Why You Should Get Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy
Unfortunately Dr. Nicholls (Webster Certified Practicioner) no longer works at our clinic. However, our current Chiropractors offer safe and gentle Pediatric Chiropractic Care!
Are you pregnant and looking for a Webster Certified prenatal Chiropractor to take care of you and your unborn baby? Pregnancy can be one of the most exciting times in a woman’s life while also bringing about many changes to her body.
Many of those changes are associated with the pelvis and lower back region which can have a big affect on not only the mother’s health, but also the development and birthing process of the child. Here are some reasons as to why receiving prenatal chiropractic care in Calgary would be beneficial to both yours and your unborn baby’s health.
#1 – It’s Safe
There are no known problems with receiving chiropractic care during pregnancy! All chiropractors receive training to work with the special needs of pregnant woman, especially those who are Webster Certified like Dr. Jacquelyn Nicholls.
This special technique trains chiropractors to work specifically with the pelvis and spine that promotes pregnancy wellness for both the mother and baby. That includes using advanced chiropractic tables that adjust properly for a pregnant woman’s body and special techniques that prohibit any unnecessary pressure on the womb.
Dr. Nicholls is also a member of the ICPA Webster Prenatal Care organization, reflecting her keen interest on providing some of the best prenatal chiropractic care in Calgary there is.
#2 – It’s Preventative
Receiving prenatal chiropractic care is one of the best forms of preventative treatment when pregnant, as the following can result in misalignment:
- Changes to the pelvis
- Increased curvature of the back and a protruding abdomen
- Adaptations to posture
Misalignment during pregnancy can reduce the amount of room there is inside the womb for the baby, possibly restricting its natural development.
A misaligned pelvis may cause problems during delivery as the baby will have a harder time moving into the best possible for the birthing process.
In short, misalignment can affect the mother’s chance of having a natural and non-invasive birth without any interventions such as a C-section, which can be caused by breech and posterior positions of the unborn baby.
#3 – It Relieves Symptoms
It has been shown that prenatal chiropractic in Calgary can provide many benefits for pregnant woman, including:
- Relief from back, neck and joint pain
- Reduction in labor time
- Control symptoms of nausea
- Prevent a possible caesarean (C-section) delivery
- Maintain a healthier pregnancy for both the baby and mother
Going into the birthing process with stable pelvis that moves more easily because of chiropractic treatments can result in a much shorter and more comfortable labor and delivery.
