Chiropractic Care for Pregnancy in Brighton MI
Have you considered chiropractic care for pregnancy in Brighton? We all know someone that has complained of a lot of low back pain while pregnant and we have all heard the stories about what labor and child birth can be like.
You may wonder what Chiropractic has to do with having a healthy pregnancy, but they go hand-in-hand. With your body going through many changes over the next several months it is important that not only is your body working at 100% so you can be at optimal health, but also so your baby (babies) can have optimal health, too.
Not only can Chiropractic help with some of the pain and discomfort you are feeling, but many studies have been done on Chiropractic helping with a breech baby.
During pregnancy, a women’s body is undergoing a number of different changes to accommodate the growing person. Due to the weight that that is gained, a mother’s center gravity changes. It shifts to the front of her pelvis and this is not a natural position so it results in added stress and discomfort in the low back and various joints in the pelvis. Throughout the pregnancy, as the baby grows, mom gains more weight and the back becomes more stressed and causes the lordotic curvature in her low back to increase. If there has been a history of low back problems, there is a good chance that the pregnancy will aggravate the condition. This may lead to difficultly performing daily routines and create difficulties in labor.
According to the American Pregnancy Association, 50-70% of pregnant women experience low back pain at some point. The back pain generally peaks around the third trimester because the baby gains the most weight. There are many more affects that the stress on the low back can create such as leg cramps, abdominal cramping, constipation and much more.
