Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy

Side View Pregnant Woman with Back Pain

Zumbrota Chiropractic has just received a Belloost pregnancy pillow that allows a very comfortable way to receive chiropractic care throughout pregnancy. There are many reasons to chiropractic adjustments while you are pregnant and here are a number of important points considering the changes that occur to the spine and pelvis that you should consider during pregnancy:

  • Forward head posture often leads to:
    • headaches
    • neck pain
    • thoracic outlet syndrome
    • carpal tunnel symptoms
    • mid back pain
    • pain between your shoulder blades
    • arm pain, numbness, and/or tingling
  • Increased thoracic kyphosis (curvature) is also a leading cause of:
    • headaches
    • neck pain
  • Accentuation of the lumbar lordosis (curvature) frequently causes:
    • lower back pain
    • constipation
    • back stiffness
  • Forward tilt of the pelvis leads to:
    • lower back pain
    • hip pain
    • sciatica/leg pain
    • pubic pain
  • Flattening of the arches of your feet can cause:
    • ankle pain
    • heel pain
    • foot pain
    • plantar fasciitis
    •  Changes to your normal way of walking (modified gait) can irritate the sacro-iliac (SI) joints, hips, and knees

Chiropractic care is not only extremely beneficial for athletes, the general population, children, and the elderly but is also of paramount importance for women who are pregnant. Here is a short, but significant list of the benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy:

  • Relief of aches and pains from the list above
  • Reduction of labor and delivery time
  • Controlling symptoms of nausea
  • Reduces interference to the mother’s nervous system which is vitally important for coordinating all body systems and fuctions
  • Generally maintains a healthier pregnancy and deceases the risk caused by restricted space in the uterus due to misalignments of the pelvis
  • The literature has shown that women who undergo chiropractic care throughout their pregnancy undergo a significantly lower rate of cesarean sections (C-sections)

Using a specially designed “pregnancy” pillow allows for an very easy and comfortable way to be adjusted throughout your whole pregnancy.
