Your Chiropractor Can Help During Pregnancy
Pregnancy is an exciting time in life. However, growing another human also brings physical changes and discomfort. Expectant mothers in San Antonio have come to Dr. Phillips Chiropractic Nutrition & Wellness with a variety of complaints. These include back pain, nausea, difficulty sleeping, and more. Our family practice offers cutting edge technology and exciting new therapy modalities to help you get all-natural pain relief.
Pregnancy Aches and Pains & Chiropractic Solutions
Are you experiencing back and neck pain? It’s easy to see why. A growing belly changes your center of balance and stresses the spine. Throwing the spine out of alignment creates a chain reaction as other joints are stressed. Your muscles also need to work harder when you sit up and move around. Meanwhile, leg pain is another common complaint. During pregnancy, the sciatic nerve may be irritated by the growing belly. This pain may radiate down your hip, buttocks, or leg.
Your maternity and pediatric chiropractor will discuss your symptoms. We will likely recommend gentle spinal adjustments. These adjustments are carefully targeted to give you pain relief without any danger to the baby. Our chiropractor has been trained in the use of completely safe techniques. If you’re uncomfortable at any point, you can always ask to stop.
Other Pregnancy-related Complaints
If you’re experiencing morning sickness and difficulty sleeping, you have lots of company. It may not seem intuitive how a chiropractor can help with your nausea. However, spinal realignments can balance your hormones and improve the functioning of your nervous system. This rebalancing may lessen or eliminate your morning sickness.
Sleeping issues are commonly caused by anxiety or back pain. Chiropractic care and massage treatments can be wonderfully soothing and rejuvenating. They help you let go of racing thoughts and get a good night’s sleep. The pain relief offered by well-placed spinal adjustments can help you feel a lot more comfortable. A chiropractor with experience in maternity care can advise you on supporting your body, perhaps with pillows, to reduce the pain when you’re lying down.
