Prenatal Chiropractic Care
Gentle chiropractic care during pregnancy can help you and your baby achieve a healthier pregnancy and delivery. As mom's pelvis supports her growing uterus, any imbalance in the pelvis may lead to a condition called intrauterine constraint. Intrauterine constraint affects the way the uterus is supported causing it to torque. For baby, this means limited space available for the developing spine. In addition to hormonal and structural changes, this added stress on the pelvis often leads to low back pain in mom.
Because mom's body systems are functioning for two, any interference to nerve transmission can compromise the well-being of both mom and baby. Doctors of Chiropractic specialize in restoring harmony within the nervous system. Due to overwhelming benefits of chiropractic care, moms are now incorporating spinal alignments into their prenatal care throughout their pregnancy. Beginnings a regular chiropractic routine during your pregnancy can benefit in a shorter labor because your pelvis will be in better alignment for the birth of your little one.
How Chiropractic Care Supports the Pregnant Patient
With increased interest in a natural birthing process and in an effort to avoid a C-section, more women are incorporating chiropractic into their prenatal care. Hormonal changes cause mom’s ligaments to become lax, increasing instability in her spine and pelvis. Spinal and pelvic misalignment not only lead to back pain, but other consequences for mom and her developing baby. Pelvic misalignment compromise baby’s available space within the womb. If baby’s ability to move freely and develop is compromised the resulting fetal position may hinder the growth of the spine and may also cause a malposition during the pregnancy. Often times, this malposition results in a C-section or other medical intervention, such as forceps or vacuum extraction. In addition, chiropractic care has been shown to decrease mom’s labor and delivery time. In addition, receiving chiropractic care benefits both mom and baby by decreasing stress and contributing toward baby’s optimal positioning for a safer and easier birth.
Just as dental health is important early in life, so is spinal health. Infants and children respond readily to chiropractic and usually require only short-term care. Common infant ailments like colic, reflux, nursing difficulties, torticollis, constipation and plagiocephaly. Common childhood ailments like ear discomfort, asthma, digestive ailments, bed-wetting, leg cramps, and constipation may be associated with spinal misalignment. Help is available through gentle chiropractic touches.

Because the body systems do not function in an isolated manner, Functional Medicine looks at the body as a whole and exams its interconnected systems. Functional Medicine allows practitioners to diagnose the root of the problem(s) through a variety of lab tests available. For instance, if you are having digestive issues, your body is probably having difficulty with blood sugar balancing, hormones, and/or adrenal glands.
