Approximately one-half of all women report experiencing some level of back pain during their pregnancy, causing some expecting mothers to feel that aches and pains are normal and to be expected when you're carrying a child.
However, the reality is that this doesn't have to be the case. The staff at Richart Chiropractic and Functional Medicine has helped many women in Northfield experience a healthy and happy pregnancy.
Chiropractic care can often help make pregnancy more enjoyable by effectively treating misalignments caused by the growing fetus, thus creating a more comfortable pregnancy and delivery.
There are other advantages of engaging in chiropractic during pregnancy as well. By treating subluxations and aligning the spine, the brain is better able to communicate with the rest of your body, which means more stable hormone levels, fewer headaches, less nausea, and more.
Studies have found that chiropractic during pregnancy is both effective and safe, which means that expecting mothers can enjoy the benefits of chiropractic physically as well as mentally.
