Prenatal Care at Mass Sport & Spine in Westwood and Walpole
During pregnancy, a woman’s body goes through an abundant number of changes. Unfortunately, along with these changes comes the possibility of discomfort or pain. If you are experiencing problematic symptoms as a result of your pregnancy, making an appointment with one of our chiropractors in the Westwood or Walpole clinic can help. Here are some prenatal care tips to keep in mind and how our chiropractic team can help you find relief when discomfort settles in.
The Difference between Prenatal and Routine Chiropractic Care
There is a slight difference between routine and prenatal chiropractic care. Regular chiropractic care is the maintaining of your spine, discs, nerves around the spinal column, and bones within the body. Prenatal chiropractic care includes this maintenance as well as the pelvis region, as this area is affected due to the added weight of your body as your pregnancy progresses. Treatment is conducted with your pregnancy in mind, using gentle procedures that bring you relief rather quickly.
The Safety of Chiropractic Treatment When Pregnant
Chiropractic treatment does not involve the use of any type of medication. During pregnancy, this type of treatment is desirable as it is non-invasive and will not pose a risk to your unborn baby. At our practices, we provide treatment with your comfort in mind. Our chiropractors are seasoned in finding ways to relieve stress upon the body and reduce pain using gentle measures that soothe. While most chiropractors treat pregnant patients, finding one with specialty experience with prenatal chiropractic care is best. We provide our patients with comfortable tables with ample room to rest while adjustments are conducted.
Benefits Obtained With Chiropractic Care during Pregnancy
There are several advantages to having chiropractic care during pregnancy. Overall, you will maintain a healthier body so you have a healthier pregnancy. Chiropractic treatment can help minimize nausea, allowing you to enjoy your pregnancy to the fullest. Routine treatments will align your pelvis and improve your posture. Many women find this will reduce the amount of time you are in labor and decrease delivery time as well. This, in turn, reduces the potential for cesarean birth. Spinal adjustments during pregnancy relieve aching pain in the back, neck, or shoulders as well.
