Pre and Postnatal Hillsboro Chiropractic Care
One of the most important times for a woman to seek chiropractic care is during and after pregnancy. Proper pre and postnatal chiropractic care leads to healthier pregnancies and greater comfort and reduced pain following delivery.
Prenatal Chiropractic Care
Prenatal chiropractic care can begin even before conception. Seeing a chiropractor before and while trying to conceive helps regulate the menstrual cycle and promotes the best possible uterine function. It also strengthens the body and makes it more flexible and balanced, which makes carrying pregnancy much easier.
Hillsboro chiropractic adjustments are also extremely beneficial during pregnancy. Seeing a chiropractor while pregnant can greatly decrease your discomfort and lead to a healthier pregnancy which, in turn, leads to easier labor and delivery. Studies have proved that women who receive chiropractic care while pregnant experience increased comfort during the third trimester. One study even showed that women who received chiropractic care had 24% shorter labor times, and 84% reported back pain relief.
Postnatal Chiropractic Care
Postnatal chiropractic care helps patients heal after having a baby. Going in for adjustments regularly also decreases the strain on the joints and muscles that many new moms feel as the result of lifting and carrying her child and nursing.
Without chiropractic intervention, mothers commonly experience lower back pain, upper back pain, headaches, neck pain, sciatica and even wrist or elbow pain. Visiting a chiropractor regularly within two weeks of giving birth so many of these problems can be prevented.
