

As your body adjusts to accommodate for the growing baby, your posture is also affected. Muscles that help keep our body upright and balanced are called ‘Tonic Muscles’. During pregnancy these muscles have to work overtime and many times will weaken other muscles in the body. This can lead to hunched shoulders, pelvic tilt, and less core strength. One small change then affects the entire body. Regular adjustments can help lessen the strain put on other muscle groups as well as help maintain balance in the expecting mother’s body.
