Pregnant Women Getting Treatment
“WHAT DOES A PREGNANT WOMAN DO ABOUT GETTING ADJUSTED?”
Here’s something a lot of people don’t know about being pregnant and getting adjusted.
During pregnancy a woman’s body produces hormones to relax her ligaments; without these, a woman’s baby's head would never be able to fit through her pelvis.
But those hormones, combined with a woman’s gorgeously swollen belly, can leave her loose-limbed, sway-backed, and unusually clumsy, due to a rapidly lowering center of gravity (Look out below!).
All of this can do quite a number on a woman’s spine.
Chiropractic care may be able to undo much of this damage and get a woman’s lower body in proper alignment for an easier birth.
Getting adjusted with chiropractic adjustments may reduce the likelihood of miscarriage, control morning sickness, and lower a woman’s risk of pre-term delivery.
As a practicing chiropractor, my ability to realign and, in many cases, relax the ligaments and muscles in a pregnant woman’s pelvis has led to what is now known as the Webster Technique, a method that helps breech babies to turn themselves, naturally.
If you know someone that would like to get adjusted and they are pregnant, be sure and share this handout with them, or give them one of my business cards so they can call me and make an appointment to talk about their pregnancy and chiropractic.
