CHIROPRACTICE CARE AND PREGANCY
Chiropractors look more at the body as a whole and are concerned with getting to the root cause of pain and dysfunction instead of just treating or masking symptoms. Chiropractors treat subluxation, which is when the spine has improper motion or position affecting nerve communications between your brain and your body. When proper nerve communication is disrupted it can result in pain and poor function in the neck, back and organs, as well as illness. Our nervous system runs through our entire body so when something is misaligned in one place it can easily affect other parts of our body. Getting a chiropractic adjustment when you are not pregnant is a great way to relieve discomfort, align the spine and treat and prevent various problems. So getting adjusted when you are pregnant is even more important because the mother’s body is going through so many changes and the health of the mother is so connected to the health of the baby.
