Prenatal Chiropractic Care in Media
For many women, bringing a child into the world is one the most rewarding and exciting aspects of life. It can also be one of the most stressful. Between preparing your home for a newborn, purchasing baby essentials, and even deciding on a name, we at Ritchie Chiropractic Health Center understand how overwhelming it can be. With so many preparations to be made, it can be easy to overlook how important it is to take care of your body.
Why should I get prenatal chiropractic care?
If you are pregnant, you don’t need us to tell you that your body is going through many complex physical changes. Carrying extra weight isn’t easy. You may be experiencing pain and discomfort in your neck, lower back, and pelvic joints as well as swelling in your legs and feet. We at Ritchie Chiropractic Health Center know that adjusting to such physical changes can be difficult, especially without the aid of prescription medications. If you are like many soon-to-be mothers you may have sought the advice of another mother to find an alternative, more holistic method to alleviate your discomfort, which may have brought you here. If so, you can take a deep breath, they directed you to the right place. Relief is at hand.
What does prenatal chiropractic care do?
Prenatal chiropractic care aims to address many of the complex changes a woman goes through during her pregnancy. When prenatal chiropractic adjustments are performed by a certified chiropractor, they can have the following benefits:
- Aligns the spine and pelvis
- Eases delivery and reduces labor time
- Improves fetal positioning
- Controls morning sickness and symptoms of nausea
- Relieves back, neck, and joint pain
- Reduces the chance of miscarriage
- Increases endorphin and serotonin levels
Is maternal chiropractic care safe?
Absolutely. Like prenatal yoga and massages, prenatal chiropractic is a safe and drug-free alternative aimed to alleviate pain you may be feeling as a result of your pregnancy. Ritchie Chiropractic Health Center only uses chiropractic adjustment techniques that are safe for both you and your unborn child.
What should I expect at my first appointment?
Like any chiropractic care, one of our certified chiropractors will perform a thorough spinal analysis and a complete health history, including your diet, exercise, age, as well as any other necessary information pertinent to your care and condition. Our comprehensive approach to prenatal chiropractic care ensures that you are getting the individual attention you need and deserve.
