You’re pregnant (or planning to be in the near future)! Now what? You’re probably thinking about how to decorate the nursery, planning a baby shower, and watching your health extremely closely.
Something many expecting mothers don’t realize is that prenatal chiropractic care is a great option to improve your health and the health of your soon-to-be newborn. At Danubio Chiropractic Offices in Peabody MA, Dr. Danubio highly recommends prenatal chiropractic care for a variety of reasons.
During pregnancy, your body is a hormone-producing machine, and many of these hormones are meant to relax not only your nerves but also your muscles, joints and ligaments in order to prepare you for labor. As a result other changes occur, such as your spine and pelvic joints going out of alignment. Many expecting mothers also suffer from lower back pain as they enter their second and third trimester due to the weight of their baby.
Chiropractic care can help reduce back pain by realigning the spine and pelvic bones to ensure for a safer, more manageable delivery. The American Pregnancy Association has even gone so far as to state that gentle back manipulations can reduce the chance of needing a cesarean section or having a breech delivery.
