Chiropractic for Moms-to-be…
Pregnancy is one of the most amazing things a woman can experience.
Chiropractic is important for pregnant women for several reasons…
The first is due to the intimate relationship between the spine and nervous system. The nervous system controls and coordinates everything in the body, including the development of the growing baby. When the bones in the spine misalign, they reduce the effectiveness and efficiency of the nerves that control everything. Imagine what would happen if the nerves going to the uterus were functioning at less than 100%. Would you be okay with your baby receiving less than everything it needed? Of course not! Chiropractors help restore normal function to the nervous system by restoring normal spinal function.
Secondly, the proper alignment of the pelvis is essential for the normal position of the baby and an easier delivery. Any misalignment of the pelvis can create torsion in the uterus, leading to in-utero constraint, which prevents the baby from moving freely. If the baby can’t get into the ideal position, labor is more difficult and less likely to result in a natural delivery. The Webster technique is a specialized chiropractic technique used to prevent in-utero constraint and assist the baby in finding the ideal position for birth. Dr. Miranda is certified in this technique and enjoys helping moms to have the birth that they desire.
Benefits of Chiropractic during pregnancy
Thousands of women use chiropractic during their pregnancy to improve their health and birthing experience. Many women benefit from shorter labors, less pain, fewer interventions, and increased satisfaction with their birthing experience while under chiropractic care.
After birth, it’s important to have your baby checked by a chiropractor to determine if stress from the birth process caused any misalignments in the spine. Chiropractors have successfully helped children with the following:
- Ear infections
- Respiratory difficulties
- Learning disabilities
- And many other problems
Chiropractic is a safe and natural option for infants and children.
