Benefits of Chiropractic Care for Pregnant Patients in Naperville, IL


Pregnancy is a time when many women experience pain and uncomfortable changes in their bodies, but chiropractic care can help. If you're a pregnant mother, your chiropractor can improve your quality of life and reduce your level of pain with safe, natural chiropractic techniques. At Symmetry Chiropractic & Acupuncture, we want the community of Naperville, IL to know how chiropractic care can improve comfort during pregnancy and even enable pregnant women to have a safer delivery.

Chiropractic Techniques Relieve Pain and Facilitate Safer Delivery

During pregnancy, the body's center of gravity shifts, putting extra strain on the joints and ligaments. In addition, hormones in the body cause parts of the pelvis to loosen to make way for the baby. It's at this time that women often find themselves straining to remain upright and balanced throughout the day, causing sore muscles and back pain. The following chiropractic techniques can help women during pregnancy:

  1. Spinal Adjustment. Spinal adjustment can help realign the vertebrae in the spine and help pregnant mothers stay balanced. Spinal adjustment can also help relieve pain in the back.
  2. Massage Therapy. Massage therapy helps relax muscles in the back and provide relief from pain.
  3. Exercises and Stretches. Chiropractors teach pregnant mothers how to perform stretches and exercises that will strengthen the muscles and prepare the mother for delivery.
  4. Nutritional advice. Chiropractors can also help expectant mothers eat the right foods to stay healthy throughout pregnancy.
