It is a common misconception that women who are pregnant should not stop in to visit a chiropractor for treatment. However, there is nothing at all wrong with continuing to see our team when you are expecting, and in fact, it could prove to be beneficial through your pregnancy and during delivery. According to AmericanPregnancy.org, there are no dangers involved in chiropractic care for women who are expecting. Here is a closer look at a few things you may want to know if you are expecting and want to stop in to receive pregnancy chiropractic care in Murfreesboro.
If you are pregnant and come in for an appointment, one of the biggest differences you will see is the equipment that is used during treatment, especially if you are far enough into the pregnancy that you belly has started to swell. A pregnancy cushion will be used on the exam table that has an opening for your growing tummy, which makes it possible for you to lie on your stomach while the chiropractor does adjustments. Additionally, our doctor will take great caution during the session to avoid putting any pressure on your unborn baby.
Pregnancy completely changes a lot of aspects about a woman's body, but women do not always know just how much stress these changes can place on the spinal column and other musculoskeletal areas. Your protruding abdomen can have a direct effect on the curvature of your spine, which can put a lot of stress on all areas of your body and cause a great deal of back pain. Additionally, without appropriate attention to the tendency to stand and walk different to accommodate the new weight in front, it could have permanent effects on your overall posture. Pelvic changes can also cause a great deal of discomfort while you are expecting, even causing pain in your hips, knees, and lower extremities.
Intrauterine constraint occurs when a fetus does not have enough room to naturally pass through the birth canal during labor. This condition can be relative to pelvic changes that occur throughout the pregnancy. By seeing a chiropractor, you can make sure that the pelvic changes that take place are not causing misalignment of your body. Additionally, the spinal column is the central point of the body's entire nervous system, which means that keeping your spine in line and healthy, can help contribute to a less stressful delivery.
