Prenatal Chiropractic Care
Empower Health offers both Pre-Conception Chiropractic Care and Prenatal Chiropractic Care.
Pre-Conception Chiropractic Care is when parents start treatment before conceiving a child to first correct unidentified health issues in order to prevent those issues from being passed down or affecting the pregnancy.
Prenatal Chiropractic Care is caring for an already pregnant mother so we can ensure she has the healthiest birth possible, to the best of our abilities. We use tables that adjust for a pregnant woman’s body, and we use techniques that avoid unneeded pressure on the abdomen. We will also provide you with exercises and stretches that are safe to use during pregnancy, and will prepare you for labor and delivery.
Benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy include:
- Maintaining a healthier pregnancy
- Controlling symptoms of nausea
- Reducing the time of labor and delivery
- Relieving back, neck or joint pain
- Preventing a potential cesarean delivery
During pregnancy, there are several physiological and endocrinological changes that occur in preparation for creating the environment for the developing baby.
- Protruding abdomen and increased back curve
- Pelvic changes
- Postural adaptations
Establishing pelvic balance and alignment is another reason to obtain chiropractic care during pregnancy. When the pelvis is misaligned it may reduce the amount of room available for the developing baby. This restriction is called intrauterine constraint. A misaligned pelvis may also make it difficult for the baby to get into the best possible position for delivery and can affect the mother’s ability to have a natural, non-invasive birth. Breech and posterior positions can interfere with the natural ease of labor and lead to interventions such as c-sections.
The nervous system is the master communication system to all the body systems including the reproductive system. Keeping the spine aligned helps the entire body work more effectively.
After birth, we can start Pediatric Chiropractic Care with children as young as an hour old through adulthood.
Empower Health also offers Postpartum Chiropractic Care to help new mothers speed up recovery time, aid their body in normalizing pelvic and spinal positions, and help correct their posture. Giving birth is an intense experience in which the body pushes itself, causing stress and pains to the mother that can last well after the baby arrives. Even if no immediate pain is felt, there is still need for chiropractic care during the postpartum period.
Seeking chiropractic care within the first two weeks after giving birth may help to prevent headaches, shoulder problems, neck discomfort, muscle tension, lower back pain, sciatica, upper back pain, wrist and elbow pain, and more.
