Pregnancy Chiropractic Specialists
Changes that affect your spine can lead to considerable discomfort during pregnancy, such as headaches and lower back pain. Correcting these changes can provide relief for many pregnancy symptoms. Better Health by Design, located in Cumming, Georgia, offers chiropractic treatments to support wellness during pregnancy and relieve symptoms associated with spinal problems.
Pregnancy Q & A
Changes in your body, including additional weight as your baby grows, can cause a number of symptoms that range from mild to severe. These include:
- Lower back pain
- Ankle and foot swelling
Chiropractic treatments provide a noninvasive method of easing these symptoms, so you aren’t at risk of infections, bleeding, and other surgical complications. Chiropractic care also offers an alternative option if you want to avoid certain types of medications during pregnancy.
Is chiropractic care safe for pregnant women?
Chiropractic care, including manual adjustments, is generally safe for women during pregnancy.
Better Health by Design ensures that you’re as comfortable as possible during treatments. These adjustments shouldn’t hurt or cause you any significant discomfort. They also don’t put you or your baby at risk as other forms of treatments can, such as certain medications.
If you have any concerns about treatments during pregnancy or if you have any underlying health issues, the team at Better Health by Design can determine if chiropractic care is suitable for you.
How does chiropractic treatment benefit pregnant women?
Chiropractic adjustments manipulate your spinal discs in order to bring them into the right alignment. Changes that occur during pregnancy can cause these discs to move out of their normal position, which puts pressure on the surrounding nerves. Adjusting these discs so that they’re back in place eases this pressure, which helps relieve pain, stiffness, and other problems that occur during pregnancy. They also relieve muscle tension, which can help you feel less stressed.
Do chiropractic adjustments have an effect on the baby?
Chiropractic adjustments don’t cause any harm to your baby during pregnancy. In fact, this type of care can have some benefits for your baby.
Spinal adjustments at Better Health by Design correct misalignments that affect the pelvis. These misalignments can make it harder for your baby to turn to the right position for delivery. Realigning the pelvis gives your baby room to turn around before delivery, which reduces the risk of needing a C-section. Your baby will also have more room to move around in the womb.
