Safe, Gentle Care For a Healthy Pregnancy.

Safe, Gentle Care For a Healthy Pregnancy.

Pregnancy is a great time to seek chiropractic care! When you’re pregnant, your body undergoes dramatic structural and hormonal changes. These changes can affect your spine, nerves, ligaments, connective tissues, and ultimately your entire body. Regular chiropractic care during your pregnancy can help eliminate your aches and pains and keep body in top shape.

One of the most common problems pregnant women have is low-back pain. In fact, one study showed that 56% of pregnant women suffer from back pain, especially between the 5th and 7th months. Pain-killers are not an option while you’re pregnant because of their risk to your baby. Simply stated, chiropractic is a safe, drugless approach to ease your back pain during your pregnancy!

With gentle adjustments, chiropractic care can relieve your discomfort-safely and effectively. And regular care cans even help back pain chiropractic associated with delivery. A study of back pain during pregnancy and labor found that those women who received chiropractic care during pregnancy experienced less back pain during labor.  Chiropractic should be a part of your overall health plan for a safe, comfortable pregnancy.

Don’t be misled by thinking that chiropractic care is only for “back and neck pain.” The truth is, chiropractic care can resolve a number of health and structural problems. There’s never been a better time to find relief with chiropractic than right now!  Call Dr. Miller to find out he can help you.

During pregnancy, the stresses in the spine increase from the weight of the baby, resulting in back and leg pain as well as fatigue. Chiropractic adjustments are a gentle, safe, drug-free alternative for fast and effective relief.

Many suffering mothers-to-be are often told by their doctors that they need to wait until after the baby is born to get back and joint pain relief! Based on chiropractic results of caring for pregnant women for over a hundred years, we can say with complete confidence that chiropractic offers help long before the baby is born!

One study showed complete relief of low back pain when treatment included spinal adjustments as outlined in the study. In fact, 70% of patients in this study showed that adjustments alleviated back pain!!

Were excited about helping expectant moms to be as pain-free as possible during their pregnancy. After all, we are benefiting not only one life, but two!

It all starts with a consultation and thorough examination with Dr. Miller.  Contact us today.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • Will adjustments hurt my baby?
    Of course not. This is a common concern among parents who mistakenly think their child will receive adjustments like the ones they receive. Not only are adjusting techniques modified for each person’s size and unique spinal problem, an infant’s spine rarely has the long-standing muscle tightness seen in adults. This makes the energy needed to adjust a child’s spine considerably less than an adult’s does.
  • Will adjustments make my spine too loose?
    No. Only the spinal joints that are “locked up” receive adjustments. This allows weakened muscles and ligaments to stabilize and heal.
  • Pregnancy is natural. Why would I need chiropractic?
    Being born is a natural phenomenon. It’s what we’ve done to the birth process that has become increasingly suspect. In hospitals, birth is often treated like a disease. A newborn’s introduction to the world is often accompanied by a severe drop in temperature, loud noises and other insensitivities. The administration of drugs and anesthesia can have a profound effect on a newborn.
  • Will my medical doctor approve?
    First, you don’t need anyone’s approval to seek a chiropractic opinion about health issues affecting your child! The judgment of another health care expert is always helpful in the decision-making process. Medical practitioners keeping up with the latest pediatric chiropractic research are starting to understand the value of this natural, drug-free approach to better health.
  • What does my spine have to do with my baby?
    Pregnancy may be one of the best times to receive chiropractic care! While it’s always good to have an optimally functioning nervous system, it’s especially helpful now. Both mother and baby can benefit. Adjusting methods are adapted to a mother’s size, weight and condition. During this period of weight gain and hormonal changes, many mothers seek chiropractic care. Some report shorter and easier births.
