Chiropractic care in El Cajon and surrounding areas during pregnancy is an important part of pregnancy care.
A woman’s body undergoes an amazing amount of changes during pregnancy. As her baby grows, her musculoskeletal system must adjust accordingly to accommodate and prepare for delivery. Chiropractic care in El Cajon helps her body to stay aligned as these changes occur and also helps to keep the nervous system functioning at its optimal level.
Many pregnant women experience low back pain and hip/pelvic pain. These discomforts are the result of the stresses put on the body by the “rapid growth” of the baby and the changes the body must undergo to accommodate those adjustments. This causes stress in these areas, resulting in spinal misalignments, (or subluxations) which then causes pain and dysfunction.
My goal as a chiropractor is to correct the subluxations or spinal misalignments in the pelvis to help balance the uterus and allow the baby to get into a better position. Chiropractic adjustments for a pregnant woman in El Cajon are specific, gentle, and safe.
Besides increasing a pregnant woman’s comfort level, an aligned pelvis can result in a quicker, safer, and easier birth. When a baby is in breech or transverse position a cesarean section is almost always performed. Helping the baby to get into a proper head-down position by balancing the pelvis and ligaments helps to avoid c-section due to baby positioning.
