Being pregnant, though a beautiful process, can often come with unwanted symptoms. You may think that you are simply out of luck, and must deal with these symptoms as just “part of being pregnant.” However, this is a myth! The truth is that chiropractic care can greatly diminish, if not completely abolish many of theses symptoms!

Pregnancy is stressful to the body and will cause something called vertebral subluxation. This is a shift in one of your vertebrae causing body imbalance, nerve pressure, and brain stem tension. The subluxation interferes with your nervous system to confuse your brain’s messages to your body. In worst case scenarios, this can cause the baby to move into the “breech birthing position.”

Because of this vertebral subluxation you will experience many symptoms including pain in the neck, shoulder, back , hip, knee, or foot. It can also cause headaches as well as constant pressure and tension in your muscles. However, you are in luck! These symptoms can be treated with chiropractic care!

Chiropractic care is also important for children in the developmental stage. When the body is growing, it can cause the spine to “slip” out of place. It is crucial for this to be fixed, or the muscles around the spine will get used to being out of place and can develop incorrectly.
