Chiropractic Care Is Safe, Effective, and NATURAL during Pregnancy
At Liringis Chiropractic, we highly encourage women to seek chiropractic care during their pregnancies as a natural course of treatment and health management – both for mom and for baby. And if you are pregnant and suffering with neck or back pain, you need to look at chiropractic care at Liringis Chiropractic. Chiropractic care is safe to both you and your baby throughout pregnancy. Since baby development starts rapidly in the first few weeks and months, early in your pregnancy is the most important time to begin regular chiropractic care.
Chiropractic Care Helps Balance Your Changing Body during Pregnancy
Chiropractic care is essential for the best pregnancy care. The changes in the positioning of your body during pregnancy are completely natural, but these changes can also be stressful. Your body systems and organs are now providing for two people, and their optimal function is critical for your baby’s healthy development and well-being. During pregnancy, your spine and pelvis undergo many changes and adaptations to compensate for your growing baby. It is during this time that the risk of interference to your nervous system is increased. Specific chiropractic care, or adjustments, throughout your pregnancy enhances your nervous system function and provides a greater health potential to both you and your baby.
Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy Prepares You for a Better Childbirth Experience
Another important reason for chiropractic care throughout your pregnancy is to help establish balance in your pelvis. Various stresses and trauma may compromise your stature and gait, resulting in an improper balance of your pelvic muscles and ligaments (which support the growing uterus) and may create a less than optimum passage for your baby during childbirth.
Regular chiropractic care during pregnancy also stimulates the nervous system to enable proper functioning of your reproductive organs, thus supporting your baby’s needs throughout your pregnancy and during delivery. Dr. Liringis, Dr. Hussey and Dr. Williams, through their natural, drug-free techniques, are committed to comforting not only you, but also your baby during pregnancy and delivery.
Sometimes all you need is a small adjustment to bring better balance to your body and reduce any symptoms of pain or discomfort without the need for drugs. Chiropractic care during pregnancy allows your developing baby to grow into your future beautiful, healthy child. By improving the balance and alignment in both your spine and pelvis, your baby is encouraged to adopt the optimal birthing position, thus reducing your risk of a breech position during delivery.
Chiropractic Care and Fertility
Chiropractic Care can also be an essential way to solve some fertility issues. For example, Dr. Liringis had a patient who had been trying to get pregnant for more than 2 years. Dr. Liringis adjusted her on a Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. And 10 days later, she was pregnant!
We also urge you to continue chiropractic care for both you and your baby after childbirth. The process of childbirth can certainly be stressful on a mother’s body. That’s why we encourage you to include chiropractic care in the weeks and months following your delivery. We’ll help get your body realigned and back into a balance so that you can enjoy these early days with your new baby.
In addition, chiropractic care can be essential for your newborn baby, as the childbirth process can be stressful on their body, too. For example, a patient of Dr. Liringis had a sister with a newborn baby. The baby had cried almost constantly for eight weeks. Medical doctors thought that the baby was suffering from colic or other digestive issues. As it turns out, during the birthing process, the baby’s shoulder had become dislocated. With one simple chiropractic adjustment to the baby’s shoulder, the crying stopped and the baby’s shoulder was healed! Mom and dad were finally able to enjoy a happy, healthy child!
