Spinal Care in pregnancy: The Advantages of Prenatal Spinal Care
SPINAL CARE MAKES FOR EASIER PREGNANCY
During pregnancy, the body undergoes several physiological and endocrinological changes that result in spinal and pelvic misalignment. Hormones loosen the ligaments in the mother’s body that combined with a lowered centre of gravity and the baby’s added weight can create great stress for the mother specially in 3 key areas (Lower back, Neck and Pelvic region). Aside from being painful and generally uncomfortable for the mother, this can also result in several complications during delivery.
PRENATAL SPINAL CARE IS SAFE
We use a special chiropractic table that accounts for the physical changes that occur during pregnancy in the female body. As well a special chiropractic table we use a tool which is pain free and avoids the need for the more traditional chiropractic manipulation techniques which require awkward positions.
WE USE INTEGRATOR
The Integrator is the only spinal adjusting instrument that was developed out of a randomized clinical trial, blinded and with placebo control. Due to the results of the research, it is also the only chiropractic instrument with FDA approval.
The Integrator has true force adjustment as well as the choice of three tip sizes, shapes, and density characteristics to allow the spinal specialists to adjust children, pregnant women, and people of all ages in an extremely safe manner. The Integrator is a legally marketed medical device for the adjustment of the Vertebral Subluxation; only available to licensed Doctors of Chiropractic.
BENEFITS OF SPINAL CARE DURING PREGNANCY
While seeing a spine expert can relieve pain, seeing a spine health specialist during pregnancy can have these added benefits:
- Help with sciatica
- Reduce potential pelvic miss alignment which can have an impact on delivery
- Reduce lower back pain, neck pain, and joint pain
- Reduced need for pain medication due to above symptoms
- Prevent negative long term postural changes
However, the two biggest benefits of prenatal spinal care concern making delivery as easy for the mother as possible. They are restoring pelvic balance and maximizing room for the baby in the womb.
RESTORING PELVIC BALANCE
When pregnant, everything changes from the way a woman walks to the way she sleeps. Spinal care will help with postural discomfort and adjust the body for optimal health and wellness by realigning the spine and restoring pelvic balance. Through our unique technique (Integrator), we can naturally and safely relieve many of the aches and pains associated with pregnancy.
MAXIMIZING SPACE FOR THE BABY
When the pelvis is misaligned, it can limit the space the baby has in the womb. This makes it harder for the baby to move into the desired position for delivery, potentially affecting the quality of the birth. However, with spinal care, the pelvic balance can be restored, and this can often be easily solved.
