Having a baby should be the most joyful time of your life, but sadly this is not always the case. Anything from uncomfortable pregnancies to difficult, painful births can make this time in a woman’s life very challenging, taking away from the joys of childbirth. At Travis Chiropractic, Dr. Heath Travis and his professional staff are very familiar with the chiropractic approach to prenatal care and the significant effects it can have at every stage of pregnancy. If you are unfamiliar with chiropractic prenatal care or chiropractic in general, it is time to change that. From treatments for vertigo, ADHD, and trigeminal neuralgia to prenatal and infant care, the world of chiropractic reaches much further than most patients imagine.
Chiropractic prenatal care is similar to other types of chiropractic care. It addresses the root of the body’s issues naturally rather than looking for quick fixes or ways to mask pain and suffering. In a world where more and more people are looking for ways to make their baby’s birth as natural as possible, the time could not be more right for chiropractic prenatal care.
Prenatal chiropractic is a broad subject. Many women look to prenatal chiropractic care to prep their bodies for healthy and quick labor. After all, the body is perfectly capable of delivering a baby naturally as it has for ages before modern medicine. However, many precautionary steps can be taken to properly prepare the body to make the birthing process a much smoother experience for both the mother and her baby.
Often, a chiropractor will focus on making the body the healthiest it can be for pregnancy. This can look like changing the patient’s diet, exercise routine, and making physical adjustments to the patient’s body to set her up for birthing success. A woman’s body goes through significant changes during pregnancy and labor to allow the baby to grow and exit the body. By prepping the patient’s hips and spine for birth, a chiropractor can help a patient’s body be as healthy and flexible as possible. This allows for the significant changes in labor to take much less of a toll on the body and ease the birthing process.
After labor, even the most natural and healthy deliveries can stress a baby’s spine, leading to complications. From poor sleep to problems breastfeeding, a misaligned spine can make a baby’s first year far more complicated than it has to be. The team at Travis Chiropractic knows how nerve-wracking it can be for a new parent to allow anyone to have their baby, let alone make chiropractic adjustments, which is why they use special techniques to ensure the safety and comfort of their adjustments.
