Pregnancy is widely regarded as one of the most important and yet stressful times in a woman’s life. Although many people will only talk about the wonder of the changes a female body goes through during the pregnancy period, there are also some not so glamorous things that happen. These can include back pain, pelvic pain, hip pain, stress, migraines, high blood pressure, increased heart rate, and so many more. While we aren’t meaning to put you off having children in any way, we also think that it is extremely important for women to know exactly what they can expect to go through other than the usual complaints such as swollen ankles and morning sickness.
What many people do not know is that chiropractic care is perfectly safe for you do undergo while pregnant as long as you let your chiropractor know ahead of time. This way, the doctor can change positions or force with which they adjust your muscles and joints to optimize safety and comfort for you and your baby. Pregnancy brings a lot of aches and pains, but chiropractic care offers you a safe and drug free way to deal with these discomforts so that you can rest easily in regards to the safety of your child.
Chiropractors are also able to create a dietary plan for you while you are pregnant. Pregnant women and their babies need special nutrients and cannot safely eat certain things which you may not have been aware of before. In talking to your chiropractor, you will be able to figure out just what you can safely ingest in order to have as healthy and easy a pregnancy as you can possibly make it. While there is no way for us to make every pregnancy go perfectly, we most certainly will do everything we can to keep you and your baby safe and sound.
Chiropractors can also direct you in an exercise program which will help you remain active through your pregnancy. Unless you are told to be on bed rest, it is normally good to remain as mobile as possible during this time. Although it can be rough, even simple stretches are better than nothing and you can speak about that in length here at DiBella Chiropractic. Come on in and see how much better you feel after a meeting with one of our doctors!
