Chiropractic treatment can be very effective in minimizing the effects of physical stress being exerted on the body due to pregnancy. Chiropractors who treat pregnant patients will have a special table that adjusts to make room for the belly at any stage of pregnancy. Weight gain and changes in posture during pregnancy can result in misalignment of the pelvis and increased curvature of the back that can cause a significant amount of pain and discomfort.
Chiropractic treatment can help relieve stress occurring in the uterus by establishing balance in the pelvis. These treatments can also provide relief for other symptoms that occur during pregnancy such as morning sickness and nausea. It is always important to maintain healthy spinal alignment, especially during this important stage of life.
