Being pregnant is a wondrous event in a woman’s life. Unfortunately, there are a lot of downsides with bringing a child into the world. Carrying an eight pound baby on the inside of you means that your body has to undergo drastic changes to accommodate it. These changes result in pain, stiffness, and lack of mobility. At Twin Creeks Health, we have special pregnancy chiropractic care to help your body adjust during this period.
Prenatal Massage Therapy
The burden of carrying a heavy child around can get cumbersome. It can cause pain, stress, and tension. That is why we offer prenatal massage therapy. Our massage therapists provide a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere for you while they work out the kinks in your back and torso. Massages can help to regulate any hormone fluctuations, give you a better mind-body connection, and even help to naturally reduce your stress levels.
Sciatic Nerve Pain Relief
Sciatica occurs when the sciatic nerve that runs from the lower back down the back of each leg is compressed. During the second and third trimester of pregnancy, it is especially common, as the baby puts pressure on this nerve.
Luckily, we have a solution for this! Our chiropractors utilize the Webster Adjustment Technique, which is a specialized method of adjusting pregnant women. Through this technique, we can help to correctly align the pelvis and spine, minimizing pressure on the nerve and relieving your back pain. It also has the additional benefit of reducing intrauterine constraint, which is likely to help the baby move into the birth canal easier.
Other Benefits of Chiropractic Care during Pregnancy
Chiropractic care during pregnancy has been shown to help with a number of other side effects, including reducing nausea and joint pain. It also helps to reduce the time of labor and delivery, giving you an easier birth experience. You can even reduce the potential of have a cesarean section during delivery by getting regular pelvic adjustments!
