There are many physiological changes occurring in a woman’s body during pregnancy, not to mention the creation of a delicate new life within. Chiropractic care during pregnancy is focused on caring for both the mother and her baby. Several pregnant women, who have undergone consistent chiropractic care, reported shorter and less painful labour with fewer complications and fewer interventions.
A common misconception, for example, is that back pain during pregnancy is normal. These symptoms are mistaken as “normal”, when the correct term is actually “common”. The nervous system helps all the parts of the body to communicate with each other. Therefore, keeping the spine aligned helps the entire body work more effectively and this is true throughout all stage of life and very important throughout the stages of pregnancy.
There are many potential benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy include: relief from upper and mid-back pain, neck pain, headaches and joint pain. “Other benefits may include an easier pregnancy and delivery with a reduced need for analgesics, shorter labour times, success in turning breech babies and a reduction in the possible need for a caesarean,” according to an article by the CAA (Chiropractors Association of Australia) back in 2010. Therefore, chiropractic care during pregnancy can help provide a variety of health benefits for women who are pregnant.
