Are you pregnant or currently trying to conceive? If you answered yes, you’re going to want to finish reading this blog to see just how our Mankato Chiropractic office can help you. During pregnancy, there are several physiological and anatomical changes that occur in preparation for creating the environment necessary for the developing baby. A variety of things could result in a misaligned spine or joints during pregnancy, including weight gain, protruding abdomen, increased back curve, pelvic changes, and postural adaptation. Chiropractors are able to perform adjustments and stretches to help correct for these changes. This can help you establish pelvic balance and alignment, creating more room for developing the baby and allowing the child to get into the best possible position for delivery.
Having trouble conceiving?
Well, your entire body, including your reproductive organs are controlled by your nervous system. This nervous system is protected by your spine. The nerves responsible for the proper function of your reproductive organs are located in your lower back. Many times, a misalignment of the spine in this area can cause those nerves to not function at 100%. This is why it is so important to have your spine checked if you are trying to get pregnant.
According to the American Pregnancy Association, there are many benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy including:
*maintaining a healthier pregnancy
*controlling symptoms of nausea
* reducing the time of labor and delivery
* relieving back, neck, or joint pain
* prevent a potential cesarean delivery
Call your Mankato Chiropractor today to discuss these benefits and get started on your way towards a comfortable, enjoyable pregnancy.
