Chiropractic for Pregnancy in Orange Park?

many women use chiropractic care throughout their pregnancy

The physical stress of pregnancy can lead to a great deal of discomfort. It's common for women to visit a chiropractic office in Orange Park regularly for low back pain, as well as other related issues, such as sciatica, leg cramps and constipation. This can lead to difficulty performing daily tasks as well as difficulties in labor.

Chiropractic treatment for pregnancy can be an outstanding source of relief for back pain. Many women also comment that the birthing process was easier after having undergone chiropractic treatments. The following article takes a more in-depth look at the discomfort caused by pregnancy and explains exactly how chiropractic treatment can help.

A woman's body goes through major change as it carries, protects and prepares to bring another human life into the world. The changes to the female body during pregnancy include both hormonal and physical. The physical changes can lead to many joint misalignments especially in the spine and pelvis. Studies show that approximately 50 percent of pregnant women will experience back or hip pain at some point before delivery. Regular Chiropractic care can help reduce the pain and discomfort a mother might be dealing with.

The nerves that travel to all other parts of the body have their origin in the spine. When the spine is compressed, these nerves can become irritated causing the pain to radiate to other areas of the body. Sciatica is a condition commonly stimulated by pregnancy, involving pain that radiates from the lower back all the way down the legs.

If a previous issue exists with the alignment of the spine, and there has been a history of lower back problems, pregnancy will often aggravate the condition. Pregnancy can cause the spine to become misaligned to the point that it does not simply go back into place once the pregnancy is complete. This can make the tasks that become necessary once the child is born, such as carrying a baby on your front or back, breast-feeding, and bending over to lift and pick things up, painfully difficult.

Prenatal Chiropractic Care

The effects of misaligned joints can cause problems for both mommy and baby. The pelvis is especially important, this is where the baby resides until delivery. When there is a unbalanced pelvis it will constrict the amount of space the baby has to move and developed. A lack of room for growth can lead to all types of problems such as baby not being able to move into proper position, causing distress leading to a longer more complicated delivery.

Regular Chiropractic care not only aids in the reduction of pain and discomfort, the adjustment is also effecting the overall health of mommy and baby.

As a mother's body changes and misalignments occur, there is also the possibility of pressure being placed on the nerves at the sight of joint misalignment. This nerve pressure will decrease communication and decrease function. At Agape Chiropractic we focus on increasing function and allowing the body to operate at its highest potential.
