Most people don't even think about chiropractic for those pregnancy pains. We have a list from Dr. Jeanne Ohm that includes benefits for mother AND baby.
Here it is:
Benefits for the mother:
-prepares the pelvis for an easier pregnancy and birth by creating a state of balance in pelvic bony structures, muscles, and ligaments
-removed torsion of the ligaments that support the uterus, thus potentially reducing aberrant tension to the woman’s uterus
-reduces interference to the mother’s vital nerve supply which controls and coordinates all of her systems and functions
-by improving maternal function we are decreasing the potential for unnecessary intervention
To the infant:
-reduces interference to the mother’s central nervous system allowing for better development
-pelvic balance allows the baby greater room to develop without restrictions to its forming cranium, spine, and other skeletal structures
-offers the baby room to move into the best possible position for birth
-with proper fetal positioning, there is significant decrease in dystocia (abnormal labor, or lack of ‘progression’ of labor) and the resulting birth trauma caused by intervention.
Women who have chiropractic care during pregnancy report feeling relaxed during appointments. This is a low impact technique to ensure the comfort of momma and baby.
