Pregnancy is a joyous time, but women who are expecting can also face many difficulties. The challenges of carrying a baby until the time of birth can put a toll on the mother's body, especially the spine. Because of the nature of pregnancy, it's not recommended that expecting mothers use a great deal of medications for pain and discomfort. Pregnancy chiropractic care can help support a mother's body as she progresses in the pregnancy and can provide much needed pain relief safely and effectively at any trimester.
Although pregnancy affects each woman differently, the extra weight and strain on the spine can cause it to curve unnaturally and become painful as the pregnancy continues and the baby grows. The shift in weight often throws off the balance, which puts even more strain on the spinal column. Many pregnant women report lower back pain and sciatica during pregnancy as the additional weight in the front of the body pushes on the spinal column, compressing the delicate tissues and nerves surrounding the vertebrae. Additionally, compression of these critical nerves can cause other symptoms that are common in pregnancy, including increased nausea, headaches, and swelling of the hands and feet.
Fortunately, pregnancy pain relief can often be found with chiropractic care. Prenatal chiropractic care is a gentle, safe, and effective way to realign the spine, taking pressure off of nerves in the spine and promoting the body's natural healing process.
If you're pregnant and suffering from the aches and pains that are familiar to so many expecting mothers, a pregnancy chiropractor in Anchorage AK can help. At True Life Chiropractic, we utilize a wide variety of chiropractic techniques, including gentle manual manipulation of the spine to help put the spine back into proper alignment. Expectant mothers often need more frequent chiropractic care than the average person, since a pregnancy can cause the spine to become subluxated, or misaligned fairly easily and multiple times throughout the pregnancy.
While you may not always feel your best during your pregnancy, there's no need to assume that pain and discomfort are just something you have to accept since many medications are not recommended during pregnancy. You can get pregnancy pain relief quickly and easily with prenatal chiropractic care from an experienced Anchorage chiropractor. Many women who visit the chiropractor at regular intervals during their pregnancy report decreased pain in the lower back, fewer instances of sciatica and fast relief from existing sciatica, fewer headaches, and an overall better sense of health and wellness. Your chiropractor can work with your obstetrician to create a care plan that is unique to you and safe for both you and baby.
