Pregnancy and Chiropractic

Chiropractic for your body and that of your baby

A chiropractor will check your spinal column for any sign of obstructions. Obstructions will damage the central nervous system and have an effect on the functioning of your whole body. If there is an obstruction in the spinal column, the chiropractor will remove this obstruction through chiropractic manipulation, and reduce pressure on the spinal column. A body without obstruction will function better and will give you higher levels of resistance to illnesses, which will improve your overall state of health. In fact, this is the essence of Chiropractic.

The aforementioned also applies to pregnant women, whose bodies need to be as healthy and strong as possible to overcome the problems encountered during pregnancy and birth. Chiropractic ensures that your reproductive and other organs, vital during a healthy pregnancy, receive unimpeded nerve stimulation from the spinal column. The slightest obstruction can have a disadvantageous effect on the  mother and child.

For pregnant woman who have problems such as pre-eclampsia (toxemia during pregnancy), chiropractic manipulation can have a significant effect in normalizing the bodily functions.

Chiropractic normalizes the functioning of hypophysis, adrenalin, the uterus and the placenta. This can reduce delivery times by up to fifty or sixty percent, and fifty percent less medication is needed than for women who do not receive any chiropractic care during their pregnancy. Postnatal depression also occurs less frequently in chiropractic patients.

Chiropractic during pregnancy is safe and treatment can be carried out during the entire duration of the pregnancy. Ideally, women should check on any obstructions in the nervous system prior to conceiving.
